Big 9 Confrence

Recommended Posts

Don't even compare TN Basketball to Volunteer basketball. Every class that comes through Volunteer plays the same way (DIRTY). I don't think they teach it in Middle School, because I've seen them play. Their style of play starts at the high school level. All Big 9 coaches see it and so do the fans. Also, the referees see it. Be prepared, this year something may be done about it.

 

First, there was no comparison between UT and Volunteer basketball. I was saying Bruce Pearl was a dirty coach based on your criteria. (Please read and comprehend properly) Second, are you making a threat? If so, that is a direct violation of this boards poilicies. Third, if you are an official, you are engaging in a gross display of professional misconduct. If you are a fan, how can you know what is coached? You can only assume. Break the word assume down and you'll see what assuming does. Third, what you all are engaging in is called slander. You are defaming and damaging a person's reputation without firsthand knowledge or a clue of what's going on.You ,again, are working on assumptions not concrete facts (unless you have audio or video evidence of improprieties and I know you don't). Floor General22 threw around earlier that a lawsuit may come out of this. On that point he is right. Slander is grounds for a lawsuit. Even CoachT's records would be subject to a subpoena. Then your precious secret identities would be known. There would be no more cowardly hiding behind a computer in anonymity and attacking an individual. I bet I know an attorney that would take this case Pro Bono ( for free for those of you that don't know what that means). So, be careful slinging around loose accusations and threats. They could come back to haunt you.

Ohh I think Split pretty much said it all. Listen i played Volunteer Basketball my freshman and sophomore years..i decided to focus only on football and baseball. So, I, of all people would have no problem telling the real truth about all of this.... and it is.....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Coach Whitt has never told a player to intentionally hurt another player..no matter the situation..FloorGeneral22 sounds like someone who either played or had a child that played against Volunteer and got it taken to you..Whining gets you no where in life.. If this is such a problem then why hasnt it been addressed and brought to the Athletic Director's attention.. My advice- Quit whining about Volunteer's Team and unless your team is DB or the hill, id start focusing on ur team.

Well, well, well..... here it is 2007, and Floor General is still up to his poison three years later. There will not be a lawsuit to reveal his Identity. I will reveal it if this does not stop. I told you and everyone else that Coach Whitt or anybody in the organization does not teach players to play dirty. They are taught to play hard, and sometimes the hard play is termed to be dirty. I played at DB from 83-87, and many players before me can attest to what I am about to say. Buck and other popular coaches like Burns, Pitts, and Warner all taught that you do not give an uncontested lay up or you would wind up on the bench. Today's game has become way too finess. It's all about the flash and glitter. The uniforms have to sag to the knees and some players care more about how they look for the girls than if their team wins. In the Big Nine last year, we probably gave up the most three-point plays (not three-pointers) in the conference. That was due to the in-experience of our young players. if we taught players to play dirty, there's no way we would give up as many three-point plays as we did the last couple of years. If you've had a three year axe to grind Floor General, please call Coach Whitt and discuss it with him, but remember, he goes to work everyday just like you. How would you like it if someone kept calling you out at your job and put you down even though you did not do the things that were being lied about. Oh yeah..... there is a lot of truth from a previous poster.... you could get sued if Coach Whitt got tired of you getting on here and lying about what you know nothing about. It is called slander and there is no hiding from a screen name when it comes to that. Also, like I said before, I could call you out and let everyone know who you are. I do not hide behind a screen name because I do not try and cut down people on here. This a a game of teenagers that play for extra-curricular activity. If it was how you say it was, then the players that graduated from Volunteer would not come back around. Coach Whitt has a number of his players come back and see how the program's doing. Please act like you have some sense and get on with other topics, hopefully something positive for a change. I will at least see you at TWO games this year. Remember to say hi to me if you want. You know where I am, and I know where you are.

To everyone else..... good luck to all teams in the Big Nine this year. There seems to be a lot of parity and questions to be answered this year. I wish all of you a good season and good health. GOD BLESS!!!!!

PS..... Hey SKUNK? The business will be open around MArch or April, and there might be bigger market we are currently looking at. See you at the DB/Volunteer games. Take care......

I'll use my first ever post for this one. I think it is unfair to say that Volunteer is coached dirty. That being said they do play a whole lot rougher than is the norm. I think it is safe to say that one of them will be paid back tonight as the Mighty Viking football team wears them out.

I am excited to see what the Sullivan Central's student section is going to bring this year. I was quite impressed last season and I hear they will be just as good as last year. I know it has to be hard playing at the Cougar Dome.

 

Size wise Central's crowd will probably be pretty large again. However the goal is to remove some vulgarity and add a little wit.It will still be a great home court advantage.

First, let me congratulate Volunteer for their big win last night. Shows just what a team with alot of heart and determination can accomplish. Good luck next week.

Now, to respond to post. As far as the lawsuit, I believe it would be libel instead of slander. And if you truly think you could make that stand up in court based solely on me expressing my opinions, then have at it. Also you said yourself that your teams play could be considered dirty. Next, I don't think you have a clue who I am. I know I don't know who you are. That was pretty bright of you to mention that you would see me at least twice this year, considering I'm posting in the Big 9 conference forum. But anyways, I invite you to come over and sit with me when you do see me. I won't bite. Maybe we could have some good conversation about basketball and possibly discuss this matter and try and understand it from each others perspective. I don't think we could ever agree, however that doesn't mean we cannot understand one another. I would welcome this. So, please, if you truly know who I am, when you do see me, have a seat and I'll buy the drinks.

After reading this I believe that most people are underestimating the Patriot basketball team. Yeah we may be undersized in some posistions, but i know for a fact that no team has as much heart as our team. Dillon Faver will dominate the conference this year i dont think there is a defender around that can stop his last second heroics. Issac Snapp is going to get back on track after last seasons lack lusster second half. Kyle Barnes may not be 6'9 or 6'7 but he is a warrior on the boards, and he can shot the three ball better than most guards. Wes Eads is a soild defender who is always playing hard, and he is a very underestimated offensive player. Koree Deeb is a new comer to the starting lineup but he saw considerable playing time last year. He plays good defense and he shots from the corners better than anybody. As for the freshman, Jordan Cross, he will be an imediate factor as the sixth man. Ive seen him play since he was in the seventh grade and he is rediculous. Also, some of u people are speaking of the Cougar dome being a tough place to play. This year no matter where East is playing it will be a tough place to play. Especially the Patriot Palace.

No Perry Mason it is slander. And it would stand up in court. Everyone has an opinion, but stating that as fact in a public forum damages reputations (slander). Your remarks are recorded in print at the host's site. A simple supoena woud gain access to that information as well as your identity. If you used an assumed name, then the e-mail address used to activate your account can be tracked. Use this site to discuss basketball not to defame people. You obviously have a problem with Coach Whittemore. Be a man and discuss it with him, not on this site. By the way, if Coach Whittemore wishes to pursue that course of action, it will be free of charge.

Excuse me Matlock, but I believe you are incorrect. Might want to check your lawbooks again. Slander and Libel both fall under the catagory of defamation. Slander being oral defamation (meaning speaking it to someone) and libel being published defamation (which includes writing or broadcasting). Can you show me where I have stated such opinions as absolute facts? Anyways, I'm done with this subject. It is time to start talking about meaningful basketball topics asothers have stated. The season is here and whether or not my opinions have merit or not can be judged by others. Once again, congrats on the big win. I'll be rooting for you to get another one next Friday.

Coach Whitt never ever once told me nor any of the players on that team to kill someone as you basically state! I would love to know who your source is on all your information you are using cause you need to tell them they are wrong and if its just you watching the games well I do know that I was told to play hard every second of the game I was in and I and everyone on the team did so. Everyone states DB SH has all this talent but yet they play volunteer and dirty play comes out well there is a difference in competing and not backing down its alot different then playing dirty.

 

 

Well I have some information that will probably NOT shock you Smith. I have talked to two players from Volunteer. One from the team last year and one from the team this year. And both said that Coach Whittemore of Volunteer told them to take a certain players legs out on a layup or shot if they got one. I will not reveal the names of the players cause they said not to. Now.... they said that it only happened a few of times, but still............... ONCE is WAY more than enough. There is a difference between playing hard, with heart, physicality, than playing dirty. Just think about that and you will know what I am talking about.
