I have to believe that betting men all over the country are taking the Vols -5 points on Saturday after last week’s near upset of Alabama on national television. If that line proves to be correct, you can count me as one who’ll be very surprised. It’s a huge game for Tennessee because we’re still in dire need of an impressive win. I think Georgia was huge, but nobody was talking about it outside of the Southeast. The Gamecocks are ranked 21st in the AP Poll and the national ESPN audience gives Kiffin a great opportunity to capitalize on the buzz he’s generated with close games against Florida and Alabama.

Fellow Vols, it was cloudy in Knoxville on Saturday, but inside Neyland Stadium, it was as beautiful as it has been in a long time. Tennessee was dominant, pounding Georgia for the second time in a row at Neyland. It was just one of those games where everything clicked; even on the Vols’ opening drive, which stalled and ended in a punt, Tennessee looked like a different team. As big as the Auburn game was, Georgia was huge for the Vols’ season. Almost decisive. Going into a bye week, UT will look to get rested and prepared for Alabama. A few things they’ll take away from the UGA game tape: Read the rest of this entry »

You know it’s gameday in Fort Sanders when you pass a parking lot and see a random dude in an orange vest standing in the middle of it. This person’s job is to stand there and make sure no one parks in his lot that isn’t supposed to. Parking, just like every other part of gameday in Knoxville, is madness. This Saturday, September 12th, is UCLA gameday. And madness, folks, is what we’ll have here tonight if Tennessee comes out and makes another statement. Read the rest of this entry »

The Lane Kiffin era at UT is underway. I witnessed its long awaited inception this past weekend, which was a raging success. Campus was like a Big Orange Utopia on Saturday, and after a slow start, the game gave everyone wearing the Power T something to smile about. I think my Dad said it best: “It was like expecting a certain Christmas gift, and opening it up to find something better than you were hoping for.” Read the rest of this entry »

Homeboy yacked all over himsef and the beautiful baby sitting next to him. So maybe not a happy Lane Kiffin Day for him.

I can’t figure out where in the world to start. It’s just been a great day. We were Jacob was up and at it as early as 6:30 to make a Chick-Fil-A nugget tray pick-up. There are three main components of a great gameday: food, friends, and football, and we were blessed with a lot of all three. Here’s how we felt about the game. Read the rest of this entry »

So excited. Soooo excited. I even got a little pumped when I saw the scalpers out on the Strip today. Here’s what we’re looking forward to tomorrow: Read the rest of this entry »

While reading Jacob’s prediction post, I really thought he was going to pick us to beat Alabama. I’m glad he didn’t. Because while I, too, am optimistic about our young Vol squad, 10-2 is very lofty. If he had gone with 11-1, I would’ve called him crazier than John Henderson’s trainer. Here’s how I see this season playing out. Read the rest of this entry »

It was another hot Saturday at Neyland, but Kiff had the Vols hitting it hard today, and in more of a game-like situation. We saw a lot we want to talk about so we’re just going to do a positional breakdown. Let’s get to it: Read the rest of this entry »

Mac and I are heading over to the stadium for the second time this year. Really excited to see Bryce Brown, David Oku, Nukeese and the rest of the guys in a game-like situation. If you’re heading there too, please don’t hesitate to come up and say hi. I’ll be the little one wearing a khaki hat and whatever Mac is wearing, it will almost certainly be wrinkled. Again, we’ll have a full report tonight on the action.
