It’s been exactly two weeks since sports were shut down for the foreseeable future, and it’s actually eerie how little we’re hearing about when things will start back up. (Insert obligatory statement about how sports don’t matter and there are bigger concerns; for fuck’s sake, we’re a sports blog, and I’m definitely not a doctor.)

Oh. Well, then. Looks like we’ll be less a sports blog and more a shitposting-and-schadenfreude blog for the foreseeable future. Luckily, we have an actual topic of discussion today.
Dabo Swinney: "Robbie Caldwell had us all dying laughing this morning because he said the only reason his face wasn't popping up (on Zoom when he talked was because) he said he was naked. He always wanted to come to a staff meeting naked. We all got a big kick out of that. "— Grace Raynor (@gmraynor) March 25, 2020
There is no doubt in my mind this actually happened. After all, we all remember his SEC Media Day appearance.

Ah, fine, the only video evidence I can find of the Robbie Caldwell “era” at Vanderbilt.
