Anchor Drop, January 2, 2022: Women’s basketball postponed, again

At least this time it’s the other team’s COVID issues?

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Well, Vanderbilt women’s basketball was supposed to host Missouri today, but that’s off — the second game in a row that the Commodores have lost to COVID-19 issues. The good news, I guess, is that this time it’s the other program’s issues, which I take to mean that Vanderbilt had enough to play. Which at least increases the likelihood that Thursday’s game against Arkansas is a go.

Meanwhile, Matt Corral got hurt in the Sugar Bowl last night, and The Discourse took a turn.

Well, okay. Glad we’re going to get more of those in the future after that. (But I listened to the ESPN commentary and I don’t find anything too detestable about it. They referred to playing in a bowl game as “doing the right thing,” and if you’ve got a problem with that value proposition, that’s a you problem.)
