This marks the third season of Martin’s tenure with the Volunteers and also the third season of his television show, produced by the Vol Network.

 

Under Martin’s steady guidance, Tennessee has logged upset victories over three top-25 opponents in each of Martin’s first two seasons, and he has also led the Big Orange to at least one win over every Southeastern Conference school.

 

Each of Martin’s two full seasons at UT have included triumphs over the defending national champion, as the Vols toppled UConn in 2012 and posted a 30-point win over Kentucky in 2013.   

 

Bob Kesling returns to co-host the Martin show. In addition to Martin appearing on set each week, the Vol Network takes fans behind the scenes, as only it can, for compelling player features along with exclusive reviews of the week’s conference games and previews of upcoming action. 

 

Now for the first time, viewers across all major Tennessee markets and a nine-state Southeast footprint can tune to both The Cuonzo Martin Show and The Holly Warlick Show – highlighting the second-year Lady Vols head coach – in back-to-back television time periods to enjoy a solid hour of Tennessee hoops highlights. 

 

The Vol Network is pleased to welcome WATN Channel 24 (ABC) in Memphis to its weekly basketball TV affiliate lineup this season, bringing west Tennessee fans exclusive coverage of the Vols and Lady Vols.

When The City Was Silent

I don't know how to say this without getting my head handed back to me on a platter as is often the usual case. But at least I no longer receive the hateful (even threatening) emails and insults I became accustomed to. So I'll just bite and say it: I honestly don't see anything expressed by the NSM that hasn't been said locally on some level at one time or another, and ... (click for more)
