I like the way things are going. If the staff they have in place can't get it turned around I'm not sure it will ever happen. 

If you get Darnell Wright, which seems likely,  you have two potential great OTs for three years and OL should get better.  Got a good RB.   Need a better QB.

So happy to see this. Way to go, Tennessee guys!

I saw this and just had to. Sorry  

I wish $2.5-3.75 million was a low number for me.

Fingers crossed on Wright. QB is a huge question mark. We have Harrison Bailey coming in 2020 which I think will be a huge upgrade but who knows if he is ready to compete as a freshman.

no reason to have your fingers crossed.. his coach is making it impossible for team's not named tennessee recruit him.. it's one thing for a coach to try and encourage a kid to go somewhere, but to take over and act like a handler is ridiculous and i would say that if it helped the Dawgs.  pathetic.  harrison is an interesting thing since chaney doesn't care for him much at all.  in fact chaney passed on harrison.  tee martin btw is a good hire for recruiting, but he is a pretty poor coach.  one of the worst on the field coaches that keeps getting hired, he is right there with jancek when it comes to positional group hires.  tee martin though will help out in recruiting because chaney gives you nothing there.

Yeah Tee is going to be a help on recruiting front, although this staff is already fairly loaded with good recruiters. I am curious to see how the Harrison/Chaney relationship goes. We offered a QB out of Texas today so we'll see.

yeah if pruitt gives chaney a choice i can see him going after other qbs and stop recruiting harrison completely.  i know a lot of staffs passed on harrison and I wonder if chaney wil do the same.  a lot depends on how much power does he have.  if pruitt thinks getting harrison helps with arik gilbert he is in for a rude awakening.. i don't see anyway arik doesn't end up in athens.  hiring of hartley helps us where we might get 2 top 6 tes this upcoming class.

GG Tennessee hoops fans...

Hated that travel call at the end, but it's hard to complain too much when you go 8/18 from the line. Glad we were the one team who made y'all sweat a bit!!

Man what a game. I hated that travel call too, no one wants to see a game end that way. Tennessee had no answer for Petty in the second half, that guy was killing them.

It was definitely a fun game. Petty is very hot and cold, but he plays hard every night. The travel call did suck, but you lose the ability to complain about that when you go 8/18 from the line. 

Really thought UT was about to run us out of the gym early on. Wouldn't want to face y'all in March. Feel pretty certain we know who the number 1 team in the land will be come Monday

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.

Nervous about the A&M game, hope they can keep it rolling.

I heard that the referees in Baton Rouge were terrible, but regardless of the officiating, defeating LSU would've been a great road win. I didn't see any of it on account of work though. Losing in Lexington isn't a huge shock, but hopefully that loss didn't expose UT's deficiencies too badly.

That Kentucky game didn't surprise me at all. That was a perfect storm Tennessee walked into. The LSU game was disappointing. I think a little fatigue has set in and is causing them to make some mental errors that just weren't there earlier in the year. Hopefully they can regroup and finish out the season strong.
