    Elders on this site: Does Brian Steele remind you of Bill Verneau? For the younger gen, Bill played in the 80s and was not as talented as his teammates, however any time he was called upon he gave 100% and could knock down the 3. He bacame a cult favorite and energized the team and crowd whenever he walked on the court at the Frank Maguire Arena...thougths?

    Steele's contribution yesterday included an amazing assist, a rebound and putback, and then a stone cold heartbreak 3 with 19 seconds on the clock.

    A really, really tough matchup for the Cocks today, considering all the size UT has. UT is also playing very well, in their past 3 games they have straight destroyed teams by an average of 31 points. Big Chat is going to have to ball out, it would be great if he can somehow draw fouls like he did yesterday to get at least 1 of UT's bigs in foul trouble. Kacinas and Carrera are going to be overmatched, they've just got to play with great effort.

    We're also going to need some of that sharpshooting we had against Auburn.

    This isn't even taking into account Jordan McRae, who is the Vols best player.

    No matter what happens I'm proud of the guys for making it here. Let's go out there and fight tooth and nail today.
    Actually, it only takes one drink to get me loaded. Trouble is, I can't remember if it's the thirteenth or fourteenth.

    That 3 before the half was a really bad decision. He should have never shot that ball. Nice that it went in but you dont shoot that ball with more than a couple secs left on the clock in that situation.

    I think Verneau was a little taller but maybe not as thick. I remember him hitting shots at the top of the key. There are some similar traits.

    I would love a win today but if we don't these last couple of weeks have been fun and gives us some hope for the future. But let's keep this thing going. Hit some 3's, minimum turnovers, and rebound, we have a shot.

    Yeah, Stokes and Maymon are tough matchups for us. Agree with you in that LChat needs to keep playing well. This is a game where we really need Henry to step up and give some good minutes.

    It's gonna be tough, but if we keep playing like we have for the last few games, we could win this. Win or lose, I want UT to know they were In a dogfight at the end of the game.

    Tennessee is the worst matchup for us in the league.

    For the experts out there do we have any shot to receive a NIT bid if we win today?

    Think NIT requires a .500 record or better.

    We can rebound with anybody. Just keep fighting on the boards and we are in this game.
