Vols stuff worth reading 6.12.18

If you only read one thing about the Vols today . . .

. . . make it Grant Ramey’s article about Rick Barnes’ culture of consistency. Go read the whole thing, but here’s the money quote, from assistant coach Rob Lanier:

“I remember saying to my self, ‘Man, when I become a head coach, I want the people around me to feel the way he makes me feel in those situations.’”

  1. Thank you for separating the links that are behind paywalls. Nothing more frustrating than clicking on a link only to have to pay for it

    • Yeah, I feel you.

      The stuff irritating me most right now is the newspapers that give you only a few free reads before locking you out. You can circumvent it by clearing your browser or reading in incognito, but then all of my personalization and workflow is lost. Mostly, I’ve stopped looking at them altogether because even when I checked them, there’s often not much worthwhile anyway. I like David Cobb at the TFP, and John Adams will sometimes have something, but the irritation makes it not worth it to me. But let me know if you think it would be worth it for me to keep checking.
