Well, you can’t win em all...

Well... you can’t win em all.

Especially with that ridiculous officiating. My God, it was abysmal. Even Sam commented on it, and he normally doesn’t say much about it. So did everyone’s favorite former walk on, Jarrett Sutton. (Update: it appears Sutton deleted his tweet)

And Souichi Terada, who had a more humorous take.

Also, side note— did the announcers really grate on anyone else’s nerves?!? They REALLY love Auburn. And Sharife Cooper. You’d think he was the next LeBron or MJ or something. Granted, he is VERY good, but wow... it was a lot. (insert eye roll)

Anyway, loss aside (Auburn was actually favored in this one, y’all), let’s look at the good stuff that happened, because there was good stuff. (and bad stuff, but I’ll leave that to Matt & Sam)

Let’s talk about Dru! Big congrats to the SEC Player of the Week AND 1,000 point scorer, DRUUUUUUUUUUUUUU Smith!

And let’s talk about one of my personal faves... Jeremiah Tilmon! DINO JAMMIES with another double-double and SIX BLOCKS. Terrible free-throw shooting night aside (because it really was horrendous), he and Dru really put in the work Tuesday evening. Javon also had a great night, with 13 off the bench on 6/10 shooting.

On to the Links! Everyone, just breathe. We’ve got plenty of season left.

Listen to Johnny Rose.

  • Don’t forget about Women’s Hoops, who face two road games this week. First up is at Florida on Thursday, followed by a trip to No. 14/15 Kentucky on Sunday. Really hoping they can get over the hump, as they have a good team... they just need more time to practice together and build some chemistry.

Tuesday was a somber day as the sports world recalled the tragic anniversary of that fateful helicopter trip of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and the other passengers. Throughout the country, NBA teams and sports writers alike posted some great tributes —in video, in writing, and in their performances that evening (looking at you, Trae Young). Here are some of the ones I loved, and I’m sure I missed some. It’s one of those days, unfortunately, that many of us will never forget.

  • My favorite podcast, The Old Man & The Three, compiled Kobe stories from many of their guests the past year, and put them in a YouTube video. Here’s a snippet of it. (Warning: language)
  • NY Giants RB Saquon Barkley narrated this wonderful video for Uninterrupted.
