Anyone else dislike and root against the kid as much as I do? He destroyed Tennessee basketball. I've never disliked a player as much as him
How was that a charge there at the end of the game? Really feel bad for the players at Iowa State.
Agreed I can't stand him.
Next week, you won't find a bigger Arizona Wildcat fan than me. Craft is right behind Marshall Henderson on my list.
This guy is the perfect storm of hatred for me. It's bad enough he killed our program, but now he plays for Ohio State? I mean seriously, it doesn't get ANY worse than that.
Well, it could be a little bit worse. He could play for Duke. Or Kentucky.
I know where you are coming from but to say he "destroyed" Tennessee basketball is a serious exaggeration. We just won 20 games without our First Team All-SEC forward from last year and were screwed by the NCAA. We have a good coach too no matter how many want to deny it. Aaron Craft did not cause problems at Tennessee; Bruce Pearl caused problems at Tennessee. Craft did not lie to the NCAA when questioned...Bruce did. Bruce tried to get the Craft family to lie. Everything is 100% on Bruce. I can't stand Craft because he plays for tOSU, but to say he destroyed Tennessee basketball is simply not true.
I know that in reality he didn't destroy basketball here but him decommitting and the whole BBQ thing was the starting point for our downfall. Yea we won 20 games this year, but we haven't been to the NCAA tourney since and I have no confidence whatsoever that CM will get us back to the success Pearl had here.
I am man enough to admit I have sour grapes when it comes to Craft. If he had never been born, there would have been no lie, and Bruce would still be here. I understand and embrace how ridiculous my opinion is, but its fun to hate OSU players, especially when he was involved in the demise of our bball program.
Just remember that this time next year. Everyone will be back plus our recruits...we have a serious SEC contender next year.
It's Bruce Pearl's fault period.
