Optional Musical Accompaniment
Vanderbilt basketball continues to try to make something of its season, visiting VCU tonight in a game that will be televised on the CBS Sports Network. (Remember when we played at Hawaii and Northern Illinois in football this season and half of you said “where the hell do I find that channel?” Yeah, it’s coming up again.) Tipoff will be at 6:00 PM CT. The Hustler also has a preview and reminds us unfortunately of the 48-37 disaster we played against VCU last season. (Thanks, kids — Tom Stephenson (J.D., ‘09))
In football news, starting safety Jaylen Mahoney is returning for a fifth year per Robbie Weinstein at 247 Sports.
Three soccer players were named All-Region.
And finally, the U.S. advanced to the knockout stage of the World Cup, but possibly at the cost of Christian Pulisic ever being able to bear children.
