As you know Buzz Peterson had this kid in the bag years ago. He also picked Bradshaw and he recruited Lofton when no one wanted him. If Buzz had stayed UT would've had Tyler this season and probably would've won the NCAA title. Coach Peterson had a plan and it was all set up.

Buzz Peterson is a great guy, but there is no way UT would have won an SEC Championship or a national championship with Buzz as the coach.

Another thing that would not have happened under Buzz Peterson.

As for the Buckeye fan you got beat too so you ain't so smart yourself. OSU is the team that blew it if ya ask me.

Now Oden is gone, what next ?

You are Maurice Clarette's jock washer. I had to throw that in there.

Oh please, Peterson could recruit but he couldn't motivate and he didn't inspire with his coaching style. Your comments are pure speculation. Look how the team performed his final year. There is no way based on their performance, energy level, and motivation that they would have did nearly as well as we have the last few under Coach Pearl. I wish Coach Peterson the best, he was supposed to be a very nice man, but I feel there is no evidence to support your claim. Go Vols!

buzz ball was horrible.... do you watch tennessee basketball? UT lost more close games in one season with Buzz as their coach than Pearl has lost in his entire career. Pearl brought in a top 5 recruiting class last year and you say that Buzz Peterson is the better recruiter? You are an embarrassment to UT basketball fans if you think Peterson is a better coach, and i hope you decide to actually watch basketball this year to see how Pearl molds this team into a championship contender.

Except for the fact that he and his teams were lazy and played ZERO defense. Wake the hell up!!!
