Anchor Drop, January 4, 2022: Arkansas Tonight

Oh, great. That house of horrors.

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt opens SEC play tonight at 7:30 PM CT on the SEC Network, and as the SEC hates us, they’re giving us a chance to kill off the momentum from the Diamond Head Classic by traveling to Bud Walton Arena. And if it seems like we never win in that house of horrors, it’s because we don’t: since Bud Walton Arena opened in the 1993-94 season, Vanderbilt is 3-14 there. Not to mention, the Commodores have lost seven in a row overall to the Razorbacks, with an average margin of nearly 18 ppg (note: this includes the game where Bryce Drew tried to recruit Barry Booker.)

So, ah hell, I hope we win. That’s as far as I’m gonna get.
