NCAA BASEBALL: Mississippi State at Vanderbilt George Walker IV-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Okay, we’re done being lazy. The Anchor Drop is back just in time to announce the release of the baseball team’s 2019 SEC schedule. The Commodores will host Florida (March 22-24), Tennessee (March 29-31), Arkansas (April 12-14), Auburn (April 26-28), and Missouri (May 10-12.) Road series are at Texas A&M (March 15-17), Georgia (April 5-7), Alabama (April 19-21), South Carolina (May 3-5), and Kentucky (May 17-19.)

Vanderbilt junior WR Kalija Lipscomb was named to the Biletnikoff Award watch list, given to the nation’s top wide receiver. Through six games this season, Lipscomb has an SEC-leading 45 catches for 496 yards and six touchdowns.

Adam Sparks releases his Vanderbilt football report card for the first half of the season, in which the Commodores get the Gentleman’s C across the board.

Tweet of the Day

Off the West End

With MLB’s League Championship Series set, somebody associated with the Vanderbilt baseball program is guaranteed to win a World Series. In the ALCS, the Houston Astros (who have Tony Kemp) face the Boston Red Sox (hello, David Price.) On the NL side, it’s the Los Angeles Dodgers (Walker Buehler) and the Milwaukee Brewers (former pitching coach Derek Johnson.)

Two different SB Nation editorials: The Minnesota Timberwolves need Jimmy Butler, but they also should trade him. This makes sense.

Oh yeah, and a former AAU coach/Adidas consultant read a list of names under oath of former college basketball players whom he arranged payments to. Nothing to see here.
