  1. Same dialogue from Pruitt that I have been reading all year. I thought that he was an expert on defense? Where has his experience shown on the defense? If Pruitt believes that he has “closed the gap” with the top SEC teams as he stated earlier-he is delusional!! UT is not completive in the SEC and the game next week will decide who is the worst team in the SEC!!

  2. Contrast football with basketball coaching changes. Barnes performed at an elite level in Texas. They got tired of 1st & 2nd round exits in the NCAA’s. He came in and changed the culture. Developed 100-300 level recruits (3*) into pro basketball contributors. Made the tournament. Had us ranked #1 for a month – longer than any coach in UT history. Now has elite talent (top 5 class) with high expectations for 2020-21 as a preseason Sweet 16 team and 1st/2nd in the SEC. He has incredible assistant coaches; the entire group is well respected nationally. Barnes does it the right way – high performance standards on the field and high expectations off the field. Great fan support – top 25 in average attendance since the 1970s when the NCAA first tracked the stat. Only 4 teams have been there every year: Syracuse, Louisville, Kentucky and Tennessee.

    Now you know why I am done with football. Basketball tips off on Wednesday night.

  3. How can a seventy-year old Mack Brown leave the broadcast booth and turn a basketball school with no football history and no football culture into a Top Twenty team that can compete with Notre Dame, and Jeremy Pruitt cannot turn this team into one that can compete with Kentucky? What does that tell us?
