Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Well, that sucked: Kumar Rocker gave up a couple of homers and that was enough for Ole Miss to prevail, 3-1, with the Vanderbilt bats being silent on Friday night. Anyway, they’re back at it at 4 PM CT today, with the game being aired on the SEC Network+. Also, the Hawk was named one of 20 potential host sites for the NCAA Regionals and Super Regionals. Nobody is actually sure why the NCAA is doing it this way.

Lacrosse saw its season end on Friday with a 20-12 loss to Jacksonville in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, the program’s first appearance since 2010.

Men’s golf coach Scott Limbaugh is your SEC Coach of the Year, and three players were named to the All-SEC team.
