Written on Source: Cuonzo Martin pulls his name out of running for Marquette position:

in response to allvol8:

Allan Houston is very supportive of Cuonzo as well as Bernard King; I trust their judgment more than any of these posters.. any how GBO!

We just got spoiled with Coach Pearl. Great recruiter, good coach, going to Big Dance every year. Getting the most from his team, night in, night out. Now that Pearl is gone, Coach Martin will do. He will need to make the Big Dance in the next three years and go far into it.

in response to tenacvol#248890:

Pay the man. He has earned a nice new contract. I had my doubts if he was the right guy earlier in the season but he has proved me wrong as can be. Sorry Coach for doubting you.

Written on Lady Vols outfielder Melissa Davin to miss rest of season:

in response to CalifLadyVolFan:

We are holding out hope that Melissa will heal up by WCWS. I flew into Knoxville tonight and I am attending her Dr appt with her tomorrow. She had a plate and 9 screws placed in her hand which was going to give her the best chance to heal correctly and heal quickly. The earliest that she would be ready was 3 weeks.... 4 weeks was WCWS... Go Lady Vols!!!!

Mike Davin

Written on Updated odds for all of Tennessee's football targets:

in response to GlennFordsFoible:

(This comment was removed by the site staff.)

Here is the bad part, you may be right. If Jones can not win 6 or 7 games next year, then no one will want to come to UT. We will have another below 25 class and the losing will continue.

Written on Updated odds for all of Tennessee's football targets:

in response to orange_eVOLution:

Pathetic article. Why even write it?

For the information, now we know what odds we may be looking at.

Written on Updated odds for all of Tennessee's football targets:

Wow! If we get the 3 that we have the odds on we will still be 12th in the SEC. We may never get to go to a bowl game again.

Written on Dallas Cowboys haven't hired Derek Dooley yet :

in response to VOLS_SEC_RULES:

Reminds me of the ending of the LSU game and the UNC game....just when you think Dooley may have been successful.....wrong!

Best comment of the tread.

We have middle of the pack talent. Yes, we have to.

Written on John Adams: Vols chasing Vanderbilt in recruiting :

James Franklin has shown he is one of the best coaches in coaching and recruiting in the country. I do not know why he was not on the top of our list. I do see BJ doing well, but not as well as JF would had done.

Written on All-American Kelsey Robinson among 4 players transferring from Tennessee volleyball program:

My daughter I went to see the VB team play SC. She finished her HS freshman year and was interested in UT until she saw Coach Patrick temper. Now I don't know if she will ever get to play big time VB, and no I didn't think anything about his temper. He is a hardask and some girls just can’t handle it.

Written on John Adams: Avoiding Oregon would be worse than losing to it:

Just win 6 games so we can go to a bowl, 6 games.

Written on Butch Jones' first Tennessee coaching staff introduced to public:

Recruit, recruit, recruit. They can be the best coaching staff, but you have to recruit like Fulmer to win SEC rings.

Watching the Texas game, I was impressed how well the LV shot the ball. Then this happen, I guess they were too pumped.

Written on Tennessee snaps scoring slump, beats No. 23 Wichita State, 69-60 :

Ok, Skylar needs to ride the bench. His shooting is way off and his D is lacking. Maybe sometime this year he might get his stroke back.

Written on UT men's basketball needs to push the pace to spur its offense :

in response to golfman1975:

Coach Martin took a team picked last in the East and finished tied for 2nd...nearly beat KY. Played 7 games without Maymon and are 4-3...could have have beaten Georgetown who took #1 Indiana in overtime...even though they had a bad offensive night. Miller is out as well...2 bigs with Maymon being he heart of the team with both being impact players. Yeah, you talk already of getting rid of CM. Stokes will develop leaps and bounds this year...he is only supposed to be a freshman this year ya know.... Sell your gosh darn tickets and dont let the door hit you in the butt...I suppose the injuries were CM's fault. Go ahead and say it. Ask Georgetown if they want to play us in Ktown. Bet not. Hope Santa gives you a Christmas tree supository.

"Hope Santa gives you a Christmas tree supository." LOL!!! I bet you waited all year to use that one.

Written on Cincinnati AD: Dave Hart was "first class" throughout process:

He's a winner, and we like winners.

Written on John Adams: Tennessee still a top-20 job ... especially if the price is right :

All it takes is the right coach. With the right coach we will be playing for the east in two years and playing for a NC in four. But remember when we hired Dooley, no one wanted it.

Written on Tennessee players take news of Derek Dooley's firing in stride :

Put a good product of the field and you don't have to worry about being the fall guy.

Written on Dooley: Tyler Bray will be benched if he throws more interceptions:

Hey Dooley, your whole rebuilding would go better if you recruited better.

Written on Tennessee announces new premium tailgate area, Tailgate Tennessee:
