New, 20 comments

Twelve weeks. Maybe.

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

Good morning.

We’re now 84 days away from Vanderbilt football’s scheduled season opener against Mercer, but not if this keeps up:

Oh, okay. By the way, #84 for Vanderbilt is redshirt freshman tight end Justin Ball, who came to Vanderbilt from Gonzaga Prep in Washington, D.C. (the same school as incoming basketball recruit Myles Stute) and did not play in 2019. Anyway, back to the news, but first...

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Yeah, this isn’t good. But is this just a college football thing? Haha no it isn’t.

Ah, okay, so we are going to have to keep ourselves entertained with golf and Costa Rican soccer.

In other news, longtime Vanderbilt football SID Larry Leathers is retiring. Seriously: 2020 sucks.
