Did Rick Barnes really tell everybody

That this team could win the national title?

Bro what is you doing?!?!

Even if you know they are you can't say that and definitely can't let your fans hear you say that.

If this team fails to get past the Sweet 16(which based on his history at Tennessee it's not a foregone conclusion) he will look like a buffoon.

Scorching hot take that Tennessee will most likely lose in the NCAAT.

Keep up the good work.

Nothing wrong with having confidence in your players, but he just put a bigger target on their backs and immense pressure on them

Help me understand Arkansas’ obsession with Tennessee, other than last year Tennessee has been better than Arkansas by nearly every measurable statistic since the year 2000. Which is the lifetime of nearly every current basketball player’s age in college basketball, now Arkansas might win the next 5 championships but to talk down to Tennessee’s program like it’s Vanderbilt is comical.

Keep hoping and dreaming. Arky fans are like that physco ex that you can't seem to escape.

Barnes has created a team that is like a family. They clearly are playing loose, having fun and got each other's backs out there.

What's comical is a program who has NEVER been to a Final Four and has only once been to an Elite Eight think's it's superior to..well anybody.

If we look at your arbitrary date which just so happens to include the best years in TU's history and the worst years of UA's..

Tennessee has been to 12 tourneys
Arkansas has been to 10

Arkansas has 1 Elite 8
Tennessee has 1 Elite 8

Arkansas has 1 Conference Tourney Championship
Tennessee now has 1 Conference Tourney Championship

We prefer to live in the present...you know...the one where Arkansas CHOKED yesterday against the Aggies and the one in which we just dusted both Kentucky and A&M in less than a 24 hour time frame.

His team could win the national title. I don't see the problem.

Nothing wrong with expressing confidence in his team, he said could, not would win it. And they’re playing as well as anyone right now. Damn, I just defended UT … frick me …

Better than us, for sure.

No one alive outside of the state of Arkansas cares about your Final Fours from 27 years ago just as no one cares about Tennessee’s NC in 98 outside of the state of Tennessee. Tennessee has 4 regular season championships and one additional tournament championship which you conveniently left out in that time span; Tennessee has 6 Sweet Sixteen appearance in that timeframe, Arkansas has 1. Outside of last year Arkansas hasn’t made it out of the round of 32 since 2000. You keep dreaming though

Lol @ Arky fans doing the “we won a national championship in the 90s”…we are Tennessee fans, try this on another fan base.

Exactly. Arkansas fans are too dumb to realize how irrelevant they really are.

It's ok bro, I feel the same way whenever I get stuck defending y'all.

As to what Barnes said... Tennessee men's basketball has a ton of leeway with fans. We're not at that super elite level where saying something like this fires up delusional yokels to a froth and gets him fired if he fails. We support our team and are pretty damned happy with what they've accomplished, especially given how they started.

We joke about how long Fulky has been around but this team has had 5 freshmen seeing serious PT and we've watched each of them make freshman mistakes while also having moments where they absolutely shine. The future is bright for us. Confidence is good for them.
