NCAA Football: Middle Tennessee at Vanderbilt Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Vanderbilt soccer returns to action tonight at 7:00 PM CT as the Commodores take on Western Kentucky. Vanderbilt is 5-1 on the season and is looking to extend its five-game winning streak since a season-opening loss to Florida State. Tonight’s game will be streamed on SEC Network+, which you are going to do because what else are you going to do... watch the NFL? What kind of Vanderbilt fan are you?

Women’s golf will open the season ranked, #16 in the GolfWeek Top 25 and #25 by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association.

Zac Ellis writes about the RB-by-committee approach, and I like to think Adam Sparks sat down and watched film of Vanderbilt’s six sacks on Saturday with Jason Tarver.

Your announcing team for Saturday’s game: Dave Neal and D.J. Shockley. One of the Jefferson Pilot Daves and a former Georgia quarterback calling his second game ever? Sign me up!

Tweet of the Day

Off the West End

The NFL opens its season tonight with the matchup between the Falcons and the Eagles on NBC, and Nike will reportedly air a commercial featuring the most famous football player to come out of our Week 2 opponent during the game. Troll level: maximum.

(That also means, for some reason, there’s no Thursday night college football game. ESPN is airing tennis instead which... sure, why not.)

Michigan’s president just came out and confirmed that Jim Harbaugh is not on the hot seat. I have to admit, the narratives surrounding Harbaugh have gotten weird (“never won his division!”) and I can’t quite figure out why.

Somebody at the main SB Nation site seriously wrote that Kansas should consider dropping FBS football.
