LSU-Vanderbilt: What Title Game?

By Jessica Garrison - March 04, 2007

Both Friday and Saturday nights when I drove in to the Gwinnett Center an hour before game time, there were traffic cops and cones and parking directions stretched as far back as the exit off I-85. Tonight I had to convince myself I hadn't taken the wrong exit, since the road leading to the arena looked relatively dead and the parking lot more so...Where's all the orange?

The Tennessee fan contingent might have been obnoxious at times, but man they did put bodies in the seats. The one advantage to all the title-night attrition? My seat on press row has moved up in the world. Any closer to the prime seating at center court and I'd be giving Doris Burke bunny ears.

(By tip-off, the arena was a little better than half full -- a handful of hardy orange sweatshirts still stick out, while the LSU and Vandy fans do their darndest to fill this place with a little noise.)
