Vanderbilt redshirt senior RB Ralph Webb accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

Webb (5'10/190) proclaimed himself as the best running back in the country during the summer, but managed just a modest 831 yards (4.3 YPC) and 10 touchdowns this season. He had turned in back-to-back 1,000-yard campaigns prior to his statistical step back. NFL Draft Scout currently has him projected as a seventh-round selection for the spring draft.
Dec 8 - 11:20 PM

Vanderbilt junior QB Kyle Shurmur completed 20-of-31 passes for 283 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 42-24 win over Tennessee.

Shurmur hit on a pair of touchdown passes in the first half, then two more in the fourth quarter as Vandy pulled away for the easy win. This was his third game on the year with four scoring tosses. For the campaign as a whole, the junior finishes out having passed for 2,823 yards with a 26/10 TD/INT ratio.
Nov 25 - 8:38 PM

Vanderbilt redshirt senior RB Ralph Webb rushed for 163 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 42-24 win over Tennessee.

Webb found the end zone from two yards out in the second quarter and 20 yards out in the fourth quarter to account for his pair of touchdowns on the evening. While the 5-foot-10, 190-pounder was unable to come through with his third consecutive season of at least 1,000 yards rushing -- much of that due to a poor first half to the campaign -- Webb picked up the pace with three games of at least 100 yards on the ground in Vandy's final six contests. As the Commodores fell short of bowl eligibility this year, Webb has now played his final game with the program and is free to begin prepping for the draft. He's a potential Day 2 pick, though Day 3 is probably more likely.
Nov 25 - 8:34 PM

Vanderbilt sophomore TE Jared Pinkney caught six passes for 119 yards in a 45-17 loss to Missouri on Saturday.

Pinkney (6'4/250) has not been a part of the Commodore offense since the first month of the season, and had caught just one pass in each of the last three days. The Commodores clearly saw something in the Tigers defense to exploit, and Pinkney had easily his best game of his season. We'll see if the Commodores keep the sophomore tight end involved next week against Tennessee.
Nov 18 - 11:55 PM

Vanderbilt junior QB Kyle Shurmur threw four interceptions and one touchdown on 30-of-43 passing for 308 yards in a 44-21 loss to Kentucky on Saturday.

Shurmur didn't see the ball hit the ground much in this one, which is good. He also saw the ball end up in the hands of Kentucky defenders four times, which is bad. Shurmur clearly has the talent to be a viable starter in this conference, but his decision-making leaves a lot to be desired. Shurmur and Vanderbilt will look for their first conference win against Missouri next week.
Nov 11 - 7:41 PM

Vanderbilt redshirt senior RB Ralph Webb rushed for 104 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries in the school's 31-17 win over Western Kentucky on Saturday.

Webb's short touchdown was really nice as he beat a few defenders on contact. His longest run of the game was 14 yards but he is really coming into his own over the last three weeks, including 163 yards against Ole Miss.
Nov 4 - 3:59 PM

Vanderbilt junior QB Kyle Shurmur completed 14 of 21 passes for 220 yards and two touchdowns in the school's 31-17 win over Western Kentucky on Saturday.

Shurmur to Trent Shefield was hitting all day, including a nice back shoulder throw that is rarely seen at the college level. Shurmur has a bit of an NFL look to him, and it makes sense with his father being Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur.
Nov 4 - 3:53 PM

Vanderbilt redshirt senior WR C.J. Duncan caught eight passes for 80 yards with two scores in a 34-27 loss to South Carolina.

Duncan hasn't been a big part of the Commodores offense this season, but he certainly was on Saturday. His eight yard score from Kyle Shurmur in the second quarter brought Vanderbilt to within one at 14-13 late in the second, and his second score Shurmur from four yards brought the Commodores to within a score in the fourth at 34-27. Duncan will look to stay involved in the offense next week against Western Kentucky.
Oct 28 - 8:26 PM

Vanderbilt junior QB Kyle Shurmur completed 27-of-49 passes for 333 yards with four scores and one pick in a 34-27 loss to South Carolina on Saturday.

This was not only one of Shurmur's best games of the year, but one of his best games as a member of Vanderbilt, period. He missed on a few throws -- as he's always going to do -- but he was able to make big plays on his arm, and was one of the only reasons that Vanderbilt was able to stay in this game. Unfortunately for Shurmur, the defense didn't come to play today against the Gamecocks. He'll look to stay hot next week against Western Kentucky.
Oct 28 - 8:23 PM

Vanderbilt redshirt senior RB Ralph Webb rushed for 163 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries in Saturday's 57-35 loss to Ole Miss.

Webb (5'10/202) had been struggling mightily this season, having failed to run for more than 55 yards in a game entering action on Saturday. He eclipsed that mark and then some against the Rebs. The redshirt senior is looking to post his third consecutive season with 1,000 yards rushing. That possibility is probably out the window barring a monster second half to campaign, but at the very least, it's nice to see the normally dependable back finally show some of the flash that made him one of the SEC's most underrated offensive performers in past years.
Oct 14 - 8:06 PM

Vanderbilt redshirt senior RB Ralph Webb rushed for 47 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries in Saturday's 45-14 loss to Georgia.

Webb did notch a one-yard touchdown run in the closing seconds of the first half, but otherwise, this was yet another MIA showing for the 5-foot-10, 202-pounder. The redshirt senior has yet to surpass 55 rushing yards in a game this season. He entered the year having posted back-to-back 1,000-yard campaigns. That mark looks a long ways off at this point.
Oct 7 - 3:44 PM

Vanderbilt junior QB Kyle Shurmur completed 18-of-40 passes for 264 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 38-24 loss to Florida.

Shurmur wasn't particularly efficient in the loss, but he did end up with decent numbers simply through volume. He threw two of his three touchdown passes in a competitive first half before Florida put in a little extra something something after halftime to pull away for the win. While Vandy has now lost two games in a row, Shurmur's renaissance season continues on course, as he now holds an 11/1 TD/INT ratio in five games after putting up a miserable 9/10 mark in 13 contests last year.
Sep 30 - 4:09 PM

Vanderbilt redshirt senior RB Ralph Webb rushed for 29 yards on 11 carries in Saturday's 38-24 loss to Florida.

Webb's very bad, no good season continues unabated. The 5-foot-10, 202-pounder entered the campaign having turned in back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons, but has been essentially a non-factor for the Commodores through five games this time around. He has yet to surpass 55 yards rushing in a contest this year. Things won't get any easier with Georgia coming to town next weekend.
Sep 30 - 3:45 PM

Vanderbilt junior QB Kyle Shurmur completed just 4-of-15 passes for 18 yards and an interception in a 59-0 loss to Alabama on Sunday.

Yikes. Shurmur (6'4/226) had no chance against the Alabama defense, constantly pressured into making poor throws. There are likely better days ahead for the junior, but today was a pretty good indication that Shurmur -- and Vanderbilt -- haven't quite reached that upper-level yet. He'll look to rebound next week against Florida next Saturday.
Sep 23 - 7:00 PM

Vanderbilt's defense has allowed just 13 points this season through three games, with a matchup against Alabama looming.

Ten sacks in three games have been a major factor. Alabama beat writer Rainer Sabin expects Alabama's offense to focus on the running game, as usual, since the team's pass protecting will be tested. Jalen Hurts is showing a bit more as a passer, but not to the point of overwhelming defenses, especially against pressure.
