But first, Vanderbilt sports.

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Well, today’s Super Bowl Sunday, that annual day where television networks seemingly collude to make sure you watch the Super Bowl. Seriously, though, no one really counterprograms the Super Bowl and it’s honestly sort of weird. There are a grand total of two NBA games, four NHL games, and a handful of college basketball games, and none of them start after 3 PM so that a large number of people can watch the Super Bowl for the halftime show and/or the commercials. This is where we are as a society, and also my wife is probably going to be watching Top Chef reruns.

But prior to that, there’s Vanderbilt sports action. Women’s bowling dominated day two of the Lady Techsters Invitational and will look to wrap up another tournament title today, with streaming on Women’s tennis dropped a match to Washington yesterday and will close out the ITA National Team Indoor Championships against Stanford at 5:30 PM CT today. The men’s tennis team hosts Rice today at noon CT (live stream here.) And, women’s basketball goes on the road to face Tennessee at 1 PM CT on the SEC Network+; Cole will have your live thread up later. I assume Andrew will post an open thread for the Super Bowl, and please go post your questions in the baseball preseason mailbag.

Meanwhile, the men’s basketball team went on the road and beat Florida 88-80 yesterday behind a career day from Liam Robbins (32 points, 10 rebounds.) That was the Commodores’ third win in a row after we left them for dead following a 101-44 loss to Alabama, and they’re now 13-12 overall and 6-6 in the SEC. And finally — uh, are we going to have to recognize Missourah (spits)?

Actually, in totally unrelated to Vanderbilt college basketball news — well, geez, what the hell is going on in Las Cruces? This is the wildest thing I’ve ever seen.
