VW has to have one of the most incompetent management teams of any company I've ever seen. These morons think they can do here what they did in Germany. Heck, these pinheads can't even figure out where to put a new SUV line. How long does it take for goodness sakes? Are we talking years now? Good grief. These incompetent fools are just now figuring out that you HAVE to update your vehicles in the US more than what they do overseas. Hello! Instead of focusing on selling cars (800,000 cars per year in the US by when again? LOL!), they are caught up in their own idea of a utopian European company in Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA. They have underestimated how many people are sick of groups like the UAW. Instead, VW is supporting the UAW and WANTS the UAW to come into their plant in Chattanooga. This works council thing just has to have the UAW to work here you know! Fools! Not only that, but even after VW's own employees rejected the UAW by a majority vote, VW STILL wants the UAW to come in. I wish I was making this up, but I'm not. Unreal how incompetent the leadership is at VW. If VW continues to focus on idocy like bringing in the UAW, showing a complete lack of leadership in terms of where (and when) to put another SUV line, and coming in late to the game in terms of figuring out what the American consumer wants in a vehicle, it won't be long before VW forces itself to cut tail and run from Enterprise South and the US market entirely.

Why does the CTFP always include the fact that Rhonda Thurman is a hairdresser in every single story about the woman? Good lord.

Why does the CTFP contstantly remind everyone, in every single story it seems, that Rhonda Thurman is a hairdresser? I think I know.

Perhaps we should create a campaign (a REAL campaign) to educate "at risk" youth to get married before having mutliple babies with multiple partners. The breakdown of the family is the real issue here. Single moms with multiple kids with no "daddies" around. Selfish people who put their own gratification ahead of their own kids. It's just sad.

Martin is getting out of Dodge before the team he recruited only wins 10 to 12 games in the 2014/2015 season. Martin is a fine man. We all know this. However, I'm not going to lose sleep over losing a guy who FINALLY, at the end of his 3rd season as coach, did something with an upperclass laden team that included players like McRae and Maymon whom he didn't even recruit. If Stokes goes pro, who is going to score besides Josh Richardson? Martin has recruited a bunch of role players.

I'm convinced that Tennessee can get a better coach than Martin, a better recruiter than Martin, a coach who can assemble a better group of assistants than Martin, a coach who actually knows how to coach offense, a coach who has at least one iota of knowledge when it comes to drawing up an inbounds play, and a coach who actually has some personality and charisma.

Do you think for one second Martin wouldn't get his pink slip after the 2014/2015 debacle that anyone with any basketball knowledge and the talent it takes to win knows is coming? Why put off the inevitable? Let Martin move to Millwaukee and get $1.3 million of buyout money in the coffers to hire a new coach. This is a no brainer.

No mention of Josh Richardson's performance yesterday? Really, his performance so far in the entire tournament has been outstanding. He's making some serious $$$ right now. He's a 6'6" 2-guard who can handle the ball and is one of the best defensive players in all of college basketball. Now, he's playing lights out offensively with drives for layups, pull up J's, and even a 3 pointer or two. Honestly, Richardson and Stokes (Mr. Double Double) have put up 3 performances in the tourney so far that are as good as ANYONE.

Boeheim going crazy and getting the technicals and thrown out of the game sealed the deal. Boeheim created the fiasco. I would expect better from a HOF coach. His team was still in the game at that point, and he didn't give his team a chance because he acted like a moron.

As far as Martin goes, well, he needs to go NOW. I know you would love for Martin to stay at Tennessee Mark. Then, you would never have to worry about the Vols beating your Kentucky Wildcats again. The fact of the matter is that Martin isn't a good coach. Not only that, the guy has the personality of a brick - He has none. Imagine how bad it will be next year in Knoxville if Martin isn't told to hit the bricks. Tennessee might average 50 points per game with Martin continuing to run his stupid offensive sets that he still runs from when he was a player at Purdue. I mean, who the heck is going to score points for them next year with all the role player, defensive type guys that will be left and also the new guys coming in? They MIGHT get 5,000 fans per game considering they probably will win 10 games next year. Martin does NOTHING to get the fans excited. He can't win games he supposed to win with arguably two of the top 5 players in the SEC. Two losses to Texas A&M? Are you kidding me? Add his horrible personality to the equation and you get a guy who offers zero positives. I mean, what is Martin's upside exactly?

The quicker Clownzo gets his pink slip, the better. This team won't win 10 games next year because they won't be able to score. With McRae, the only true scoring threat gone, and man-child offensive rebounders Maymon and Stokes (I think Stokes will go pro) gone, Clownzo's ball team will probably set a record in offensive futility. It's only going to get worse after this team of mainly upperclassman is gone.

Clownzo is a nice guy, but he needs to get with it and quit this business of playing like he's still hoisting it up for Gene Keady at Purdue eons ago. That offense stinks, and he refuses to adapt to today's game. Combine Clownzo's woeful ineptitude as a coach with his horrible personality, and there won't be many people filling TBA next season.

Tennessee needs to bring back Bruce Pearl. The man can coach and has the personality to get people fired up. He's the exact opposite of Clownzo.

The best trash talker of all time is Muhammed Ali. It's not even close.

After that, you really have to keep it in the ring, and (dare I say it) go with the American Dream, Dusty Rhodes and Mr. Dewayne Johnson, aka "The Rock". They are the two best trash talkers in professional rasslin' history.

My 4th and final spot would go to..................Gary Payton, aka "The Glove". Ask anybody who played against him.

Honorable mention: Two of the greatest to grace the hardwood: Michael Jordan and Larry Bird, as well as the best trash talker in NFL history: Shannon Sharpe.

Trying to figure out your angle on this story David. I guess there must be more to come. Are you just walking the streets and interviewing people now? Good grief.
