Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Today marks 92 days from Vanderbilt football’s season opener against ETSU. 92 for the Commodores is defensive lineman Derek Green. A 6’5”, 320-pound junior (really redshirt sophomore) from Richlands, North Carolina, Green saw the field for the first time in 2020 after sitting out 2019 as a transfer from Oklahoma, where he enrolled early before leaving that program prior to the start of spring football. Green appeared in eight games in 2020 and registered five tackles.

And it’s the first Friday in June, which if you’re new around here means that it’s the start of the regional round of the NCAA baseball tournament. Vanderbilt is hosting the Nashville Regional and will open the tournament against the regional 4-seed, Presbyterian, tonight at 6 PM CT on the SEC Network. Vanderbilt should not have too many problems with the Blue Hose, which will set up a matchup with the winner of the first game at the Hawk today between Atlanta and Indiana State, which starts at noon CT.

In other news, the women’s basketball program announced the signings of two spring signees, Sacha Washington from Lawrenceville, Georgia, and Khaniah Gardner from Chicago. Washington is one of four top 100 recruits in Vanderbilt’s signing class, though the other three all signed in November when Stephanie White was still the head coach.

Anyway, here’s your guide to the rest of today’s NCAA regional action. Use this as your open thread for the non-Vanderbilt games today.
