(This is not the man that I loved to hate when LSU comes to town)
Well, Coach Pelphrey's sophomore season is winding down with only three home games remaining starting tonight with LSU and finishing up with Georgia and Ole Miss.
LSU is playing well this season under new coach Trent Johnson. Man, how I miss crazy John Brady and his group of underachievers. Instead, we get a team ranked 23rd in the AP poll with 21 wins and only four losses (Texas A&M, Utah, Alabama, and Xavier), and is 9-1 in the SEC.
Marcus Thornton leads LSU in scoring at 20 points per game which is only second to the man that single-handedly stomped on Bud Walton's grave when he was here - Jodie Meeks of Kentucky.
Courtney Fortson is expected to be back in uniform tonight for the Hogs, so at least we have that going for us.
It's a 7pm tipoff tonight with no television, so go to the game if you have tickets and a strong stomach. Personally, I'm just going to pretend it's still John Brady and his group of underachievers on the opposing bench and won't be a bit surprised when Arkansas gets their second SEC win of the year.
