@John at MrSEC

I stand corrected for making a brash overstatment of where TN stood during the preseason and I will do a better of job with statment of facts my facts in future posts.  While TN was not ranked in the AP preseason poll it was ranked by The Sporting News, CBS and a couple of other services and the perception has been that teams under Coach Martin and this team particularly has under performed and been inconsitant throughout the season until now.  Enjoy the website, enjoy your engagment with the readers.  Thanks.

Ok so I will be the first to admit that I signed the online petition for what it was worth and I have been critical of Martin for the past two seasons for what appears at times to be under performing and streaky play of his teams.  However, I am impressed with the team's play in the NCAA tournament.  It is the type of play that people expected with a preseason #5 ranking.  I think Coach Martin has more than proved he deserves an extension based on what this team has accomplished thus far.  Here's to a nice run in the NCAA tournament and a few of more wins this season.

TN did not get a tournament bid.  It was given one more chance to earn a tournament bid with a play-in game.

TN worst nightmare is Pearl on another SEC sideline winning fans support and beating TN.  However, I agree with the _voice that it would make firing Martin and looking for the next TN coach a lot less complicated.  


HoustonVol is correct, Coach Martin is no Bruce Pearl.  Two early NIT exits and a bubble team this year with one of the most talented TN teams ever has not convinced me that Coach Martin is capable of returning TN to the level of success or excitement that TN experienced under Bruce Pearl or deserving of another year.  Coach Pearl's availability is irrelevant, but if push came to shove I would not be disappointed or outraged to see one bare chested, orange blazer wearing coach back on the TN sideline.
