OK BBALL, let me reword it. The Vols have never been successful past the 2nd round. They have never been to a championship game, never a final four never even an elite eight, never. You look at the history of the NCAA tournament and I bet you'll see schools you didn't even know existed that has made the final four but not the Vols.

G'day.

So?

Before 1994, Florida had never won an SEC championship in football or basketball much less an NC.
Since then they have won 4 NCs and a boatload of SECs.

Past returns are not indicative of future performance.

The Elite 8's, final 4's and hopefully National Championships are comming in the near future (in or during the next 10 years if Bruce stays at UT). GO VOLS!

i didnt compare them to unc, i was responding to someone who did. in five years, bruce will probably have 4 or 5 mcdonalds all americans on this ut team. and if you believe any of these kids go to class five days a week, whether it be on the unc team or the ut team, you are mistaken. ironically enough, ty lawson, carolinas point guard, was an aau teamate of bobby maze. kevin durant was also on that team. so bruce is dipping into the right talent pool. maze is going to be special. chism has to stop underachieving, and someone please stop tatum from hoisting a three everytime he gets the ball. Tennessee will still walk away with the sec, hopefully. go vols, and of course, go heels

Well said. I would love to see a home and away series in the pre-season with either N.C. or Duke. We would probally lose, but I would love to see it anyway. That is how you are going to get the best players out of high school is competing with the best at the college level. It is not going to happen over night. Hopefully, we will play NC in the eilite 8 or better this year. That would be a fun game to watch. GO VOLS!

Good job Bruce. A win is a win. We're young, going through some growing pains. I'd rather start slow and finish strong, rather than start fast and run out of gas.

Bruce certainly was right about Williams in the middle wasn't he? And on the nepotism thing, doesn't Coach's son play for him? If that's no relations I don't know what is? But so what! Let's do what the Democrats do, when they break the rules, they just change them.

Typical Memphis State education. It's easy to see why poverty is so rampant in "The M"

Wrong Irwin, not a Memphis State education. I can tell you this, my school is rated far above UT academically by every major publication. I'm sure Obama Bin Laden would have a better chance of being elected Pope than you would have being accepted where I attend school. You paranoid people think everybody that slams you is from Memphis? You wouldn't know a clue if it walked up to you, bit you on the rear, and announced 'I AM A CLUE!!' You people are a hoot. You wonder why people come to this board and trash the Vols? Because some of your fellow Vol fans are the most obnoxious, ignorant and offensive people on this planet. They draw retaliation to your boards. I visit many message boards and every rival of UT there are the Vol fans talking trash on thier boards. Some of them seriously need a life. I have seen individual Vol fans make between 15-20 posts taking their lame-brained trash in one day.

Way to go Tyler. I've watched you since you were a freshman at GCHS. There was never a doubt you could do this! P-town is proud of you!

Wow, an impressive 18 point win over N.C. Ashville. That win is right up there with that 10 point rout of Middle Tennessee State University. It looks like Tennessee may keep that #10 ranking for another week. Two weeks, that would double the amount of time The Dolls spent ranked #1 last year, well in their entire history for that matter. Speaking of history maybe one day UT will get past the 2nd round in the NCAA tournament, maybe but doubtful.

:)

Why do you even have "vol" as part of your screen name? At least "overatedvols's" screen name CONTAINS his disdain. You are just a troll wearing (part of) a name you don't deserve.

UNC had three days off before playing Ash. Plus the previous game was at home in the afternoon. UT had two days after a late game away.

Stop making excuses please.

Wow! Such venom over 1 game. I don't think anyone expects UT to beat UNC. So why the big comparison? I believe UNC returns pretty much intact. UT has returning players, but this team is completely different from last year. It's too early to judge them as they are still putting their chemistry together. I believe CBP will have them playing well and it will be fun to watch them grow as a team. So shut up, hop on, and enjoy the ride!

smokeyvol1 writes:

Why must some of you feel a need to compare our win to NC's win over UNCA? NC at this point are in a league of there on. CBP pulled Tyler right after he got his triple double when we were ahead by 24. It was not a well played game up till that point but we were pulling away. They were able to only make up six points the rest of the way against the end of our bench. Most people on here said we would struggle early in the season and we have in ONE game. If you still feel the need to be negative about this very young team then please find another place to post your phooey!

Your post demonstrates what a simpleton you are and that you don't understand the simple meaning of this handle John. I think perhaps aliens zapped you with a stupidity ray, twice.

I see the tennessee trash has invaded the memphis CA website like they did all last season.

I will say the vol fans are unique but unique in this case is not good. No other school does the kind of trash talking you guys do. I haven't figured it out. Why is there so many of these types that support this one school. No other school is close. Still, it's what gives Tenn. a bad name everywhere except in the East Tenn. area and with former students. Otherwise not many like the vols and their fans are always the reason why.

Now on to good news. Matt Simpkins a 6'9" forward has been cleared to play by the ncaa. We have been waiting for quite a while for this to happen. He joins the team today. He'll be behind due to missing the season up until now but he's a very welcome addition bringing size to that position which we need badly. Still waiting on Angel Garcia to be cleared. Hopefully that will come soon. Tigers will be good by the end of the season and hopefully long before.

Great fans, complaining about an 18 point victory. Unbelievable. If you can schedule all those cupcakes I wouldn't complain about margin of victory. Vols are 6-1, played 7 games and all but 2 were cupcakes. Look like you have a couple of legit games coming up followed by 2 more cupcakes and then a normal schedule. I think your won lost record will begin to look more realistic. Do the Tigers a favor and don't lose at home till we come to town. We know that Gonzaga is better but try hard in that game. Hit em in the face some more, knock em down. You can do it.
