NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings says "it's absolutely a joke" that Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin is facing questions about job security in his third season.
Tennessee (17-11, 8-7 SEC) could miss the NCAA tournament for a third straight year and that has led to a drop in attendance, criticism from some fans on talk radio and an online fan petition to bring back Bruce Pearl, who preceded Martin.
Stallings said Thursday that "hopefully the powers that be over at Tennessee will tune those idiots out and give the guy the kind of time he deserves to do the job he needs to do."
Vanderbilt (15-12, 7-8) plays at Tennessee on Saturday.
Stallings and Martin are both former Purdue players and assistants, though they weren't there at the same time.

It's pretty obvious who the real idiot is, Stallings. Oh, I'm sure this dummy would love for Martin to stay at Tennessee... along with every other SEC coach, lol. Martin inherited more than adequate talent right off the bat... exactly what kind of "time" are we talking about, here? There are many other places in the country where he would already be fired. Just mind your own business at Peabody and shut your yap.
