Perhaps Fox Sports commentator Tim Brando is trying to get back in the good graces of Tennessee Vols fans.

Brando, who has blocked a large portion of “Vol Twitter”, hasn’t made many friends in East Tennessee in recent years.

The longtime commentator has been responsible for throwing jabs at Tennessee fans over the hiring of Butch Jones and the almost-hiring of Greg Schiano.

As you can imagine, things have become heated at times on social media when it comes to Brando and the UT fan base.

However, Brando isn’t letting any of that affect his NCAA Tournament picks.

On Wednesday, during an appearance on the Paul Finebaum Show, Brando picked Tennessee to reach the Final Four.

I doubt this is Brando’s way of making amends with Vol Twitter, but it certainly won’t hurt his standing with the passionate fan base (though it also might not help).

Tennessee kicks off NCAA Tournament play on Friday against Colgate at approximately 1:45 PM CT/2:45 PM ET.
