New, 14 comments

Ole Miss scored ten runs in an inning yesterday. Blargh.

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Well, that sucked: Vanderbilt got out to a 2-0 lead early on in Sunday’s series finale against Ole Miss, and then the Commodores just spotted Ole Miss 10 runs for no particular reason in the third inning, on their way to a 13-10 loss. Anyway, Vanderbilt is half a game behind Tennessee going into the final weekend of the regular season.

Men’s golf opens the NCAA Tournament today, and apparently they’re officially calling it the Kingston Springs Regional, because we’re nothing if not accurate about these things. Anyway, this thing’s at the Golf Club of Tennessee, and apparently Vanderbilt is the 3-seed in the regional in spite of being ostensibly the hosts here. The Commodores tee off at 7:30 AM CT, and there’s no stream but the live scoring is here.

Apparently Texas is gonna poach all of our players?
