What I hate about Vanderbilt #2
Yesterday I mentioned that Vanderbilt University's mascot is it's founder, Cornelius Vanderbilt. What I didn't mention is the second thing I hate about Vanderbilt: The founder of the school never even visited it. That's right, Cornelius Vanderbilt donated $1mil to found the school, but never bothered to visit it. He never even set foot in the state of Tennessee his whole life. It sounds, to me, like Vanderbilt University has some daddy issues. They try to get attention and love from their daddy by naming the college and the mascot after him, but they were still ignored. That's so sad. And that is why Vanderbilt will lose to Siena on Friday.
