  1. FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Tennessee did something special in limiting Arkansas guard Mason Jones to only nine points in early February. Just how special it was became entirely evident Wednesday. Jones — the SEC’s leading scorer — torched the Vols for 40 minutes, but dialed up his play in the final 14 minutes. He converted a three-point play after Tennessee got within two in the second half and dominated the final run with a barrage of devastating 3-pointers. "That is as good a performance as we have seen all year against us," Vols coach Rick Barnes said. Tennessee lost at Arkansas for the sixth straight time as Jones scored 37 points in the 86-69 defeat. "We just weren’t good enough tonight defensively to win the game on the road," Barnes said. Jordan Bowden led Tennessee (15-13, 7-8 SEC) with 19 points. Bowden, John Fulkerson and Yves Pons combined for 46 of UT’s 69 points at Arkansas (18-10, 6-9). Tennessee was 17 of 27 at the free-throw line and 4 of 17 from 3-point range. Bowden made all four.
  2. BASEBALL: Unbeaten No. 19 Vols thrash UNC Asheville, 12-1 247SPORTS.COM Another day, another blowout win for the Tennessee baseball team. Still waiting to see SEC play but still impressive so far
  3. I would agree with this article. Don't be surprised though who may start and who who may actually finish the year. Think AJ and Joey Matthews in 2000. I think you see something similar this season. No proof. Just a feeling Offseason Outlook: Why the Vols' QB situation is so fascinating 247SPORTS.COM With the recruiting class in the books and spring practice just around the corner, GoVols247 is breaking down the current state of each position on Tennessee's roster.
  4. They had this and yes should have won. Still this team is really missing that lead general. Lamont Turner is missed greatly. It is what it is. They're weak in areas. That's obvious. I won't kick this team though. Any team that loses so many players is gonna struggle. If you want hate, cue up the Facebook group crazies. I'm a realist. I'm reserved this team will be much better next season. You see flashes of great talent. It's just gonna take time. Unfortunately, some vol fans don't have patience.
  5. Tennessee baseball goes from unranked to No. 19 after 7-0 start.#Vols went 3-0 in Texas over the weekend, beating No. 1 Texas Tech, Houston and Stanford
  6. Yeah and I am like you on the upcoming games. Should be interesting to see how they match up against South Carolina and other SEC teams. They look good though thus far.
  7. Hear what Barnes had to say:

    Dem Primary

    Anyone voting for government control should be scared. I cannot support anyone that supports government dependence. I'll vote against that every time.

    The BaseVols beat Stanford 7-2

    Baseball team looks great
  10. Reading social media calling to fire Barnes. Man talk about a special kind of stupid
  11. It's early in the season but still impressive. Congrats to the base Vols!

    Raised him right!

    The pay for teachers is abysmal. I find it terrible. That is one area where all parties have failed tremendously. The other issue is the moral decay and lack of accountability in public shools has made it just a hostile environment who would want to teach? The country has created this problem themselves and have only them and their elected officials to blame.

    Dem Primary

    I will stay Independent but will definitely will still lean right fiscally and globally but middle morally as an independent. In my case there is no way I could vote for anyone in the Dem party.
  14. he Lady Vols battled in the fourth quarter and managed to trim a 16-point deficit into just four points, but the comeback came up short in an 83-75 loss to Arkansas. Tennessee (17-9, 7-6) lost its fifth game in a row, while Arkansas (21-5, 9-4) kept itself in the hunt for a double bye in the SEC tourney. Rae Burrell led the Lady Vols with 21 points, while Rennia Davis notched 18 points. Amber Ramirez led Arkansas with 29 points, while Alexis Tolefree tallied 22 points. Tennessee led 12-9 at the 4:13 media timeout in the first quarter with 10 points in the paint and two at the free throw line. Tamari Key and Rennia Davis led the way with four points each at the rim. Arkansas’ Amber Ramirez tied it at 12-12 with a deep three after a defensive mistake by the Lady Vols and accounted for 10 of the Razorbacks first 12 points. The Razorbacks took an 18-16 lead at the end of the first quarter on a buzzer beater by Alexis Tolefree. Arkansas extended the lead to 21-16 in the second quarter as turnovers became an issue for Tennessee. Lou Brown found Davis inside to trim the lead to 21-18, but the Razorbacks pushed it to 24-18. By halftime, the Lady Vols trailed, 33-25. Tennessee also didn’t help its cause with 16 turnovers in the first 20 minutes. The miscues, along with some whistles, especially two offensive foul calls on Tennessee, seemed to rattle the Lady Vols. “I didn’t think we were tough enough in the first half,” Tennessee Coach Kellie Harper, citing turnovers and missed layups. “Play through adversity. You’ve got to play through it. We were frustrated and got a little soft.” Harper, whose engine never had to be started by her head coach – Pat Summitt famously said she would not coach effort – didn’t talk Xs and Os at halftime. “Talking wasn’t what happened if you want to know the truth,” Harper said. “We had some fight left in us in the second half.” The Lady Vols got to within four points, 40-36, in the third quarter, but the game unraveled on a series of possessions in 20 seconds, including a turnover on the in-bounds play after a Razorback bucket, to push the lead to 48-38. Tennessee trailed, 58-46, at the end of the third quarter.

  16. I'm thinking still NIT bound. This isn't a team ready for the tourney. Too many gaps. Sloppy play way too many times. Better to use this as a training session season and make way for next year. Bottom line and nothing against the players or Barnes but losing 4 leading best players would hurt anyone. I mean hell, look at North Carolina this year. They're worse. We hate to see it but it is what it is. Hope they play out the season strong.
  17. True on that lol
  18. I would agree with that. He can shoot the ball but I dont see him as a ball control leader. As Atomic said also I think he Turner was still there then who knows? This team might look different now
  19. Well deserved The University of Tennessee said Smith demonstrated an outstanding record of leadership by exhibiting exceptional courage, integrity and sportsmanship Tennessee Football's Trey Smith is winning accolades off the field after being named the 2020 Jason Witten Collegiate Man of the Year. The junior offensive lineman was one of the three finalists named back in December, going up against Air Force Academy senior quarterback Isaiah Sanders and Southern California senior wide receiver Michael Pittman. The University of Tennessee said Smith exemplified and demonstrated an outstanding record of leadership by exhibiting exceptional courage, integrity and sportsmanship. "One of the most dominant linemen in football, Smith was a Freshman All-American and is a two-time All-SEC performer who has had to fight his way back on the field after being diagnosed with blood clots in his lungs before the start of his sophomore season. His return to the field and excellent play this season has been an inspiration to his team," UT said
  20. Maybe if I one of the QBs catches lightning in a bottle or JG keeps his head out of his butt
