Any more like this and we'll transfer from the ncaa bubble to the NIT bubble.

Is it just me or does it seem the officials are really picking on Grant Williams lately? He's as undersized as any big we've ever had yet they're calling him for garbage. Won't let him be physical at all, lots of touch fouls.

This is a young club that is still learning how to play hard consistently for 40 minutes and we will be lucky to get an NIT Bid this season.

If we finish 5-3, we will be dissecting the bubble and won't be lucky to get into the NIT.

I don't think you can give him the benefit of the doubt just because he's undersized. If anything, being undersized means he has to cut corners against bigger players. He'll have to adjust. He has shown signs of undisciplined play defensively at times. He just has to learn to defend without fouling. I think he does well at that at times, but then picks up some ticky-tack fouls as well. Just part of the learning curve for a freshman.

Yep. And lots of people here too. Just like the guy at the bar watching the Super Bowl tomorrow telling anyone who will listen how he was a big shot player back whenever and if it wasn't for that knee injury he would've made it big...

I'm sick and tired how a lot of the teams at UT has become Jeykll and Hyde. Football, basketball, men, women whatever. They play lights out one day but then lay a turd the next...

It's not difficult to understand why this basketball team does it. I said before the season that fans will need to be patient. They would win some they shouldn't and lose some they shouldn't. Young team. Been following basketball too long to think otherwise.

I stand by my statement. I feel we win the SEC tournament this year and break the streak getting that monkey off our back.

I watched them play USCe yesterday, so I wouldn't count those chickens just yet. UGA is playing well and they have size too.

This is Tennessee, in any sport, the potential talent to run with anyone. But the team that breaks the heart of their fan base because they don't always feel like a full effort.
Please tell me that this is the first Tennessee basketball game you've watched this year, or that you're colorblind and were actually watching Kentucky last night and simply got confused.

That bolded statement is the last thing anyone with any sense would use to describe this team's body of work to this point. I will agree that MSU beat them on the boards and to most loose balls in the 2nd half, but your sentiment seems to go beyond the spectrum of yesterday's game. Hopefully it was just poor wording, because it couldn't be any further from the truth otherwise.

I am impressed, they play crazy good basketball on the road. I was not expecting anywhere near this level of quality this season. Not only did Barnes find diamonds in the rough he coached them up and zero coach speak in the press conferences. This is what happens when you hire qualified employees. Wish the football team had quality experienced leadership like this.

I try not to post much anymore, but a few posts in here drove me to it. How can you look at any game this team plays and just not be thrilled with what Barnes and Co are doing? This is a VERY YOUNG, and undersized team that is going to to toe with any and everyone. Despite what your panties in a wad attitude says, some need to calm down. Once we get some bigger bodies in here, this group will be awesome to watch. We might have lost yesterday, but I saw a team fighting and hungry. Shots just didn't fall after the half.
