(Missouri Football App) -- It seems everyone gets a bye week before playing the Tigers this year, and Vanderbilt is no exception.  That means the Commodores have had some time to think about facing Mizzou this weekend, and Vandy players have plenty of opinions of what to expect Saturday.

Junior defensive end Walker May on Mizzou's James Franklin:
"He's a very versatile quarterback. He has a good arm and can move when he needs to move. It's going be a challenge for us up front, and defensively we're very excited about it. I love teams that'll drop back and pass a lot, so we get to throw our ears back and go at them from a defensive line perspective. For him, he's a very athletic man, got a great arm, and quick feet so we're going to have our hands full."

Senior tailback Zac Stacy on Tigers' defense:
"From an offensive standpoint, their biggest strength is probably the defensive line. They are a very good, active group of guys. They make a lot of plays on defense, so it will be a matter of execution."

Junior offensive tackle Wesley Johnson on Sheldon Richardson:
"He's obviously had a good season and been real active. I know he has a lot of tackles. Watching their game on Saturday we got a chance to look at their tendencies and we could all see that they are a hard working group of guys. We have to work harder and be more active than they are."

"Their defensive line actually reminds me a lot of our defensive line. They are all athletic and have really high motors. They go full speed all the time and you see them making a lot of second effort plays. Based on what I've seen on tape I would put them up there with any other SEC defensive line."

Junior defensive end Walker May on playing at the Zou:
"It's new, it's different. Of course it feels like a conference game because everybody tells us it's the SEC and everything like that. I've heard about the experience and attitude and everything up in Missouri. Their home games are fun so that'll feel just like another home game for us, or away game for us. We'll feel right at home there, so we're going to have fun."

Seriously?!  May is expecting it to be like a home game for Vande'?  We'll see about that.
