MidWeek Games (2/12-13)

If you ever come down with a nasty sinus infection, The Dead Guy highly recommends a "Sinus Cocktail" shot. At this very moment I feel like I could float away at any time, so before I drift off to LalaLand, here's a quick look at tonight and tomorrow night's games...

Kentucky @ Vanderbilt

Vandy picked up 2 nice road wins last week and now has 4 straight at home, where they're unbeaten. If Kentucky can control the pace tonight and play a little D, this could be a great game. I'm picking the hot hand though... Vandy wins a close one.
***UPDATE: 2/13/08*** By close game, I mean a "not-close" game. I was only kidding when I said close

South Carolina @ Georgia
The Gamecocks have won in Fayetteville and Oxford, but may come out flat in this one after letting a game get away from them Saturday against Vanderbilt. Georgia will again be shorthanded and come up empty. USC wins.

Ole Miss @ Alabama
OM Leading scorer chris Warren was held scorelss against Presbyterian last night (on a Monday night? WTF?). He'll be the key to this game as Bama has no real PG. Look for OM to force a lot of TOs and pick up their first conference road win of the season.

LSU @ Florida
I like Butch Pierre and his fivehead. He's been thrust into a rough situation, but had the Tigers ready to play Saturday against UT. This one won't have the same story line. This will be all Gators all the time. UF wins big.

Arkansas @ Tennessee
This will be one helluva game. Both teams are cruising right now. Both played close games on Saturday, but forgive them if their focus had already drifted to this game. Can UT keep Arkansas off the glass? Can Arkansas keep UT from running them out of the building? When the dust finally settles, I'm picking the home team int his one, with a rockin' Thompson-Boling the difference. UT wins a great one.
