It sucks to lose. And it really sucks to lose to Alabama. And it sucks even worse to outplay them, be in position to win, and still lose. Read the rest of this entry »

In excitement over the young talent we have on campus now, I thought I’d take a look at our depth chart and compare it to past Vols. The process is this: I took our starters and compared them to the past 4 starters we’ve had at each position. Since there isn’t always a clear starter, and there are multiple starters at certain positions, you’ll have to bear with me.

The Lane Kiffin era at UT is underway. I witnessed its long awaited inception this past weekend, which was a raging success.

With Memphis and the Mississippi schools much closer, you’d think Big Orange Country might not extend all the way across the state. That’s not the case, however, and it’s something about Tennessee that has always made me proud.
