Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

We are now 31 days away from Vanderbilt football’s season opener against Hawaii. Two players wear 31 for the Commodores. Defensive lineman Michael Spencer, a 6’4”, 323-pound redshirt junior from Union, Kentucky, played in four games last season; he entered the program as a walk-on though I’m pretty sure he’s on scholarship now. 5’10”, 180-pound redshirt freshman Landon Wells from Brentwood is a walk-on wide receiver.

Vanderbilt football announced its game promotions for the 2023 season and the most notable one is the announcement that the Auburn game on November 4 is homecoming — and it’s also senior day. Something that I hadn’t noticed before: Vanderbilt has a grand total of two home games in October and November (thanks in part to having two bye weeks.)

Men’s golf will play at St. Andrews in October, which sounds like fun.
