Anchor Drop, June 18, 2021: 78 Days to Kickoff

New, 5 comments

Slow news day? Slow news day.

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

We are now 78 days away from Vanderbilt football’s season opener against ETSU. 78 for the Commodores is offensive lineman Bryce Bailey. The 6’5”, 306-pound fifth-year senior from Newburgh, Indiana, was an opt-out in the 2020 season, but he played in 22 games in 2018 and 2019, starting three games in the latter season. He’s also seen some action as a tight end, mostly in goal-line packages.

Kind of a slow news day, but I wanted to point everybody to this MLB mock draft at NBC Sports, where Kumar Rocker is somehow available at the number four pick, behind fellow Vanderbilt pitcher Jack Leiter at number three and commit Jordan Lawlar (who is absolutely not coming here) at two.

Anyway, the remainder of the Better Know A CWS Team series is coming today. Have fun.
