Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt bowling opens 2022 at the Stormin’ Blue and White Vegas Classic, hosted by Mount St. Mary’s, which is in Emmitsburg, Maryland. (Yeah, I’m confused by this, too.) Anyway, you can stream it on FloBowling (which requires a subscription) starting at 11:55 AM CT. At least one commenter will subscribe to FloBowling and why will it be parlagi?

Football made a couple of hires that had been rumored for a while official — Larry Black, who spent the last three seasons at Toledo, is the new defensive line coach, and former Virginia defensive coordinator Nick Howell is the new defensive backs coach. Also, special teams coordinator and tight ends coach Justin Lustig added “Associate Head Coach” to his list of titles.

Meanwhile, file this under “rumors” still:

My guess is that Joey Lynch will simply be given the title of offensive coordinator, which he was already doing in 2021 (except, if rumor is true, he was only handling the playcalling and not the offensive gameplan, which made for a ... weird ... offensive setup.)

And, of course, basketball hosts South Carolina today at 11 AM CT, with coverage on ESPNU. There will be no students in attendance.
