Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

We are 96 days away from Vanderbilt’s season opener against ETSU. 96 for the Commodores is junior (really, redshirt sophomore) Nate Clifton, a 6’5”, 267-pound defensive lineman from Brentwood Academy who saw his first action in 2020 and ended up starting three games, finishing the season with six tackles and notching his first sack against Tennessee.

The baseball team will host a regional in the NCAA Tournament, which starts on June 4 (coincidentally, the next time you get a real Anchor Drop.) We’ll find out who will be joining the Commodores in next weekend’s Nashville Regional today at 11 AM CT on the selection special, which airs on ESPN2.

Men’s golf continues the NCAA Championship today after ending Sunday in a tie for sixth, with their round tentatively set to begin at 12:22 PM CT. The top eight teams after today’s round will advance to the match play tournament to decide the championship. Golf Channel will have coverage starting at 4 PM CT.
