It could be made into a monster
- Dec 2, 2011
For whatever reason, Tennessee just hasn't been a lucky program when it comes to basketball; there's really no other way to explain a flagship school in an extremely strong conference having one Elite Eight appearance in 24 NCAA Tournament trips. Tennessee has everything but tournament success going for it, however, so when the Vols finally break through and play basketball in April it won't be seen as an anomaly. I too am disappointed that Tennessee is flat come tournament time, but I truly believe that the recipe for becoming a perennial title contender involves consistent success and stability as a program until that run occurs and I don't think it's unreasonable to say that the program has never been as stable as it is right now.
