    He's done a damn good job at UT. And I'm not just saying that because we're 3-0 over the last two seasons lol.
    Just a barner.

    There goes Davis!

    Need him to stay Tame Ky in the east.
    This is the beginning of a new day.God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or or use it for good.What I do today is very important because Im exchanging a day of my life for it.When tommorow comes,this day will be gone forever. Leaving something in its place I have traded for it. I want it to be a gain, not loss - good, not evil. Success, not failure in order that I Shall not forget the price I paid for it.

    Re: Barnes contemplating leaving UTK for Ucla

    I heard him speak at a Clemson IPTAY (I pay ten a year) dinner about 25 years ago when a colleague of mine - who happened to be a former Clemson athlete - took me to their dinner. This was a couple weeks after he had the run-in with Dean Smith. It was a very interesting group but I came away liking Barnes for some reason.

    Later that year, I took my colleague to a Bama alumni dinner where Dabo was the speaker when he was an assistant at Bama. Coincidence?

    Agree. At soon to be 65 with a rebuilt UT program (to his specs) he can coach at a minimum of another 5 years. UCLA is a hot mess right now, along with the entire PAC12. I can see the allure of going to Westwood though. Good decision.
