Peterson inherited a program in disarray -- no discipline, no conditioning, no heart and no point guard. He has added a superior point guard (freshman C.J. Watson), while upgrading the discipline, heart and conditioning. The program now has everything except top-to-bottom talent and a winning attitude. As Buzz brings in players with better talent and better attitudes, the victories will follow.
Remember: Green won a lot of games with talent he inherited from Kevin O'Neill but the program was on the decline when he exited. Had Green stayed, the program would be in shambles by now. Whereas we saw the Jerry Green era AT ITS BEST, we've seen the Buzz Peterson era AT ITS WORST. The Vol program has bottomed out and is on the upswing. Eventually, Buzz will win more games with good players and discipline than Green won with great players and no discipline.
