    Congrats Ken, Stefan, and other Hogs. A poorly officiated game (it's an SEC game, isn't it?) but a classic up and down game that could've gone on like that forever. I hope you guys win the tourney and shut up the people who say y'all don't belong. I still say your coach is coach of the year in the SEC

    I hate to be less than perfectly classy when you give such a gracious congratulations, but I just can't stand Bruce Pearl or his players.

    In any case, I'll be hoping that the Vols win every game they play except for games against Memphis and Arkansas!

    I cannot understand the acrimony that Bruce and the players to a lesser extent receive. Bruce is enthusiastic, and I know in the starch shirted world of college athletics, that isn't popular. He doesn't call out other coaches. He doesn't strike his players. He disciplines his players for things that get no discipline at other schools. He has a lot of pride in his school and is a class act.

    Bruce and the players do something that almost no one does anymore. During pregame introductions, after the national anthem, everyone sits and the people go back to their bench. Not Pearl and the Vols. They wait until the colors are retired (flag leaves the scene) which is what you're supposed to do. Bruce drills this into his players, and I appreciate him for it.

    But since you seem to like Ark and Mem, I could see why you're jealous..I mean, you don't like Pearl or the Vols :)

    Thank you, Tom. All three SEC tournament games today were excellent.

    Best wishes to the Volunteers in the NCAA tournament.

    They all count :) Mem's unbeaten streak and perfect record getting blemished certainly counted. Ark's loss at Tenn put them out of the West race. And Ark's win over TN stopped UT from sweeping the Reg season and tourney titles and may jeopardize a #1 seed in the tourney while helping Arks tourney resume. (I'd love it if Ark gets in and bumps out KY, but that'll never happen). So they all count :thumbs:
