Good morning.

Tonight, Jerry Stackhouse coaches his first SEC game, and it’s against none other than Bruce Pearl’s Auburn Tigers. Auburn hasn’t lost a game this season and, well, they aren’t projected to lose tonight at Auburn Arena; Auburn opened as a 16-point favorite. So, we’ll watch tonight at 8:00 PM on the SEC Network, but we’re not getting our hopes up.

VandySports podcasted with George Plaster yesterday, and Adam Sparks interviewed new offensive coordinator Todd Fitch in podcast form.

Four Vanderbilt baseball players — Tyler Brown, Kumar Rocker, Austin Martin, and Mason Hickman — were named preseason All-Americans by Perfect Game. Remember, baseball season is only five weeks away.

Vanderbilt will honor its three SEC championship winning teams — 1965, 1974, and 1993 — at Saturday’s game against Texas A&M.
