Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

We are now 44 days away from Vanderbilt football’s August 27 season opener at Hawaii. 44 for the Commodores is defensive back Alan “Taco” Wright. The 6’0”, 181-pound redshirt freshman from Fayetteville, Georgia, is probably best known at this point as the younger brother of quarterback Mike Wright; he hasn’t appeared in a game for Vanderbilt yet.

Tonight, at 11 PM CT, begins Vanderbilt’s annual SEC Network Takeover. Only 5 of the 24 hours are dedicated to football, with the spring game airing at 6 AM CT tomorrow and the UConn game from last season for some reason airing at 1 PM CT tomorrow. Yes, we will have an open thread for it tonight.

In other news, Vanderbilt bowlers Mabel Cummins and Amanda Naujokas have advanced to bracket play at the Junior Gold championship.
