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. I stuck to the skill positions since I thought the offensive line would get tedious. I’ll do the defense later.  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.

I have had my heart broken by more 18 year old boys than Jennifer Love Hewitt in the late Nineties. But because I’m a glutton for punishment, here’s a list of some of the more high profile players that either de-commited to Tennessee or led us on like Mac’s prom date.

In one of my first posts on this site, I mentioned that the 1991 Notre Dame game, better known as The Miracle at South Bend, was a huge influence on my development as a Tennessee fan. The video replay I had broke, and until recently, I had never seen the game since I was a young kid. Well, through the wonders of technology, I now own the DVD version. I’ve decided to do a Miracle at South Bend Notebook for you fans who were around then. I’ll simply follow the game as if it were live, and jot down my thoughts as they happen.
