The Cats are just about an hour away from tipping off against their third straigth SEC West opponent. Like the other two inter-conference matches, the Cats will have a lot of athleticism and physicality thrown at them by a team that probably doesn’t match up talent-wise. But, this is a team that nearly beat the Cats at Rupp last year and will be ready to roll in Oxford after Andy Kennedy found out that Mark Scherbenske’s middle name is Abdullaj and got freakin’ pissed. Allegedly.
The Cats are 95-11 against the Rebs all-time including a 25-8 record in Oxford. I think they’ll do the same to Ole Miss in year 1 A.B.S. (After Brian Smith) and walk away with a 76-58 win.
Use this space to predict and discuss the game – especially for those of us who have a business dinner and will be feverishly refreshing this site on their cell phone for updates.
