Second Vols game in a row he has gone off about how the NCAA is dragging their feet through the mud on a program that has been caught on tape talking about paying players and those players are still playing and the coach is still coaching, meanwhile programs like Tennessee Football (his intro to the discussion against Florida) and Kansas basketball (today's intro) are dealing with more recent issues.
Last time he said the NCAA better not do anything to Tennessee because of how they handled it internally should be sufficient. Today he talked about how Kansas has denied any wrongdoing from the beginning and their 5 Level 1 violations are based on assumptions without proof. Then contrasted to LSU.
It looks like Pons was letting the new guys have their shot to shine in the first 8 or so games and then Barnes told him to get his sh^t together and take charge like last year. We should be fine as long as Pons and Fulk keep stepping up.
Because good defenses make it harder to score for anybody, especially when you have team talent ranked in the 40s playing teams with 4* and 5* defenders stacked up like cord wood..plus it is not like they had great talent to start with. I think JH squeezed every drop of production he possibly could out of that group of players.
