Why did Kwe Phillips not play today and try to guard Frazier? Frazier singlehandely kept Georgia in the game today.

I see other teams in the big 12 and big 10 who have worse records than us who have 50x the student body support than we do. I just don't get it.
28,000+ students, they are allotted I think 5,200 seats and barely ever use 1,000. In fact a few games barely hit 200.

2. Why were our fans (mostly students) chanting "Frazier" over and over all game? Way to go, you ticked him off.

3. Last but absolutely not least, and in my opinion a total joke and embarrassment, furniture/couches and tables in the student section. Why have we even put chairs back there anyway? That section behind the goal used to be fun, creative, and loud. Now there's damn tables and couches and even up until the final minute people sitting on their phones socializing. This needs to be addressed to someone at UT and done away with.

Rant over. Go Vols.
All the fuss about the students taunting Frazier is overblown, and only an issue because he torched us as he's seemingly always done against us. If he had struggled like Maten, we'd be praising the student section for getting in his head and making a difference. I know it's natural after a loss to try and find auxiliary things that may have made the difference, but that wasn't one of them.

It just sounded stupid chanting "Frazier" over and over in unison by like 30 people. Just make noise, alot of it.

And I'd bet you'd have felt differently if he had 5 points on 2-15 shooting, he looked visibly shaken by the crowd, and we beat UGA by 20 points.

I'm just saying that it only appears dumb now because he lit us up like he always does. In a game where we blow a double-digit 2nd half lead, it just seems like a silly thing to complain about. There's plenty else to legitimately complain about, but to each their own. I'm just happy the crowd was into the game and heckled someone instead of staying home or coming and sitting on their hands.

I wonder if Parker was being disciplined. He was dressed out though.

TN only had 5 turnovers tonight. Maybe that had something to do with Bone, Turner, and Shembari handling the PG spot.

Bowden was on Frazier for at least one trip. It didn't end well.

Was it Florida students that waived pictures of Dane Bradshaw's sister at him? I thought that that was pretty funny. Seems like DB thought so too.

I was saying it 5 mins into the game how dumb it sounded.

Parker can't shoot, can't pass , and struggles to bring the ball up.

He's athletic, but that's it for right now

I think we paid $2.00 back then (not sure). Maybe we're not in the top 25, but show your support. Recruits see what the fan base is, and the students define it. No fan base, no good recruits. Makes it harder for Rick Barnes too
I graduated in 78 - same Ernie & Bernie show - we camped out for our student tickets and we were loud!!! Duke and UNC had nothing on us! Student fan support is huge basketball!
