MLS: Nashville SC at Inter Miami CF Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

(Look, if I had Tom Petty up there all during Florida week, well, it’s South Carolina week.)

Vanderbilt soccer’s three-match winning streak came to an end on Sunday with a 1-0 loss to Arkansas in overtime. Vanderbilt is now 6-6-2 on the season and 3-2-1 in the SEC.

Women’s tennis closed out the June Stewart Invitational on Sunday by taking nine of ten matches. Men’s tennis ended the Bulldog Invitational by winning three matches.

In his weekly Commodore Brunch column, Hustler sports editor Justin Hershey complains about the replay booth like one of us.

Admittedly, as seen below, the ball does hit the ground as Pierce is taken down. However, the official rulebook says that if the ball touches the ground after the player secures control and continues to maintain control and the three criteria above are met, then it is officially a catch. Sounds like a catch to me—you be the judge.
