It's a triple play here at Vol Colonel, followed by Orange Throat with Keith Hatfield. I'll do my part and get out of the way today. These insiders have you covered from VC's nitty gritty coaching information to OT's evisceration of Dave Hart. Hatfield throws up an all time great Hatfield IX today. This is some strong content here. I'm going to get out of the way.

The deal with Tyndall and Tennessee hoops WAS ALWAYS going to come down to a strange mix of Hart/UT admin & the NCAA. And believe me, that's an unpredictable confluence of collaborators. I wrote yesterday (and I believe this still) that the NCAA's case against Tyndall isn't air tight. If it was, we would have seen the letter long before now.

I believe in talking to people that the NCAA has shared parts of their official charges (yesterday afternoon) with Dave Hart who looks to be blinking.

Sources tell me that Tyndall and Dave Hart will meet at mid morning. As of this writing at 7:30AM, he's still the head coach here.

Tyndall staying or going was ALWAYS going to depend on Hart/UT Admin fighting for him. They've obviously decided he's not worth it.

Look, I'm not married to Donnie Tyndall like some think that I am. No one person is bigger than the program....[more]

-The first day of the tournament was as remarkable as any in recent memory. For the first time in tournament history there were 5 games decided by one point as well as three other one possession contests. Considering the modern day player’s penchant for fouling three point shooters at crucial junctures I’m counting Notre Dame’s 69-65 victory over Northeastern as one possession affair as well, meaning 9 of 16 games came down to the last team with the ball.

-As is usually the case in the first round excuse me for a second while I scream “THE PLAY-IN GAMES ARE NOT THE FIRST ROUND. Thanks I feel better there’s always a day of mayhem and a day of sanity....[more]

I'm starting to think that Dr. Sean Sinclair knows something strong. Was he tipping me off about this on yesterday's show when he went on the air and stated, 'I don't think the NCAA has anything substantive on Donnie Tyndall?' He was right! How in the world did he know this? Very interesting report from Pat Forde yesterday. It's looking like DT could be savable for the Vols. I take the NCAA coming in to interview Tyndall yet again as a sign that they have NOTHING. Why else 6 months later are they circling back once again? And I realize that I'm not alone after making some calls in the industry, the opinion I'm hearing is that when they come back several times, its a sign of a thin investigation.

The real hurdle here is going to be (as it's always been in my eyes) leadership at the university level at UT once the NLI arrives from the NCAA sometime in the next month....[more]

SHOT CLOCK BLOG I'm applying NIT speedup rules to this week's edition. In other words I hope your bracket contest stay is longer than this blog. My heart is full of March Madness but my sports mind is rather empty otherwise. For those who like an extended version my apologies. For the rest of you? You're welcome!

DANCE FEVER: Full disclosure; I’m a College Football fanatic and come from a family that played, appreciates and romanticizes the game of baseball but there is no postseason event I love more than the NCAA Basketball Tournament....[more]

VOLS EXCEED MY PRESEASON –BUT NOT MIDSEASON- HOPES If you had told me prior to the season that Tennessee’s BasketVols would finish .500 overall; 7-11 in league play with home wins over Kansas State, Butler and Arkansas and road wins vs Vandy and LSU my reply would have been “I’ll take it”. After entering February at 13-7 and 5-3 in the SEC however the collapse of a finish makes me utter “I can’t take it”. The final numbers –assuming the SEC Tournament doesn’t provide an unexpected boon to the season- are still acceptable on the surface for a team that was mostly constructed in a frenzied four-week period in the spring. Especially when considering that several projected vital pieces of that were peeled off at various intervals. Yet the probable distasteful –and now seemingly premature- ending to the season leaves me disappointed. Oh sure the Vols could assure a .500 record with a win over Vandy tonight and may receive a bid to the CBI but is anyone really excited about a tournament named after the fact that the games are probably broadcast by CB Radio? That will be a bitter pill to swallow following a season that appeared headed to unexpected heights....[more]
