Sorry I missed you right here yesterday. Been a long while since I've missed a day. I clocked in with a 102.7 degree fever Tuesday afternoon into the night. Completely knocked me out. Sorry about that. I really take pride in trying to put something thoughtful up here daily along with the usual # of interesting links I can find.

We were on the air last night for 2.25 hours after UT's huge win over LSU. Thanks to Smartway and Dalton Bearing and Hydraulics for providing sponsorship for our efforts. I've had a wonderful time postgame with you talking UT football and hoops. Yes, we will be live following ever basketball game plus every football game including Spring Game + Summer Open Workout) in 2015. It's been such a great time....[more]

It's pretty predictable. Once the basketball season turned sour, the rumors are starting to kick up hot and heavy. Tons of folks around town are buzzing about Donnie Tyndall and his prospects of being here. I know people mean well (or maybe they don't) but everybody has a source inside UT's athletic department. And everybody knows the scoop. But the truth is that nobody knows. We are in the same place that we were literally back in the fall when this first came to light. In fact, we may know less now than we did then. Simply because there's so much misinformation out there. That it's taken this long in the basketball season to get back to the 'REAL STORY' is a real tribute to those kids on that team. They gave it EVERYTHING they have to make it super interesting through a couple of months....[more]

VOL HOOPS PROGRESS REPORT Saturday night at The Tad Pad was the most disappointing night of the Donnie Tyndall era so far for me. I want so badly for this team to make the NIT and be rewarded for the over-the-top effort they have displayed throughout what has been a trying season filled with adversity and uncertainty. Yet with every close loss in tossup games that hope –once firmly in their grasp- slips further and further away. It feels as if Mississippi State and Ole Miss conspired to deliver a Magnolia State mauling to Tennessee’s once pleasantly surprising season. I now believe it will take wins in three of their remaining four contests or a couple of wins in the SEC Tournament both of which seem unlikely considering the Vols undermanned roster and their inability to make shots under seemingly any circumstance.

I’m not sure what I expected...[more]

NOT MUCH THIS WEEK: I apologize for this week’s abbreviated blog. The power went out in Beanoland Monday at 9pm and wasn’t restored until late Wednesday evening so I had little time to devote to this week’s sport’s world. As if there was ever any doubt I now know unequivocally I AM NOT a candidate to intentionally go off the grid.

QUITE FRANKLY COLLEGE BASKETBALL SUCKS: Though I prefer a College Football Saturday and can more closely relate to baseball and the challenges that game’s players face I do still love College Basketball. It is not an unconditional love however and if the pace, flow and player skill set doesn’t improve the day is coming when I won’t even be mildly fond of it. The game has become too physical, too perimeter oriented, too coach orchestrated while taking too dang long to play....[more]

BLOGGER GENERAL’S WARNING: The following blog segment contains half-truth, stereotypes which are generally the product of ignorant intolerance. I would like to say “I’m sorry” in advance to Vandy fans I know and like such as Vandy Joe, Doc C and uh, well, uh, I guess that’s about all of em. For everyone else sit back while I spew some healthy hate and venom:

BEATING VANDY IS LIKE CANDY: OK, I’ll admit it, I have a problem; I HATE Vandy Basketball with every fiber of my being. I hate their team regardless of who dons the uniform and their coach regardless if his name is Richard Schmidt or Kevin Stallings (who I’m sure in my wildest Show Your Gold hating moments I’ve referred to as Dick and well… That + Head). I hate that hell-hole they call a gymnasium with its stupid raised floor and equally ridiculous bench arrangement. I hate the fact that regardless of whether they have a team that pounds it inside or hoists threes for 40 minutes they wear a path marching to the free throw line 30 times a night while their opponents are lucky to shoot 10....[more]
