Now it's Orange Throat Time:

Throaty...Awesome report.....How you continue to come up with great stuff in this season of very little is impressive. I'll match you riff for riff.

LADY VOLS SOFTBALL IS SIMPLY the most consistent program on that campus in athletics and it ain't even close. They are without a doubt the standard bearer these days of UT sports. Go Lady Vols!...[more]

RICK BARNES CAN MAKE A GOOD RECOVERY from a mediocre high school recruiting class for 2017 by adding Howard transfer James Daniel III, who should decide any day. JUCO Chris Darrington was a little more of a gamble because he uses a scholarship for two years. Daniel is a "house money" addition. You have a scholarship open for the 2017-18 school year and he can provide badly needed offense. We'll be happy to upgrade our description of the high school class if Yves Pons has a big impact next season.

COACH CLASSIFICATIONS: CBS recently revealed their third annual Power-5 Coaches Rankings (+Brian Kelly) in which Butch Jones tumbled almost 20 spots from 2016 (from 33 to 52). While believing that’s excessive it shows how the disappointment of the 2016 Tennessee Football season -exacerbated by Jones’s ridiculous corresponding sound bites- have soured the National pundits view on the quality of coach currently heading the Vol program.

In my mind, there are 15 established Power-5 Head Coaches that are clearly better than Butch and a handful of rising stars that I would prefer over him as well due to their high ceiling. Aside from that I think there are just a bunch of guys that are pretty good coaches whose appeal is determined by their latest season.

Here is how I would categorize the same 65 coaches that CBS ranked....[more]

FREE THOUGHT FRIDAY (Real Early Edition)

IF I COULD HAVE ATTENDED ANY SPORTING EVENT: Tony, Tom Marine and I did a fun show a couple of weeks back revealing what sporting events we would have loved to attended regardless of the venue or era in which they occurred. Here are my Final-4

4-Jackie Robinson’s MLB Debut: On April 15, 1947, the landscape of Major League baseball was forever changed as Jackie Robinson broke the game’s color barrier. I would hope that I would have been a compassionate white fan with the foresight to understand that an injustice had finally been righted. Had I have been raised in that era however I’m uncertain I could. I would certainly hope I wouldn’t have been the insufferable ass that Phillies Manager Ben Chapman was portrayed to be in the Movie 42.

GOOD TO BE BACK: After an extended break to reset the mechanism the Bean—blog is back and ready to roll. Not sure how many smart pills I’ll be dispensing and we’ll take a few one-week spring and summer breaks so there’s enough information available to fill the space but I appreciate your understanding and it’s good to be back

FINAL TAKE ON SPRING PRACTICE: I’ve always contended that spring practice -regardless of the institution conducting it- is all about young players and coaches with little to gain for veterans or fans. Almost nothing of substance emerges to give you a true feel for what is to come in the fall. That aside it does give football fanatics a tofu-like appetizer and if I dig front-end loader deep here is what I drew:
