Optional Musical Accompaniment
We are now 58 days away from Vanderbilt football’s season opener against Hawaii. 58 for the Commodores is linebacker Carson Casteel. The 6’2”, 222-pound redshirt sophomore from Florence, Alabama, is in his first year at Vanderbilt after transferring from Michigan State. I’m pretty sure he’s here as a walk-on, and also, how does somebody from Florence, Alabama wind up at Michigan State? (Ironically I think Vanderbilt may be the closest FBS school to Florence.)
The matchups for the inaugural ACC/SEC Challenge were announced yesterday — remember, ESPN had to scrap the ACC/Big Ten Challenge because the Big Ten signed a new television contract with basically everybody but ESPN — and Vanderbilt is playing... Boston College? A Big East school? Make it make sense. That game will be played at 8:15 PM CT on November 29. The women will play at NC State on the same night at 6:15 PM CT.
Also, the women’s basketball team found out their SEC opponents.
Football got another commit, this time from Earle (Arkansas) WR Joseph McVay:
That puts Vanderbilt’s recruiting class up to 32nd nationally with 17 commits.
