There is very little that shows this guy can coach or recruit worth a darn. I'm not going to argue the details about maymon being hurt, etc, this guy can not motivate or evaluation talent. Bruce Pearl suspends Tyler Smith and others, then goes and beats Kansas. Would.Never.Happen,With.Martin.
We can talk about this now or wait until the point is carved in stone after next season. I don't care which, but I think the end result is obvious.
There are only four answers to any question: Yes, No, I don't know, or the Correct Answer.
I just checked the box score......armani Moore, derek reese, yemi, Mcbee, Lopez, Edwads.....I threw up a little bit....What a joke of an sec line up. I agree with rob Lewis that this has to be one of the least highly recruited teams Tennessee has ever put on the court.
Everyone remember that you can ignore posters by clicking on the little "Ghostbusters" symbol in their avatars.
Your team. All the time.
I just wonder why people like even bother with life.

Maybe you should find another team to cheer for. Coach Martin will be here for a long time. Finishing second in the SEC regular season last year was a great accomplishment. Your continuous redderick is getting old. The two five star recruits in Two years is the best we have ever done in recruiting. Your comments just don't hold water or make sense at all.

BUTCH IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. GO VOLS!
Will you ever give up? I know there is no reason to even dignify you with a response but what is Coach Martin supposed to if his team loses by 13 points, and those players turn the ball over 19 times. Not to mention the only legitimate true point guard this team has didn't play today. I'm frustrated to and losing games is getting old but the main 2 reasons why we have lost most of these games is because of turnovers and missed free throws. COACH MARTIN DOESN'T SHOOT FREE THROWS, HOW MANY TIMES DO YOU HAVE TO BE TOLD THAT? If Tennessee hits there free throws that's at least 5 more wins they have right now if I'm not mistaken. The Maymon thing goes without being said because we all know how much of a difference he makes. I tell you what if Coach Martin doesn't have a great year next year with Stokes, Maymon, Hubbs, Golden, and McCrae and then I will admit I'm wrong then. Right now there is absolutely no reason to say Coach Martin should be fired. I also will continue to throw this suggestion out there to ya, if you don't like Coach Martin basketball then don't watch the freaking game.

100 Percent agree
I disagree. The OP received 27 down votes for stating his opinion. Now the "lock" icon pops up. Why? Because y'all don't agree with him? The use of a lock is when a thread gets out of hand not because all of you gang up on one guys opinion. For the record our bball team is horrific. Say what you want to but this team stinks
This guy did not post after UT wins a game... He only posts after a loss.... There's a pretty clear agenda behind his posting pattern...
Has everyone forgotten that it takes time to build greatness? That this team has been decimated by injury, inconsistency, & inexperience?
Coach 'Zo is building something great at Tennessee and you'd have to be a fool not to see that.
OK, I'm sure you guys will tell me this is a troll just like you said about rexvol. While I don't completely share his feelings, why does he not have the right to air them? Why does everyone pile on against this guy? Are you just completely unwilling to see or hear a view that is against what you believe, or more likely need to believe? Is more than one viewpoint not accepted? Maybe some should just stick with twitter where you can "surround yourself with yourself" Or else you could offer an adult like factual discussion on the subject . There are people all around you that are reactionally negative. It's part of life. You can't down vote these people in life. Come on guys would ya consider dealing with this stuff intelligently rather than emotionally? I guess the down vote thing gives you a sense of power or encouraged conformity, but that isn't real in life.
Because this guy has a clear agenda. You can read his previous posts and see what he is doing. I don't care if guys are opinionated about Martin. They have a right to with what is going on.... Maybe he could take some tips from Hdrizzle or Crokett.... People that have rubbed some the wrong way, but clearly can discuss the issue without trying to troll the board. That's a big difference.
I can only hope I wasn't this annoying or disrespectful when I was arguing Dooley should be fired. Coach Martin is a very good coach. If everyone will calm down for a bit I think he'll so some great things at UT. Of course, that's just my opinion. He's got my full support because he hasn't done anything to lose it. Look at Stokes the past few games. He's getting it going. How bout McRae? Does anybody remember what a punk he was? He's the leader of our team and by all accounts a mature young man now. Does Cuonzo get no credit for that? I'm not gonna list excuses because the fact is we are underachieving a bit this year. That just happens from time to time. It does not make Martin a bad coach.
i agree with half of what your saying..lets put this way he can recruit ..stokes'' billy donvan would give his left nut to have him all his team?,hubbs,,hes coming also.might be the key 4-next year.
coaching i dont yet,but these kids dont look well coached this year..and we have enough talent on the bench to win,,they dont take care or the ball, i could go on ,but whats the use,,what happen from last year to this year?blows my mind..foul shooting..and these kids are not hustling like they did lat year
stokes way slower then last year...conditition coach? i see some blame to spread here...if this board thinks we are well coach you are fooling your self..and if some one types that..then let the down voting start..we need to discuss this like grown ups and not just down voting..and face the facts
we want make it past 1 game in a nit tourney....everyone that is doing the down voting better wake up
and to beat it all ...theres 2 good teams in the sec-florida-olemiss..sec is down this year.
I haven't followed this poster or any other. Just from the outside looking in I seen one users opinion blasted. Now if he is a troll then by all means I am out of line but I know I have seen this username on this site posting non-trolling info/opinions.
As for have I forgotten about what it takes to be a winner( this is not at the user I quoted up top). No. I never said CM couldn't win or wouldn't. I just said this team is horrific to watch. That's all. Many of you agree but won't post it here with me. Rodbeazy and myself call each other after the games to vent. I want to see the Big Orange up top but I have gotten used to disappointment. I bleed orange as do my two sons and that will never change. Go Vols
Guess I'm a fool because I just don't see it.
i agree ...and hes not a troll just ..the truth hurts some on here...this aint a well coached team
well coached team ,takes care of the ball..to many turnovers...stokes feed him feed him,,give stoke time to go down and get set before firing a 3pointer ect..simple stuff...foul shooting sucks,sucks,
from foul shooting last year to this year what happen?
we have the talent to win....and i give martin props he can recruit no dought.
next year with maymon hubbs,rich,reece,ect,,better win and compete with everyone if not
the coach martin might be in trouble...im not jumping off the wagon..this is year 2 ,,by year 4 should know what we got..it is wht its going to be this year...ill still pull for them every game,,hard to watch
them make simple mistakes thats beating us...and its same stuff every game..this i swhere the coach
comes in and make changes.
I don't really care about basketball but its got to be getting more and more difficult to argue with this guy's point each week.
