5 keys for Vanderbilt vs. MTSU

Posted On Sep 19 2020 by

first_imgVanderbilt makes its first trip to Middle Tennessee State since 1920 on Saturday.The Commodores hold a 12-3 advantage in the series, but MTSU has won the past three meetings (2001, 2002, 2005) since moving to FBS in 1999. Here are five keys to the game for Vanderbilt.Vanderbilt quarterback Johnny McCrary has not tossed an interception in back-to-back games.Vanderbilt quarterback Johnny McCrary has not tossed an interception in back-to-back games.1. Win turnover margin, again: Vanderbilt ended an 18-game streak of not winning the turnover margin by intercepting two passes against Ole Miss last week. A repeat performance, or a tied margin, probably must be accomplished for the Commodores to win this one. That’s a twofold challenge. Quarterback Johnny McCrary must protect the ball, and Vanderbilt’s secondary needs to pick off a pass or two.Vanderbilt downplays first game vs. MTSU in decade2. No special teams gaffes: Vanderbilt’s special teams play has been really good and really bad, but rarely in between. On the road against a team usually strong in special teams, the Commodores can’t afford a gaffe in that phase. It would be a bonus for Darrius Sims to run back a kick or Tommy Openshaw to nail a 50-yard field goal. But it’s more critical that Vanderbilt not give up a long return or commit a turnover in special teams.5 questions for MTSU beat writer3. Rattle young QB: MTSU’s Brent Stockstill may be a steady 21-year-old, but he’s also a freshman with only four career starts. Vanderbilt needs to pressure the QB like it did Chad Kelly at Ole Miss last week. Stockstill has a quick release and an accurate arm. The Commodores can’t allow him to get into a rhythm in MTSU’s up-tempo offense, and getting into Stockstill’s face is the easiest way to prevent that.4. Get downhill: Vanderbilt has shown flashes of turning the corner in the ground game, but it still hasn’t found a full four quarters of strong running. MTSU has size and athleticism in its front-seven, and it will take patience to pound away with running back Ralph Webb. This game looks like it could be close, and the team that wins the line of scrimmage may pull it out late. Vanderbilt’s offensive line must take control to extend and finish drives with hard runs.Vanderbilt hopes Webb, freshman are good running combo5. Be at ease in atmosphere: It will be a frenzied, mostly blue-clad crowd. Vanderbilt, obviously, has seen larger stadiums in the SEC, but MTSU sees this game as a marquee matchup. The Commodores must play controlled and balanced, just as they did for much of the road game at Ole Miss. If there are mistakes to be made, let the hyped-up home team make them. VANDERBILT (1-3) vs. MTSU (2-2) Where: Johnny “Red” Floyd Stadium (Murfreesboro) When: 6 p.m. Saturday TV: CBS SN Radio: 1510-AM, 95.9 FM Last meeting: MTSU 17, Vanderbilt 15 (2005)Reach Adam Sparks at 615-259-8010 and on Twitter @AdamSparks.last_img read more

Halle Berry talks ‘Kidnap’ and explains why every woman should learn self-defense

Posted On Aug 26 2020 by

first_imgTyler Golden/ABC(NEW YORK) — Halle Berry plays a strong mother who will stop at nothing to rescue her kidnapped son in the upcoming thriller, Kidnap.In an interview with Good Morning America Tuesday, the actress said she’s glad to “see a woman save the day” at the end of the film, which is something the actress can certainly relate to in real life.Berry said she thinks it “should be mandatory” for all women to take self-defense classes to protect themselves and their children, should a dangerous situation arise.“I do hand combat training,” the actress and mother of two said. “I’m the kind of person that, if something really goes down, I want to be that kind of mom that can have a fighting chance for my kids and for myself. I think every woman should know self-defense and combat training. I think it should be mandatory, especially if you have children, you should learn how to protect yourselves.”Berry also said the plot to Kidnap is every parent’s worst nightmare: “It’s real for all of us. What would you do if you saw your child snatched before your eyes, close enough to see, but too far to do anything about it? What would you really do?“Hundreds of kids are really kidnapped every day,” Berry added. “It’s real, and it was so real for me being a mom too. Every day, it was visceral. My emotions were here, and I just thought, ‘The horror.’ Every mom would go far and would not stop.”Berry also said Kidnap, while filled with “a lot of tension” and plenty of “action,” is “rewarding” because you get to see how a woman saves the day.The film opens nationwide Friday.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
