Hayden Stone, one of Vanderbilt's All-American pitchers, will miss the rest of the season when he undergoes Tommy John surgery on Thursday. The sophomore struggled early in 2015 (9.64 ERA) and it appears that elbow problems were the culprit. He's the highest profile Commodore to need Tommy John surgery since T.J. Pecoraro tore his UCL back in 2011. Let's hope that he has a speedy recovery. (via Hayden's personal Twitter account, @Stone_VU32)

Ryan Seymour will be gainfully employed in 2015 - but who he'll be protecting on the offensive line is still a mystery. The second year guard/center re-signed with the Cleveland Browns on Monday. Seymour started three games at center last season when Alex Mack was injured. The deal will become official when the 2015 free agency period officially starts on Tuesday.
So when do we just start calling the SEC Freshman of the Week Award "the LaChance?" Riley won the honor for the fourth time this season after averaging 17 points and 4.5 assists in a pair of Commodore wins this week. He made 57 percent of three pointers as part of this rampage.
Patton Robinette has a pretty good fallback in place if this whole football thing doesn't work out. The official Vanderbilt Football account announced that he was accepted to VU Medical School this week.
Wade Baldwin IV tweets from the team bus about the growing controversy over Kevin Stallings's comments to him. Looks like things are all good between the two men.
