Anchor Drop, November 18: Bowling! Soccer! Basketball!


Good morning.

Optional musical accompaniment

So, with the news that Twitter is about to either go offline or become an unrecognizable shithole, well, welcome to the Anchor of Gold comments section, where pants are forbidden and the three-drink minimum is strictly enforced.

Which, today’s Anchor Drop is probably just going to turn into an open thread for the Hawk Classic, where Vanderbilt bowling competes starting at 8:55 AM CT. This event’s field does not, however, include hated rival McKendree, so there will be no revenge for the loss last weekend. As always, bowling shall be streamed on the YouTube channel.

Also today: soccer continues its NCAA Tournament run, facing Northwestern at 6:00 PM CT and looking to win two games for the first time in school history. That game can be streamed on ESPN+.

Also at 6, the men’s basketball team hosts Morehead State, also streaming on ESPN+ and the SEC Network+. The women improved to 5-0 with a 70-61 win over Austin Peay on Thursday night.

RIP to Paul Hoolahan, Vanderbilt’s athletic director from 1990 to 1996.
