Anchor Drop, December 2, 2023: How can this week get worse?

The basketball team hosts Alabama A&M today.

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Yesterday’s transfer portal body count: London Humphrey, Walter Taylor, and Jayden McGowan.

So how can this week possibly get worse? Well, the basketball team plays Alabama A&M today at 4 PM CT on the SEC Network+. Alabama A&M is very bad — 345th in KenPom, 1-5 on the season after beating Tennessee State in overtime the other night.

Or somebody else could enter the transfer portal. Today’s also championship Saturday on the football side, and I probably won’t blame you if you watch that. Or the Division III playoffs.
