Q&A With SEC Network's Dane Bradshaw



The SEC's Sean Cartell sat down with VFL and SEC Network basketball analyst Dane Bradshaw for a Q&A on the upcoming SEC season:

As a Tennessee alum, what do you think of the hire of Donnie Tyndall as men's basketball head coach?

"I love the hire and I love it even more after spending some time with him. The fact that he's won at multiple places that aren't traditional basketball powerhouses, I think is really good. He's got discipline in his program and his guys are buying in. He's got a lot of work to do, but I think that he'll do really well. The Knoxville community is really excited about him."
