Vanderbilt may have lost out, however narrowly, on a national title in women’s bowling. But that is just the beginning of our quest for national titles in sports that Vol fans say don’t matter, mostly because the Vols suck at most of them. (They also suck at football right now, but that’s neither here nor there.) That starts today with the SEC Championship in women’s golf, which will take place at the Legacy Course at the Greystone Golf and Country Club in Birmingham. Vanderbilt has claimed the championship twice before, in 2004 and 2014, but enters the championship as the highest-ranked SEC team in the WGCA rankings at #6 nationally. The format of the five-day event is three days of stroke play from today through Friday, followed by an eight-team match play event on Saturday and Sunday. Only the semis and finals will be televised, but you can follow along the live scoring here. Vanderbilt tees off (along with Arkansas and South Carolina) at 9:40 AM CT.
Baseball just casually smacked down a 27-win Indiana State team by a 7-1 score. Nothing to see here. Well, actually, there is something to see here as Mason Hickman got the midweek start again, an indication that he’s unlikely to move into the weekend rotation.
It’s still not official because reasons, but it sounds like David Grace is Jerry Stackhouse’s first assistant coaching hire.
We have a Chancellor search committee!
