The Vanderbilt football program was fined 250,000 dollars for storming the field after their win over Florida on Saturday. The Commodores have now won back-to-back SEC games since the Prehistoric era. The bill for the fine is a heavy lump of cash for what could be considered a gathering rather than a storming.

It’s incredible to think that this is the third time this has happened since the rule of fines was implemented for a field storming in the SEC. The scene on Saturday looks more like a freshmen college mixer from a 90’s teenage comedy compared to other college celebrations.

When you’re most known for being the brains of the conference, it is completely understandable not to know how to storm a field. The university should probably hold a study hall this week and show highlights of Tennessee fans storming Neyland after the Alabama game.
Vandy, we didn’t come here to play school. In the SEC, it just means more. Get your act together and learn how to celebrate accordingly. I’m still salty that the ‘dores beat Kentucky. However, seeing them beat Florida does put a smile on my face. If the university is looking to hire someone to teach a field storming studies class, I’m just a phone call away.
