re: Group of frontrunners emerging in Tennessee search, interviews to begin soon - ohiovol

[quote]They're willing to spend 2 mil on the right coach from what I understand. Or in the 1.7/8+ range to begin with and then talks of raises/extensions based on performance going forward.[/quote] Why not just keep Martin then? They obviously just don't care all that much. If the right coach...

[quote]So Tennessee is kind of serious about getting a good coach, but not 2 mil serious? You get what you pay for mostly. [/quote] Agreed. And if we aren't willing to pay more, why run off Martin?...

Can we stop pretending like making the NCAA tournament is a big deal? - ohiovol
Why do people here act like it's some major accomplishment to make it into the NCAA tournament? Shouldn't that be the damn baseline? Tennessee fans aren't asking for a lot. We don't expect to win as much as Kentucky or Florida with Donovan. But since the field expanded to 32, Tennessee has made t...
