Tennessee @ Ole Miss: A Game Recap Written Before the Game Was Over

Um, ouch.  Let's not talk about this any more.  Look, the first hafl wasn't too bad, but by all rights and standards the second half was completely terrible.  Want a recap?  Go find the post I wrote about the Baby Vols a couple days ago.  Find it?  Run a find-replace; convert "Baby Vols" to "the men's team" and "Duke" to "Ole Miss."  The difference is we've come to expect more from this team, but hey, these things happen.

We'd like to thank Mississippi State, Georgia, and Vanderbilt for making sure that this trainwreck of a game we just laid up there doesn't actually hurt us in the standings.  Without y'all, we wouldn't be where we are today ....which was exactly where we were last week.  Awesome.  This isn't going to do anyone any favors when they talk about the quality of SEC basketball (why yes, that is two teams from the even-more-down-than-normal SEC West and the 5th and 6th teams from the SEC East beating the top 4 teams in the East in succession).

Yeah, it might seem I'm giving this game short shrift, but you'd do the same thing if you saw the game.  Don't believe me?  Check the game thread.  Trust me, it's better if nobody mentions this one agan.  Reluctant game balls to Tyler Smith and Wayne Chism.  The guard that destroyed us this time?  Terrico White.  The more things change, huh?

So this Saturday, we go into Rupp Arena needing a key win against Kentucky ... and you know what?  We'll do better then.  Lord knows it can't be much worse.
