My prediction on what I think will happen: Hamilton is fired and replaced by Pat Summitt. Mickie DeMoss takes over the womens team and Josh Pastner is hired from Memphis to replace Bruce Pearl. I think it is all entirely possible.
Your guess is as good as mine, but when you consider that Tennessee is arguably the second best SEC job, one would think that they'll be able to land a coach who at least has proven he can at least advance in NCAA play.
Pastner may well be a diamond-in-the-rough, but it seems too risky. Tennessee can ill afford another Buzz Peterson/Wade Houston-like hire. I remember all too well when Don DeVoe was foolishly canned. It wasn't pretty.
