On a very special episode of Live from West End, athletic director Candice Lee virtually joins Sports Editor Andrew Wilf and Deputy Sports Editor Aiden Rutman in the studio. Together, the three discuss the changing scape of college athletics with the introduction of NIL and the streamlining of the transfer process. Lee also offers insight into Vandy United and its progress, as well as her vision for the future of not just Vanderbilt athletics, but the university as a whole. The three end with discussions of some of Lee’s favorite memories as both a student-athlete and the athletic director of Vanderbilt. Upon Candice’s departure, Andrew and Aiden end with breakdowns of Vanderbilt Men’s and Women’s Basketball’s first games, including what went right for head coach Shea Ralph and Co., and what went wrong for head coach Jerry Stackhouse and his Commodores.
