I guess they hired the right coach instead of Barnes. That has to be a bit humbling to know that a lesser hire outperformed you in year one. It’s hard to imagine Barnes taking that squad to a Final Four

I'm not a Barnes basher like some on here, but Cronin has definitely done a great job with the talent he has.

Reality is if UT would've let Barnes leave at the time UCLA was courting him, fans would've rioted. Now....maybe not so much.
I think Barnes has done well at UT but I have a hard time believing he takes that team to a FF

What if Rick had taken the UCLA job who do you think Tennessee would have hired to replace him? I think Rob Lanier could very well have been who Tennessee would have hired as Men's Basketball Coach.

If it happened today it would be our athletic directors brother and he would have a 15 million dollar buyout.

Why does everything have to be spun into a new angle to bash our coaches? Every time UCF wins a game this fall, it will be "Heupel would have lost that". The negativity is over the top.
