There is a lot of good things going on at LNS and UT is on the right track. There is still a long way to go to get the program back to where it was pre-Raleigh but the right folks are in place to get it done.
I get it that there are some tenn players on the roster but it can't be denied that many tenn players have left the program for whatever reason. I know for a fact a number of them were shown the door and that tenn hs and travel coaches coaches are very upset about the way the instate kids have been handled. Based on that the road to building this program back up is going to be significantly harder if recruiting the state of tenn is part of the process.
