Well, there's no more Oden and no more Conley, but a little revenge for knocking us out of the Big Dance last year is still in order. We played them twice last year and lost by a grand total of three points. Let's multiply that by ten and return the favor this afternoon, whadayasay?

Expect a huge standing ovation, even from me in my living room, for Duke Crews if he gets into the game this afternoon. It's improbable, since he's not even been practicing for a long time, but I could see Pearl getting him some token time just for show. Pearl's like that. And I love it.

Didja know:

  • that Bruce Pearl's winning percentage of 78.4 ranks third nationally?
  • that with all of the high-powered scoring machines we have on the team, former walk-on JaJuan Smith leads everyone with 14.8 points per game?
  • that the Vols have scored 404 points in 16 games just on turnovers?
  • that the Vols are 38-2 at home since the beginning of the 2005-06 season?

Okay, then. Now you know.

Go Vols! Hulk smash Buckeyes!
