RE: Steph 


Austin Monahan is another 6th year player. I think he has actually played some in 5 of the 6 years and both redshirt years were the result of injuries (no illnesses involved). If Vandy goes to a bowl he'll be the first Commodore ever to be a part of 3 VU bowl teams. Not sure if he played in the Music City but I think he did play in the Liberty.

Don't give basketball up Stephanie! That what our opponents are hoping you do. Stick with it. Get that Vanderbilt Masters Degree and help your friends and teammates to a future championship season!

More on Monahan. I remember interviewing him in 2010 in the preseason. He had already had an injury plagued career and had one redshirt season under his belt. I asked Monahan what it would be like to go through the season without an injury. He told me that it would be amazing to do that and his face just glowed as he discussed that. I never got to use the interview. The next day he injures his knee and is out for the season. Horrible. I see him about a week later at the Dore Jam fan day on crutches and ask him if he's coming back. He's like "hell yes, I'll be back." It kind of stunned me at the time because he had been injured so recently and I was thinking that he'd say he was going to give it some thought and see how the rehab goes but he was so blunt. He followed through too. Even though this guy doesn't play too much his leadership has been invaluable to the entire team. I don't know if you remember the UGA-VU coaches fiasco last season but big Monahan was the one player on both teams that stepped between the two coaches to ensure that they didn't go to blows.

Enough rambling though. Steph and Austin are two different persons. In the end she needs to do what is best for Stephanie. I wish her the best of luck in making that decision.

No, she wasn't at the game. She's still experiencing a lot of swelling in her knee and isn't getting out and around much.
