Know your enemy- Jacksonville Dolphins

The mighty Dolphins come to T-town sporting a 2-9 record... and on a 7 game losing streak. They got beat by the fighting Mike Davis's of UAB in their last contest. This should amount to be a scrimmage game.

Season stats

Keith McDougald and Glenn Powell lead the team with 11.3 PPG. Powell is also their leading rebounder. McDougald and Chris Davis are their best 3 pt shooters.

They'll rotate 10 in the game on most nights... not that it'll matter against us. This is a really bad team collecting a check for a beatdown. Anything less than that and I'll be concerned.

The numbers:
- .413 FG
- 63.1 PPG (74.2 PPG against)
- .341 3pt FG
- .611 FT
- 14.8 turnovers

Prediction- this should be treated as a scrimmage game and we should be emptying the bench early. I suspect both Eblen and Engstrom will score (or at least get on the stat sheet) with Mitchell posterizing 3-4 different players. Alabama by 32.

Game time is again a late 9PM EST start (8PM CST) on 12/29. It's on Comcast Sports SE which I'll actually be able to see in sunny FL.

Bama should win with relative ease though I'm concerned how jazzed the team will be after coming back from the Christmas break. Plus, if the shooting returns to normal (i.e. bad) that could allow Jacksonville to hang around.
