Bruce Pearl is everywhere. After being at Tennessee for 3 seasons, we all know this about him. We expect it. He is always quick with great stories and clever one-liners that keep us all entertained and begging for more. On Thursday night however, it was Pearl in the unfamiliar position as the butt of the jokes at a $200 a plate benefit at the Knoxville Convention Center.
My personal favorite came from Dane Bradshaw who was in town after finishing his first pro season overseas:
“People always ask if I’m going to come back to UT and get into coaching,” Bradshaw said. “I had a great opportunity to learn under such a great instructor, disciplinarian and teacher of the game … but we’re not here to talk about Pat Summitt tonight.”
Good fun for a great cause!
The Solution. The buzz continues about Bobby Maze. If you’ve been out of the loop for the past couple of days, you can find everything you need to know in one of our Bobby Maze threads in the forum. Yesterday’s audio interview is a must — very entertaining.
Vols Baseball on the ropes. I urge everyone to get out and support the Vols baseball team this weekend in their crucial series with Kentucky at Lindsey Nelson Stadium. Only the top eight teams in the conference will advance to the SEC Tournament and the Vols and the Wildcats are currently tied for 8th place. It’s the final home series for Tennessee before they head to South Carolina to finish the regular season. Game times are Friday at 7pm, Saturday at 1pm and Sunday at 2pm. You can purchase tickets online.
