Anchor Drop, June 2, 2023: 85 Days to Kickoff

Hey! It’s regional day!

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

We are now 85 days away from Vanderbilt football’s season opener against Hawaii. Last year’s 85 was Joel DeCoursey, who moved on after four seasons and getting his Vanderbilt degree. No 85 is listed on the current roster, something that will probably change when the freshmen are assigned jersey numbers.

And, the freshmen are now on campus.

And who else is back on campus? Tyrin Lawrence.

All right, so on to the real action: Vanderbilt baseball opens the Nashville Regional tonight at Hawkins Field, playing a 7 PM CT game against Eastern Illinois. That’s the second game of the day; the first, between Oregon and Xavier, will start at noon CT on ESPN+. Vanderbilt’s game will be televised on the SEC Network.

Anyway, today’s going to be fun, as the regional weekend always is. We’ll have an open thread for the non-Vanderbilt games coming later, followed by the game thread tonight.
