8. That time he beat Kentucky in Rupp Arena...

This guy pretty much sums up how every Vols fan felt on that night. Tennessee has won in Rupp Arena in 1977, 1979, 1999, and 2006.

4. That time he called Lane Kiffin a dumbass...

In an interview talking about his suspenion: "I've made mistakes, I clearly did, but what I was hoping for was that some other dumbass would get on the front page and take me off the hook. I miss Lane Kiffin."

3. That time he took the Vols to #1 for the first time in school history...

And he did it by beating state rivals Memphis, on the road, in a #1 vs #2 match-up. No Tennessee basketball fan will ever forget that sense of pride when Chris Lofton sank the game clinching free-throw.

2. That time he went to a Lady Vols game covered in body paint...

Because let's face it, no coach will ever be this badass.

1. That time he took Tennessee to the school's first Elite 8...

Remember that sense of joy you felt when J.P. Prince blocked Evan Turner's last second shot to send the Vols to their first Elite 8?
