Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

We are now 11 days away from Vanderbilt football’s September 4 season opener against East Tennessee State. 11 for the Commodores is defensive back Justin Harris. The 6’1”, 195-pound redshirt sophomore from Attalla, Alabama, played in all nine games last season with two starts, notching nine tackles and a pass breakup.

Vanderbilt is into the final week of fall camp, and according to the writeup, the quarterback battle still isn’t settled with both Ken Seals and Mike Wright still getting reps. I’ve made my thoughts on this clear: I think Seals is the starter and this competition is mostly for show, but it’s still really good to know that Vanderbilt has a capable backup if Seals gets injured this season.

New concessions are coming to Vanderbilt Stadium this season.
