    Way to go young ladies. I'm sure Pat is proud. Outstanding!

    How well I want my point guard to shoot from long-range depends on whether there's anyone else on the team that can consistently hit an outside shot. Unfortunately there has been no one for the LVS the last few years. So at this point I don't care where it comes from we need a consistent...

    Lady Vols vs UConn 2021

    Oh no doubt. Evil laughs while twirling his mustache. This is the guy who calls his own far end of the bench players the Slugs.

    Lady Vols vs UConn 2021

    To discuss players, their stats and their potential impact on the upcoming season on a fan message board? Yeah, totally nuts man. Who does that? I'm surprised to see so much statistical Improvement from Evinas frosh to sophomore year. Didn't seem that different on court to me, still crazy...

    Should fans be communicating with recruits?

    This thread made me think of another question I have, and I think its related; if off topic I apologize in advance. Some of the contact we're talking about with recruits and parents is apparently to offer up private coaching services. What is the rule about accepting outside coaching or...

    Should fans be communicating with recruits?

    Not personal. Never personal. That's the difference in us as posters.

    Saniya Rivers' quote

    You're winners. And we're jealous. And sadly living on past glories.

    Should fans be communicating with recruits?

    Because the one side so easily and often turns into the other. Can't believe this is news to anyone, but when adult men contact young women they don't know for any purpose they are on very shaky ground. Makes it tough to legitimately market oneself to that clientele I know, but that's the way it...

    Should fans be communicating with recruits?

    Exactly. Great post. Good point. The anonymity of the internet. Unfortunately, there are those that can fathom and do have the gumption. I believe they are far, far more a hindrance than a help to recruiting.

    Should fans be communicating with recruits?

    Yes, exactly. To go beyond a generic "love to have you!" is selfish and silly. We often hear "give KJH a chance." Well here's your chance to give her one. Do not horn in! Whether you admit it or not, you do represent the U of T in that kids' mind. So don't. You're right, I did have something a...

    Should fans be communicating with recruits?

    Just bc you can do something doesn't mean you should. I still haven't seen anyone give an upside. We see fm the Texas A&M site it's a potential rules violation, and that the actual professional recruiters much prefer others not "help" them with their carefully planned communication. We see from...

    Anyone have an update on Morasha Wiggins ?

    Not personal. Ever. Applies to anyone who insinuates themselves into the recruiting process. He just likes to tell us when he does it.

    Should fans be communicating with recruits?

    I'm a CEO working on delicate negotiation with an important client. I've worked the relationship carefully, I know exactly how this client likes to be communicated with. Then all the sudden the guy fm the mail room pipes up with his 2¢ worth? A thousand times NO. There's no possible upside that...

    Anyone have an update on Morasha Wiggins ?

    No need. Not personal. About recruiting, and this players particularly.

    Anyone have an update on Morasha Wiggins ?

    I hope it doesn't get cut. I'm honestly curious and obviously out of date. What are the benefits of fans communicating actively with recruits and families as opposed to the obvious risks? I think it's a worthwhile discussion

    Anyone have an update on Morasha Wiggins ?

    But why? That's what I can't wrap my head around. Random fans actually talking to families seems so potentially harmful to the recruiting process. What if you say the wrong thing, piss them off? Why risk that? Seems like it makes KJH job that much harder. She alone needs to control the...

    Anyone have an update on Morasha Wiggins ?

    Boy howdy! You think? To the point that some actually interject themselves into the real life process. Remember how often we've said recruiting is about carefully building relationships? Can you imagine horning in on that fragile work? Poor Kelly, what a nightmare. Surreal. And what, exactly...

    The 2020 Tennessee Lady Vols

    Baloney. I favor free speech. Because the alternative is who decides when things NEED to be said? Any recommendations for that committee? Perserve free speech, and use the ignore feature as needed. I'm more comfortable than some practicing free forum speech because I suffer no illusion that...

    Is signing a PG a must?

    How about a compromise? Having a great point guard does not guarantee championships, but it's darn hard to win one without at least a very good point guard. I'm old school, I'd kill for a little organization and flow to the LV offense and we need a very steady PG to get that started. And to cut...

    Is signing a PG a must?

    Agree. We heard KJH discuss pg position in her recent Sports Talk interview. She said it was an area of obvious concern for the upcoming season and named options such as bringing someone in, going with current (JH) or pg by committee. Sounded like she has an open mind and there will be healthy...
