Martin said the first half against NC State was painful. I say it was pitiful. Martin don't worry about hurting their feelings, tell it like it is. Hart won't have hurt feelings when he fires you for the pitiful job (painful job) you are doing this year so far.

Yep, this is the year. If the Vols can't make an NCAA run with the talent on this team, when will they?

Hart may not make a move at all, and if he doesn't get Pearl and Tony Jones back I doubt firing Martin will make much difference. There's never been a line of top coaches interested in the Vols hoops job, which is why losing one of the top coaches in the college game hurt so much. At least we will know if the brain trust (ha ha) even cares about basketball.
