Funny how UTK fans hate their basketball coach, Martin who has won OVER 60% of his games! and love their football coach! Butchy who has LOST 60% of his games as Vol coach. . . .
Disagree with you on the Sport King re: MacKenzie arena. I would blow it up, but replace it with an 8,000 seat on campus state of the art facility. . . .If the CITY of Chattanooga wanted to build a new arena, near Finley Stadium of 13,000 to 15,000, then the powers that be could knock themselves out. Wouldnt be fair to put that size arena, which would ultimately be an albatross on the University as a dumping ground, with the highly outside chance of hosting an NCAA game
Question for Friday : How boring would March Madness be if the football powers screwed it up and broke away from NCAA and formed 4 "power" conferences of 16 teams and all 64 made the tourney ?
That was a cool story Uch did on the "Wades Bunch" / Brady Bunch
again, funny that UTK Vol fans hate their Basketball coach who has won over 60% of his games and love their football coach who has LOST 60% of his games ? . . .it is East Tennessee and hopefully its not because one is called Butch and the other Cuonzo . . .
Best BBall coaches :
Jay- do you find it interesting that UTK Johnny Vol fans love their football coach, who has a losing record and hate their basketball coach who has a winning record ? ?
and Jay, i love you brother, love your paper, but . .with being on the cusp of March Madness, 5 top 25 teams losing last night, NFL combine and Baseball spring training starting, the feature story this morning is on "songs" ? SONGS ? . . . .good times
Jay- for the mailbag, How can UTK work out a re-hire of Pearl, if NCAA says no since show-cause doesnt expire til August ?
Best living actor comes from Morgan Freeman, Redford, Deniro, Pacino . . . .and Johnny Knoxville
Final Four Kansas, Syracuse, Arizona, Florida. . . .wanted to say Wichita St., but cant root for Gregg Marshall because he is such an &%$@*%#
Jay- Pearl's show cause expires in August. Help me understand, so does that meean that if UTK wanted to hire Pearl in April, it would have to petition or appeal to the NCAA to get permission to hire Pearl ? or does it mean he CANT be hired until after August ?
Hey Bispy4, too bad next year GSU. . .er, Waffle House U will be getting hammered in basketball in the SunBelt, traveling from Louisiana to Texas to Arkansas. But hey at least you will be playing football in the "witness protection" program of the FBS and can get a bowl game. . . oh sorry, last year 3 SunBelt teams qualified for a bowl and didnt get invited. . . well good luck with that move
Mocs vs. Georgia Southern aka "Waffle House U" will be a tough matchup. Jelani Hewitt, SoCon leading scorer and Tre Bussey have combined to make 125 3pointers. . . . .but Jay, your right even the most optimistic Moc fan would never have predicted the Mocs would be 10-2 at this point, WOW what a great job Will Wade has done !
Jay- I actually feel sorry for the Conz, He is now probably going to win enough games, with the easy schedule and how week the SEC is to make the NCAA tourney. The problem is the fair-weather UTK fans who get mad when they lose a game. Those fans who think that the solution is to simply "dial up" Bruce Pearl. . .THAT SHIP HAS SAILED AND CANT COME BACK, no matter how many names you get on a petition. If Conz makes the NCAA tourney, at that point you almost have to give him a contract extension even though that wont sit well with the UTK fair weather fans, as evidence by the empty seats last night. . .WOW what a mess
