LOL so we basically played a buy game at Houston in 2015

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Ah, so we played a buy game at Houston in 2015. Yep, that’s right: Vanderbilt won’t be hosting Houston for the return game of the two-game series in 2021, instead replacing the Cougars with... UConn, the team that ditched the AAC for the Big East and now will be an independent in football. In terms of winning a game, this is probably an improvement, but do we even have any self-respect left?

And in unrelated news: apparently some University of Kentucky faculty started a petition to change the name of Rupp Arena. That’ll go over well.
