Van­der­bilt Coach Derek Ma­son had fun Tues­day com­pli­ment­ing re­porters on their clothes or their ques­tions, and he be­gan ex­tend­ing in­vi­ta­tions to some of the me­dia mem­bers to take a look at the Com­modores.

When a re­porter asked him about Vandy’s vic­tory over Ten­nessee last sea­son, Ma­son said, “It took me to a different place,” but he ended up dis­cussing his pro­gram.

“We built some­thing here on West End that we know is spe­cial,” he said. “I’m not try­ing to con­vince any­body to get be­hind it. The move­ment’s al­ready started. We’re here. We’re mov­ing in the right di­rec­tion. If you want to see great foot­ball, if you want to have an op­por­tu­nity to see a great team do­ing great things, come check us out.”

Later, when asked by Jared Still­man of WPRT-FM in Nashville, about the “ceil­ing” for the Com­modores, Ma­son went on to re­mark, “I feel the en­ergy. I un­der­stand who they are. And they un­der­stand where they’re at. To you, Jared, hope­fully you get be­hind the move­ment be­cause we need you. We want you. Come check us out on West End.”
