Hoops. Nobody on this Tennessee team has ever lost to South Carolina, and they don't plan to do so tonight. Hopefully, the crowd, which ranks 5th in the nation in showing up for games (or, for the more cynical, 5th in the nation in conspiratorial turnstyles), will continue to do their part. Tennessee is 10-3 at home this season and has won 8 of its last 9 in Knoxville. Jeronne Maymon, Mike Griffith's mid-season MVP, may have a little to do with the outcome tonight as well. Perhaps Cameron Tatum, too, who is only six points away from 1,000 for his career. As we said yesterday, there's a lot on the line tonight against the Gamecocks, and not getting it done would be quite disappointing. So let's everybody show up, aight?
Recruiting. LB Kenneth Bynum and his parents enjoyed their visit to Rocky Top this week, and Bynum hopes to make a decision by Thursday. And yes, he caught the positive vibe he was looking for, even on a Monday/Tuesday on a college campus. However, said vibe was reportedly hot sauce-free, because, as we know, hot sauce has no nutritional value. (Yeah, don't skip that last link.)
Extras after the jump.
