Anchor Drop, July 16: 42 Days to Kickoff

Good Morning.

Optional musical accompaniment

We are now 42 days away — six weeks — from Vanderbilt football’s August 27 season opener at Hawaii. 42 for the Commodores is defensive back Camden Coleman. The redshirt senior from Champaign, Illinois, hadn’t played organized football prior to walking on the Vanderbilt football team; since then, he’s appeared in 23 games, including five last season, mostly on special teams.

And tomorrow begins the 2022 MLB Draft, hence the deluge of articles about the draft, including this one from Aria Gerson about names to watch for Vanderbilt. Of course, Andrew (which Andrew? no, that Andrew) has been on this beat, too.

Enjoy another Saturday in July.
