Vanderbilt Pregame Stats - Unauthorized Edition

New, comments

(Disclaimer is copied directly from Joel's previous work.) Stats only describe "stuff that has already happened," they don't generally account for the strength of the opponents against which they have been accumulated (hello, MTSU! (yes, that joke's good twice)), and relying on them to predict future results is hazardous to the future of our nation.

(End Plagiarized Disclaimer)

With one challenge down, we now look forward to the "trap game". Personally, this is the game that worries me the most. It's a short road-to-road turnaround, we just had a hugely emotional win over a very tough opponent, and we head straight into another huge game against another very tough opponent. And on top of that, Vandy's home court is one of the oddest in the nation.

So with that, let's take a look at the stats and see what the season has shown us so far.

(Side note: This chart was created by massively plagiarizing Joel's previous charts. Without the benefit of Joel's tools, I had to make this the hard way - manual editing. Please fact-check this thing so I can get it right by gametime. Any editing will not be accompanied by slash-throughs so that the chart can stay pretty and readable.)

(Yeah, this pretty.)

Stats were tallied using StatSheet.com, with a huge nod to Joel for his previous work.
