  1. Tennessee snapped Toledo's 17-game win streak to advance to its second straight Sweet 16, defeating the Rockets in Thompson-Boling Arena on Monday, 94-47. Five players were in double digits for Tennessee (25-11, 13-3 SEC) with sophomores Sara Puckett and Jillian Hollingshead leading the scoring with 13 each. Seniors Rickea Jackson and Jasmine Powell each turned in 12, and senior Jordan Horston posted 10.
  2. https://atozsports.com/nashville/charles-barkley-tennessee-vols-win-duke-news/ Looking at their next matchup. Could we possibly see elite 8?
  3. I'm in ponte vedra. We don't have tolls but I hear ya. If I could go home, I'd already be there. Desantis president? Actually I'd love it but think he stays governor. I'd vote for him though.
  4. I wish I could go home but my job keeps me here in Florida. At least we have the best governor in the country. Good luck going home
  5. Vols beat duke. While I'm surprised, I'll say I was wrong. Great game. Looking at the next matchup, Tennessee should be in the elite 8. Sometimes, it's who you play that dictates your success. Great job boys. ORLANDO, Fla. -- Tennessee is headed to the Sweet 16 because it loves playing in "the mud." That's the Vols' term for the tough, physical and sometimes ugly style of basketball they play. They don't apologize or make excuses for it. It's who they are. "That's what we do," forward Olivier Nkamhoua said. "We're a tough, hard-nosed team. That's how we play everybody." Duke coach Jon Scheyer talked about that on Friday heading into Saturday's second-round NCAA tournament matchup at Amway Center. But knowing it was coming didn't make it any easier, and the Vols battered the Blue Devils throughout their 65-52 victory. "Knowing that they had a lot of freshmen, we knew that if we come in and apply more pressure and be tough and physical, then they would have to deal with it," Nkamhoua said. "What we were saying before the game the whole time is we were going to bring them into the mud with us and make them play a tough, hard-nosed game and see if they were ready for it." They weren't. The box score doesn't accurately portray just how physical things were. Duke forward Kyle Filipowski had to leave the game for a few moments in the first half after taking an elbow in the face from Tennessee forward Jonas Aidoo that left a mark on his left cheek that was still visible after the game.
  6. Vols will take on Duke at 2:40 pm EST Saturday, March 18 on CBS.
  7. After last night it was almost 1 and done. They won't make it playing like this.....
  8. funny because he reminds of the guy from that era.... Joey Kent
  9. Former Tennessee defensive tackle Shy Tuttle reached a deal with the Carolina Panthers on Monday afternoon. Tuttle lands a three-year, $19.5 million deal with Carolina that includes $13 million guaranteed once the contract is signed, per ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
  10. Tennessee football wide receiver Jalin Hyatt received the Biletnikoff award yesterday. Tennessee Volunteer football is starting to be well known as WRU, also known as Wide Receiver university. The play on words describes how good the Vols WR room is starting to become, and it stems from Jalin Hyatt’s breakout season last year. Hyatt won the Biletnikoff Award and was named the nation’s best WR, following his 1,267 yards & 15 touchdown season. Hyatt is very familiar with breaking records and making a name for himself. Last season, Jalin was a unanimous All-American for the first time in the previous 14 years of Tennessee football. What is the Biletnikoff Award? According to the Biletnikoff Award official website: “The Biletnikoff Award is presented annually to the season’s outstanding college football receiver regardless of position by the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation, Inc., (TQCF)… The TQC Foundation, Inc., joined the idea of a college receiver’s award to the organization’s vision and created the outstanding award and dynamic organization. The trophy, presented to each winner, is the most beautiful in college football – it has won several national awards for design excellence and aesthetic appeal.” It is a great honor for the former Tennessee football receiver to achieve this award. He has paved the way for future Vols on what it takes to receive such a high honor. What does this award mean for Hyatt’s future? Being awarded the Biletnikoff boosted Hyatt’s draft stock and created tons of hype around him before performing at the NFL Combine. All eyes were on Hyatt over the Combine weekend, and he performed exceptionally well read on: Tennessee Football: Jalin Hyatt receives the Biletnikoff Award, more ALLFORTENNESSEE.COM Tennessee football wide receiver Jalin Hyatt received the Biletnikoff award yesterday.

  13. NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- — First-year coach Dennis Gates is in a hurry to turn Missouri into champions and remains unhappy his Tigers missed the Southeastern Conference's regular-season title. Now they're targeting the program's first SEC Tournament crown and must go through the league's regular season champ to get there. Nick Honor hit a 3-pointer with 1:45 left to put Missouri ahead to stay, and the 25th-ranked Tigers beat No. 17 Tennessee 79-71 Friday to reach the SEC Tournament semifinals for the first time since joining the league in 2012. “We wanted to cut down nets, hold trophies, hang banners as the regular-season champs," said Gates, who was hired last March. “I credit Nate Oats and his program for their successes. It has taken too long for us to be able to do that, and I want it more." The Tigers (24-8) will play fourth-ranked Alabama on Saturday. The Crimson Tide, the regular-season champ, never trailed beating Mississippi State 72-49 earlier Friday. Shortly after this latest victory, Missouri announced a one-year contract extension for Gates through the 2028-29 season. Missouri won its fifth straight this season to snap a three-game skid in the SEC quarterfinals. The Tigers did it by knocking off the defending tourney champ in a taut game featuring 15 ties and 11 lead changes. The last tie was at 69, and Honor put Missouri ahead to stay with his 3. Gates credited Honor with telling him during a timeout to give him a ball screen. “Sometimes you don’t listen to your players. I listen to mine," Gates said. "We gave him a ball screen, and he was able to knock down a big-time 3-point shot.” read more: https://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/recap/_/gameId/401519353
  14. I think I swing back and forth on this. I think Rick Barnes is a terrific coach. I think though injuries had to play a little in this. Losing Ziegler didnt help at all. Messed with the chemistry. Still, there is something missing. There is no Admiral or Grant Williams on this team. Talented? Yes. There is something missing though. I am not sure what it is. I would be scared what Tennessee would get if Barnes wasn't there. It could get a LOT worse more than better. TOUGH CALL!
  15. Unfortunately that's a true statement. Thinking one or two and done in the tourney.
