Butch Jones Gets It

Butch Jones Gets It

With less than a week to go before the University of Tennessee kicks off its 117th football season, everyone wants to know how good this team will play. I wish I could tell you. This year’s Vols are a huge question mark. What I can tell you is that Butch Jones, the new UT head [...]

Vols Unveil New Uniforms

Vols Unveil New Uniforms

They call it “smokey” gray, a catchy color in the shadow of the Great Smokey Mountains.  First year Volunteer head football coach Butch Jones introduced a fresh albeit old color into the Big Orange fashion playbook.  The Vols will wear smokey gray uniforms for a home game this year.  The new threads are a nod [...]

Volunteer Notes

Volunteer Notes

For the second straight year under head basketball coach Cuonzo Martin, the Vols have been left out of the NCAA tournament.  The Vol snub is an insult to the SEC as a conference, which only got three teams invited to the tournament.  It also represents the selection committee’s bias toward small conference teams as all [...]

Are They In?

Are They In?

The Vols took care of business last week with two big wins, most notably against Missouri on Saturday.  The Missouri win was a hard fought battle and epitomizes the Vols’ determination to make the NCAA tournament.  While many pundits believe the Vols are in, nothing can be taken for granted.  If Cuonzo Martin’s basketball Vols [...]

Big Weekend

Big Weekend

The Hill was buzzing this past Saturday as Spring Practice kicked off for the Tennessee Volunteers.  Over thirty former players were on hand, including Leonard Little and Jamal Lewis.  As the Vols, under first year coach Butch Jones, showed off a new attitude and up tempo style, several recruits watched as well.  Apparently, they liked [...]

NCAA Possibilities

NCAA Possibilities

You’ve probably heard the old saying, “It’s as clear as mud.”  That sums up the basketball Vols’ NCAA possibilities.  The tournament future for Cuonzo Martin’s squad is so murky I put off writing this column twice, waiting for it to clear.  It didn’t clear.  So where does it stand? I believe the Vols need three [...]

Go Vols thirty times – Vols 88, Wildcats 58

Go Vols thirty times – Vols 88, Wildcats 58

I’d like to thank the University of Tennessee men’s basketball team for making my Saturday a bit brighter.  I sat down prepared to watch the Kentucky Wildcats invade our arena seats, get every call, and eventually outdistance my beloved Vols.  Wow!  Was I ever surprised.  The Vol faithful did their job, keeping blue out of [...]

Signing Day Preview

Signing Day Preview

Signing day for college football is on Wednesday, and the Vols are trying to restock their roster.  Despite their late start, Coach Butch Jones and his new staff have already made waves recruiting.  Their most notable prize is wide receiver Marquez North out of North Carolina.  North is ranked as one of the best two [...]

Martin Goes To Bat For Player

Martin Goes To Bat For Player

Cuonzo Martin went to bat for his players this past week, and on Saturday against the Crimson Tide, they repaid the favor. The usually soft spoken Martin publicly pointed out that his center Jarnell Stokes was being treated differently by referees, perhaps due to his sheer strength. He noted that the calls were unequal and [...]

Vols Top Bulldogs

Vols Top Bulldogs

The Volunteer basketball team bounced back from a tough stretch Saturday afternoon topping the Mississippi State Bulldogs.  The Vols’ skid had reached four games, and the lowly Bulldogs were the perfect prescription to what ailed the Vols.  Limping into Thompson Boling Arena with barely little more than a starting lineup of scholarship players, MSU struggled [...]
