Optional Musical Accompaniment
It is, apparently, schedule release week, and up yesterday was defending national champion Vanderbilt bowling. The Commodores open the season October 20-22 at the Wisconsin-Whitewater Warhawk Classic. They’ll play in two additional tournaments in the fall — at Conference USA rival Stephen F. Austin November 10-12 and at Maryland-Eastern Shore November 17-19. After winter break, things pick back up the weekend of January 8 with the Stormin’ Blue and White Vegas Classic, followed by the Northeast Classic and Prairie View Invitational. Then, it’s the February 16-18 Mid-Winter Classic in Jonesboro, Arkansas, hosted by national runner-up Arkansas State, the North Carolina A&T Stallings Invitational and the Music City Classic before the Conference USA Championship March 22-24.
Vanderbilt soccer hosts Kansas State tonight at 7:00 PM CT on the SEC Network+. The Commodores are coming off a win over Belmont Sunday and they’re 2-0-2 on the season.
The Tennessean has an article today on walk-on wide receiver Richie Hoskins, who saw the field and caught a pass Saturday night after starting his career as a lacrosse player and defensive back at Division III Middlebury College in Vermont. Also at the Tennessean: Gentry Estes on the great team that can still exist after the Hawaii game. At the Hustler, a season preview for the women’s golf team, which opens its season this weekend.
Soccer game thread is coming tonight, as is an open thread for college football. Tom’s Bad Gambling Advice is also coming later today.
