What I liked and think is important is the start of the game. Strong. Assertive. We went down low to Grant and he got two quick fouls on #34. Threw Georgia off and they were never the same.

Just because this needs in the postgame as well.

That was hilarious. We were sitting in that corner on the 3rd row. #34 sat up for 2-3 seconds with the most crazy looking face of WTH just hit me I've ever seen. He's a dang good looking player too. Really helped early when Grant drew 2 fouls on him in the 1st minute.

Lots of class by Jordan to come over and let him know it was just a play and not malicious. Love the culture our coach has brought. Minus the balled fists of course! 🤣

I don’t owe anyone anything, as always people can do what they want with info I share...it’s funny though that when I post positive things or recruiting info it’s gold, but the one “negative” thing and I’m FOS
Fabricating a negative rumor about an injured player who has given his all was a real shitbird thing to do. Hopefully others have learned to not slurp.

I’m not sure I ever predicted 5 more losses, I think I just said that those saying no running the table or 1-2 losses was pretty lofty expectations when analaytics were saying 5 losses. The road is no joke in conference play, just ask UK...I have a hard time thinking we don’t slip up or have a bad game or 2, has any team ever gone through a whole year without a couple bad games?
I predict 5 or more losses yes indeed. I stick by what I said until proven wrong. I love the team but live in reality.

On to a positive note. Never seen a Vols team with so many players dialed in. You have the Admiral, Grant, Bone, Bowden all talking and keeping everyone up and not letting the other players lose sight of their responsibilities on the court. That in and of itself is huge in these games.

I understand this. But someone made the program that calculates said statistical program. What I’m saying is that the program/algorithm/whatever had us ranked outside of the top ten before today, it is flawed
No, it’s just they way with statistics. They get to be more accurate predictors the more games you play. There just isn’t enough data for us (or the other teams) to get accurate predictions at this point. Give it another month and his model starts to really look good. It’s just super dependent on volume of data.

If we can get consistent play from the point guards like we did today, I really think we are a legit FF/championship caliber team. Too many weapons, suffocating defense. A lights-out outside shooter would be the only piece we might be lacking.... COME ON LT!

Calm down folks it's just a win Over Georgia.this team has potential but inconstant guard play will cost them at some point. they have accomplished nothing other than beating a number one team and anyone can do that any given Saturday
12-1 is nothing? Try again dumbazz

You do a fantastic job BTO and yes we will probably lose 5 if not more. Fla, Ala, Ky, Au, Mizzou, LSU, Texas A&M, Miss St. too many out there. Lots of people of all sorts on the boards. Hold your ground and call it the way you see it just like your end of game reports that we ALL enjoy. We may not agree on all things but we do on most. I have no problem with someone calling me out for saying I think we can lose 5 or 7 games. I'll be happy to just lose 5 or 7. This is a long season.

We’re genuinely sorry your mother didn’t love you but please go rain on someone else’s parade.

I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed a team that tries to succeed on every possession like these guys do. They value the ball, they pass the ball, rarely too much dribbling, they take good shots and my teenager finally gets to enjoy a Ut sporting event

How can anybody who has watched this team predict them to lose 5 conference games?

Amazing effort to open SEC play.

Still amazed that this isn't rubbing off on Walker or Johnson. With no pressure Walker still looks lost on both ends of the court. Seems like a guy with his ability would be hitched to Admiral and Grant any time they are in the gym. Make no mistake, the results we are seeing is due to the individual work of Grant and Admiral and their love to be coached hard.

A&M is awful and Florida lost at home to SC yesterday. I'm not concerned about those two
