Well, we can't be worse than 0-18, so here's to a new season!

Kind of disappointed we're not doing the Champions Classic tomorrow!  The top 4 in the AP Poll are all squaring off- it should be an incredible way to open the season!!

#1 Michigan State vs. #2 Kentucky
#3 Kansas vs. #4 Duke

I know I haven't been making picks (I'll start in conference play), but I'm coming here to note that this was Duke's first home non-conference loss in almost 20 years!  And, the way it happened was insane- kind of like how I always imagined the finish of the first 16-over-1 upset, instead of a 20 point final that lacked any real drama!

It's time to accept that, one year after making history as the first SEC team in more than half a century to go winless in conference, we're going to do just that again.

The SEC losing streak stands at 23 and counting, back to the 2018 SEC Tournament.

LOL! You are actually favoured in the final game of the season by 0.1 vs. South Carolina! Apparently 3% chance of one win or less. 0-18 would be an incredible accomplishment given the (terrible) quality of the SEC this year. You have four home opportunities against terrible teams to avoid it.

Does that take into account Nesmith being shutdown?  Between that and SC beating UK I can't imagine Vandy being a favorite in any system.

I agree.  After the close loss at Auburn, I expected to win 4-5 SEC games, but Nesmith's injury drastically changes things.

As if this season couldn't get any worse, against our biggest rivals tonight, we lost our 1,080 game streak of making a 3-pointer, dating back to the introduction of the 3 point line.  We went 0-25 from the line and have now lost 24 straight SEC games, including the SEC Tournament.

Now, UNLV and Princeton are the last two schools that have made at least one 3 in every game since the introduction of the 3 point line.

Somebody named Maxwell Evans went 5-7 from 3pt line in the first half and has scored 25 pts as Vandy leads LSU 52-47 at the half.  Still wouldn't get too excited yet.

Now you can get excited

I didn't even watch the game because I had plans tonight, but imagine my shock when I checked my phone and saw the score!  Particularly against a team who was undefeated in the SEC.  Sports are weird sometimes!
