Let’s look at three of the biggest keys — or, simply put, Three Things — that we discussed heading into Tennessee’s 75-65 loss at Kentucky on Tuesday night in Rupp Arena.

At critical points in the game those questionable calls took away the vols drive. Tough to compete when the opposing coach runs the floor with his team. He should have been ejected. Never seen game stopped to review a call that was not made. Good grief, terrible officiating. Agree the guys need to play through those situations. They had a let down in the last 3 mins. Proud of our coach, he didn't make a scene, kept his cool.
"Count it down with me. Five, four, three, two, one.
The national champion is clad in Big Orange!"
Golden and Stokes look like they have concrete in there shoes and on there hands, are they tired or just slow Stokes never get's 8" off the floor.
Experience matters. At this juncture, McRae seems to be the vols' only upperclassman with the skills and apparent mental toughness to be a consistent asset.
Am I alone in wondering when Conzo is going to be able to win his first big game. I don't count the Wichita State game as a big win. When is he going to upset a top 10 team or win a road game when no one thinks the team has a chance. Stokes hasn't developed either has Golden. This team is all his players minus about 3. McRae is his best player. I like coach a lot just not sure he can win the big game!
