Yeah, well when this team makes the NCAA tournament. . .wait, NIT. . .wait, CBI. . .well, IF this team makes any post season tournament let's see how well they do. It amazes me how many people are talking bad about Pearl when he's the most successful basketball coach in the history of the program. I guess the NCAA touranment isn't an important goal for our basketball program, nor is winning SEC Titles.

The man along with his ENTIRE STAFF is serving a show cause penalty. That's not to be taken to lightly in itself.

Great game. Guys played as a TEAM. Very unselfish players with 6 of them in double figures. Team coming together just in time to make a legit run for an invite to NCAA. I guess that is the cue for westknox, 8letter, doesitmatter, B2R, and all the other geniuses to give their 1/2 cent worth. Team has already surpassed all of the predictions you all gave. Love how the predictions are changing after each game. So easy to sit behind a keyboard and run off at the mouth. Coming from this Vol fan and alumni,IT IS GREAT TO BE A TENNESSEE VOL. GO BIG ORANGE.

Doesn't change what he did, and it's selective punishment. Coach Cal, Jim Calhoun and Jim Tressell did worse and got off lighter, the NCAA was just out to get Pearl, bottom line.

Liked Pearl as much as anyone. However, all he had to say was yes, I messed up. He had to know they would not have asked such a question without having proof. If he would have only been up front from the get go, he would have still been here. He did it to himself.

All nontrolls on here, forgive me for biting the troll bait but just hard at times to sit back and watch someone keep giving the same argument over and over and over and over and over, etc, etc, etc(If you know what I mean) Vols looking good and enjoying evey minute of it. GO VOLS.

I do support the team, but I'm not going to be one of these delusional people who thinks we stand a chance of getting to the NCAA tournament. Yes, Martin can develop talented players, unfortunatly he's not shown he can recruit talented players. Stokes, as of right now, and in any case for any recruiter, was an anomoly, very situational. Yet the other players he's signed are medicore at best, and unless every other known recruiter was wrong about everyone of these kids, they're not going to cut it on an SEC roster. Hustle, playing hard, heart, all that is well and good, but if you don't win championships it's meaningless, and I want him to bring in players that are going to win championships.

I have a feeling once the season is over there will be plenty of talented players wanting to be a part of this team and the style of play he is developing at UT.

Appears to me he does not necessarily have to recruit major star players. Looks like he can develop marginal players just fine, unless you think McRae, Golden, McBee and Richardson have not improved their play in the past 2 months. I say they are 75% better than at the beginning of the season and this is why we are winning now.

Yep. Coach is paving that road of experience that will attract the talent.

With all the uncertainty that the NCAA investigation introduced into the program, along with a new unproven coach at major collegiate level, it was no surprise that Zo would not have a stellar signing class. That being said, I'm interested to see how those players develop. If they were Pearl's recruits, hate to say it, but the development potential would not be as encouraging.

Sincere congratulations to all my Vol friends for your win last night. We stink on the road. UT looks like a team on the rise. Ultimately we were done in by Stokes (who would have looked great in a red and white uniform last night...) and the Porn 'Stache. Until last night I had no idea that Harry Reems could shoot the three ball so well.

But, see, your position on Martin is evolving even if you can't bring yourself to admit it. Before the season started, you said that Martin couldn't recruit OR coach in the SEC. You thought Pearl was a great coach--and I concur in part--but HE didn't develop the players HE recruited as well as Martin has.

Then, just because he he didn't recruit a roster full of super-stars in two recruiting periods before anybody had any idea whether he could coach at this level or not, you concluded that he CAN'T recruit at this level. Just because YOU don't know who all he may be in on doesn't mean he isn't in on ANYBODY any good. He still has this spring's recruiting period to sign another guy or two, and he doesn't NEED that many for next year; next year, the Vols will be loaded! In fact, they will be so loaded that he can probably afford to redshirt a couple of guys so as to have more experience on the 2013-4 team.

After everybody has seen how this season turns out--and even you would have to admit that it has already turned out better than YOU thought it would--he is set up to get some real difference-makers in the fall signing period. Finally, only time will tell whether he spots talent better than everybody else, but he DOES seem to have a good feel for coachable guys who can play in his system, and there are always talented guys who fall through the cracks of the rating system.

All I'm really saying is that a REAL fan would appreciate what is being accomplished NOW and let tomorrow take care of itself. It's not YOUR job that's on the line, it's Martin's, and as long as he is the COACH of UT and you claim to be a FAN of UT, why WOULDN'T you give him your full support?

One reason for the lower than normal attendance was there was a power outage that hit the campus and many heard about it on the radio. According to a UT policeman that I have come to know over the years said he was suprised to see me there. He told me they had announced the outage over the radio and even some stations supposedly had said the game may be postponed if they could not get the power back on. Sure many may have stayed home instead of getting out and having to go back home if the game was postponed.

I was at the game; although half the upper decks behind the goals were empty, there were still a lot of fans in attendance. But the energy level was as usual disappointing. I wonder what AD Hart thinks about the under-achieving fans. I guess this is that same old issue of big-donor money filling the courtside seats...there are no students courtside for the rest of the fans to feed off...there is a section about twenty feet behind the basket which is too far away.

That dude on the mike doing the rapping or whatever must have scared a lot of folks...that was definitely out of place, bless his heart, thanks for the effort...

"Trae Golden scored 13 points and had seven assists, Skylar McBee and Jeronne Maymon each had 12 points, Cam Tatum had 11 points and nine rebounds, and Stokes finished with 10 points."
It is hard to lose when you have this balanced of scoring!

Bubba_Knows writes:

I have said it before. The reason why Tatum is in the game is to get over the slump. When Tatum is playing well, this is a different team. And 11 points and 9 rebounds makes the team MUCH better! Also, for those of you that ragged McBee, he may be the best Soph walk-on I've ever seen. While he may not be the most talented, the guy has game!

Oh, man! I was back home in K'ville for Christmas and went to the Citadel game. I couldn't believe what I was hearing when that guy started up! Dang! K'ville isn't Detroit or East LA. Maybe it's just because I'm an old guy and old-school, but I can't STAND those NBA-style player intros, and REALLY hate to hear them at my alma mater.

And so because you worry about the future of the program, despite the fact that you have already been proven to be wrong about how you saw them before the season, you see no reason to support the team NOW. Some fan you are.

At the beginning of league play I was convinced this team would end up below .500 in the league as well as with their overall record. This wasn't something I wanted, it was just my prediction. I've been a Vol fan since before Len Kozmoski (sic) was playing center. The last thing I would ever want is for this team to fail.

Regardless what Westknx or anyone thought would happen, or will happen in the future, they need to give this team their fuull support for no other reason than - THEY HAVE EARNED IT! If they can't do that they should really reconsider calling themselves Vols fans altogether.

They did put it out on GoVols247...it's ridiculous to "pay" for this site. One more reason to HATE the KNS. Am I wrong? Did I miss the report somewhere other than 247?

No--thats where I found it also. And I feel the same way---no way am I paying for that kind of info.

Dang, what's up with all this negativity. Damn good game and good coaching. This team really is playing together and feeding off each other. Now let's take it one game at a time, take that swagger and confidence on the road and win one in Alabama. Anytime we win in Alabama it's a good thing.

Go Vols, keep playing hard, keep your head about you and good things will come your way.

I have had a problem with this guy from the get go. Makes me think of a mix between a rap concert and a WWF wrestling match. One game I saw him loosening up before he announced the starting line up. What a doofus. Have season tickets (no, I am 16 rows up in the upper deck, so I am not one of the senior citizens although I have earned my AARP card lol) and we tend to be louder up there than they are courtside. Until they get the students at least behind each goal, the most noise will be down at the corner and behind one goal. I would love to see the student section be the first 5 or 6 rows around the bottom and behind each goal. Believe you would see more students come out and also see more people be drawn into the action. Dont see that happening, too much money involved there. Oh well, will continue to pull and yell for the VOLS. Proud to be an ole aggie alumni. IT IS GREAT TO BE A TENNESSEE VOL. GO BIG ORANGE.

While I predicted a home win for the Vols yesterday as Ark has not won a road game the entire year, the second half was more indicative of these two teams. UT won 30-28 in the second half which is a much better barometer. Ut scored 47 points in the first half and that will not happen often for this limited team. It was a good win, but I wouldnt look at final scores too much. Once again UT can play vs teams teams with no inside size, and Ark is a skinny team right now. When Ut faces teams with true Bigs they cant stop them. Still a decent win, but be honest, every team on the schedule has beaten Arkansas at home this year. Still say UT drops 3 of the last 5 as Bama,LSU and Vandy are too big inside for the Vols.

Doesn't Florida have "true bigs?"

Because of the NCAA's poor selection process, I believe there's zero chance of TN making the tournament, short of winning the SEC Tournament but there are many reasons to like Tennessee's chances at moving up the SEC standings with 2nd not out of the question given Florida's schedule:

1. Likely losses to KY by other teams near the top:
KY vs. Miss
KY @ Miss
KY vs. Vandy
KY @ FL
2. Games between other teams near the top:
Vandy @ Miss
FL @ Vandy
3. Away games of other teams near the top:
Vandy @ Miss, GA, KY, & TN
FL @ Ark, GA, Vandy
MSU @ Aub, AL, SC
Miss @ KY, TN, Ark
4. Alabama suspensions, if still in place
5. TN schedule:
@ AL (normally tough but suspensions could help?)
Miss (@ home)
@ SC (winnable)
@ LSU (tougher road game)
Vandy (@ home)

in response to westknoxrepub:

1. Stokes recruiting process was started by Pearl. There's no indication had he never been contacted by Pearl he would have even considered Tennessee.

2. His availability was only due to a bad ruling by the TSSAA. Had he been able to play his Senior year of high school, teams like Kentucky and Memphis would have had scholarships available for him and might have factored into his decision, whereas in December neither team had a scholarship.

3. He's one of eight players Martin has signed, and the only one who is an SEC calibur player. 1 for 8 is not going to win SEC Championships.

He could have always waited to go to one of his other top choices if he didn't think UT was a very good choice for him. He might very have gone to another place if Martin hadn't been prescient enough to hold out a scholly for him. But, even though we had the scholly available for him, he wouldn't have come here if he didn't really like Martin to be his coach. Martin called him and met him and sold him on this program, and Martin sealed the deal. And THAT is the bottom line.

VolunteerLifer writes:

in response to westknoxrepub:

Yeah, if he had other coaches players, same old story, what about his players? Why does Chievous have a scholarship? Why does Washpun have a scholarship? Why does Richardson have a scholarship? You could say if he had Roy Williams players or Coach K's players, what would he do with them. He doesn't, he has Stokes next year and he still hasn't recruited a point guard. Year after next, when Stokes is gone, then what?

How many times do we have to go over this recruiting stuff for you? We've shown you time and again how the recruiting has been very good given the situation Martin inherited. But you simply ignore the obvious. But the best evidence that you are working on an agenda other than simply being a UT fan is your stance on Richardson. To say he has been a bad or mediocre recruit when the contrary evidence is directly in your face destroys your credibility more than we ever could. Richardson has already established himself as a key player on this team as a FRESHMAN. To say that he should not have a scholarship is so preposterous we should all just start ignoring you from now on.

From 2/17 ESPN Bubble Watch:

Meanwhile, speaking of Tennessee ... OK, OK, the Volunteers aren't on the bubble. Frankly, they aren't anywhere close. But at 6-5 in the SEC, with a sweep of Florida and a win over UConn, it is interesting to think about what could happen if the Vols were to win out the rest of the way. Given their schedule (at Alabama, vs. Ole Miss, at South Carolina, at LSU, vs. Vanderbilt) and how well this team is playing lately, it's certainly a possibility. That would put them at 19-12 and 11-5 in the SEC with four top-50 wins and ... all right, now we're just getting Tennessee fans' hopes up. The Watch apologizes. But either way, the fact this possibility, remote as it is, even exists, is a testament to the impressive job Cuonzo Martin has done repairing the Bruce Pearl wreckage in the new coach's first season.

WHERE ARE THE FANS? The team is playing great, we need a strong finish for a shot at the dance. There is no excuse for only 16,000 showing up (if there were even that many actually there). It's frustrating seeing so many open seats. All the people that showed up over the past 5 years need to get to the games and get us back to a packed house - show the team you care! Go Vols!

IV, we have some unfortunate scheduling with 8p Wednesday night games. On a good night I'm lucky to get home after the game by 11p. That may not seem late, but 5a comes pretty early. I'm sure there are other contributing factors - e.g. "church night" - but I am hopeful that fans will realize this is a hard working and fun to watch team and will come out for these last two home games.

Go Vols!

"Not going to cut it on an SEC roster..? Every one who can count stars at the end of a sentence in a recruiting update thinks he's an expert. Recruits are evaluated on their development and performance in the program----not by the ramblings of some jag-off poster before they've played a minute. Nobody thought that Coach Pearl had the rosters to knock off #1 teams, win the conference, or get to the Elite Eight. And they were wrong. Takes delusional to know delusional.

I call BS. Selective punishment? If Pearl really believed that an NCAA investigator was going accept that he didn't know the location of the pic --- his own house --- he deserves the firing and show cause. Don't start with the "Woe is me, they're picking on Bruce" whine. Doesn't matter whether his incidents were ignorance or arrogance, he deserves at least what he got, and he deserves not one bit of support from his formerly loyal fans. Just like Fulmer cashed in his '98 NC capital, Pearl cashed in his 6-in-a-row NCAA cameos capital.

And I still say that if your standard is big show appearances, you're setting your goals way too low. With all of the talent that Pearl blew through TBA, Pearl should have garnered at least one and maybe two Final 4/Champ game appearances. Instead we see schools like Butler and VCU with real coaches and rosters of no-name players making the big game.

But all you continue to pump is his 6-in-a-row cameos! Two years one game, one year two games, two years three games, and one year four games. Not exactly sparkling successes. How many SEC Championships did Pearl pull down?

See, the thing with people like WKR is that they can't EVER admit that they were wrong. Everything they think about anything is taken as some eternal immutable PRINCIPLE they have to defend to the death. They have internalized the idea that it is WEAK to admit error or to apologize for ANYTHING. Their thinking never evolves upon receiving new or different info that contradicts whatever they already believe. That is why they can't actually DISCUSS anything; they only issue manifestos. Everything they say becomes increasingly irrelevant because, as far as they are concerned, nothing ever changes. If they should come to the shattering realization that they might have been wrong, they will just stop talking about the subject rather than admit that somebody might know something they don't.

Duke had the usual help from their tame refs. As the game went on and Duke was still down by double digits late into the second half, Duke employed its usual last-ditch defense; get all the other team's main guys fouled out. Now there is no doubt that NC State tried to play physical ball against Duke, but when you do that, you can COUNT on getting called for fouls that aren't called on Duke when THEY get physical. Just the way it is at Cameron Indoor. SEC fans can relate, since it is the same thing that happens at Rupp Arena.

Thanks for the assist, John. I didn't know who their bigs were and sizes exactly, but I did know they had a few good bigs. They must have if they are a true top ten team.

Quinton Chievous is 3 inches shorter and about 50 lbs lighter than Stokes. Pretty hard to believe he would get in an actual fight with Stokes. Can you provide the basis for your assertion? source?

Your confidence in this team is outstanding. Go to another website where your anti-UT sentiments will be more appreciated. Oh wait, even fans from other websites have bragged on UT's recent performances. Even some Kentucky and Vandy fans have given us some compliments. All of this proves that yes, indeed there are trolls, but some people are even lower than trolls. I'll call them troller-trash, for lack of anything better. I couldn't think of anything worse.

Weird glitch that the comments from yesterday's article are attached to this one about Cam...?

Also, can something be done about the SEC Digital Network video covering up part of a couple paragraphs of every article?

Yeah that Digital Video glitch is annoying. But to facilitate reading the text written over it, just click above it hold it and bring it down past the video. That will highlight the text over the video so you can read it much easier.

Stupid formatting error. C'mon KNS, try harder.

GBO!
