A+ rated post. Somebody gets it. Martin, IMO, is not a very good representative of UT. Just stand there and let them bully you around, sissy.

Actually it's not. He's a terrible coach. Bruce or any competent coach would have beat KY last night. KY is down and with or without maymon we could have one. You guys who keep saying we would have won with Maymon are idiots. Blaming a loss bc we are missing a player is stupid especially when we lose to garbage teams. Why you guys think all coaches should be granted 4 years or more before you judge results are crazy. The writing is on the wall. Jarnel Stokes should be a beast right now. Instead he's soft. That's 100% coaching fellas. Please someone give me an educated answer as to why I could be wrong.

You're a dumbass if you think that bringing in a style from another conference against 13 teams who are the same is gonna work. We are trying to play defense and run the clock down. That's working swell isn't it? That's like saying just because Oregon has won so much that if we hired chip Kelly he would have the same record at Tennessee.

I think our D was better when we were playing slower, I remember holding teams at or under 40% from the field, now it's consistently over 45% from the field. Our perimeter D was also good, now teams are shooting 30, 40 even 50 percent from deep. That's a direct result IMO of our transition D and losin mg guys.

I've been saying it for a week or so now...what do you do? Play fast our D suffers, but Jordy has flourished and we're scoring better. Slow it down and our D is better, but you hamstring a lot of our offensive guys. IMO its a fine line, and where a good PG would help right now. We need to push, but only certain spots, we can't let it effect our defense...we still need teams to play half court offense against us.
We played at KY's tempo last night which is about 70.4 posspg. Our normal tempo is about 64.4.
It did seem like we had a lot of TOs but only about 6 per half which is pretty good for this team. (13 ttl)
Perimeter defense is what killed us last night.
Wiltjer standing wide open on just about every shot he took. McBee on Mays didn't help either.

yea like when Mac got run flat over by one of UK's big men on the block. even the announcers repeatedly said that it was too much contact not to be called a foul on one of them - block or charge. But when the defender is stationary and gets knocked to floor by definition that is a charge.

Pearl supporters seem to forget that when Tennessee made its Elite 8 run under Pearl, it was under a slow tempo offense. They didn't run teams out of the gym to do so. Cuonzo will be fine.

Maybe that's true. But Bruce's team came to play and won most games they were supposed to win.
