Optional Musical Accompaniment
Well, that sucked. Vanderbilt lost 78-66 to Kentucky last night and it wasn’t that close; Kentucky led 78-50 with about six minutes left and I turned the game off at that point, but also, Kentucky pulled its starters. That drops Vanderbilt to 9-6, 1-2 in the SEC. The Hustler has more.
And, since we’re going full Bad News this morning, starting left tackle Tyler Steen entered the transfer portal. Steen’s departure hurts Vanderbilt for 2022, but again, as I’ve said before I’m not terribly concerned about guys who aren’t going to be on the team beyond 2022 deciding they don’t want any more of this.
Also at the Hustler, Bryce Smith writes that Clark Lea’s offseason is more important than anything he’s done so far.
