After the Gonzaga game, I gotta think that the Vols are our scariest rival this season. Of course, The Admiral was unconscious in the second half, especially down the stretch, and he will not be that guy every game (probably). But still, the starting five on this team are playing together, they play excellent defense, and they rebound, rebound, rebound at both ends of the floor. They are tough minded and disciplined on offense. Coach Barnes has them playing with energy, dedication, and a belief that they can win if they play every possession to their potential. Auburn and Tennessee play very different styles of BB. With Kentucky flailing around with their me-first crop, and Miss State competitive but showing weaknesses, as things stand right now, you gotta wonder if the last game of the season between the Tigers and the Vols will determine the SEC regular season championship. Of course, it is way premature to be looking that far ahead. As we saw last season, one key injury can do real damage, while the emergence of players (maybe Purifoy) introduce unknown advantages (or not). But the fact is, the game between Tennessee and Gonzaga was exciting basketball. Really exciting basketball at a national level. And what it really showed the country (and Auburn vs Duke did not) is that the SEC is not just a football conference.
