Amazingly, Tennessee has been almost as bad in its appearances on the lesser networks. The Big Orange stands 0-3 on Comcast Sports Southeast (CSS) -- bowing 69-68 at home to UT-Chattanooga, 77-58 at New Mexico and 62-61 at home to Nebraska. The Vols split two appearances on ESPN2 -- beating Stanford 69-57 but getting hammered 95-70 by Texas.
On a positive note, the Big Orange is unbeaten on both Fox Sports Network (nipping Xavier 71-69) and on Jefferson Pilot (edging Mississippi State 64-63). Still, Tennessee's record on the tube this season is an abysmal 3-8. By comparison, UT is 7-1 in non-televised games.
Bottom line: If the Vols were a TV series, they probably would be canceled.
