Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Four-star linebacker Daniel Martin announced his commitment to Vanderbilt over Florida State and Oregon during yesterday’s All-American Bowl, and it seems he already signed during the early signing period as Vanderbilt immediately announced it (and Barton Simmons even implied he’s an early enrollee!)

And, I guess that ties up this loose end from signing day:

Women’s basketball looks to build off Thursday night’s win over Arkansas as they travel to Mississippi State today. Game time is 2:00 PM CT, and this one will be streamed on SEC Network+.

Women’s bowling went 3-2 yesterday at the Stormin’ Blue and White Classic and finds itself in third place behind old villains Stephen F. Austin and McKendree. They’ll pick back up again at noon CT.

The less said about the final possession in yesterday’s 72-70 loss to South Carolina, the better. Instead, let’s talk about Justin Hershey’s article in the Hustler about Vanderbilt’s inane athletics attendance policy. Which, yeah, he’s right. If not for a bunch of afternoons spent at Dudley Field and evenings spent at Memorial Gym while I was a student at VU, there’s approximately a zero percent chance that I would be writing a Vanderbilt sports blog today.

Actually, now that I think about it, that’s probably not the best argument for letting the students attend games. Scratch that.
