Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

We are now 53 days away from Vanderbilt football’s season opener against Hawaii. There is no 53 on the roster. (Do I have to do the rant about duplicate numbers again? I thought Clark Lea got rid of those.)

The only news today: Jerry Stackhouse is reportedly hiring Brad Calipari to a player development position. Yes, the son of John Calipari. Yes, one of his daughters is a professor at VU.

I don’t really have anything else. Enjoy your Fourth of July, everyone.
