re: Rock groups of the Southeastern Conference - Cornelius
[quote]I’ll get reamed for this but The Band was 1 Southern boy (Levon) and a bunch of Canadians and New Yorkers. But since Levon was lead singer on their greatest hits, you get a pass.[/quote] The Band is a reach. The Hawks are probably more appropriately attributed to Arkansas. ...

re: Pct of losses by 7 points or fewer in the last decade - Cornelius
[quote]Bert was notorious for it. [/quote] Pretty incredible how many close games he lost. Petrino seemed to find a way to win the close ones, while Bert had a knack for losing them (unless it was Ole Miss). ...

re: Arkansas - When did this happen (2019 jerseys)? - Cornelius

re: Vandy Baseball 2000-2009. 129 SEC wins. 2010-2019. 189 SEC wins - Cornelius
[quote]Corbin started in 2003. Good try though.[/quote] Yes. So part of the contrast you are trying to make can be explained by Corbin not being at Vanderbilt for the 2000-2002 seasons, in which we only won 21 conference games (something Corbin has done in a singular season 4 times). It's alm...

re: Amazing night to cap off an amazing season - Cornelius
[quote]The Everett story was neat too[/quote] Makes this one very special, especially for those seniors who had to go through it. [quote]Replacing most of the offense will be the biggest challenge. [/quote] Will definitely be a challenge replacing the production from Bleday, Paul, and Scott. ...
