There are two obvious ways for Vanderbilt fans to look at the fact that a starting quarterback has not yet been named for the season opener, which is now just over two weeks away.

Either no one has done enough to distinguish himself at this point, which would be bad. Or the coaches plan to take as much time as possible so that they’re certain of their choice, which would be good given what happened last year with the position.

For the first time in three years, Kentucky is on Vanderbilt’s men’s basketball schedule twice.

The Southeastern Conference adopted an 18-game schedule and did away with divisional alignment two years ago. That did away with most of the traditional home-and-home series that had been common, such as the one between Vanderbilt and Kentucky.

With several injuries to key members of the Tennessee Titans secondary, free agent Perrish Cox has quickly stepped into a leadership role on defense.

Both Jason McCourty and Blidi-Wreh Wilson have missed significant time in training camp and sat out the first preseason game against Atlanta. With that being the case, Cox has had to step up his game and his presence.

Bud Light did not specify whether its new NFL-themed cans were designed to help fans celebrate triumphs this fall or to drown their sorrows.

Presumably it’s both. After all, the beer company designed one specifically for each of 28 NFL teams, including the Tennessee Titans, with which it partners.

Matt Buschmann has had enough of the bush leagues.

The 31-year-old pitcher out of Vanderbilt has been a professional for 10 seasons but never has been promoted to the Major Leagues. As a result, according to a Grantland.com profile of him and his plight, he has the dubious distinction of being minor league baseball’s career strikeouts leader among active players with no Major League experience (1,098).

Rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota unquestionably is the number-one attraction at the Tennessee Titans training camp. With that in mind, the Nashville Post will offer a daily ‘Mariota Moment,’ a brief look at some aspect of the No. 2 overall pick’s preparation for the 2015 season.

When it comes to finishing games, Zac Curtis is just getting started.

Based on the early results, though, there seems to be no end to what the 23-year-old out of Middle Tennessee State University might be able to accomplish in the role.

Javon Ringer took his lumps during his four seasons with the Tennessee Titans.

As a result, the backup running back settled a workers’ compensation claim with the team last week on a lump sum payment of $66,561.50 that frees the franchise and its insurers of any further liability, according to court documents.

Ryan Flaherty’s current hitless streak is a real head-scratcher.

In addition to all the time he has spent with hitting coach Scott Coolbaugh in search of a solution, the Baltimore Orioles infielder even has shaved his head in the hope that it will change his fortunes.
