After dropping one in Birmingham on Wednesday (making it five losses out of their last six games), the Tide rebounded to open SEC play, taking a the weekend series with Tennessee (boo! hiss!) 2-1. Even though Vol Terry has been banned, I'm sure he wouldn't have had anything to say about it to us Bammers anyway.
