Today there are 77 days until kickoff.
77 was the total number of yards gained by Vanderbilt last season against Carolina. The Commodores gained 73 through the air and a total of 4, count them 4, on the ground.
Vandy was hailed last season as a team on the rise who was changing their historical struggles for the better.
In Columbia they were completely impotent offensively and thoroughly dominated.
It goes without saying that last season's defense was very, very good.
