Good morning.

We’re 82 days away from Vanderbilt football’s season opener against Georgia. There is no #82 on the roster and there might not be one this season: this portion of the Anchor Drop is in memory of Turner Cockrell, the former Vanderbilt tight end who succumbed to cancer last November.

The Vanderbilt baseball team is headed to Omaha for the fourth time in school history, and the first time since 2015, after beating Duke 13-2 on Sunday.

Also in Omaha: Louisville, Texas Tech, Florida State, Mississippi State, and Michigan. There are two more spots left to be decided: North Carolina plays Auburn at 12:00 PM CT and Arkansas plays Ole Miss at 3:00 PM. Both games will be televised on ESPN2.
