    We're not in much different of situations. Memphis hasn't been all that great in the past. I mean, we had Penny lol, but that was about the only highlight of the last 20 years til Darius Washington came along. Now we've got more talent than we know what to do with.
    But Calipari's coaching, or lack there-of will bite us in the end. He thinks pick-up style play will work, and all it takes is a disciplined team to beat it.

    Tennessee basketball as a whole has never been better though. Vandy, Memphis, UT, and Peay all respected. Last year we almost had a TN team in every game of the elite 8.

    Why did I think you were a Michigan fan?

    Did know you were a Memphis fan. Will be a great game. Memphis will deservedly be favored. Hopefully Caliperi will realize that this is a good rivalry and continue the Home/Home. Not a lot of love loss between the 2 though.

    Michigan fan by birth. Memphis fan by location for awhile. Like, the Lions/Titans are my 2 teams. Detroit Tigers, Redwings, hate the pistons like the Grizzlies, (but LA is my team due to kobe. NBA is more of a player sport anyway)and always have , and then Memphis/Michigan. I also like GT, but mostly because I thought I'd end up there when in HS.

    Whew! What a close one. I will concede to Gloat...today we played sloppy, but LSU was playing great def. I knew it would either be a huge blowout or an emotional close win. Pearl won this one today with some great coaching. It is certainly a controlled chaos. The game against Arkansas will be a nail biter.
