Tilly’s back! And with him are out unyielding expectations!
Seriously though it’s been a tough week and a half for Mizzou Basketball. They’re 0h-for-the-last-three games, and have tumbled from 10th to 20th in the AP poll, and from a projected 4-seed to a projected 6-seed. But our hopes have hinged on two of those games being without Jeremiah Tilmon. The Tigers big man has been having his best season this year, and he’s been an anchor on both offense and defense. So getting him back means they should win right?
Well you hope so!
The SEC is a damn disaster year after year. and teams good and bad lose games they shouldn’t and win games they shouldn’t and it gets weird all the time. Sometimes there’s a runaway winner, this year its Alabama, and everyone else has at least two wins and four losses. There are two teams with 4 losses, two with 5, three with 6, five with 8, and one with 7.
LSU hosts Auburn today with a chance to move into a tie for second with idle Arkansas. Tennessee (4th place) faces Kentucky who’ve won two in a row. The standings are changing nearly daily, and Mizzou needs to right their ship to stay on the top half of the bracket. The good news is it’s a relatively early tip, so we have hoops to watch pretty soon here.
