Statement from UT

After receiving Monday's COVID-19 test results, the Tennessee men's basketball program is extending its pause on team activities.
 
The Volunteers will not travel to Indianapolis for next week's Jimmy V Classic, where they were scheduled to face top-ranked Gonzaga. Tennessee also will not play at Notre Dame on Dec. 4—a game that had been reported but was never officially announced due to the contract not yet being finalized.
 
Barring additional setbacks, the program aims to return to action on Saturday, Dec. 5, with its first game currently set for Dec. 12 against Cincinnati at Thompson-Boling Arena.
 

Well, there goes most of our non-conference SOS. Hope the selection committee takes these things into account this March.

On the down side...he got beat by Pruitts Vols. The Buckeyes played about as bad a game as they could possibly play and still beat Indiana. This crap happens all the time. A coach has one good year and now he is Rockne. Let him win a BIG title before anointing him. That would mean something. Last year it was the Minnesota coach. How's he doing consistency wise? Same with Freeze. He beat Bama twice. That's all he did. Still wasn't good enough to win an SECw or SEC title. Plus came close to getting them the death penalty. Overall, Cutcliffe did better during his Eli years without the probation.

So Saban or Dabo or bust, then. Maybe Lincoln Reilly?

You want someone who consistently wins P5 conference titles, those are your choices. Good luck.

The thought of attending a home game on Dec 19 is crazy to me.

I'd bet even money that it won't get played, period. It's not like there are postseason implications for either team.
6  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: UT-Vandy postponed on: November 24, 2020, 01:36:35 EST
Apparently not due to Covid, but to "facilitate the rescheduling of other games".

I'm far from upset about it.
7  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: It's a special kind of STUPID to suggest firing a CFB during his 3rd season.... on: November 23, 2020, 08:31:25 EST
That's where I'm at. I've reached full-fledged dontgiveadamn status.

I do know that we've gone 0 for our last 4 while shopping in the clearance aisle. You'd think the powers that be would have learned their lesson by now, but I doubt it. If they even let Pruitt go this year (and I doubt they will), I fully expect them to slide that 5 year, $11M offer sheet across the table to some career assistant or Sun Belt coach, and them give him a big raise and extension the first time he goes 6-6. It's UT, and This Is The Way©️.

Again, Tom Allen fits all the criteria we should be looking for, and he's done it cleanly (as far as we know) to boot.

Kiffin was/is a good coach, but dang what a staff he had here.

I wouldn't be so up for canning Pruitt now if there wasn't someone available and, if you believe the chatter, willing to come here (Freeze).  I don't want us to fire him without someone already lined up.. because it wouldn't surprise me one bit for us to hire someone even worse.

I'd prefer we not hire Freeze. Too much baggage. And it's not just EscortGate- he was running a shady program at OM and everyone knows it.

That said, I just don't care anymore. This team has broken me. Just hire someone who can get the job done, baggage be damned. Freeze? Sure. Urban? Do it. Is Dennis Erikson still available? Can Bashar al-Assad coach football? Fly 'em in for an interview. I just want to win again.

BTW- big man Jabari Smith, whom we wanted badly, just signed with AU last week (what fortuitous timing!). If he's now having second thoughts, I'm sure it would be pretty easy to get an NCAA waiver to release him from his LOI.
10  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Is there such a thing as reverse recruiting? on: November 23, 2020, 02:37:10 EST
Can't believe he'd want to put off those NFL millions for another year anyway.
11  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Well lookie here. on: November 23, 2020, 12:26:51 EST
Most folks will take the Final Four in exchange.

Yeah, interesting that the writing has been on the wall for Auburn for the past three years, but they wait until right before a season where they lose their top 6 scorers and probably weren't going to the dance anyway (if the dance even happens at all).

I doubt the NCAA just accepts this as "time served" and moves on.

And LSU's next.

50 years old, so he can coach another 20 years or more. Successful rebuild at a P5 program. No big name P5 alma mater to ever “call him home”. Experience as an assistant in the SEC. No record of improprieties. His players love him.

We could do a lot worse.

15  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Game Thread: Auburn on: November 22, 2020, 03:56:59 EST
5 games ago, we had the longest active winning streak in CFB. Now we're about lose 5 in a row for the first time in program history. Not even Dooley or Butch managed to pull that off.

17  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Game Thread: Auburn on: November 22, 2020, 02:49:14 EST
Over/under for UT total offense in the 2nd half?

I'll go with 50 yards (and zero points, natch).
18  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Game Thread: Auburn on: November 22, 2020, 02:46:36 EST
That whole last series was just a master class in clock management.
19  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: Game Thread: Auburn on: November 22, 2020, 02:16:14 EST
Looking all too familiar. Gus just now figuring out that we can't/won't throw downfield. They'll start stacking the box and shut us down from here on out.
20  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: That is NOT, repeat NOT targeting on: November 21, 2020, 09:16:46 EST
THAT is BULLshizzle that it was "confirmed"
Birmingham once again going to bat for the big TV draws. Wouldn't want LSU to miss out on a bowl game.
21  Sports / VTTW Message Board / You just hate to see it. on: November 21, 2020, 07:58:22 EST
Franklin pulling the same shizzle at PSU that he did at Vanderbilt. If only someone could have seen this coming...

22  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: We're still getting good commitments......... on: November 21, 2020, 07:56:26 EST
Weird- he was previously committed to us and then decommitted shortly after we got Cody Brown. I hope this doesn't mean Brown is wavering.
23  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: We all agree, the Vols are bad. Really, really bad. on: November 21, 2020, 06:08:20 EST
No- you actually can bet that line, but only if you live in TN.
24  Sports / VTTW Message Board / Re: We all agree, the Vols are bad. Really, really bad. on: November 21, 2020, 04:38:37 EST
That seems to be the trend with football games now to have that number.  What does it even mean? 

Well in this case, it's a FanDuel promotion. Since sports betting is newly legal in TN, they're adding a point to the line for every 500 bettors on the game. The actual Vegas line is like 10.5.
25  Sports / VTTW Message Board / We all agree, the Vols are bad. Really, really bad. on: November 21, 2020, 03:46:26 EST
But are they +94.5 bad? Against Auburn?

I’m fairly confident. In fact, I’d give us a good 60% chance of beating that number.

WGBTFS.
