Take Me To Another Land

You remember the band Arrested Development? Maybe. Maybe not. Well, one of their big hits in the early 90's was a song called "Tennessee." In case you forgot, here are the lyrics to the chorus:

Take me to another place
Take me to another land
Make me forget all that hurts me
Help me understand your plan

Now, if I was living in Tennessee, that would be my feelings exactly.

Anyway, pertinent musical info aside, I'm here today to look at how the Arkansas Razorbacks are going to take down the Basketvols in Knoxville Wednesday night.

(Bruce Pearl: Just crazy or crazy like a horribly embarassing orange fox?)

The Preview:

Arkansas 17-5 (6-2) at #4 Tennessee 21-2 (8-1)
Tipoff: 7:05pm
TV: Raycom Sports

Tennessee is considered the best team in the SEC and with good reason. They are arguably the most athletic and best shooting team in the conference. It seems like Chris Lofton has started to really find his stroke going for 20+ points in five of their last six games.

(Chris Lofton is such a prima donna that he requires his "lesser" teammates to carry him to the bench when timeouts are called)

There are a lot of questions heading into the game that will determine the outcome: Will Arkansas be able to control the pace and pound away at Tennessee inside? Will the Hogs be able to win the battle on the boards? Can the Razorbacks limit their turnovers against a Tennessee team that is forcing opponents into 20 turnovers a game and has a +7 turnover margin against opponents? Will Gary Ervin punch Chris Lofton in the groin early on to set the tone?

I say yes, yes, yes, and let's hope so. Arkansas wins at Tennessee for the second time in three years either 99-38 or somewhere around 78-75.

(One things for certain, there's a 100% probability that there's a 50-50 chance that we'll get to see the worst looking sports jacket in college basketball on display Wednesday night)

And finally, Patrick Beverley is getting a little love this Valentine's eve towards the end of Pat Forde's column at

Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to
tell someone!
