    Although that was probably the most shocking of them all, others are quickly climbing the list.

    Three 12 seeds up set fives, while No. 15 Florida Gulf Coast has run the table to reach the Sweet Sixteen!

    Personally, two of my final four went out in the first round.

  • Column: Butch Jones making...

    As Derek Dooley puts his mansion up for sale, the new staff at the University of Tennessee is approaching things with a little bit of a twist.

    With their first practices already under their belt, there’s been a few noticeable changes.
