    Elliott on not taking UT job.

    I wonder if Steve Spurrier complained about being "in a position where we have a legitimate opportunity to win" when he took the job at Duke? I wonder if Nick Saban complained about being "in a position where we have a legitimate opportunity to win" at Michigan State? He's right about one...

    SEC COACH/YEAR?

    Definitely should have been Blair. 9 wins versus ranked opponents. 22-1. Hard to see how that's not CotY.

    How did Jennifer Azzi get away from Pat ?

    To be fair, practically every player wanted to come here during that era -- easier to misplace a tape when you've got hundreds coming in. Probably also easy to flat out make a rushed evaluation in a sea of evaluations and miss on a prospect. I've always suspected it was the latter. After two...

    How important is Tennessee football in your life ?

    I have a group of close friends who live all across the country, who are all part of my "tribe" of Tennessee fans. We're talking west coast, east coast, Texas and the midwest, etc., but we managed to make time to catch one game a year or thereabouts. Road trips, air travel, many good stories...

    Best SEC Town/City (other than KnoxVegas)

    Nashville for the best vibes and music, Oxford for the best views and the least annoying opinions. Of the two, I'd stick with Nashville. Though I confess 2005 Nashville appeals more to me than 2020 Nashville. Anyway.

    Okay, for real: what, exactly, is wrong with Fulky?

    Fulkerson has lost muscle mass, appears lethargic and slow to react, has to come out of the game more, and can't seem to keep up with the pace of the game -- this isn't rocket science. It's pretty obvious at this point what's happened to him, or at least what appears to have happened to him...

    The Official #25 Tennessee @ Auburn Game Thread, 12:00 PM ET, ESPN

    Tennessee shot better from the field than Auburn, both inside and outside the line - not by much, but they did shot better. Tennessee however had 10 free throws to Auburn's 37. Auburn made 22 points on free throws. That's the difference in the game. You won't win many games when you shoot 27...

    Should be a second on the clock.

    You like how that official waited to see if the ball went in before calling a foul on Pons?

    "Tennessee doing Tennessee things" used to be cool.

    Everyone was counting on Fulkerson with that one, I think. Regardless of why he's struggling, he's struggling. Tennessee would be cruising to an almost undefeated season so far with 2019 Fulkerson. As far as the "Final Four contender" talk goes, anyway.

    Lol. Final Four banners. The "I Was There" t-shirt of college basketball arenas.

    Rennia Returning Next Year?

    Organizational investment (colleges field them for both sexes), federal guidance and enforcement (Title IX), and parallel operation with men's basketball (in terms of salaries, TV contracts, and exposure). Women's basketball gets a boost from being run alongside men's basketball in the college...

    College Football Nobility

    Clemson is an empire - that's a huge miss to me. How does Clemson not make that top tier? Weird.

    Staff being creative...

    Ah yes, group teamwork activities. The bane of any low level employee's existence. Woe unto those who would submit feedback that their group lacks communication or teamwork skills, for they shall suffer an unending stream of these "activities" and "programs" until that feedback improves.
