How will TN score next year under Martin? We cannot score this year. Not enough easy looks.

I was actually going to compare the 2 before I read the article. Surprised me when it happened in article. They both have had their offensive talent wasted on underachieving teams. It's even more surprising that Mcrae and Houston are compared. Houston never missed a minute from the time he arrived. Jordan didn't start until half way thru his junior year?????? Jordan must be doing something right to be compared to Houston.
I don't think he is quite as good , but if you're close that's a pretty good compliment. McRae was runner up for pre season player of year voting, THOUGH, 2nd in SEC scoring right now - pretty strong to be playing on a defensive team.


He would have played and shot the ball for 4 years, but the team probably would have been even worse.

remember the days they used to give out coupons for chicken sandwiches when the Vols scored 100 points? now we can't reach 20 points in a half....

Of course the Gators were locked in on defense. When the other team is as predictable as Tennessee is, and when the 3- point shots don't fall early, the rest is pretty easy. Martin has never made any halftime adjustments, well at least none that worked.
