TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The sour ending to the regular season, losing at Ole Miss with a less than 100 percent effort, is over with. Senior forward JaMychal Green said the team was down and dejected after the loss on the road Saturday, but starting with what he labeled an intense practice on Monday, the team gets a second chance to start over. Against South Carolina on Thursday, Tide coach Anthony Grant will preach the importance of a fresh start, a chance to turn the page on a rocky regular season.

“This time of the year, it’s a new season,” Grant said. “It’s the postseason. It’s a fresh start for everybody.”
