Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

We are now 6 days away from Vanderbilt football’s season opener against East Tennessee State. 6 for the Commodores is running back Re’Mahn “The Hypothesis” Davis. The refugee from the Wet Hets rushed for 1,259 yards on 271 carries over his two seasons with Temple. I think he’s really a redshirt sophomore since he only played in four games in 2020. Anyway, pictured above is Anchor of Gold’s most famous Twitter follower.

Here, just go watch the 2005 Tennessee game again.

Vanderbilt soccer hosts Duke today at 2 PM CT, with the game to be streamed on the SEC Network+. Duke is ranked #5 in the country so this should be a tough one; Vanderbilt is 1-1-1 after Thursday night’s overtime loss to Western Kentucky.

The football program picked up another commitment on Saturday from Jayden McGowan, a 5’9”, 170-pound athlete from Laurens, South Carolina. As Robbie Weinstein writes, he could be either a running back or a slot receiver at Vanderbilt.

McGowan is the 18th commitment in the Class of 2022, which is currently ranked 37th nationally in the 247 Sports composite.

Welcome back, college football.
