    He wouldn't provide transcripts IIRC. Also a byproduct of IDKWTI playing us til the last minute.

    There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again

    Poll Update: Starting 5

    I think there's going to be a difference between the starting 5 for the first game and the last... I think this team is way more talented/experienced then when Ayo started as a frosh. But I may be undervaluing Miller there.

    Or the writing was on the wall with Tchikou and they took someone rather than staring at the wall while getting 2nd. This staff has proven to be very willing to take a flier on a big if/when they miss on their priorities.
