Anchor Drop, May 31, 2020: 97 Days to Kickoff

New, 8 comments

Hey, the first day we have a player to review!

NCAA Football: Mississippi at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

We’re now 97 days away from Vanderbilt football’s (scheduled) season opener against Mercer, and we finally have a player on the roster with that number. That’s 6’5”, 250-pound redshirt sophomore defensive lineman Lorenza Surgers, from Cary, North Carolina, who saw his first career action against Ole Miss last year and also played in the UNLV game.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

The only notable news relating to Vanderbilt sports yesterday was, well, Vanderbilt football coach Derek Mason leaving his thoughts on the nationwide protests on Twitter.

(This also gave Dan Wolken a chance to dunk on some other coaches.)

The Hustler reported on the protests in downtown Nashville last night, which included the courthouse getting set on fire, which... ugh.

Anyway, have a good Sunday. Anchor Down.
