Optional Musical Accompaniment
Well, this certainly isn’t the news you want to hear a week before signing day: Vanderbilt running backs coach Norval McKenzie is headed to join the staff at Georgia Tech, where he’ll take the same job. It’s kind of a bad look that an alum is leaving for a lateral move.
Phil Steele named five Vanderbilt players (Wesley Schelling, Anfernee Orji, Will Sheppard, Jayden McGowan, and Ray Davis) to his All-SEC team.
A couple of podcasts out that I admittedly haven’t listened to yet: Chris Lee talked the upcoming signing class with Justin Angel, and the Dore Report talked to the people behind the Anchor Collective.
Bowl season starts today, and we’ll have an open thread up later. Don’t forget to join the bowl pick ‘em contest if you haven’t already.
