    A Vanderbilt University alumnus who is touted as one of the chief architects of the early COVID-19 vaccine will return to his alma mater to give a speech, the school recently announced. “Pathbreaking immunologist, virologist, educator and leader Barney S. Graham, PhD’91, will deliver the School of Medicine Basic Sciences Dean’s Lecture on Monday, Oct. 17, at 4 p.m. CT in the Jacobs Believed In Me Auditorium at Featheringill Hall,” said a press release from the school. “Graham was the chief architect of the first experimental COVID-19 vaccines and earned the 2021 Vanderbilt University Distinguished Alumnus Award.” Graham’s lecture is titled “Reflections on Pandemics and the Future of Medicine.” “Dr. Graham’s expertise and innovation reinforce the power of research as a means to advance knowledge, educate and save lives during this unprecedented moment in our nation’s history,” Vanderbilt Chancellor Daniel Diermeier said. “He embodies the value of scientific excellence, curiosity and commitment and could not be more deserving of this recognition.” The COVID-19 vaccine has become a flashpoint of controversy, as the federal government faces lawsuits for mandating the shots in the...

    The Vanderbilt Athletics Twitter account threw massive shade at Tennessee after their Music City Bowl loss to Purdue. The Tennessee Volunteers did not end 2021 the way they had envisioned. They had the chance to kick a walk-off field goal in regulation of the Music City Bowl, but it sailed wide right. Then, they looked to have scored a touchdown in overtime, but the referees called the play dead after running back Jaylen Wright appeared to have crossed the goal-line. The Purdue Boilermakers kicked a field goal on the very next possession of overtime to clinch the 48-45 victory. As if things could not get any worse for Tennessee, their in-state rivals in the Vanderbilt Commodores threw massive shade at them. How so? They pointed out that they and Purdue have won in Nashville this year, while Tennessee has not.

    ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) — Shaina Pellington hit an off-balance layup at the buzzer to lift No. 9 Arizona past pesky Vanderbilt 48-46 on Thursday in the Virgin Islands Paradise Jam tournament. With the game tied at 46, Arizona put the ball in Pellington’s hands. She drove from the left wing and her off-balance scoop layup dropped in just before the horn sounded, setting off a celebration under the Wildcats’ basket. Sam Thomas had 13 points and Ariyah Copeland 11 points for the Wildcats (5-0), who survived an upset attempt by the Commodors (3-3). Demi Washington and Iyana Moore had 10 points each for Vanderbilt, which rallied from going down by as many as 15 points midway through the second quarter. Arizona led 22-7 with 6:30 left in the second on Lauren Ware’s layup, but the Commodores fought back to cut the Wildcats’ lead to 24-16 at the half. Vanderbilt then mounted a rally in the fourth quarter, eventually tying it at 46-all on Brinae Alexander’s layup with 7.6 seconds remaining, BIG PICTURE Arizona: Not an impressive game...
    Dan Mullen has been fired as the Florida Gators’ head coach as the Missouri Tigers pulled off an unlikely win. What does that do to the SEC power rankings entering Rivalry Week? The Florida Gators have made the decision to move on from Dan Mullen after a fairly embarrassing display in the Gators’ game against the Missouri Tigers. That wasn’t the only reason Florida fired its head coach, but it was apparently the last straw for the Gators. Now Florida will be without a head coach during its rivalry game as it tries to become eligible for a bowl game. The Gators weren’t the only disappointment this week. Elsewhere in the SEC, the South Carolina Gamecocks earned bowl eligibility with a surprising win over the Auburn Tigers. To a lesser degree, the Ole Miss Rebels disappointed a little as the Rebels looked a little sluggish when facing the Vanderbilt Commodores compared to their typical performances. How do the SEC power rankings look this week?If not for Vanderbilt, Florida would be at the bottom of the SEC power rankings 14 Commodores...
    Women in skirts, beware! Exhibitionists, rejoice! Manhattan’s newest attraction, Summit, a sky-high observation deck with mirrored floors, has been forced to introduce a dress code to spare the blushes of visitors wanting to preserve their modesty. But, since it’s merely a recommendation, people who like having their underwear projected onto reflective surfaces can get a cheap thrill. The Post stopped by the tourist magnet on its opening day to investigate rumors about the "upskirting" headache caused by the venue’s "immersive art experience" known as "Air." Quoted in a press release, its creator Kenzo Digital, who works incognito like famed guerilla artist Banksy, said the installation "shares the intoxicating sense of aspiration and inspiration that New York gives … A beacon of possibility that pays tribute to all that New York is, can be, will be." Members of the public visit the Summit One Vanderbilt observation deck on Oct. 21, 2021 in New York City. Summit One, which opened to the general public, will join the Top of the Rock, Empire State Building, One World Observatory and the Edge in...
    STANFORD AT VANDERBILT Records: Stanford (1-1, 1-0 Pac-12); Vanderbilt (1-1 0-0, SEC) Kickoff: 5 p.m., Vanderbilt Stadium, Nashville Radio: KNBR (1050 AM) Television: ESPNU Series history: Stanford has never played Vanderbilt. The schools announced a four-game series in 2015, with Stanford hosting games in 2024 and 2027 and visiting Nashville in 2021 and 2025. Storylines: Stanford bounced back from a 24-7 loss to Kansas State with a 42-28 win over then-No. 14 USC, which led to the firing of Trojans coach Clay Helton. Vanderbilt had a similar trajectory, with a dispiriting opening-week loss at home (to FCS-level East Tennessee State) followed by a bounce-back road win, at Colorado State. Sure it’s an SEC road game, but this is as easy as the schedule gets for Stanford this season. Up next, a 14-day stretch in which the Cardinal face No. 13 UCLA, No. 4 Oregon and No. 19 Arizona State. Matchup to watch: Stanford running game vs. Vanderbilt front seven. The Cardinal hasn’t been able to sustain its rushing offense through two games but...
    BOSTON (CBS) —  The Red Sox are an a fairly enviable position. The team sits in first place in the AL East and is 20 games above .500, but they also own the No. 4 overall pick in this weekend’s MLB Draft. Chaim Bloom will make that selection Sunday night shortly after 7 p.m., and it should give the Sox a much needed injection of talent in the team’s farm system. Boston has some promising names in its system, but only three prospects in the Top 100; Tristan Casas at No. 30, Jeter Downs at No. 35 and Jarren Duran at No. 86. So as hard as that abysmal 2020 season was to sit through, it should help the the Red Sox boost their prospect pool. Here are some of the most intriguing players who could become promising prospects of the future for the Boston Red Sox. Jack Leiter, RHP, Vanderbilt He’s the best pitching prospect in baseball, and though he would love to join the Red Sox franchise, Leiter may not be around when it’s Boston’s turn to pick....
    The 2020 trade deadline was unusually quiet for the Giants and president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi, but the one player they did acquire is no longer with the organization. According to a report from The New York Daily News, left-handed pitcher Anthony Banda has been traded to the New York Mets in exchange for infield prospect Will Toffey. Banda, who joined the Giants in a minor trade with the Rays last summer, posted a 6.86 ERA in 10 games (5 starts) with Triple-A Sacramento this year before being dealt to the Mets on Friday. The southpaw spent the second half of the 2020 season on the Giants’ 40-man roster, but was outrighted to Triple-A in November before receiving an invitation to major league spring training this year. The organization was hopeful Banda’s fastball-changeup combination could turn him into a useful major league arm, but the lefty gave up 52 hits including seven home runs in 39 1/3 innings with the River Cats this year before he was traded. Toffey, a former fourth round draft choice of the...
    SenitinelOne Exceeds IPO Goal to Raise $1.2 Billion 25 Secret Money Traps at Target, Walmart and Other Big-Box Stores Vanderbilt Athletic Directory Candice Storey Lee condemned on Tuesday racist slurs she says were directed at parents of Commodores players at the College World Series. Lee wrote on Twitter that the slurs were used during Vanderbilt's Game 1 win over Mississippi State in Omaha, Nebraska on Monday night.  "I am deeply troubled that some of our student-athlete parents were subjected to racist slurs during last night's game," Lee wrote. This is absolutely unacceptable and disgraceful behavior, and such hateful language has no place anywhere in our society." Lee offered her "full support" to parents who were subjected to hateful language.  What was said and who said it were not immediately clear. TD Ameritrade Park communications director Kristyna Engdahl confirmed to the Associated Press that stadium officials were aware of a conflict involving racist slurs on Monday.  “We absolutely denounce this behavior and are saddened to learn that it took place in TD Ameritrade Park Omaha,” Engdahl told AP. “Tonight, we...

    Portia de Rossi Rushed to Hospital Friday by Ellen DeGeneres for Appendicitis Surgery The Most Expensive Suburbs in Every State During the first practice of his head-coaching career last Wednesday, Clark Lea would not admit to being overwhelmed. That will be left for some future assessment. 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. Since 1974, one coach (James Franklin) has left the school with a winning record. The last winning season was 2013. The facilities could use some sprucing up, to put it charitably. This is a school that once eliminated the athletic director position. For large stretches of its history, Vanderbilt has been the SEC's whip-smart little brother who could...
    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Clark Lea remembers only too well the agony of playing for the Vanderbilt Commodores, working hard only to pile up far too many losses. The first-time head coach took a big step toward fixing that Wednesday with his first spring practice at his alma mater. A fullback between 2002 and 2004, Lea saw the Commodores go 6-29 in that span and said he still feels some of the pain from of those frustrating losses. “Those challenges are what drove me into coaching honestly,” Lea said. “It was like, ‘How do we get this where no one else has to experience this level of disappointment?’” Lea was hired in December to take over his alma mater and turn around a program that has perennially held down the cellar of the Southeastern Conference. Vanderbilt fired Derek Mason in November after going 3-18 over his last two seasons, and the Commodores had just two bowl berths in his tenure. Vanderbilt has 17 starters back, a head coach ready to grow into his new role and...

The Commodores, who won only three league games in the regular season, had their chances for a second SEC win within 24 hours. Pippen pulled Vanderbilt within 64-63 with a pair of free throws with 1:40 left.

Mitchell Katz, the president and CEO of NYC Health + Hospitals, confirmed that vaccine appointments had to be cancelled at Gotham Health/Vanderbilt clinic in Clifton on Sunday after the facility used up all its shots. “We ran out of vaccine at Vanderbilt, which is not our fault, but it is our fault … that people were not given correct phone calls to tell them that they – that their appointment was canceled,” Katz said during Mayor Bill de Blasio’s press briefing after a reporter asked about the matter. “We are currently working on rescheduling all...
    (CBSDFW.COM) – North Texas native and Vanderbilt football kicker Sarah Fuller got an opportunity to take part in history as she introduced Vice President Kamala Harris during an inauguration celebration Wednesday evening.

She made history on Nov. 28,...
    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. Arkansas (11-5, 2-4 Southeastern Conference) is scheduled to visit Georgia on Monday night. Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

    People from across the political spectrum expressed annoyance with Anderson Cooper's 'out of touch' jibe claiming Trump fanatics would be going back to 'Olive Garden and to the Holiday Inn they're staying at' to relish in their assault on the Capitol Wednesday.  Cooper - who inherited the bulk of his mother Gloria Vanderbilt's $200million fortune after she died in June of 2019 - was making the comments while showing scenes of the chaos that unfolded after President Trump told his supporters to march for the Capitol. '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,' he said.  'And they're going to go back to the Olive Garden and to the Holiday Inn they're staying at, or the Garden Marriott, and they're going to have some drinks and talk about the great day they had in Washington. They stood up for nothing other than mayhem.'  Anderson Cooper made the comments on Wednesday while showing scenes of the carnage at the Capitol Anderson Cooper just said...
    As quickly as Sarah Fuller stepped on the football field and made history, she’s stepping off to finish out her college career playing soccer.  The 21-year-old Vanderbilt senior will return to her position as a goalkeeper, but this time she’ll be dressing for the North Texas Mean Green as a graduate transfer after signing with the school on Wednesday, according to CBS Sports.   WIN BIG ON COLLEGE FOOTBALL’S CHAMPIONSHIP WEEKEND WITH FOX SUPER 6 "A big part of our championship success at UNT has always been having a great keeper in goal for us throughout my time here," North Texas head coach John Hedlund said. "Sarah brings that presence with her experience as the starter for Vanderbilt this season and playing in the SEC." Fuller made history as the first female to play in a Power Five conference game on Nov. 28 with a squib kickoff to open the second half at Missouri.

    Fauci predicts herd immunity for US by late spring or early summer Here’s what might replace America’s disappearing Confederate monuments Reports: Notre Dame defensive coordinator Clark Lea takes head coach job at Vanderbilt Notre Dame defensive coordinator Clark Lea will reportedly take over the reins at Vanderbilt, his alma mater, after three years leading the Irish defense, two of which featured undefeated regular seasons and almost assuredly two Playoff berths. ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg was the first of multiple reports with the news Monday morning. © Getty Images A walk-on fullback for the Commodores in 2002-04, Lea was at the top of the list of expected candidates when Vanderbilt fired Derek Mason two weeks ago, and though the athletic director suggested an offensive focus in the coaching search, Lea remained an obvious possibility. He has simply been too successful at Notre Dame to not have been. Such is the price of program-wide success, and Irish head coach Brian Kelly acknowledged the distinct likelihood of Lea’s departure on Sunday. Lea will remain with Notre Dame through the completion of its season. “Clark’s...
    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Interim coach Todd Fitch expects Vanderbilt will have enough players for their final home game of the season. The Tennessee Volunteers might want to play Saturday even more than Vanderbilt with each team viewing matchup as its best and likely last chance to end ugly skids before this very unusual season ends. The Commodores (0-8) have lost eight straight and are trying to avoid the first winless season in school history. Tennessee (2-7) already has tied the longest skid in its vaunted history with six straight losses at a program with only eight seasons with seven or more losses. “Our opportunities are running out,” Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt said. “I think both sides will be aggressive and try to do everything that they can to play at the best of their ability.” Vanderbilt has been through a lot the past two weeks. Coach Derek Mason was fired the day after a 41-0 loss at Missouri, and Fitch was a day away from coaching his first game as interim last week when the Southeastern Conference...
    With several special teams players sidelined due to COVID-19, the Vanderbilt football team could make history and turn to a female soccer player to be their kicker. The Vanderbilt Hustler reported that Sarah Fuller, the starting goalkeeper for the Commodores women’s soccer team, practiced with the football team as a kicker on Tuesday. While she did not take a snap, she walked through “with coaches and at least one specialist on the sidelines” in full pads and uniform. During a spot on 102.5 The Game in Nashville Wednesday, Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason confirmed that Fuller “is an option for us.” If Fuller, a senior from Wylie, Texas, plays against Missouri Saturday, it is believed she would be the first woman to participate in a Power 5 football game. The 0-7 Commodores have had trouble in the kicking game after graduate transfer Oren Milstein opted out over the summer. The only player to attempt field goals this season, Pierson Cooke, is 3-for-7.

    Vanderbilt’s football game at Missouri on Saturday has been postponed because COVID-19 issues have left the Commodores without enough players. The Southeastern Conference announced Monday the game has been tentatively rescheduled for Dec. 12. It is the first SEC game rescheduled due to COVID-19-related problems and the 28th FBS game overall to be postponed or canceled since Aug. 26. The SEC started a conference-only schedule Sept. 26, a few weeks later than the rest of the FBS conferences that began play in September. Vanderbilt (0-3) played with only 56 scholarship players last week in a loss to South Carolina. The school said Monday it would not be able to reach the SEC’s 53-player minimum this week “due to the quarantining of individuals with positive tests and those designated as close contacts, along with injuries and opt-outs.” Vandy had six players opt out of the season, including four offensive lineman. ___ More AP college football: https://apnews.com/tag/Collegefootball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25 Copyright © 2020 The Associated Press.

    Developer SL Green, which launched its One Vanderbilt skyscraper at a ceremony Monday where Mayor de Blasio cut the ribbon, is counting on a lavish new restaurant to lure more office tenants – and to make the tower synonymous with glamorous dining as the Four Seasons once did for the Seagram Building. SL Green has restaurant tenants in its other office buildings. But in a departure, the real estate company isn’t merely a landlord to superchef Daniel Boulud at One Vanderbilt, but a full-fledged partner. SL Green CEO Marc Holliday said it’s putting up most of the dough for Le Pavillon by Daniel Boulud, an 11,000 square-foot eatery on the second floor overlooking Grand Central Terminal next door. Boulud’s company, Dinex Group, will put in some money as well and manage and operate the 120-seat dining room. The Post first reported plans for Boulud’s restaurant at the site in 2017. It’s believed to be the first such partnership for SL Green, which is the landlord of chef Daniel Humm’s acclaimed Eleven Madison Park, or EMP, at 11 Madison Ave....

    NASHVILLE, Tenn.
