Mike DeCourcy Says Vols weakest team standing

15. Michigan State. We saw what the Spartans looked like without Kalin Lucas in early February, and it wasn't pretty. If the Spartans were in one piece they'd have had a solid chance at stealing Tom Izzo's sixth Final Four berth. 16. Tennessee. Ohio did the Vols the favor of chasing Georgetown out of the tournament and then performing as though that had been enough. Tennessee made some big shots in that game and the opener against San Diego State and is proud to have come so far given its midseason tumult. "It's pretty big," Vols center Wayne Chism said after reaching the Sweet 16. "I've been there twice already and came up short twice. I'm happy to be back on that stage again, and I just can't wait to get there and be prepared to play the next team." So -- let me get this straight -- Tennessee being proud of where they've come from to get here makes them the worst? It wasn't like Ohio wasn't trying in that game, either; Tennessee played great defense and used their size and athleticism to stifle a red-hot, guard-heavy team. Sound familiar? Granted, this guy also has Ohio State ranked ahead of Syracuse in the pecking order -- because beating a 10th seeded Georgia Tech team by, what, 9 was obviously more impressive than Syracuse's 22 point win over 8 seeded Gonzaga, right? Seriously, though, someone send Bobby Maze this link.
