Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

We are now 30 days away from Vanderbilt football’s season opener against Hawaii. 30 for the Commodores is defensive back Trudell Berry. The 6’1”, 184-pound redshirt freshman from Baytown, Texas, appeared in four games last season and took a redshirt but figures to be in the mix to start at cornerback this season.

Football opened fall camp yesterday, your official sign that the season is upon us. The more interesting article is from Aria Gerson, who noted the impressive play of true freshman cornerback Martel Hight and the versatility of the defensive line. It does seem like Clark Lea knows what he’s doing in recruiting. (There are also practice reports from VandySports, which I’m not going to link because they’re subscriber content on their message board.)

Post-practice media availability:

And in other news, the Pac-12 might be on its deathbed.

So I can’t really complain about this realignment move: if you’re leaving to join the conference you were in from the 1950s to the 1990s, that doesn’t count. This would be like if Georgia Tech or Tulane rejoined the SEC. (Side note: they should do this.)

I would, frankly, prefer that we rewind about 60 years earlier.
