On this week’s episode of Live from West End, Lead Sports Analyst Brandon Karp joins Sports Editor Andrew Wilf and Deputy Sports Editor Aiden Rutman to discuss the week in football for Vanderbilt. The three discuss the Commodores’ win over Alabama A&M, praising the special teams’s superb play and Will Sheppard’s continued dominance. They outline the need for near perfection from AJ Swann and the secondary ahead of Week Two’s upcoming clash with Wake Forest and its patented ‘Slow Mesh Offense.’ After discussions of soccer’s massive draw against Northwestern and some hot takes, the three discuss clementines, TV Shows and the historical town of Winston-Salem, N.C.
