Vanderbilt fan fed up, buys firederekmason.com
The Commodores have seen better days.
Last weekend’s setback to Ole Miss was another humiliating loss for Vanderbilt, so much so that longtime fan Kevin Anderson secured the rights to firederekmason.com early in the first quarter after the Rebels drove 75 yards on 11 plays on their opening possession.
In an interview with Kevin Procter of The Tennessean, Anderson said he’s had enough with the current regime after an 0-2 start following back-to-back nine-win seasons.
“Mason is a good coordinator, but he is incapable of being a head coach,” Anderson told the newspaper. “I don’t like to trash talk my team, but I don’t think they can win with Mason. (James) Franklin had a plan. He also included the fan base. Mason doesn’t understand the big picture. He doesn’t understand psychology.”
Vanderbilt’s offense is the main problem, ranking near the bottom of the FBS in scoring offense and total offense. The Commodores are the only team without an offensive touchdown this season and quarterback play’s been laughable at times.

Running back Ralph Webb’s been the only bright spot for the SEC’s worst team, averaging 5.2 yards per carry.
“Until the quarterback play is stable enough to move you through the other options in our offense you have to continue to use the run,” Mason said after Saturday’s loss. “And we can still eke more out of that run game. I mean it’s a good run game; it’s productive for us. We’ve just got to continue to find the matchups that we like and execute.”
