Where'd this Vandy game come from!?  This is the first I heard about that one.

Well, here's to hoping that some of these opponents are worth a damn the coming years...

No kidding, I thought the same thing. Also, I thought the Cal series was a home and home, ala Miami, USC, Texas, etc? Wierd... I was looking forward to the Oklahoma games
