Honestly, that may be the best thing for LV fans. As long as the LVs keep making the tourney, the AD has no incentive to make a coaching changeI will predict a 7-9 sec record for tenn AND no ncaa invite..im being seri9us here..i think Tennessee's ncaa post season play is in serious jeapordy
Did you see the Tennessee fan in the audience with the orange sport coat who stood up every time a referee made a call that didn't go Tennessee's way? He must have burned a lot of calories yelling at the top of his lungs. I know I don't like sitting next to fans like that!Watching UT play is like watching 3rd grade boys rec league teams play! The player has the ball the parents are screaming shoot it!
I think Jolette Law recruited a lot of the top ranked players. She’s always been an excellent recruiter. She’s now at So Carolina - just what they need, more top ranked kidsI just don't get why recruits want to go there. I don't care how great of a recruiter she is. If I'm a player, watching this and seeing this team not getting coached to the best of their abilities, I'm not going!
Who'da thunk we would see the day when UTenn men's team outshone the UConn men's team?The Tennessee AD brass is over the moon about finally having a great men's BB team. Who'da thunk we'd see the day that the Vols men's team overshadows the Lady Vols.
And in terms of programs needing remediation, they are 100 times more worried about football than WBB.
I will say that no matter what her coaching inadequacies, almost no one in all of WCBB has recruited better than Holly the past 3 years. Regardless of how many games she loses, there is no one who could replace her and recruit better. Now, getting the team to play better is a totally different discussion.The pro holly lovers on the summitt love to use the excuse that this team is young, but tennessee started 2seniors, 2 zophs and a fresh..kentucky also started 2 seniors, 2 sophs and a freshman..using youth as an excuse to losing is an easy way out instead of blaming the piss poor coaching
Doubtful. They have games against Georgia, Alabama and Arkansas. They should win all 3 or at the very lest 2/3. I think they lose to ND. They play Mississippi, Florida and Vandy twice. Those all should be wins. I can't see aTm beating them since aTm is a 1-trick pony (Chennedy Carter).I will predict a 7-9 sec record for tenn AND no ncaa invite..im being serious here..i think Tennessee's ncaa post season play is in serious jeapordy
Yes, I saw that. These two games makes me wish every questionable call was reveiwed real time like football and could be overturned by officials not on the floor. Also think refs need to be evaluated for performance and definitely not allowed to ref tournament game unless their performance is up to a certain standard. iMHO, None of the ref in these two games should be allowed to ref in tournament.You missed the foul called at the end of the ND game, I guess. Breanna Turner fell down and they called an unsportsmanlike foul on Louisville
Absolutely agree with you. Needs to be accountability. We shouldn't have to put up with incompetence from officials.Yes, I saw that. These two games makes me wish every questionable call was reveiwed real time like football and could be overturned by officials not on the floor. Also think refs need to be evaluated for performance and definitely not allowed to ref tournament game unless their performance is up to a certain standard. iMHO, None of the ref in these two games should be allowed to ref in tournament.
This is not a knock on Charlie’s perspective but let me offer another view:just another example of an undisciplined Tennessee team with all of it's highly ranked players losing to a team with far less talent....
I absolutely understand your pain, however who do you think the school will hire in 3 years, because there is very little chance of Fulmer firing Holly before her contract is up especially with all this young talent and 25 wins. There is NO ONE from the CPS coaching tree that warrants getting the Tenn job and I don’t see Philip Fulmer selecting anyone that isn’t a Tenn grad. Your thoughts are...?Amazingly, there are still a fair number of fans who back Warlick still, mostly older generation people who have had season tickets since the 90s. The local newspaper hasn't overtly turned against her yet.
I agree with you DBB, except on the last point.... I would suggest that with the talent advantage the Lady Vols have now and have had in the Holly era.... that winning in the SEC (yes even the SEC) should be relatively easyThis is not a knock on Charlie’s perspective but let me offer another view:
Collegiate coaching requires 3 skills-#1 player ability/talent (recruiting), #2 ability to improve player skills through practice (teaching/coaching) and #3 actual game management when playing an opponent (game coaching).
All top coaches say #1 is getting talent, #2 is improving the skill set of the players then #3 game coaching. You can almost always get 20+ wins with #1 but will be lucky to get 20+ wins only #2 or #3 every OTHER year, let alone every year. So for all of Holly’s faults, she is meeting the #1 Criteria and is getting 25+ wins. Look at JP McCallie, Hatchell, C Vivian Stringer or Doug Bruno and tell me who won more regularly?
I LOVE knocking Holly’s lack of developing and game coaching, mostly at the VolNation expense, however she does win at least 25 games a year in what until this year has been a top two conference which is extremely hard to do.
