Good morning.

We’re down to 96 days until kickoff. #96 for Vanderbilt is 6’5”, 260-pound defensive lineman Nate Clifton, who didn’t play in his first year on campus last year.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Sad news from yesterday: Vanderbilt senior defensive analyst Osia Lewis lost his battle with cancer. Lewis had been Vanderbilt’s outside linebackers coach in 2016 and 2017 before stepping aside due to health issues.

The Hustler has ongoing coverage of the protests in Nashville, including the news yesterday that a suspect was arrested for setting City Hall on fire. (Always easy to make the case when the suspect was caught on camera. Idiots.)

Update: When Are Sports Coming Back?

Well, on the baseball front, MLBPA issued a counterproposal calling for a 114-game schedule, as opposed to the owners’ 82-game schedule. Bradford Doolittle on why MLB is different from the NBA and NHL.

Actual Sports on TV

Yeah, there’s a Danish Superliga (soccer) game between FC Midtylland and AC Horsens (I am not making these names up) at 8:55 AM CT on ESPN+. There is also a Bundesliga match between Cologne and RB Leipzig airing on FS2 at 12:30 PM CT.

And starting at 11 AM CT, ESPNU is airing the Division III, Division II, and FCS championship games back-to-back-to-back. Those aren’t live, but they’re probably of interest to you guys.
