NCAA Football: Vanderbilt at Western Kentucky Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

We’re now 46 days away from Vanderbilt’s season opener against Middle Tennessee. #46 on this year’s roster is redshirt freshman WR Keithian Starling. Starling didn’t see any action in his first year on campus as a walk-on from Nashville Christian, but played wide receiver and cornerback in high school. There, now you know about Keithian Starling.

The Oxford Eagle previews Vanderbilt in the 11th part of its 12-part series previewing Ole Miss’ opponents, which is weird because later today we’ll be posting a preview of Ole Miss in the 11th part of a 12-part series previewing Vanderbilt’s opponents.

And The Valley Shook likes our defensive line enough to rank it 10th in the SEC. Progress!

Off the West End
