Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

So, this week is apparently “former Vanderbilt athletes randomly find their way into historic and/or funny sports moments” week. First, it was Trent Sherfield and the Butt Punt, this time it’s former Vanderbilt pitcher and now Toronto Blue Jays bullpen coach Matt Buschmann’s turn.

So, I guess we won’t have ESPN breaking into college football games to show his at bats this weekend?

In other news, while Clark Lea has previously ruled out a two-quarterback system because he’s not Karl Dorrell, but he said yesterday that he’s working on finding ways to get Mike Wright on the field. Which makes sense, because it’s sort of stupid to waste one of the best athletes on the team by having him stand on the sidelines.
