    Our first game

    Whether or not Tennessee makes the NCAA Tournament will likely be almost entirely dependent upon their SEC performance; if UT were to miss the field of 68 this year (which is, we should hope, highly unlikely), the entire blame would be on Barnes' coaching/roster adjustments as opposed to...

    Is Guarantano the final nail in the coffin for Tennessee football?

    Tennessee was ranked in the top ten for several weeks in 2016 and, in retrospect, had a pretty good squad the year prior. I recognize that it's been an eternity since the Vols were a top ten fixture, competing for the conference/division and playing in esteemed bowls, but there's absolutely no...

    Our first game

    I'm not sure I understand the logic behind UT's attempt to schedule awful programs like Middle Tennessee several weeks out. Not only does MTSU not move the needle in terms of quality wins come Selection Sunday, but inking a deal with them puts you at risk of both missing that game due to MTSU...

    Our first game

    Oooh, I love that idea. I’d certainly like to see UT open up its season against a decent team (KenPom #87) a la Belmont and get their feet wet before a slightly more challenging game (KenPom #60) versus Cincinnati.

    Vandy weighs using female soccer player to kick

    I still think that Tennessee beats Vanderbilt with relative ease, but I am very glad that this weekend's game was postponed on the off-chance something else happens as the Vols losing to a Vandy team with a girl kicker would absolutely melt the program.

    The Official “Regular Posters of the Basketball Forum” Thread

    I was thinking about Tennessee's unfortunate scheduling predicament earlier this morning. Callous as it may sound, we're going to need to "hope" that some other programs encounter issues with COVID-19 in early-mid December if we want a puncher's chance at salvaging our OOC schedule. Everything...

    College Hoops Around The Country [TN opponents, RPI, others]

    That buzzer beater was very, very nice. I think that URI could give Arizona State a game tonight, but aside from that and SDSU vs. UCLA not too much on today’s docket is intriguing after this game.

    College Hoops Around The Country [TN opponents, RPI, others]

    Hoping that Saint Mary’s somehow finds a way to wallop Tiger High in half an hour on ESPN2. If Tennessee can’t play today, then at least we can (hopefully) watch Memphis lose.

    Rick Barnes Positive for COVID-19: Games this week are in doubt

    Figured that this was coming unless all of yesterday’s tests came back negative by some miracle.

    LV game 1 cancelled

    Given that one of those games was against Louisville on December 4th, I'd say that it's at least somewhat plausible that the Cards could come down to Knoxville that day. I get that replacing FAMU with a top-five team a week later seems a touch odd, but I would hope that a game like that can...

    Vanderbilt game postponed

    It has nothing to do with Tennessee and COVID-19, though. They just casually upended the Vols’ schedule to make the path to ten games easier for other teams.
