>As happy as I am to see the Vols make the Sweet 16, I still have to admit the outcome of last night’s game against Ohio State is frustrating.
Flashbacks of being in the Sweet 16 and slowly letting a lead erode away against North Carolina a few years ago haunt me.
That said, I think the Vols are in great shape headed into next year. Great coach who is a perfect fit (pay him whatever he wants to not bolt to Iowa), most of the team returning…it should prove to be an interesting year.
Who’d’ve ever thought that I’d be looking for to men’s UT basketball as much as I do the Lady Vols and football?
For that alone, they should give Bruce Perl coach of the year and start erecting a shrine to him outside Thompson-Boling Arena.
