Written on Mike Strange: This time, it's not Year Zero at Tennessee:

in response to BIVOLAR_BEARE:

The year zero Dooley emphatically pointed to (so not to be judged) was arguably his best season as HC.

I don't think arguably... I think by default.

Written on What do you think about the Vols' gray uniform?:

So.... What's next?

Written on GoVols247: Linebacker Bryant commits to Tennessee:

in response to voloffaith:

Thought I remember him stating he would announce at a camp in Oregon. Read between the lines and looks shaky for Vols to get him. Anyway he still hasn't announced so all is still on the table . Congrats on the LB from Alabama.

Do you all really think Dillion Bates would not come to Tennessee? Everything I have heard says he is a virtual lock.

Written on Ivy Renfroe provides relief for Lady Vols, 3-2 :

What's wrong with our pitching? I mean they have struggled through every at bat...every single at bat...this seris.

Written on Lane Kiffin, USC strive for drama-free 2013:

Well he went 7-6 last year with a Heisman Trophy candidate as QB... In a pretty weak PAC-12... He doesn't have any of that going for him this year...well except he has Tee.

Written on Tyler Bray has moved beyond 'stupid mistakes' at Tennessee:

Well OJ also made mistakes and he turned out OK....

Written on Lady Vols to host NCAA softball regional, will host super regional if they advance:

in response to volman2008:

what has happened to Madison SHIPMAM,SHE IS 0 FOR MAY.She is not seeing the ball.

Chelsea Thomas happened to her.

Written on Lady Vols fall to Thomas, Missouri in SEC semifinals, 3-0:

But I will add... Ivy and Ellen are better looking than most of those other pitchers... So at least we have that... Maybe they can marry someone like Matt Cain or Tim Linsecum and have a whole slew of great pitchers to help the softball and baseball teams here at UT. I sort of slipped off into fantasy land there.

Written on Lady Vols fall to Thomas, Missouri in SEC semifinals, 3-0:

MEANWHILE BACK IN SOFTBALL..... It just looks like to me Tennessee doesn't have the great knockout pitcher they need....I mean they have two good ones...but it takes one great one... That is the equation that has worked for just about everyone... They have put together a great offensive line-up... Two of which are up for National Player of the year honors.... But this game is predicated on pitching...one great pitcher can trump all of that... And has... Twice in a week...if this team had Chelsea Thomas to go along with this awesome hitting they would be unstoppable.... But... They don't. So they will be fortunate to get to Oklahoma City. I can't believe Ralph said they had won 20 out of their last 24... when they had lost 4 out of their last six... Including being shutout twice... No hit once....and giving up 12 runs in a time shortened game.... Wow Ralph that's a great spin job! Sorta like... "Well other than that...how did you like the rest of the play Mrs. Lincoln?"

Written on With SEC regular-season title on the line, Lady Vols run out of time :

Hang in there snow pea... All we need to do is believe...and pitch and hit and field...

Written on With SEC regular-season title on the line, Lady Vols run out of time :

in response to snowpeapod#263184:

When you play great ball all season and then drop 3 out of your last 4 games you are lucky to finish second in the SEC. I will always be a Lady Vol fan but this appeared to be one of the biggest choke's of all time. Let's regroup and win the tournament.

You know there is no way that is gonna happen now. It's like they got rusty during the big layoff... This team was mercy ruling everyone two weeks ago...the pilot lights out... And it doesn't look like there is anyway to relight the boiler.

Written on With SEC regular-season title on the line, Lady Vols run out of time :

Ran out of time? They had plenty of time last night. Where did the pitching go.

Written on Lady Vols no-hit before bouncing back in Game 2 of doubleheader:

Unbelievable CHOKE JOB by Lady Vols. Just gave up an SEC title...justed pi$$'d it away...with a five run lead?!?!? A very WEEKLY weekend for Lady Vols.

Written on Farragut's Jordan Cooper earns save as Middle Tennessee tops Vols, 7-6:

If we can't do any better than this... I say drop the program.

Written on MTSU fired up against Vols, 11-5:

coach I'm still behind you... But losing to Middle is a disgrace...you gotta get more out of these guys...cowboy up coach.

Written on End to Lady Vols' season doesn't feel good:

in response to mjc66:

Do you mean by point guard not being able to defend against other point guards? Possibly a valid point although I don't think everything was her fault.

But, if you were saying Ms. Massengale isn't a good point guard on the offensive side, didn't you read the article that said the team matched their scoring average from the rest of the year?

This game was lost (unfortunately) by a not-so-solid defensive effort. And, to lay that blame solely on Ms. Massengale is quite wrong. This was a team effort and the loss should be spread equally across all players.

No this loss was a complete team effort... From the coach down...

But Ariel is slow...slower than anybody she plays...she is not a bad basketball player... She is not a bad athlete... But she's slow...

Written on Louisville stops Lady Vols' run to Final Four, 86-78:

We invented the woman's game and forgot how to play it.

Written on Louisville stops Lady Vols' run to Final Four, 86-78:

What RUN? Had the opportunity of a lifetime... And didn't take advantage. Big time players step up in these situations.....the Lady Vols are a nice little team... And had a nice little season... They have a nice little coach... Nothing big time about this program anymore... This may be as close as we ever get to the Final Four again.

Written on Baylor not the only ones 'stunned' by upset:

The Loiusville coach should have patted Kim on the Butt at the end of the game... That would have made the whole day priceless!

Written on Baylor not the only ones 'stunned' by upset:

mulkey should be madder at her big stud girl who laid the biggest Easter Egg in History.... griner looked listless and just didn't bring it... You want to point fingers in a one point loss... Look at your all american who scored about 18 less than her average...I mean...Brittany was supposed to be the player that was in the process of changing the women's game... Maybe she didn't need to change it... Maybe she just needed to win it.

Written on Baylor not the only ones 'stunned' by upset:

griner did get all ball on that last foul... Then fouled the phooey out of her with her body... How can mulkey whine about officiating in this game... It was bad alright... But not Louisville's way... They called 10 more fouls on Louisville. And honestly I'm surprised they called a foul on that last play... What a big crybaby...then she pulls her jacket off...and just about gives us all a show... And does the officials t her up like they did the other coach? Nope. What a whiner.....Griner and Whiner.

Written on Lady Vols feeling at home in regional, advance to play Louisville:

The player that was supposed to have changed the game... Will finish with half the NCAA titles that Candice Parker had... And will probably not be the first player selected in the draft...I would pick Della Don...

Written on Lady Vols feeling at home in regional, advance to play Louisville:

in response to vol98champ:

As Jack Buck once said, I can't believe what I just saw". No, I'm not talking about the Baylor loss. I'm talking about the officiating.

I agree and why didn't they "T" up mulkey for that striptease deal... That poor Louisville team beat Baylor, the officiating crew, and evidently the NCAA... That was the most one sided game I ever saw called... 24-14 on fouls...

Written on Offseason could be time to evaluate Cuonzo Martin's contract:

in response to johnlg00:

I could go along with that. It might not hurt to bump up the bonuses for making the post-season and WINNING GAMES then. If he succeeds at that, he gets more money and the fans can feel they got their money's worth, but the school isn't really on the hook for a lot more money, since the school's tournament take would also be higher.

Yeah give him a$100,000 bonus for every post season game he wins... We won't have to pay much.

Written on Offseason could be time to evaluate Cuonzo Martin's contract:

I was wondering when this would come up. CCM has done just enough not be fired. But has really not done any more than that...for anyone that thinks he has... Your understanding of what is important in basketball is in LaLa land. He should have gotten both of these teams in the Dance... He did not... If he had done that the attendance would have been even better (Duh). He has recruited ok...but he is still behind about half the conference...in a weak sec... Wake up people.

Written on Offseason could be time to evaluate Cuonzo Martin's contract:

UT needs to leave contract as it is no extension...no raise.... If CCM and his agent doesn't like those terms... He can take one of those many coaching offers he's getting... I think Hart is to shrewd and we are way to financially strapped to reward what we have seen thus far out of this staff.

Written on Former UT running backs coach Jay Graham will make $275,000 at Florida State:

Goofy Randy Sanders...that's really all I have to say.

Written on Former Lady Vol Kellie Harper fired as N.C. State's coach:

She's still a pretty girl.

Written on Time was needed for Vols to build chemistry without Jeronne Maymon:

I don't see how not having maymon for the whole year affected their ability to win games in March... And what is CCM talking about when he says that wasn't talked about enough? They didn't get it done... the NCAA tourn. is full of mid major programs that did get it done... And coaches that get the very best out of their players... That's why we are here with more excuses than wins... CCM doesn't need to worry about excuses and what is or isn't being talked about...he needs to learn how and when to use a zone defense...

Written on Mike Strange: In many ways, things seem same after Cunozo Martin's second season :

We will learn a lot about Dave Hart from this offseason... The very smart move on his part is to publicly brag on CCM..which he has done... but offer no raise or contract extension... Which he hasn't done to this point. We are stuck with our coach at least thru this next season... But if it ends like all of the other seasons that CCM has coached... With a close but no cigar.... Then it will be much easier to make a move...and hey maybe he leaves on his own because he doesn't feel he is greeting in love money wise. I think he is the second lowest paid coach in the conference.

Written on Mike Strange: In many ways, things seem same after Cunozo Martin's second season :

Your on the nose here Mike. This is a trend. Biggest problem is they can get up for big games...but not important games. And they can't win in tournaments. Tough to make much hay when you can't do that.

Written on Back for pro day, 'humbled' Da'Rick Rogers says he wants to rebuild bridge to UT:

in response to apostolicman:

Why don't you say the same thing about Tyler Bray, another notable weed head ans salesman

OK... "Hey Tyler... Why don't you throw another beer bottle at that girls car...this time while she's looking... Then she can kick your stupid A." how's that A-man?

Written on Back for pro day, 'humbled' Da'Rick Rogers says he wants to rebuild bridge to UT:

Hey Da'rick... Why don't you stay in town long enough for the KPD guys to get another shot at you? Why don't you go up to one of them and kick him and then not run off this time. That ought to be interesting.

Written on Season ends for Vols in NIT opener, 75-67:

Seriously... This is not going to get better. This was the year to make hay not excuses. We have now finished the last to seasons with losses to MTSU and Mercer. Com'on Hart... Is that what we want? Why don't you send a message big boy? That we play for real up here... Send this guy back to what ever simple minded, soft-sided, pasifier sucking place he came from and bring Bruce back.

Written on Season ends for Vols in NIT opener, 75-67:

Why did our AD not explain to our dimwitted coach... And it's obvious now that he don't freakin get it... That he needed to come out and blow this team out...send a message to the NCAA that we did belong.... Because it should be obvious to everyone on the planet that w don't belong anywhere. SUNDAY WAS EMOTIONALLY DRAINING? ARE YOU KIDDING ME CUONZO?!?!? ARE WE TALKING MEN OR LITTLE GIRLS!!!! You got OUTCOACHED, outplayed, outclassed, outprided, out everythinged. and guess what! The SEC will be better next year...what will be your excuse then! This is stupid. Why don't you stupid media guys stand up and tell it like it is... Instead of being to afraid to call CUONZO out? This is the second year of this... And when is it ever going to gt better? Never... Not with this coaching staff.

Written on Lady Vols know they need to improve defense heading into NCAA tournament:

A&M manhandled UK in the paint today... We just won't go inside.

Written on Texas A&M takes one away from Lady Vols in final minute, 66-62:

You just can't blow a 10 point second half lead... Not at this level. This team quit after the A&M game... Looked lost at KY... Was lackluster yesterday and today wasted a career performance by Spani. They have been pretty doggoned average since cutting those nets down last week.

Written on Jarnell Stokes burns midnight oil to shoot straight at free-throw line :

Gosh...how long did it take to actually hit 100?

Written on Lady Vols turned over and around by Kentucky's pressure, 78-65:

in response to emailnodata:

What planet am I on??

Well, not yours...because your head is stuck up Uranus.

Email... I'm wondering which player's mother you are? But hey I like your style! Love the UR-anus reference!

Written on John Adams: Night and day difference in last two Lady Vols' games :

Well..they all admitted they didn't bring it... Good thing they won Thursday...and good thing they got help last week... You and I don't have the same definition of pack it in... I think 19 turnovers in one half is pretty much packing it in...they didn't play hard...they got ran out of the gym... I mean...it was one miss pass and take away after another... Seriously... I'm all for em... Root for em...but the effort wasn't there tonite...and I mean dang if it was...then we got more problems than this.

Written on John Adams: Night and day difference in last two Lady Vols' games :

I don't appreciate the effort... There wasn't any... They cut the nets down Thursday night and didn't show up today... I love em but...Im not proud of the way they played today. Kentucky sent a message... Tennessee looked more like a team that could lose to Chattanooga and Missouri than a top ten team today.

Written on Tennessee, Kentucky earn top seeds in SEC bracket:

Is that STUPID group of Refs going to be at the tournament.

Written on Georgia had gameplan for limiting Jarnell Stokes :

Golden... Golden is the key. If he plays like he played Saturday it doesn't matter what stokes does.

Written on Lady Vols turned over and around by Kentucky's pressure, 78-65:

The lady vols pulled a trae golden today... That being said...that was the worst call I've ever seen at the end of the half... If that was a logical call they could have actually called another foul on the person guarding the shot...and had two different players shoot free throws for a possible five point play... Holly should have had a come apart right there...

Written on Mike Strange: Vols' tournament hopes derailed:

It was golden... Stokes is not going to get the ball down low unless trae is doing his thing... They will just clamp down on him... It was all golden in this one. No one can expect to win when their most important player plays this poorly...

Written on Mike Strange: Vols' tournament hopes derailed:

This is why we have a problem with Coach Martin. During that streak his team could have beaten anyone in the country... And he brackets that streak with unexplainable loses to a team that blew a 17 point second half lead to Vandy... He has to get golden to play...every game..He has to. And he just didn't not score he played horrible...goofy passes....stupid fouls....turnovers...

Written on Tennessee rides momentum of win streak to Georgia :

Trae golden just help usher the vols out of the NCAA... What at freakin loser! What a freakin loser!
