Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Today is Groundhog Day, that silly annual tradition where a groundhog pokes his head out of the ground and we get six more weeks of winter if he sees his shadow. Hooray!

And speaking of Groundhog Day, Vanderbilt plays at Rupp Arena tonight and I am certain that this will go differently from every other time Vanderbilt has ever visited Rupp Arena. (The last time Vandy won at Rupp Arena: 2007.)

It’s National Signing Day, and Vanderbilt has already signed an offensive lineman they flipped from UCF:
