Wow. Have we really not won in Tuscaloosa since 1998? Huh.

Stuff to watch for:

  • Arc
  • Arc
  • A triple double from Tyler Smith (it could happen)
  • Arc
  • Ramar Smith to keep his place in the starting lineup
  • Former starter and consummate team player Jordan Howell to be cheering from the bench
  • Frustration in the form of too many blocked shots, and
  • Arc

. . . Go Vols! Hulk smash Tide!
