We didn't realize that the Ernie & Bernie days were the golden age of UT basketball. Until we get rid of our present coach, they will never return.

Pearl was the closest thing we've had to Mears. Both were promoters of the game & the program. No one else has come close to being that in the history of the sport on The Hill.

I'm so glad that Pearl got the top Vol legends actively involved in the program again and CCM is continuing the practice. It really does help promote the program and remind people of better days when things aren't going so well. I'm over CCM but will continue to support the program. Like a lot of you, I'd love to have Pearl back but I don't think it will happen. There are plenty of other good candidates that would relish the job and do well. Go Vols!

Seth Davis is an excellent analyst. There is no other term that fits this team better than "disappointing", IMHO. That doesn't mean it never will live up to its promise, but I agree that the A&M loss was an ICU-worthy wound. The only thing the Vols can gain from tonight's game is to wash some of the bad A&M taste out of their mouths and get in a proper frame of mind to challenge an angry, wounded but fiercely talented UK team at their place. No pressure, guys! It's all up to you; if you ever wanted to be thought of as "big-time", you have to EARN it, starting now with no false steps.
