    I rarely enjoy college football, but this one has been crazy.

    I don't know much about Matthews, but the dude got absolutely drilled after making a catch, had his head slam to the ground, started throwing up all over the place, then he comes back in two plays later and Vandy converts a 4th and 18.

    Unreal. Guy is a warrior... I'm pretty sure he has a concussion.

    And now Ole Miss just took the lead again. WTF.

    That game was bonkers.

    I was rooting for Vandy too... unfortunately. Can't imagine how an actual Vandy fan felt after that.

    Yeah really good game for it to be opening night. Two teams up and coming, Ole Miss with a great recruiting class, both coming off bowl wins, and Jordan Matthews is an absolute beast. I believe he's related to Jerry Rice.

    Yeah that was a great game.. Too bad Jordan let that pass go through his hands at the end.

    I actually thought Vandy had the game on lock, until that long TD by Ole Miss..

    Jordan Matthews hit his head hard and threw up all on the field. I'm sure the medical trainers didn't evaluate him to the fullest.

    Great way to start the college season.

    I'm afraid Vandy will be back to 6-6 this season. Their defense is awful and that QB isn't any good.

    As sad as this is to say, I think UT will be better than them.

    If Matthews has a concussion, franklin is a real scum bag for letting him go back in.

    Franklin says "team thought the game was over".

    Well no sh*t, James. When you run out onto the fied like you just won the lottery, the team will probably act like you do.

    a**hat. Now do us all a favor and go lose your last 11 games, please. So you can take Vandy and phase back into complete irrelivency where you belong.

    Nah... I enjoy watching a college coach get into the game and get excited. If I was a high school player and saw a coach enjoying the game that much, it would cause me to think about playing for a coach that obviously cares.

    Just sayin'

    I'm not too shocked about Ole Miss' playing well with its young players... they did have the best signing class in the history of NCAA Football!

    Total jest! But, incredible signing class - and it shows well!

    Vandy's record last year was a farce. They beat one team with a winning record.
