NCAA Basketball: Kentucky at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

These are actual headlines in the Tennessean this morning:

Why Vanderbilt’s 14th straight loss to Kentucky is Jerry Stackhouse’s biggest disappointment

Vanderbilt basketball’s Kentucky dud another cue for fans to tune out

Holy shit. That’s the Tennessean, the paper of record for Nashville, and not a fan site. Vanderbilt lost 69-53 to Kentucky last night, with attendance at Memorial Gym being such that you could audibly hear Kentucky fans chanting “airball” at Trey Thomas. Stackhouse benched Jordan Wright in the second half and called out the team’s effort in his postgame press conference. Vanderbilt is 10-10 overall and 3-4 in the SEC, but the vibes feel a lot worse than that. It feels like the vibes around a program that is about to make a coaching change, frankly.

Some other, minor news: football officially announced three transfers, Carson Casteel from Michigan State and Aeneas DiCosmo and Jacob Katona, both from Stanford. Soccer added Jada Konte, a transfer from UConn and the younger sister of Myra Konte.

Vandy also provided an update on football stadium construction and how that will impact both football and baseball this year.
