Lance Smith fka Vandy Lance 


Has Lance been on campus since UF hoops game?

Odds he will attend Super Regional?

If we were to win and advance to Omaha, would he attend? I don't know if VUPD would send anyone to an away baseball game. if they did, I have a hard time coming up with any scanario where the lone VUPD LEO would get in dispute with a VU fan away from VU.

As he and Corbin are apparently tight, I say this week would be the perfect time to end the feud.

GO DORES!
Beat cardinal!!

He's good luck.

And he aggravates the opponent and the opponents' fans, which I like on both accounts.

And that's the exact reason why VUPD didn't give him the benefit of the doubt. They know who Lance is and what kind of a fan he is. He's known as a trash talker, and VUPD weren't buying his sob story. He needs to get over himself. He is not bigger than this program, no matter how much he believes that to be true.

Lance missing may just be a symptom of the problem Vandy fans are facing.  Watch to see if Vandy fans are allowed to be on top of the parking garage this weekend.

I believe that theory was shot down by Ro just night before last, unless Lance was there is disguise. It's great that he's a "superfan", whatever that is, but good gracious, he needs to get over himself. I couldn't care less if he shows up Friday and every other game for eternity, or never shows up again. Either way. It's just childish and ridiculous at this point. I have a strong suspicion that if he were a ut fan and acting like this and getting media coverage, we would be hounding him and them unmercifully about how juvenile he was acting. JMO

Lance is not nearly as important to the success of VU sports as he thinks. He has been given special treatment for years. I think he and his family thought his boycott would create an up roar. Now that they see it didn't they have backed themselves in a corner. Lance never showing up to another game, although sad because he is a great fan, falls firmly in the category of "nobody really cares".

Re: Lance Smith fka Vandy Lance 


I just wish every VU sports fan who has  'NEVER been featured in articles in the national media'  

would just shut the heck up about the only fan who has been (multiple times)...

and whoever thinks he's a "trash talker" is just plain ignorant...

Plus just keep in mind--when you denigrate Vandy Lance, you are denigrating a friend of the most

successful baseball coach in Vanderbilt University history...

Do you call yourselves a "friend" of Tim Corbin? If not, shut up about something you know little about...

Who called him a "trash talker" in this thread VanDSIRROM? People can have their opinions. No one here has denigrated his name. Just said they weren't worried about his boycott. I wish VL the best but am not laying in bed at night worrying either.

comment was made up above that he is "known as a trash talker". I've met Lance and like him. I, for one think we need him. But, this does need to be laid to rest and let bygones be bygones.

I agree Brad. We do have  to recognize that while Vanderbilt has a monster reputation as an academic university, we have a very limited fan base because of our overall size and our students being from all over the world. We NEED each and every VU fan that we can find and do not need to alienate a single one IMO.

Come back Lance! We need you brother!

..... to any of the 3 Qs i asked.

Did not intend this to be a referendum on Lance.

Was just curious if the boycott was still on and whether ppl thought he would break it this week or in Omaha.

1) I love Lance.  My personal opinion is that if he is waiting for an apology from VUPD, it's not going to happen.  So the ball is in Lance's court.  He can choose to try again and come back and be Vandy Lance again, or he can stay home.  As a VU fan, I hope he comes back.  It will not change my opinion of him if he stays away though ... it's his choice.

2) Is he not a "trash talker"?  And, is calling him that even an insult?  Lance did not get his reputation just by dressing up in glittery outfits and politely clapping when VU does something well.  He is loud, vocal, and makes his presence heard.  He does not, to my understanding, use profanity, but I was pretty sure he considered it well within bounds to heckle an opponent - which I would certainly include under the umbrella of trash talking.  I can't imagine Lance NOT engaging in the "you're going down!" sort of trash talk (though he probably does so much more colorfully than me, even without profanity).

Really doubt that Lance will make an appearance. He did show up at the SEMO game for a few minutes, but he made it clear that he was only there because the head umpire for that game, Scott Erby, was retiring and that Scott had requested his attendance. After the pre-game ceremony was over, Lance left.

Re: Lance Smith fka Vandy Lance 


This is some funky logic.   Some sort of 6 degrees of separation thing.  So, alumni and fans who have never been feature in magazines (which is evidently all of us except this one fan) need to shut the heck up because we are not "friends" with coach?

Don, yes, someone said he "talked trash"...a moderator must have deleted that post before you read it...

Cal State just had to remove their fan for similar reasons but their guy would memorize the other teams players families etc and harass them.

Sis,
Please tell your brother to come back and help us beat a very difficult Stanford team.  We all know that some officious VU Policeman made a bad mistake, but it is time to forgive and forget it.  Nobody wins in this standoff.  Heck, we got a potential College World Series team and I would hate for Lance to miss it.
