Anchor Drop, January 5, 2020: Women’s basketball at Florida

Also, supposedly the men’s team played a game last night.

NCAA Womens Basketball: Tennessee at Vanderbilt Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

The Vanderbilt women’s basketball team continues SEC play today with a trip to Florida. Game time is 11:00 AM CT, and the game will be televised on ESPNU. The Commodores should have a good opportunity to move to 2-0 in SEC play: Florida is 9-5 on the season and got waxed, 93-47, by Mississippi State in their conference opener on Thursday night.

Also, the men’s team lost 92-81 to SMU in overtime, a very surprising result if you turned it off assuming they had it in the bag when they held a 72-57 lead with just over six minutes left in the game.

Vanderbilt formally announced three football coaching hires yesterday: Todd Fitch as offensive coordinator, Ted Roof as defensive coordinator, and Peter Rossomando as offensive line coach. We’d pretty much known about Fitch for a few days, and Roof’s name came out a few hours before the actual announcement. Rossomando came from out of nowhere, but he was Rutgers’ offensive line coach in 2019 and was a head coach for ten years before that.

What to Watch Today

Other than the women’s basketball game, you mean? (Consider this your open thread for that, by the way.)
