Anchor Drop, December 31, 2021: You Hate To See It

OO.

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

The referees in the Music City Bowl ruled that this was not a touchdown:

You really do hate to see it. Tennessee fans were mad that that was ruled forward progress, but this was not (warning: hilariously awful tackling by Tennessee’s defense):

The point is, Tennessee claimed to be Nashville’s team, made a big deal about practicing in Vanderbilt Stadium and stomping on the logo, and then got got by the referees. (They also complained about Purdue players faking injuries, because fucking of course they did.) Once again, you really do hate to see it.

I don’t really have any Vanderbilt news, other than that the university is pushing back the start of the spring semester to January 17. Women’s basketball is back on Sunday, men’s basketball on Tuesday, and bowling next Saturday.

Hail Pinman.
