Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

We are now 83 days away from Vanderbilt football’s season opener against ETSU. There’s currently no 83 for Vanderbilt (again, caveat that freshmen don’t have their roster numbers yet.) The last player to wear 83, wide receiver C.J. Bolar (pictured above), left the team after the 2019 season and now plays at Alcorn State.

And, you’ve probably heard the big news: Vanderbilt is headed back to Omaha after Jack Leiter shut down East Carolina in a 4-1 Super Regional-clinching win yesterday. This will be the Commodores’ fifth College World Series appearance, and their second in a row.

Who will be joining the Commodores? So far, it’s just Stanford, which completely dominated Texas Tech in two games this weekend. Meanwhile, NC State and Ole Miss both forced Game 3 against Arkansas and Arizona, respectively. In the Super Regionals that started Saturday, Dallas Baptist, Mississippi State, Fake UT, and Real UT (I’ll let you decide amongst yourselves which is which) won yesterday and will go for the sweep today. Your schedule (all times Central):
