Anchor Drop, December 28, 2021: Seals Returning

Also, women’s basketball hosts Alabama State tonight.

NCAA Football: Vanderbilt at Florida Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Robbie Weinstein reports that Ken Seals, who was a part-time starter for Vanderbilt in 2021, will return for the 2022 season.

I remain curious what the quarterback situation will look like in the fall, but this at least gives Vanderbilt two quarterbacks on the 2022 roster who have starting experience. It also means that Vanderbilt should be able to redshirt both AJ Swann and Drew Dickey.

Women’s basketball closes out its nonconference schedule tonight with a 7 PM CT tipoff against Alabama State on the SEC Network+. The Commodores will then open the SEC schedule on Thursday at Texas A&M.

Meanwhile, here’s some potentially important news for sports: the CDC has cut the recommended quarantine time for COVID-19 from ten days to five days from the last symptoms.

And here’s one bowl game getting cancelled that I will not be sad to miss: the Barstool Arizona Bowl, which lost Boise State to COVID positives and Central Michigan then decided to take Miami’s spot in the Sun Bowl. You hate to see it.
