DOWN GOES TENNESSEE

SB Nation

The Tennessee Volunteers have been eliminated from the NCAA Tournament.

Loyola-Chicago is the first Cinderella to make the second weekend of the NCAA Tournament after the Ramblers pulled off a dramatic game-winning shot in the final seconds of the second round.  SEC Player of the Year Grant Williams gave the Vols a one-point advantage with a late And One.  The next time down the court, the ball had bounced perfectly for Loyola.  It did not have an extra bounce for Tennessee.

Tennessee’s elimination is not only hilarious, it makes the South Region look like the Bad News Bears.  Kansas State, UMBC, Loyola, Nevada, Cincinnati and Kentucky are the only teams still alive.  I like my team(‘s chances).

    For this to be a strong year for our league we haven’t really shown it in the tournament. That being said, I’m always glad when the snitches go down

    Kentucky wins and Tennessee loses. The only thing that would have made it better would have been if Tennessee had lost on a last second bad call.y

    Rick Barnes had a habit of losing with superior talent at Texas, it looks like he brought that skill to Tennessee.

    Well actually the SEC started on opening day with a 4-0 record tying the best ever start. Sure a few have fallen since but I wouldn’t say we haven’t shown a great presence. Right now we still have I believe 4 teams in, counting Florida who was leading last I checked. Not great but definitely looking better than the POS 12!

    I’ve been supporting Hami all year though his ups and downs. So many haters around here got all over his case, but I was always a supporter and I really hope he comes back and helps lead this team next season.

    Yo Montana that’s koo. U supporting Hami thru struggles. N if we get him back that’s koo too. But I’d rather him ball out n punch his ticket to draft. cause I think that’s our ticket to 9 if he does.
