SEC Tournament Day 1: Bring On The Rebels!

03/10/2011 04:12 PM

Hello, friends. Did you watch the Ole Miss vs. South Carolina game? Pretty hard to watch, right? That’s what we call Day 1, Session 1 basketball in the SEC Tournament. We watch it because we feel obligated to, but it’s about as interesting as watching paint dry. Better yet, it’s about as interesting as watching paint dry on the Georgia Dome floor during the first session of the SEC Tournament. By the looks of the crowd on TV, rows A through B were half-full in the Georgia Dome and the rest was as vacant as a South Carolina basketball trophy case.

One positive thing from following this game – well, the only positive thing – is Kentucky fans found out UK’s next opponent. For those of you who like the sweet taste of revenge, you’re in luck… Kentucky will face the Rebels again.

Tomorrow’s second round matchup is Kentucky’s chance for vengeance against Andy Kennedy and his band of cabbie-punching Rebels. Ole Miss’s Chris Warren and four random guys wearing identical jerseys beat the then No. 10 ranked Cats 71-69 on February 2nd. But tomorrow, on March 11, the story will be completely different. It’s on. This is CATlanta.

Talk to you soon.

Go Cats.
