There are two former VFL's in Lofton and Bradshaw that could help turn the ship around as assistant coaches. But what do we have instead? 8-7 and 0-3 with very little hope for anything better until next season.

That's what you get when you get Gators and Bammers running the show.

The original music went well with this video, but it's still a good one. Those pull-up 3s against Memphis were pretty sweet too

Yeah every time there is an opening on the football side, everyone wants Al Wilson to coach linebackers.

Lofton is the main reason why I am addicted to Tennessee Basketball now. Hopefully one day we will get another one like him, but I doubt it. He was a special player. To me, he was more the reason for Tennessee basketball's return than Pearl.

Lofton was a great college basketball player. Too bad he doesn't have any more eligibility.

Yes, I remember the last time that we won at Rupp!

I sure miss Billy Gillespie. Wish he were still the coach at U.K. We could always count on a win against U.K., when he was the coach there.

I also miss Ron Zook at Florida. Wish he were still Florida's coach. We haven't been able to beat Florida since he left.

I also miss Mike Shula, Mike DuBose & Dennis Franchoni and wish they still coached at Alabama.....

Hands down my favorite Vol of all time, any sport, any time, Lofton and Pearl made me fall in love, Martin is making the love a little tough, but I am all VOL basketball!

Led team in scoring 53 times from his sophomore-senior season.

Ranks fourth in the NCAA all-time with 431 3-pointers, while his 3-pt % (42) Is higher than anyone else in the top-15.

Career Averages

Ppg: 16.6

Assists: 1.7

Steals: 1.5

Boards: 3.3

Sr year at Georgia, might have been Jr year, single-handedly beat them. Dude couldn't miss and Georgia was all over him. Hadn't been that excited listening to a radio broadcast in a long time.

Both him and Dale Ellis are my two favorite basketball vols.

That certain crowd that thinks Bruce didn't do anything to hurt UT certainly thinks that way.
