Why Rick Barnes is NOT on the Hot Seat After Losing 17 Point Lead

[Knoxville Citizen] – Why Rick Barnes is NOT on the Hot Seat After Losing 18 Point Lead

Let’s be real for a second — Tennessee wasn’t supposed to beat the #13 ranked Auburn Tigers, but that’s no excuse for a loss.

Tennessee played a solid first half of ball and with 14:27 remaining in the second half, they held a solid 17 Point Lead.

Unfortunately, through a series of unfortunate events and 24 turnovers, Tennessee wasn’t able to hang on and eventually lost by Seven points.

Today on social media there were many people criticizing this team and calling for Barnes to be placed on the hot seat, but that’s not going to happen.

Here is why Rick Barnes will not be placed on the hot seat

  • Tennessee had several players drafted into the NBA last year.
  • This is a young team and we weren’t expected to win. The fact that Tennessee is showing glimpses of greatness is a good thing and bolds well for the future of Tennessee Basketball.
  • Regardless of what anyone thinks, Barnes is a proven Coach with a winning record of 707-375 and we believe that right now Tennessee stands behind him 100%.
  • Replacing Barnes would set the Tennessee Basketball Program back 4 to 7 years and right now, they are poised to come back next year as a much improved team.

Sometimes as fans, we get upset when our teams aren’t doing as well as we want and that can be frustrating, but let’s try to not call for the coaches head just yet.

Good times are right around the corner for Tennessee, all we have to do is be patient. Those moments of greatness that we see right now will be how we play all the time in the near future.
