This is arguably the most important game of Martin's career. It's hard to put such a label on a game this early, but anything but the narrowest possible loss could put a serious crimp in the Vols' hopes of finishing in the top three in the conference, IMHO, the minimum to get in the NCAAs. The loss itself would be damaging enough, but the blow to the team's new-found confidence could be severe enough to cause them to lose another couple down the road that they ought to be "good enough" to win. On the other hand, if they come up with a dominating performance, they will be seen nationally, and will see themselves, in a whole different, i.e., more favorable, light.
