Good morning.

Finals week is over, and Vanderbilt basketball is back in action tonight when Liberty comes to Memorial Gym for a 7:00 PM tip on the SEC Network+. Liberty is actually 11-0 this season — but, at least according to KenPom, all eleven wins have come against teams worse than Vanderbilt and only one of the eleven has come in a true road game, and none of the eleven have come in a gym where the benches are on the baselines.

And for your open thread on your Saturday, here’s your college football schedule (with bonus SEC basketball schedule below in the “Bad Gambling Advice” section):
