I know outside of Martin getting a felony that he's getting at least another year.

Some of you that try and play athletic director would have UT as the laughingstock of the world. Hell, you would make Mike Hamilton look competent.

Apt. Apt assessment, OB.

Dooley was in Year 3, and a year most people agreed he needed to do well. He didn't. Plus depending on who you listen to, Dooley's fate might not have been fully sealed until the Vandy blowout; meaning had UT found a way to upset Vandy, he may have still saved his job.

It's pretty clear to most that next year is Martin's year to make or break. If they only win 2 games from here out, then yes Hart will almost have to make a change, but I seriously doubt that happens.

So yes, you can say no one knows for sure, but you can make a pretty educated prediction: Martin will be here next year.

I agree with you that he won't be fired but I hate that argument....its like you are saying we are just lowly Tennessee and shouldn't expect better.

Heck it's a good thing duke doesn't do business that way...K was a combined 38-47 in his first 3 years with 1 NIT appearance.

Again, good thing some of these posters aren't AD. We'd be the laughingstock of all collegiate sports. Some of you would make Mike Hamilton look like the greatest AD ever.

Not to make light of a dark situation, but sometimes dire moments such as our team faced with the suspensions pulls a team together and lights a fire under them. They came right back out and punched Kansas in the mouth.
