Let's see. A trophy in Knoxville. A trophy in Memphis. What a concept!

It is a good thing the personnel matchups are so much different against Stanford. The Vols looked totally lost on offense, had some notable defensive lapses, and if Fowles hand not had a miserable shooting performance the outcome might have been very different. Of course the same thing could be said about Parker. She can say the shoulder is ok, but anyone watching could tell that she was way off her offensive game. Fortunatley Tuesday is another night, and the Stanford defense is not on par with LSU. Go Lady Vols.

First off, the way Fowles acted, she should have been thrown out of the game for her unsportsmanship and foul language. It's bad whe the kids watching the TV can tell you the bad language they saw come across her lips.Second, Parker may have said all was ok but anyone with sense could tell that she was not playing as usual. She tolerated pain of various levels throughout the entire game. Doesn't say a whole lot for a team that doesn't seem to perform up to par when just one player is handicapped. From my point of view, both teams were in that shape.

It was probaly the worst college game I ever watched and I know it was the roughest. I don't see why they need officials if anything goes.
