In the now imortal words of Gerry Dorsey from the comments section below:
Nothin' says slump buster like a mediocre Bama team debuting an interim coach on the road.
Indeed, the Tide was just what the Hogs needed Thursday night before a decent crowd inside of Bud Walton Arena. Given the fact that there are still thousands of homes and businesses without power in the area, the game went off and so did the Hogs.
Students sported Courtney Fortson dreadlock wigs while Rotnei Clarke did some slump bustin' of his own raining six threes on an Alabama defense that had trouble staying with the six foot guard out of Oklahoma who had a career high of 26 for the Hogs.
No time to celebrate as the Hogs are in Louisiana today to take on a LSU team playing very well at home. The Tigers only loss at home was last Saturday to Xavier and they come into today's game leading the SEC West at 4-1.
