    Who else noticed Burns body language was off to start the 7th?

    What a great post! And it doesn't rely on 20/20 hindsight for its reasoning! It was a great season by the best baseball team in Tennessee history. Thanks to the BaseVols for an amazing, focused and outstanding effort! Now, wait til next season. GBO!

    Hit By Pitch

    I truly don't think it is as much about an intentional bias as much as it was just a different ump with, almost certainly, a different view of the play. Baseball has a huge human element that is and always has been part of the game.

    Thoughtful and solid post.

    Amen! Relationships are the bedrock of any successful team and they are particularly important in women's athletics. The sooner someone gets here, the better, provided it is the right person. I like the list of characteristics in turbo's post. I'm looking forward to seeing this team play in...

    No surprise here. Ms. Huff is standout in a freshman class of standouts. It's interesting to me that she is named as a forward. With her skillset, I would prefer to play her in the mid under the theory that she will maximize her opportunities to touch the ball and affect the game there...

    There's nothing like a loss or two to a significantly less talented team to motivate and refocus the troops. I'll be very surprised if the team projected pre-season to be fourth or so in the division doesn't reappear with a vengance in the coming days. Go Vols!

    If I was starting a new college program from scratch, I think I would have one brand and one logo for all - men and women. Yes, the LV is an older brand with an older appearance, but, we have some pretty significant history here that needs to be considered, not tossed. The Lady Vol brand and...

    I Surrender

    You know, your post is pretty accurate (though more "Saban-centric" than I have ever worried about). My issue is that, I think the across the board result of NIL and the free-for-all portal is bound to be the end of college football as I remember and loved it. It will be professional minor...

    mad, don't let your disappointment drive you to this conclusion. Based on media reports, it appears that he was already at or near the top of the salary market before his recent raise. Also, there has been no indication that UT was ever provided an opportunity to respond to an offer from FSU...

    Tennessee Vols Basketball Recruiting

    I think, at best, "college sports" is on life support and that, to me, a fan of old school, "mostly amateur" athletics, is very sad. I couldn't care less about the NBA because I have zero interest in watching a bunch of millionaires running around and playing at the NBA version of basketball...

    Brandon Huntley-Hatfield enters the transfer portal

    I have no idea whether BHH even has the option of changing his mind about transferring; but, I'm pretty sure if he did it would benefit him far more than it would the Vols in the short term. He has all the raw materials to be a tremendous player except for the part that puts it all together -...

    Maybe Rick Barnes can hire Cuonzo Martin as an assist

    Honestly, both are 0%. Never gonna happen and that is okay.

    Rob Lanier to SMU

    Shocker! ;)

    It’s the same question as in football.

    "Little stuff like that" often decide games between closely matched opponents. Most teams in the field of the NCAAT are, by definition, going to be closely matched. One may be "better" on paper, but it is the game result that matters and, if you know sports, you also know that's just how the...

    UT vs UM

    Way too much common sense in this post! GBO!
