  1. Hello PiRate Ratings. Is Vanderbuilder still particpating in these ratings and simulations? I miss reading your columns at Vanderbilt athletics; the forum went downhill big time after you left.

    I wanted to thank you guys for giving me a nice winning season this year in football. I hope you will have your great NCAA Tournament coverage for basketball as well.

    Thanks, Wes
