Good morning.

Collegiate Baseball ranked Vanderbilt #2 in the country in its 2020 preseason poll, behind only Louisville. Is it me, or does it seem like these publications are always higher on somebody else than they are on Vanderbilt? Anyway, somebody on Twitter put all of our response very well:

Former Vanderbilt golfer Theo Humphrey has qualified for the Korn Ferry Tour (the PGA’s developmental tour formerly known as the Tour or the Nationwide Tour) for the 2020 season.

Here’s a lacrosse preview.

Max Herz has a new edition of the Anchor Down podcast, this time with Saben Lee.

While the “gig economy” is stupid, let’s also point out that some of us, like myself, aren’t doing this for a living and have real jobs and certainly never intended to be sportswriters (and no, I’m still not a journalist.)
