Vanderbilt Hotline: Now, we wait...

It was a big weekend for Vanderbilt sports, and we at VSL want to keep you as up to date as possible. The baseball team took 2 out of 3 over South Carolina in Columbia this weekend, despite losing 8-2 yesterday. The Nashville City Paper also has a recap of yesterday's loss and the weekend series.

The Black and Gold scrimmage was Saturday, and our man Stanimal was there. He will have a full run-down posted later today. Bret Haitt's got some of his notes in today's Nashville City Paper. Mo Patton has talked QBs and secondary in Sunday's Tennessean

The women's tennis team lost 4-3 to the #5 Georgia Bulldogs for their first SEC loss. The women netters are now 14-3 overall, and 7-1 in SEC play. Yesterday's loss snapped a 12 match winning streak for the ladies. Despite some close matches, the men went down 7-0 to #1 Georgia in Nashville. The lady laxers also lost a heart breaker 10-9 to Stanford at home on Saturday.

The big story in Commodore Nation continues to be Kevin Stallings and the "will he or won't he" chatter about his plans for next season. The message board is talking about a report that Michigan has offered their job to West Virginia coach John Beilein. We will continue to follow the story as there are a lot of openings in college basketball, and a number of possible dominoes that could affect Vanderbilt. With openings at Iowa, Arkansas, Michigan, and Kentucky; talk of discontent in Kansas and the courtship of Billy Donovan, the coaching hot stove is sure to heat up. I would be surprised if any announcements were made today with the final four, but starting tomorrow, it will be a free for all.

Speaking of tonight's championship game, the Vanderbilt Sports Line Bracket Challenge will conclude tonight. Team O'Connell has (I think) an insurmountable lead. I am personally pissed that both Seamus' mom and my mom are beating me and Seamus so badly. All that's left to decide is last place, who will be writing a poem about our lovely winner and great push to greatness.

We couldn't get to the podcast this weekend, but we will sometime...soonish.

Finally, well wishes from the entire VSL readership to the little guy in Texas. We're thinking about you bud.

Bobby, OUT!
