Optional Musical Accompaniment
The Vanderbilt Commodores’ men’s basketball team opens SEC play tonight at 8 PM CT against the Florida Gators, who will be without preseason SEC Player of the Year Keyontae Johnson (and I’m sure you’ve heard of the reason he’s out and I won’t recount it here.) Tonight’s game will be televised on ESPN2.
The Hustler has its SEC Basketball Power Rankings in which Vanderbilt isn’t last, but Tennessee is first. Boo.
The football team lost a couple more players to the transfer portal, this time James Bostic III and Jamauri Wakefield. Frankly, neither of these losses are unexpected — hell, Wakefield was a fifth-year senior.
