re: Offseason Edition: UT Basketball discussion
Part of why I said that has to do with my mood right after that game, so I'll take that back to an extent.

Being a young guy and seeing the Vols do badly for so much of my life has taken a toll on my optimism. I'm sorry to be so negative, but deep down, I still believe our athletics aren't what they should be if you consider the amount of money our department has. To increase my faith in our AD, I will have to see a better product in Neyland first. I'm sorry, but there is zero excuse to be losing to Vanderbilt and getting blown out by Missouri. I really hope Pruitt has those boys ready in the fall; maybe we just needed to purge the Lyle scrubs first.

On the other side of the coin, Tennessee basketball has been great this century. It's disappointing when we have been robbed of advancing in the NCAAT twice in the past five years, but this program has some flippin' resolve. We have been through quite a bit with the falling out of Pearl and Tyndall, but we always come back swinging. I think we are a definite top 5 basketball program in the SEC going forward.

re: Offseason Edition: UT Basketball discussion
Lol don’t EVER apologize for being negative, most sports have sucked for VOLS for a long time which we all know. It was cool watching football at its peak and I do hate that you young fans didn’t get to experience that.

Agree with you that the AD is not where is should be as far as rankings, but I feel for the first time in forever that steps are being taken to address that and Fulmer isn’t just a solicitor for donations. I wish Fulmer would only have piss troughs in Neyland and say frick all the donations.

Personally I think the football team will suck again this year but I’ve accepted that UT will probably not return to former glory which sucks but I’m not sure our football donors are committed to winning big again.

Edit: the jumbled mess of words above probably don’t make sense but oh well.

I think we're on an upward trend with the AD in general. If we give Pruitt time I think he can build it into something sustainable. If that means 8-4 and 9-3 seasons is the new normal... I'm fine with that.

At his age, with his connections to Tennessee, and the mess that UCLA is currently in all make me think it’s pretty unlikely he bails out but never say never, I hope it isn’t the case

If he leaves it would be so Tennessee it hurts. Word has leaked to local media that apparently he doesn’t feel appreciated, whatever the hell that means?

Well, we just gave him an extension and raise this past year so.... I hope he stays but I don't want to get into a bidding war over him.

re: Offseason Edition: UT Basketball discussion
It's sounding positive for the good guys regarding Jalen Cone's recruitment -- From Rob Lewis earlier:

quote:

Heard Rick Barnes’ and Des Oliver’s visit with Jalen Cone went very well today.

He has set up an official visit for Mother’s Day weekend, May 10-12. Sounds like he’s very open to the idea of reclassifying at the moment
