To put it simply, Vanderbilt has been horrible this year and Derek Mason’s first season as the head coach in Nashville has been a disaster. I like Mason, and I think he’ll be a good head coach eventually, but this has not a good start to his head-coaching career.

  • My biggest complaint is how he’s handled the quarterback situation – shuffling four players in and out of games on what seems like a whim. Saturday, Mason will start his fourth different QB in the eighth game of the season, which is insane.

    Missouri, on the other hand, has a firmly entrenched quarterback in sophomore Maty Mauk. However, the Tigers have been uncharacteristically weak on offense for more than a month, and Mauk has been a major reason why. Don’t let the 42 points the Tigers scored last week against Florida fool you – most came on defense and special teams and was a result of a terrible Gators offense, not a good Mizzou offense.

    This is a weird one, but unless they get another huge performance on defense and special teams, 24 is too much for the Tigers to cover, even against Vanderbilt.
