Tony V getting choked up last night in the post-game interview had me on the verge of tears. I tell you, I have NEVER loved a Tennessee head coach more. This guy operates like if you took a Tennessee fan out of the crowd and gave them the tools they needed to be a successful head coach. He is ONE OF US.

Hey 67, Ardent....All I Wanna do is drink beer for Breakfast!!!

Yes, yes sir, still celebrating Legoooooooooooooo!!!
I’m on the golf course in Nashville with vendors for a charity event this morning and I don’t golf; therefore I had no issue taking two shots of Fireball at 8:45am at the sponsor tent on our 3rd hole. Side note, it’s so cool to see all the orange out here this morning. I’d estimate that 25% of the participants are rocking something UT this morning. This team is truly putting a stamp on the state.

Haven’t seen the first one. Hell when I got to town last night and checked into my hotel they were showing the LSU-Oregon game in the lobby while the Vandy game was going on.
Sorry, I can’t resist, the black and gold don’t bother with actually playing golf they just show up at the 19th hole bar and don’t pick up after themselves.

CAFEGO!!!

CTV would much rather wait until the end of the season to negotiate. Why negotiate now?

Current accomplishments:
  • SEC East regular season champs
  • Finished 2nd in SEC Tournament
  • 2nd seed in NCAA tournament
  • Hosted a Regional
  • Won to Regional
  • Host a Super Regional
  • First NCAA team to win 40 games in 2021
  • Fastest Tennessee baseball coach to 100 victories
  • Won every SEC road series
  • Only lost two SEC series
  • Never swept in an SEC series
  • Current RPI #2
  • Current winning percentage 75%, (48-16).
  • Leads the SEC in ERA - 3.42
  • ERA - 8th nationally - 3.42
  • Base on Balls - 5th nationally - 323 in 64 games
  • Double - Tied for 5th nationally - 128 in 64 games
  • Hits - 3rd nationally - 624 - 64 games & 2,221 ABs
  • Home Runs - Tied 4th nationally - 92 in 64 games
  • HR per game - 17th nationally - 1.44 in 64 games
  • Runs - 8th nationally - 452 in 64 games
  • Strike out to walk ratio - 4th nationally - 3.59 (578 SO / 161 BB)
  • WHIP (walks & hits / inning) - 6th nationally - 1.16 (161 BB / 509 HA)
  • Wins & Losses % - Tied 4th nationally - 75% (48-16)
  • Walks Allowed / Inning - 3rd nationally - 2.5 per game
Still able to accomplish:
  • Win the Super Regional
  • Advance to Omaha College World Series
  • First NCAA team to win 50 games in 2021
  • Win the College World Series
  • End the season #1
  • Win the NCAA Coach of the Year
  • Can still improve on any of the above
There are still way too many accomplishments on the table to negotiate now. There is zero chance anything will be done until the season is over. I get it, CTV deserves the accolades, but but a raise/extension will not happen until this chapter is complete.

For Sexton, you are probably right, for UT, the longer this dance goes on...just saying, clock is ticking Danny, get it done.

The fans gave him the environment he asked for..... and then some.

Even the larger stadiums in SEC haven't provided the excitement LNF did this weekend.
I watch a lot of baseball, the fans were “accountable “ this weekend...
that said, as Vandy Fan Mike Rapp pointed out, they expect super regionals, so why bother?

They would say, you got lucky this year, enjoy it, happy for ya, except they don’t.

Make no mistake. We Are Crashing The Party! We were not invited, we climbed the ladder and they can’t handle the rain, all we can do is keep on Animal House style!!!!

Legoooooooooooooo!!!!
