It was a busy weekend for the Vanderbilt Commodores. With football season just over two weeks away, Derek Mason's team rolled through a 96-play scrimmage on Saturday and then spent their Sunday interacting with Nashvillians during the annual Dore Jam. The headliner from the fan fest was the unveiling of the team's "Deep Water" uniforms,
which feature a badass anchor helmet and "anchor down" on places other than the players' nameplates (we're learning!). VandyTigerPhD covered the unveiling in-depth here, so if you have any complaints or compliments about the new kit, be sure to head over to the comments and talk it out.
That wasn't the only Vandy news we got this weekend. Here are some links to catch you up with anything you missed.
