    Thursday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. – host Leahy was joined on the newsmaker line by Tennessee Senate Majority Leader Jack Johnson, who is calling for Vanderbilt Medical Center to cease all irreversible pediatric transgender surgeries until the Tennessee General Assembly convenes in January to complete investigations and propose legislation. Leahy: We are joined on our newsmaker line right now, our good friend, State Senate Majority Leader Jack Johnson. Good morning, Jack. Johnson: Good morning, Michael and Clint. Good to be with you guys this morning. Leahy: Well, thanks, Jack. And I know you’re very busy. Yesterday, Jack, you met with Matt Walsh. And Matt Walsh uncovered this very controversial video of a couple of doctors at Vanderbilt’s gender clinic who said transgender surgeries are good because they make money for the hospital. And then another doctor said, if you don’t want to do these surgeries, you can leave if you’re a conscientious objector. The question is, what did you meet with...

Simon: Good morning, and it’s cooling off. Isn’t that nice? Leahy: It is, and mercifully so. Let’s get right to it. So, the big news: our friend Matt Walsh at The Daily Wire, you and I both went to the documentary … Simon: I wrote a review of it for Epoch Times. It was glowing. Leahy: Yes. It’s called What Is a Woman? Well, he released on Tuesday a videotape taken in 2018 of physicians at Vanderbilt University and Medical Center saying things like, transgender surgery: we’ll  make a lot of money at the hospital for it.

    A female-to-male chest masculinization surgery, also called "top surgery," can bring in as much as $40,000, Taylor states. She also notes that a patient receiving "routine hormone treatment" will visit the clinic just a few times each year but "can bring in several thousands dollars ... and actually makes money for the hospital." \u201cVanderbilt opened its trans clinic in 2018. During a lecture the same year, Dr. Shayne Taylor explained how she convinced Nashville to get into the gender transition game. She emphasized that it's a "big money maker," especially because the surgeries require a lot of "follow ups"\u201d — Matt Walsh (@Matt Walsh) 1663703694 Taylor goes on to describe how vaginoplasty surgeries, in which a man is castrated and doctors surgically create a fake vagina using tissue from his penis, can make as much as $20,000 in revenue, citing data from the Philadelphia Center for Transgender Surgery. She excitedly states that figure is likely an "underestimate" given costs for hospital stay, post-op visits, anesthesia, and other associated medical bills. She adds that female-to-male "bottom...
    TROY, N.Y. (AP) — Former Vanderbilt star right-hander Kumar Rocker returned to the mound Saturday night with the Class A Tri-City ValleyCats of the independent Frontier League, and his first experience as a pro ended after four innings of work. With several major league scouts and a near sellout crowd of 4,088 at Joseph L. Bruno Stadium on hand to get a glimpse of Rocker’s first game since last June 30, the hard-throwing, 6-foot-5, 245-pounder breezed through the first three innings against the Trois-Rivieres Aigles, his fastball topping out at over 98 mph. He threw 38 pitches and struck out five, all but the first one swinging, and allowed just a bloop single to left field by the second batter he faced, second baseman Ricardo Sanchez. But Rocker ran into trouble in the fourth, hitting the leadoff batter and tossing a wild pitch that prompted Tri-City manager Pete Incaviglia to make a brief visit to the mound with cleanup hitter Carlos Martinez at the plate. Rocker stayed in and allowed a two-run homer to left field to Martinez...
    Share this: ON THIS DAY IN 1908, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “The greatest invasion of eels that has ever come to Brooklyn is causing any amount of trouble to the Department of Water Supply. In one day this week sixty-eight complaints about eels lodged in water pipes reached the office of the deputy commissioner. These complaints came from all parts of the borough. At first the residents of the Heights thought that the visitors were coming to them alone, but now from Williamsburg, Bushwick and many other sections word comes that the drinking water tastes ‘fishy,’ that the pressure is slow or stopped altogether, that hydraulic motors and pipes are clogged, and even that live eels are dangling from the faucets.” *** ON THIS DAY IN 1915, the Eagle reported, “Considerable excitement marked the sailing of the Lusitania, of the Cunard line, which was scheduled to leave her pier at 10 o’clock yesterday morning, but had not made way an hour after that time.

    After Kentucky defeated Vanderbilt on Feb. 2, Kentucky coach John Calipari avoided a handshake with Vanderbilt coach Jerry Stackhouse— and here’s why.  After Kentucky defeated Vanderbilt 77-70 on Feb. 2, Kentucky coach John Calipari avoided shaking hands with Vanderbilt coach Jerry Stackhouse. From my view it looked like John Calipari gave Jerry Stackhouse the Eric Wolford goodbye. — Drew Franklin (@DrewFranklinKSR) February 3, 2022 Kentucky Sports Radio journalist Drew Franklin likened it to “the Eric Walford goodbye”, but after the game, he shared why Calipari waved off Stackhouse. Following the game, Calipari was asked if the physical element of the close match played a role in the coach refusing to shake his opponent’s hand. “No, no, no—,” Calipari interjected. “What happened, I’m looking around the country and many coaches are just doing what they do in the NBA, which I did. I acknowledged him.”Kentucky coach John Calipari on refusing to shake hands with Vanderbilt’s Jerry StackhouseWhat was initially interpreted as potential resentment was revealed to be nothing more than wary COVID-19 precautions.

Pippen made 5 of 6 foul shots to seal it. Pippen, who entered as the SEC’s leading scorer at 19.2 points per game, missed nine of 12 shots including 0 for 5 from 3-point...
    Tennessee football really does have a stranglehold on the state, with the Music City Bowl serving as the latest bit of evidence. Josh Heupel and the Vols used Vanderbilt’s stadium as practice turf this week in the lead-up to the Music City Bowl. With Tennessee virtually playing a home game in Nashville to end the season against Purdue, it’s another reminder just how far Vanderbilt has to go before they can equal their in-state rival. Nissan Stadium was packed with Tennessee orange on Thursday — once again not a surprise — while the Commodores struggle to fill Vanderbilt Stadium on a weekly basis each Saturday.Tennessee football: Josh Heupel can defeat Vanderbilt on Thursday, tooEven when Tennessee football was ‘down’ following the unceremonious exit of Jeremy Pruitt, the Vols owned the Volunteer State for a reason. With Heupel’s quick turnaround in a loaded SEC, they should only build upon that momentum. “He walked into such a challenging situation, and one of Josh’s strengths, having worked with him the last four years, is that he doesn’t get flustered,” said Tennessee athletic director...

                        A Vanderbilt University chair said that race-based admissions would prevent minorities from attaining leadership positions and “influential” employment. Cornelius Vanderbilt Chair Professor of Law and Economic Joni Hersch made this assessment in a legal studies research paper, “Affirmative Action and the Leadership Pipeline.” The paper is expected to appear in Tulane Law Review soon. Hersch wrote the article in response to the ongoing court case, Students for Fair Admissions (SSFA) v. Harvard. In the lawsuit, SSFA alleges that Harvard University discriminates against Asian applicants in its admissions process by engaging in racial balancing. The Supreme Court (SCOTUS) is weighing whether it should take on the case, after a lower court ruled in favor of Harvard. If SCOTUS were to take on the case, it would have to decide whether or not to overrule the landmark case Grutter v. Bollinger. Retired SCOTUS Justice Sandra Day O’Connor wrote in the majority opinion that race-based admissions were valid because diverse student bodies offer educational benefits. On Monday, SCOTUS requested that the Biden Administration weigh in on the case....

But the sights, the sounds, the decisions, the task of taking over Vanderbilt -- one of the most football-challenged programs in the country -- does have an impact. © Provided by CBS Sports "The horn blew one time when it shouldn't have," Lea explained. "Those are things we have to work through." If those out-of-cadence moments bother the new coach, well, they shouldn't. There are significantly larger issues at Vanderbilt. Lea knows that.

              Vanderbilt School of Law Professor Gautam Hans opined that social media companies should be on the offensive when it comes to regulating speech. In a spotlight series called “Ask an Expert” curated by Vanderbilt University, the assistant clinical professor suggested that these platforms ought to modify their approaches to content moderation. In the brief video, Hans asserted that proactive approaches could improve the current dissatisfaction shared across party lines. “It seemed to me that the platforms themselves, when it comes to how they regulate speech, have often been acting defensively in response to high-profile incidents rather than offensively trying to think about worst-case scenarios or what could arise down the line,” explained Hans. “I think that rules of transparency, of clarity, of prospective versus defensive thinking, I would hope would be articulated or at least instituted more coherently. The platforms themselves will find it in their best interests to do so to potentially stall any kind of legislative or regulatory proposal they’re not happy with.” The Tennessee Star inquired with Hans about his...
    A South Carolina mom not interested in politics has revealed how she was lured into QAnon conspiracy theories on TikTok when she lost her job during the pandemic. Ashley Vanderbilt, 27, has broken her silence to share how she became so indoctrinated by the extreme right-wing conspiracy that even her four-year-old daughter Emmerson knew 'something was wrong with her mom.'   Before getting caught up in QAnon, Vanderbilt said she was passive with politics, didn't read the news and had always been someone 'that you just tell me what to do and I do it.' She said she had always been a Republican as she grew up being told to be and was a Donald Trump supporter but ended up so far 'down the rabbit hole' she started viewing him as being above God.   She said only realized that she 'wasn't 100% there' after Joe Biden's inauguration when she called her mom and told her 'we're all going to die.'  The 27-year-old placed part of the blame on Donald Trump for pushing his agenda on 'fake news' and for not denouncing QAnon -...

    STORRS, Conn. (AP) — UConn’s 3rd-ranked women’s basketball team agreed Wednesday to play at No. 15 Arkansas on Jan. 28. Arkansas had been scheduled to host Vanderbilt, but the Commodores cut short their season because of complications from the COVID-19 pandemic. “When Vanderbilt opted out of the season Monday, we were lucky enough that UConn had a common open date as ours,” Arkansas coach Mike Neighbors said on the program’s website. “A few texts and a couple of calls later, we got it all set.” The Huskies (8-0, 7-0 Big East) have had four nonconference games canceled due to COVID-19 protocols and are scheduled to play just their second nonconference game of the season Thursday night at No. 25 Tennessee.

    CNN host Anderson Cooper continues to face criticism for taking a shot at the popular restaurant chain Olive Garden on Wednesday after the wealthy anchor speculated that the pro-Trump rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol probably would head there to eat and drink afterward. "Look at them, they’re high-fiving each other for this deplorable display of completely unpatriotic, completely against law and order, completely unconstitutional behavior, it’s stunning," the CNN anchor said. "And they’re going to go back, you know, to the Olive Garden and to the Holiday Inn they’re staying at, and the Garden Marriott, and they’re going to have some drinks and they're going to talk about the great day they had in Washington ... They stood up for nothing other than mayhem."

    Clark Lea has been tabbed as the man who will lead a renaissance at Vanderbilt. Despite Sarah Fuller’s historic moment in the spotlight, there wasn’t much to smile about on the football field, as an 0-9 season ended up costing Derek Mason his job. The Commodores needed someone who could instill discipline and knows what it takes to win at this university, and it appears as if they’ve found their man in Notre Dame defensive coordinator Clark Lea.

    Vanderbilt’s Sarah Fuller made history Saturday when she became the first woman to appear in a football game for a Power 5 school. She did so when she kicked off for the Commodores in the second half of their game against Missouri. Fuller drew unwarranted criticism from keyboard warriors on social media for her squib kick. Meanwhile, Vanderbilt didn’t put itself in a position to even score a field goal the entire game. SARAH FULLER BECOMES FIRST WOMAN TO PLAY IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL GAME FOR POWER 5 SCHOOL Commodores head coach Derek Mason defended Fuller, who came over to the football team in a pinch because they were dealing with coronavirus losses, after the game, according to Saturday Down South. “That was designed for her because that’s what she’s used to striking. We tried to go with the most natural kicks in her arsenal. Tried not to overcoach her but let her do and understand what felt comfortable to her and that’s what we went with. I thought she punched it just like she needed to, balls down at the...
    Vanderbilt women’s soccer player Sarah Fuller is poised to make history Saturday when she takes the field for the Commodores' football game against Missouri. Fuller is set to be used as the team’s placekicker and would be the first female to appear on a football field for an SEC school or any Power 5 conference team. Power 5 schools play in the ACC, Big 12, Big Ten, SEC or Pac-12. “Let's make history,” the senior Commodores goalkeeper wrote in a tweet with a picture of her in football gear with a soccer ball next to her and a football in her hands. She will be wearing “Play Like A Girl” on the back of her helmet. “I think it’s amazing and incredible.

    Missouri and Vanderbilt were supposed to play last month, only to have a combination of positive COVID-19 tests and contact tracing force the Southeastern Conference to juggle the schedule. The juggling continued this week: In the most 2020 combination of events, the Tigers had their game against Arkansas postponed from Saturday to another date for the same reason while Vanderbilt likewise had its game against Tennessee pushed back. It resulted in the chance for the Tigers and Commodores to finally take the field against each other. “I thank the SEC for finding us an opponent,” said Missouri coach Eli Drinkwitz, who had been planning to make up the game against the Commodores on Dec. 12. “Obviously not ideal to have to switch late. We were pretty much done with our game plan for the other team that we were going to play.” It’s not the first time Drinkwitz has had to make an abrupt change in course during his first season in Columbia. Missouri (3-3) moved its game against LSU from Baton Rouge to Faurot Field because of Hurricane Delta....
    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Dan Mullen sees no reason for sixth-ranked Florida to overlook winless Vanderbilt, not with what is on the line for the Gators this season. The Gators (5-1) sit atop the Southeastern Conference’s Eastern Division with a spot awaiting them in Atlanta on Dec. 19 in the league championship game and possibly a berth in the College Football Playoff — if they keep winning. They’re putting up the kind of offensive numbers seen when Florida won its first national title. Mullen also remembers Vanderbilt holding a 21-3 lead the last time his Gators visited Nashville. “If we want to be a great team, we have to get better,” Mullen said. “So not only you know, is that focus on your opponent, that focus is on yourself as well. If not, I guess I’ll put on a cheerleading outfit and get on the sidelines and start trying to motivate us that way.” Playing only a 10-game schedule also should be more than enough to get players’ attention on Saturday, even if the Gators have dominated...

    By TERESA M. WALKER, AP Sports Writer The Southeastern Conference had to postpone two games in the last three days because of positive COVID-19 tests, and now Alabama coach Nick Saban and his athletic director have tested positive for the virus ahead of the league’s biggest regular-season showdown. Saban said in a statement Wednesday that he'll be working from home with offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian overseeing the second-ranked Crimson Tide's preparations to play No. 3 Georgia on Saturday night. “At this time, I do not have any symptoms relative to COVID, and I have taken another PCR test to confirm my diagnosis,” said Saban, whose AD Greg Byrne also tested positive. No. 10 Florida's game against defending national champion LSU was postponed Wednesday to tentatively Dec. 12 after the SEC postponed Missouri-Vanderbilt on Monday. More positive tests could derail other games after the league waited until the end of September to kick off the season due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Gators started testing daily Sunday and paused activities Tuesday after 19 positives with about a dozen more quarantined through...

    No. 20 LSU (0-1) at Vanderbilt (0-1), Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET (SEC Network). Line: LSU by 21. Series record: LSU leads 23-7-1. WHAT’S AT STAKE? LSU needs a victory badly after the defending national champ lost its home opener. Vanderbilt missed a chance at a big upset on the road at Texas A&M, but the Commodores returned with a strong confidence boost after debuting a freshman quarterback in his first start along with a pair of new coordinators. KEY MATCHUP New coordinator Ted Roof’s aggressive Vanderbilt defense against an LSU offensive line adjusting to four new starters. LSU QB Myles Brennan was sacked seven times last week by Mississippi State, and the Commodores recovered three fumbles in their opener. PLAYERS TO WATCH LSU: WR Terrace Marshall Jr. The 6-foot-3 target caught eight passes for 122 yards last week, including touchdowns of 37 and 33 yards. Vanderbilt: QB Ken Seals. The freshman now gets to throw against a LSU defensive backfield that allowed Mississippi State QB K.J. Costello to pass for an SEC record 623 yards last week....
    Derek Stingley Jr. is ready to go for LSU this weekend after missing the season-opener vs. Mississippi State due to illness. Myles Brennan and LSU didn’t exactly start the 2020 season off in the best possible fashion, as their secondary was shredded by K.J. Costello, Mike Leach and Mississippi State to the tune of 623 passing yards in an upset win for the Bulldogs. It doesn’t take a genius to see the correlation between Costello having the game of his life and LSU playing without star corner Derek Stingley Jr. after his hospitalization earlier in the week. Luckily for Tiger fans, Stingley should be back on the field next week. Stingley’s father confirmed that his son is “good to go” after his hospitalization scare, meaning LSU will be able to deploy their elite cornerback against Vanderbilt this weekend. Derek Stingley Sr. told @OTB_ESPN that his son, LSU cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. “has no restrictions” after a hospitalization last Friday. “He’s good,” Stingley Sr. said. “He’s good to go.” — Wilson Alexander (@whalexander_) September 29, 2020 Derek Stingley Jr. might...
