Anchor Drop, February 12, 2019: Spring game start time set

11 AM on the SEC Network? Where have we heard that one before?

NCAA Football: Texas Bowl-Baylor vs Vandebilt Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Vanderbilt’s spring game (officially the Black and Gold Spring Game) will be televised this year. Unlike in years past, there was little fight over this: since it’s an actual spring game and not a “spring showcase,” the SEC Network was more than willing to pick it up.

Yesterday, we found out the start time: 11 AM. Of course it’s at 11 AM, because why wouldn’t a Vanderbilt spring game be at 11 AM? The bad news: if you were planning to make it a doubleheader with baseball, you’ll be on the West End all day; the Commodore baseball team takes on Tennessee the same night at 8 PM at Hawkins Field. That game will also be on the SEC Network, so if you plan on leaving your television set on the SEC Network all day, well...
