I'm excited to see the team getting some great crowds at the games as of late.

Looks like another packed house this weekend.

Stro - I agree we could be considered in contention for the SEC crown, especially after ole miss took down Kentucky last night. It's a long road, but we will see. I think our matchup tonight is fairly favorable with Tenn's lack of defense.

Big time game tonight for the LSU basketball team. Although I don't expect them to win the game, this would be one huge stride towards the NCAA tournament for the Tigers. In fact, LSU would be considered one of the early season favorites to win the entire SEC if they leave Knoxville with a victory. Both teams are coming off losses on their homecourts, and it should be a very competitive game. Geaux Tigers!
