Samford game tonight

The Samford Bulldogs will make a short trip down I59 for a 7pm tipoff tonight. They come in with a record of 3-6, but they've played a fairly difficult schedule. The were competitive in the first half of games against Texas Tech and Texas A&M before losing by 20 or so. It will be interesting to see how their Princeton offense matches up with our aggressive defense. Their system is very similar to what Cornell runs, but thankfully they aren't nearly as good as Cornell, and we have improved since then. Still, this could be a dangerous game for us, in that it is the "sandwich" game against a fired up in-state opponent scheduled between 2 top 25 games. I suspect it will be a close game at halftime, but we should pull away and win easily in the 2nd half.
