Anchor Drop, January 24, 2023: Kentucky Tonight

Oh good. These guys.

NCAA Basketball: Vanderbilt at Georgia Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt basketball hosts Kentucky tonight, and while the Wildcats have won three straight since vomiting all over themselves against South Carolina at home (it will be hilarious if South Carolina goes 1-17 in the SEC with the “1” being Kentucky at Rupp), there’s still just a constant feeling that the other shoe is about to drop. They won at Tennessee, then trailed a lot of the way against Georgia and Texas A&M at home, with Oscar Tshiebwe bailing them out with a monster game against Georgia. Bryce Smith at the Hustler wrote a lot of words about this game, too.

Anyway while Jerry Stackhouse unblocked a lot of Vanderbilt fans (including Anchor of Gold) after the Georgia game, something that would go a much longer way toward winning the fans back would be beating Kentucky and/or Tennessee, which he hasn’t done so far in his tenure. As such, tonight’s game (8 PM CT, SEC Network) is very important.

Just get ready for a lot of complaints about our gym. Dial that up to ten if Doug Shows is officiating the game.
