The Everyday Mailbag-2/8/11

Another week, another batch of questions. Let's see what America wants to know!

Q: What grade would you give UTs football recruiting class for this year?
-Kareem H., Nashville, TN

A: I think they did an excellent job. I would give them a B+. They got what they needed the most: offensive linemen and defensive backs. They also pulled some good surprises with getting JUCO DB Byron Moore and OL Antonio Richardson along with a DE that they very much needed. Their class would have been even better if they would have been an A+ if they were able to get a big defensive tackle.

Q: What did you think about the selections for this years NBA all star game?
-Kareem H., Nashville, TN

A: I was ok with all but one of the selections. I believe that Portland's LaMarcus Aldridge should have been the replacement for Yao instead of Minnesota's Kevin Love. Love is putting up numbers on a team that has no expectations and he is getting a ton of minutes. Aldridge is putting up numbers on a team that's surviving and in playoff contention and he is carrying them offensively.

Q: Cavs...25 in a row...still a sad story...Any changes in the future?
-Indira O., Antioch, TN

A: Yes, there will be changes. Unfortunately, no changes they make this year will help this team. This team is a 2-3 year rebuilding job. Seems to me that the Cavs had no plan if LeBron decided not to come back to Cleveland.

Q: I've been hearing rumors that the steelers may pick up fisher. What u think? Fact or fiction?
-Iyisha H., Murfreesboro, TN

A: Fiction. He will have a lot of suitors for the 2012 season, so that would be a backwards move for him. Expect him to either get a head coaching spot or either be in the booth or the studio.

Q: Do you think Blake Griffin will win the slam dunk contest ? And if so, who will give him competition ?
-James R., Nashville, TN

A: I don't think Blake Griffin will win the dunk contest. I think DeMar Derozan will win the dunk contest. Derozan is a shorter than Blake Griffin and his dunks will look better because of that. Better looking dunks equal better scores.

Q: What do you think about Mike Muchak as the new head coach of the Tennessee Titans ?
-James R., Nashville, TN

A: I don't know what to say. I've never seen him coach. All I can say is he is a Jeff Fisher clone until I actually see his coaching style. I would expect the Titans to still focus heavily on the running game and defense.
