In the aftermath, most expected the team to fall apart. However, that has not happened. The Vols upset then-No. 1
Nobody knows where the season will go from here. The Vols could still collapse and limp all the way to March. The SEC opener is Thursday against Auburn, and it would not entirely surprise me if we fell flat on our faces. Or, we could continue to rally and put together a remarkable season. Who knows?
The one thing to emerge from the wreckage of this mess is that head coach Bruce Pearl is a heck of a coach both off the court and on. He is exactly the type of coach I want leading the program.
Take time to appreciate him.
