    Probably has trouble coaching with those Vietnam-like flashbacks of Lofton shooting the ball higher than a Colquitt punt over his NBA hall of famer to sink him.

    I liked Pearl. Kids like Lofton and Smith were allowed to launch, so there is a valid point about him being a good coach simply due to motivation and how he allows for bs shots, which shooters need to take almost arrogantly, and you think back at how many times lofton or smith hit a couple long bombs late. Made Pearl the winning coach in many games, but was all about Chris freaking Lofton bein ice cold killer and Pearl allowing it to happen whereas most coaches reel it in and waste it. Not many in college at that time pulled up from as deep as Lofton and he saved us so many times

    Also had half the team driving around with weed and filed off firearms because they figured a former teammate was gonna try to kill them

    I mean, I hope he and I are both wrong, but as of now I don't see any way around winning the tournament.

    Guess that means let's just win the thing.

    Anything is possible in the smoke-filled room, but I wouldn’t bet on anything less than winning it

    I think winning on Saturday means we only need 2 tourney wins. That'll be 20 wins. I believe we have a shot then.

    We're defintely off the NIT bubble. Got that covered.

    We will likely be the 8 seed in the SECT. We could get to the 6 or 7 (dunno how tiebreakers play out), but regardless, it's going to be a steep climb.

    Memphis State, A&M, SC, and Auburn losses will haunt this team. Win 2 of those and I think we are in decent shape.

    From VQ

    "If Tennessee can take care of the Tigers at home they’ll head to Nashville at 18-13 and 10-8 in the SEC. In that scenario, the Vols would probably need to win at least two games to feel safe. It’s possible that 19-14 would do it, but people we’ve spoken to close to the program feel like that would be dicey."

    I think the 3 more wins scenario gives a coin flip chance. This team doesn't seem good enough for me to be pissed if they get left out, though.

    19 is the target with a chance and 20 is in. Saturdays game couldnt be bigger.

    There’s probably 80 teams that are all more or less the same that they’ll fill out the bottom 20 of the field from and all of them (especially us) have enough “shoulda won” games that none should complain too much.*

    Didnt think we would be in this spot once Turner didnt look right and Vescovi was in Australia. Crazy year.
