Okay, so straight from Skip Bertman's mouth, just-terminated LSU coach John Brady will not coach today's game against Tennessee. Condolences, gramsey712.

Hey, didja know that LSU is one of only two teams in the SEC that has a winning record against Tennessee since the start of the 2005-06 season? They're 2-1 against us. The other, Kentucky, is 3-2.

Chris Lofton All-Time Career Three Watch:

  • needs three three-pointers to move into 7th; probable this game
  • needs 12 three-pointers to move into 6th; unreachable this game
  • is averaging 3.45 threes per game on the season, 5.17 over the past six games
  • assuming there are 15 games left in the season (nine regular season and six post season), needs to average 4.6 threes per game
