The Vanderbilt Hustler: Vanderbilt's student news source and forum for student opinions

  • Vanderbilt wins 7-3 in Buehler's Kentucky homecoming

    LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Sunday was a homecoming of sorts for Vanderbilt pitcher Walker Buehler. The Lexington, Ky., native pitched brilliantly in his first collegiate start in his hometown, and a Jeren Kendall home run secured a second straight series victory for the Commodores.

  • Sloppy defense sinks Commodores as they fall 11-5

    Vanderbilt’s defense has consistently been a strong point for the team, as their .977 fielder percentage ranks 8th among power conference teams. But Saturday, numerous errors and poorly played balls sunk the Commodores despite another late rally in an 11-5 loss to Kentucky.

  • Fulmer's start, late rally lead Dores past Kentucky 13-3

    Carson Fulmer has been one of the most dominant pitchers in college this season. He’s been incredibly dominant at home with a 0.88 ERA, but he hasn’t been quite as sharp on the road.

  • Rookie of the year: Riley LaChance

    Coming into the season, one of the overarching questions for the Vanderbilt men’s basketball team was who the second best player was going to be. It was clear that Damian Jones was ready to step up to be one of the SEC’s premier big men, but the rest of the team was unclear.

  • Team of the year: Baseball

    The Commodores are the reigning 2014 National Champions. With a roster full of returning players and led by 13-year veteran coach Tim Corbin, a repeat doesn’t seem too far out of reach.

CORN: Courage of conviction and anonymity cannot coexist

Over the last year, I’ve published 158 pieces, editorials and letters on issues like race, sexual assault, mental health and abortion, as well as more university-specific issues like housing, student government and even tailgating. Most, with a few notable exceptions, were written by individuals or groups who had their names and email addresses attached to the sentiments or stories they thought were important enough to spend a couple hours constructing a piece about.
