    Unfortunately I had to work throughout the whole game, so I wasn't aware til I clocked out shortly after 4:00, but it sounded like a totally dominating win. Agreed as well about the game in Lexington. I knew they'd be very difficult to defeat up there, but the Wildcats were very impressive in the win. I muted it there in the second half because Jay Bilas talking about Kentucky was even more annoying than John Madden talking about Brett Favre. Here's hoping for a big win in Auburn, then an SEC Tournament Championship

    Great win today as Tennessee dismantled Kentucky. Hopefully this gets thing back on track heading into the tourney.

    Texas A&M is up next at 8:00 on Saturday night! I'm trying to make it to a weekday game or two at Thompson Boling Arena this season. Maybe Vanderbilt and/or South Carolina in a few weeks. I'd really like to go to Senior Night, as well, to help honor the great work these young men have done.

    Tennessee moves to number 1 in the AP poll!

    I think at this point it's going to be Sarkisian.

    He clearly agreed with you. Going into the season, I didn't think this would be his last year coaching though. Despite him winning against UT more than he lost, I always thought that Mark Richt seemed like a very good person. I wish him & his family the best in retirement.

    Sunday was the first win over a #1 ranked opponent in basketball since 2010 for Rick Barnes and his team!

    I went to Colorado on vacation earlier this year, including the University of Colorado campus. Beautiful campus in an incredible area. Their facilities are nice, plus they've had success in the past, so hopefully Tucker does very well out there. Gary Barnett had some good teams in the early 2000's, although not as good as what they had under Dan McCartney in the late 1980's - early 1990's.

    I agree with everything you said. The Vanderbilt game was one of the few games I've ever just quit watching early because of how putrid the performance was. I didn't need that kind of negativity in my life.

     I'll take your word on that man. I definitely don't doubt it at all, especially volnation. I avoid that site as much as possible because I don't need that kind of negativity in my life

    Agreed that the last two weeks have been a disappointment after righting the ship but I have been overall impressed with Pruitt’s rookie year as head coach.  He got off to a rocky start personally but seems to be growing into the job nicely and getting control of his temper - won’t say something in a press conference that will hurt his team either.
    Pruitt hired a good staff and as long as recruiting continues to improve, he will eventually get UT to 8-10 wins most years.

    I watched some of the lopsided losses all the way through this season, such as Florida, Georgia, Alabama, but quit watching this one early in the 4th quarter. Horrible way to go into the off season. Pruitt needs multiple years to fix this mess.
    I guess part of the problem over the years is that when you have fools like Jimmy Cheek, Mike Hamilton & Dave Hart in charge, they'll hire idiots every bit as useless as they are, like Lane Kiffin, Derek Dooley & Butch Jones, who then leave the program in shambles. For what it's worth, a Derek Dooley or Butch Jones coached team likely would've probably finished 3-9.
    Another thing I thought about again tonight is that Jimmy Haslam ran the Cleveland Browns even more into the ground than they already were. He, along with the rest of his family, are doing the same to UT Football. They were probably the ones who forced Mike Hamilton to fire Fulmer, which kinda got the ball rolling on this stretch of awfulness. But at least the basketball team should do well this year....

    Understand completely where you’re coming from. Man if Tennessee somehow makes a bowl game they might as well go ahead and name a street after Pruitt haha.

    Congrats on a quality win IMO. My wife's a UT grad and was happy to see how this one played out for you... even if it did tank our general strength of schedule a bit.

    More than likely not, but it's definitely better than going winless in SEC play like last season.
    I got back home from Neyland Stadium a little while ago. It was a bit chilly, but a great team win today. Naturally Kentucky fans said things like "enjoy your losing season" & "just wait til basketball" on their way out.

    A couple good steps were taken yesterday: Win an SEC game, beat someone that they're not supposed to beat. I'm sure Alabama will blow out Tennessee, but games like South Carolina, Kentucky & Missouri seem much more winnable now after yesterday's performance.

    I hate that I had to miss this one, since I work 7-4 every Saturday, but I'm definitely happy to finally get an SEC win. The fact that it was over a top 25 team on the road is even better. Thankfully I got to listen to some of the first half on my lunch break & follow the rest on my phone.

    And he just got embarrassed by Duke at home. Does GT just not care about winning? I mean, they have Josh Pastner as Basketball Coach too

    Is there a another upper echelon team in the country that has two tougher "main rivals" right now than Auburn though?  granted, AU wasn't very good against UGA the last 10 years even with Dawgs just being good(not great).

    Big time win for Coach Pruitt in year one, hoping there’s 3 more somewhere on the schedule.
