Tennessee baseball’s dominance worth savoring before SEC Tournamnet

Tennessee fans know postseason play is fraught with uncertainty. They were painfully reminded of that two months ago when their men’s basketball team was jettisoned from the NCAA Tournament in the second round.

The upset loss to Michigan was more jarring because of the success that preceded it. Tennessee had won 16 of its 18 previous games and further proved its mettle by winning the SEC Tournament, which had some fans envisioning a Final Four run.

The abrupt ending to UT’s basketball season will likely have a carryover effect with fans when UT’s baseball team begins its postseason venture.

Never mind that the Vols have been No. 1 for much of the season or won the SEC regular-season championship. That does not assure postseason success.
