From the Commercial Appeal Sunday article: Hardaway's Tigers Already Moving on to Tennessee (before our Gonzaga win)
"It's going to be a problem," Hardaway said. "Right now they are ranked (seventh) in the nation, and they've already played Kansas and had Kansas beat. ...They are just...
#Vols coach Rick Barnes: One of the officials walked up to me during the game yesterday and said, “This feels like March.” I said, “Well, then, let’s ref it like March."
Barnes is awesome and I hope he stays forever.
VERY physical game and it was encouraging that the refs let them play.
Except - the cbb game suffers terribly from "moving-pick-itis". Refs only care if the screener is late...even if he barely brushes the defender(or even whiffs entirely) a foul is called. Grant's 3rd foul was a phantom...
I had to keep checking to make sure we weren't watching the Longhorn Network - but of course Landers and Lobo have no love for the LVs. But when Landers said Conrad set the table for women's cb and Pat came along and built on her success, I almost chucked something at the tv.
Looked like our watch party was going to get snowed out here in Farragut but the big melt is underway.
C'mon - can we PLEASE win this one? Vol Nation deserves an epic feel-good W...it's been awhile and roundball is our only hope for the forseeable future.
We are UT and we don't make splash hires. Well....Rick Barnes, but look how THAT turned out. Couldn't beat pre-season number one and looked ragged against a Southland Conf. team.
Stick to the script - hire someone we'd least expect (or express a desire for).
