Buddy, right now the Vols are not the #1 team in the nation. They are there because they have not lost since Thanksgiving and not because they have looked like a #1 team. They have looked like anything but a #1 team in the nation. The best thing the Vols have found so far is that Bowden, and Bone have started taking their shots and gained more confidence. So that makes 4 or 5 players, if you count Turner (streaky so far not consistent ) that can score 10 and more every night. The great thing is that Bowden and Bone are actually consistent and have a good 2 point game if the 3 doesn't fall. Its a thing of beauty when they are all putting up their shots. But they will pay for some of the foolish things they have been doing when they pull out to a lead and get careless and play dumb ball.
The best teams in the country win..........THEY WIN!

All Tennessee has done since Thanksgiving is win, and that is what a good teams do. Since then Virg has lost twice, and once at home, since then Duke has lost at home to Syracuse, since then Mich has lost twice to unranked teams, since then KY has lost to Seton Hall & Bama.......both unranked teams, since then Gonzaga has lost twice........one of them to Tennessee.


Not sure in your opinion has looked like the number one team.........as everyone except for Tennessee has lost and most of them have lost to unranked teams or lost at home, or both (see Duke).

Some were and some weren't. Your fans are like our fans. Some give respect and others, not so much. The fact is no one can predict the future. Hope is all we have and in the end, the team that scores the most will win the game.
Every passionate fan base is stupid. Every fan base thinks other fan bases are stupid. But I promise some of the people on VN are a special kind of out there. But like I've said many times, there are plenty of people on here that I respect a lot and enjoy seeing post.

If they play like they can EZE.......they play better on the road than at home. I could be wrong but I think competition steps up a couple of levels beginning Saturday...Hopefully they don't have too many of those lulls they seem to go through.
No team plays a perfect game. There is another team on the floor competing too and there will always be runs both ways.

BUT...when you are consistently winning by double digits, you are doing a lot of things right.

Kentucky has a lot on their plate this week. LSU and Tennessee. I'm sure they see the possibilities if they win both. As you say the Cats play good D and have athletes. I was just reading the LSU-Kentucky preview of the game on the Blue thread and they sounded out the lackluster play at Miss St. Sounded a lot like my criticism of the Vols games at home.

Ok, short answer this time. Stop being so negative and enjoy it while it lasts. This team has been fun to watch regardless of how excruciating it can be at times. Go Vols!!!
Excruciating?
I watch these games with confidence!

I highly agree with your statement about enjoying this season, we may be experiencing a once in a lifetime team. I will enjoy every second!

Do you realize how you just contradicted yourself? And the rest of what you said is just unsupported opinion. The people who have a vote disagree with you. Deal with it.

You can grade the Vols by their play starting 2/16.......hopefully they don't overlook S.C. or they may get shocked then. Tennessee hasn't been playing like a #1 team. They play about well enough to win when they fill in the gaps of lackluster play.
They turn it on when they have to. The only game where they didn’t turn it on was Vandy.
