Anchor Drop, June 2, 2020: 95 Days to Kickoff

It’s punter day, everyone!

Good morning.

We’re now 95 days away from Vanderbilt football’s season opener against Mercer. 95 is the number of punter Harrison Smith, and here is where I remind everyone of the stupid hill I choose to die on: 95 is a defensive lineman number, not a kicker number. Anyway, Smith, a walk-on from Brentwood High, was Vanderbilt’s primary punter as a sophomore and averaged 43.0 yards per punt last season. That’s pretty good. What’s not good is that he was one of Vanderbilt’s most important players, keeping alive a long and distinguished tradition of Vanderbilt punters being very important.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt athletics issued a statement on the ongoing protests yesterday. And, uh, that’s all I am going to say about that. For anything else, go to Twitter.
