Tennessee fans aren’t happy with Holly Warlick after Sunday’s blowout loss to Mississippi State.
The Lady Vols were hammered by the Lady Bulldogs 91-63.
Tennessee is 15-8 overall this season and has never missed an NCAA Tournament; however, in Charlie Creme’s latest Bracketology for ESPN, the Lady Vols are projected out of the tournament.
That would be a historical event in women’s college basketball.
Tennessee is out for now. But, the Lady Vols certainly aren't out of this completely. Remember, it's a numbers game. There has to be 32 at-large teams and the word "deserve" is always relative to the rest of the landscape.

Warlick took over for the legendary Pat Summitt, and she is 166-61 overall through 6.5 seasons. She’s never made it past the Elite Eight, and if things keep trending the way they are, the Lady Vols won’t even get a tournament bid this season.
Following the loss, UT fans sounded off on social media:
Holly Warlick needs to be out as Lady Vols coach

Unbelievable that @phillipfulmer would allow our @LadyVol_Hoops girls to suffer embarrassment under terrible coaching of @Holly_Warlick Rest assured we will not get any more top recruits & we'll see transfers of our talent next year! @Vol_Sports must make coaching change & AD

She needs to be canned…. unfortunately there’s no one on that bench to take her place. They’re all as bad as she is…. He just needs to clean house at the end of the season.

I love Holly Warlick..She's all TN. But I have to say, this team looks miserably unprepared. Especially against upper tier teams. The team seems to be regressing and not progressing. Most notably on defense. 4 the 1st time I can see UT taking a different path at Head Coach.

Coach Holly Warlick, it’s time! Thank you for your dedication and loyalty to the Univeristy of Tennessee, but it’s now time for a change for the Lady #Vols historic basketball program! https://t.co/tebwSTWJFl

Holly Warlick is the worst coach in the SEC.
