I hope that you are having a great Memorial Day Weekend. I heard from several of you following the Vol Notes last week, and I really appreciate your notes and thoughts so please keep those coming.
We are in the “Early Dog Days” of Summer in Tennessee, hot with weird weather. I decided to look at the Vols Football and Basketball and the Lady Vols Basketball for the coming year.
This year’s DISH Orange and White Game will be the first public look at new head coach Jeremy Pruitt‘s program. The event, on April 21, will feature a live game at 2 p.m.,
More information on the staff on the first list and some new support staff have been hired.
Well, it is the end of a season that I never thought that I would see for Football at the University of Tennessee. . .
It is a pretty day today and the Vol’s game last Saturday was interesting. I few thoughts about this year and last year. Last year the defense was. . .
I was a sad Vol Fan on Saturday night. Young guys stepped up and played some of their best football, but they made too many mistakes and a . . .
As the game progressed and the Vols repeatedly got into the Orange Zone and failed to score TD’s, I reflected upon the reasons for that failure that has been repeated with two talented but very different QB’s
It was an interesting game yesterday. It was the classic example of fans wanting to have their cake and eat it too…. We have heard the constant moans: 1) The coaches do not play the young players enough to get them experience; 2) The…
A painful loss to the Gators yesterday. It was especially painful because we played so well for so much of the game but failed to meet the standards that the General’s Maxims set for the Vols. Despite the pain of the loss, the sun came up…
The Tennessee football team will start the 2018 season in Charlotte against West Virginia at Bank of America Stadium on Sept. 1 and wrap up the regular season at Vanderbilt on Nov. 24, as the SEC announced the 2018 schedules for all 14. . .
The Vols had an easy win Saturday and are into the preparations for their trip to Gainesville to play the Gators this Saturday. In their first two games, the Vols have played two very different opponents and the Vol’s game plans for the two. .
A day has passed since the Vols played Ga Tech and the smoke has cleared. Reading notes from fans on the boards, opinions on the players, coaches, and the game run the entire spectrum. It is time for my two cents worth of . . .
ATLANTA, Ga. – Junior running back John Kelly dashed for four touchdowns and racked up 128 rushing yards to help lead No. 25/24 Tennessee to a double-overtime victory against Georgia Tech in the Vols’ season-opening . . .
The Vols are in Pre-Season Practices and they are in pads, so it is near “Football Time in Tennessee!”. Butch is going into his 5th year as the Vol’s coach and this year is different in many ways from his first four years at the Vol Helm.
I wanted to take a few weeks after the O&W Game to let the dust settle and digest what we learned from the Spring. In looking at the Spring we need to remember that the primary focus is first on development of individual players, second . . .
It has been a while and a lot has happened in the past month, since we do not gather for lunch weekly, I decided to round up some thoughts from the past few weeks on several subjects.
Happy New Year to all of you. Things are “Popping” on the Hill and I thought it would be nice to look at what Butch is doing and the “Context” of the environment that he is working in.
Tennessee will play in its 52nd bowl game on Dec. 30, when the Vols take on No. 24/21 Nebraska in the 2016 Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl at Nissan Stadium in Nashville.
I decided to do a few Pre-Holiday Notes for Vol Fans. While exams and no games have had things quiet on the Football game side, things have been popping on the Hill.
We are in the “Silly Season”. The players in Knoxville are in exams for the next week. No team practices on campus.
