Well, Vanderbilt is officially the champion of the Diamond Head Classic after Stanford had to cancel last night’s game due to their own COVID issues. For the record, avoiding a loss to Stanford might actually be a better outcome, since Stanford wasn’t going to be a Quad 1 game and now Vanderbilt can go into SEC play with an 8-4 record.

For what it’s worth.
Naturally, Jeff Goodman had to take a potshot, because of course he did.

And, Drew Weikert was officially placed on scholarship. I’m assuming this is the scholarship that opened up when Peyton Daniels left the team three games into the season.

With a full nine days until the Commodores’ SEC opener, though, I’m still looking for Vanderbilt to pick up an additional game this week to finish out nonconference play. More than likely, that would have to be someone else who lost a game.
In other news, the NHL delayed its restart by another day.
Anyway, I don’t have anything else this morning. Enjoy the NFL today.
