I am really proud of our guys. They kept Butler from scoring a lot of trey's. I just love watching them play; especially JuJuan and Wayne!
If you ask Coach Pearl and the players they will tell you the fans are who they play for; so I would think that gives us (the fans) a right to say "we". I can't wait for the game Thursday night even though it is going to be a late one.

The men's team has not stolen anything from the Lady Vols; and yes I did see them win over Oral Roberts. Alexis was awesome in the 2nd half; she so reminds me of JuJuan. Coach Pearl is a class act and he always includes Coach Summit and Coach Fulmer when his team makes the news.

Lets be reasonable Gordon Howell is not a top 4 team in the country point guard at no time. Prince could be super player but he is a smart axx always pushing and shoving for no reason getting too many cheap fouls and trying to look too good, he is not a top 4 team point guard. Could with a attitude adjustment. In order to go to the final four or national title a point guard will have to step up. Just facts.
Thanks for the brilliant insight, Jack... do you have any stock tips?

Totally sickening the way this no where bunch has stolen the Lady Vols thunder. I bet y'all hardly noticed they whupped up Oral Roberts bad last night !
Time for the spot light to be shined on the team that matters. 8th time champions soon !
They should do away with the field of 64 in women's fake ball... The last 15 - 20 teams have no business in the tourney... Should start with 48 teams maybe less.

Am I the only one that thinks we may play better offensively if the coach would substitute a little less? I don't see the team getting any kind of rhythm on offense because Coach Pearl is running players in and out constantly. But that's just my opinion.

Yes Pat is a good coach and the lady vols do well, but lets face it. They are not even close to being as entertaining and stealing your heart like the boys. People get tired of watching a team that can blow everyone away and not really have a game. The boys games keep you at the edge of your seat the whole game. I have watched the boys even when they were losing, and them being as good as they are now makes them even more enticing to watch.

You gotta be kidding the boys do not have one player that puts the effort of the best player in SEC girls basketball Alex Hornbuckle.

<quoted text>Apparently you did not watch the game. At least with your eyes open. Butler beat THEMSELF, pitiful playing on both sides. Oh, I see you keep saying "WE", I must have missed seeing you on the court, now just what was YOUR jersey number? What I thought. It is THEY won, not WE moron. Go back to UT and learn basic grammar. You jerks just can’t wait to say “WE” when you had absolutely NOTHING to do with how “OUR Team” performed. It is our team that WE support, they: the team and Coaches, do ALL the hard and difficult work. By the way, I personally hope they end up number 1, they, of all teams, have worked for it. But in true Tennessee style, they let their swollen heads get in the way of their excellent talent. Pat Head does not allow her team to have a swollen head complex; she deals with it on the spot. That, my friend, is why she is successful. She fully understands what not to do. Get it?
Rather than Coach Pearl and his team whining about what seed they where, he should have been drilling his players to show all the talking heads that they were wrong, appears the talking heads were correct with their placement of the teams
Evidently THEY lack grammar books in Helenwood.

GO VOLS!!!

48 other teams DIDN'T make the Sweet 16...

Jealous?

When you consider the fact that they barely out scored a bunch of "White Boys", the next game will be their last.#2 seed. What a pathetic joke for a basketball team, just like UT @ Knoxville, simply an over rated Community College.

People complain about Tennessee. They complain if Tn wins, they complain if Tn loses. If you say your a fan and you complain if your team wins, you don't even have a right to watch. All I can say is, watch another team play, and leave Tn alone. Thank you very much. GO BIG ORANGE!!!!!
P.S. If people think it is so easy to win, let them go to Tn and play with the big boys. LOL

Where do you think the stamina comes from? We out run our opps every game. The players stay fresh.

You have 4 time out for each team per half (8) 6 TV time out. I think that is enough time to rest play your best 5 and get the show on the road. Your play your best 5 until the game is won unless one is goofing off.
