The conclusion that I have come to that makes the most sense to me is this. Someone at Butchug U had to make some type of deal /blackmailed someone very high up the VU ladder back in the day to allow them to become the “Tennessee” that we all have come accustomed to. They where the 1 team that had the most to gain from a Vanderbilt downfall; it has proven so through the years. There is no way on God’s green earth that they could have achieved what they did had VU continued on the path that it was on.
This is the only way I could justify the way their program has deteriorated with the streak of “bad juju” that has befallen them and our rise from the ashes at nearly the exact same time. As my mama say’s “God don’t like ugly”. I think there is something to that in this case.
This would make a great investigative documentary as it one of the greatest mysteries in NCAA football history I believe.
What say you?

At some point (not sure of exactly when) Vanderbilt decided not to commit to football at the level Tennessee and practically every other SEC school was committed. Our facilities are still not up to par with other SEC schools. Because the commitment wasn't there, we fell way behind.
The good news is, David Williams is committed to closing that gap. Facilities are being upgraded, the commitment to football is clear and recruits are taking notice. As good as the last two recruiting classes were, I think this years class will be better, and I expect Vandy to sign their first 5 star recruit in this class. The gap between Vandy and the rest of the SEC has closed and it will continue to close as long as the commitment stays. Vanderbilt has a very good product to sell to student athletes, especially once our facilities are up to par with the rest of the conference.

Neyland was hired with the explicit instruction to beat Vandy and almost without exception he did just that.Certain bits of unlucky happenstance lent a hand to the conspiracy as well such as death penalty SMU beating Vandy with Dallas native, and brand new Vandy Chancellor Joe Wyatt, in attendance. Wyatt wrote off football after that and AD Hoolihan couldn't have done more things wrong for Vandy athletics in his tenure.
