Live-blogging Bobby Johnson

3:25 p.m. ET Bobby Johnson says Vanderbilt wants to "take advantage of some momentum we have with our program." It must be nice for him to be able to say that. It's not easy to do that when you play 12 straight weeks -- something Johnson's "not happy" with.

3:30 p.m. ET Johnson said he voted for Tim Tebow. He seemed to do so reluctantly, almost as if facing an interrogation by Mossad. "I don't know if y'all are going to find the culprit who didn't vote."

3:32 p.m. ET Someone points out that D.J. Moore is gone. Johnson begins to weep quietly. That cheering you hear at the back of the room is Michael Hartline. I might have made all of that up except the Moore question being asked. Great natural player. "He's going to go on and I think do well in the NFL."

3:34 p.m. ET "I think it was satisfying but it was also necessary."

3:35 p.m. ET Going to Baton Rouge is a tough game. "There's no easy way to schedule them."

3:36 p.m. ET I want to ask Johnson about whether his team won games based on luck, but I just can't bring myself to rain on his parade here.

3:37 p.m ET "We weren't seeking respect. We were seeking to do the best we can do with our program."

3:42 p.m. ET I find a way to get the question in -- very tight games, one play one way or the other, is the next level winning more comfortably. "We won games like that. We lost games like that."

3:43 p.m. ET "We expect to compete for championships." No, that bowl game berth hasn't gone to his head at all.
