    What a pity that he has to leave the Vols so soon. Maybe good for Scotty but bad for the Vols. Guess Harrison and Scotty declaring for the NBA is a further fallout of Bruce Pearl's departure. Hope that Bruce lands another good job somewhere along the line or become a sports analyst doing the color.
