On to this year in Knoxville, first a look at basketball. The Vols are solid at # 3 in the National Rankings and in shouting distance of the # 1 Ranking.
Today has been a beautiful Fall day in Tennessee. After the Vols win, the Titans drilled New England, the Lady Vols won big, and things looked good going forward.. .
An early start on this week’s notes with the time change. We finally had the weather for a Fall Football weekend. That was fitting for Homecoming. . .
It is a beautiful day and the Vols are preparing for Home Coming after a tough loss to the Gamecocks last Saturday in Columbia. What a game. A tough loss for this young team . . .
There were some positives and unfortunately more negatives (a lot of those were created by Bama) in the Vol’s play. For the Vols it is now on to the rest of the SEC for their November run.
This is going to be short and a bit tart. This game is like the Auburn Game on Steroids. We need to remember that it is a TENNESSEE HOME GAME and “History” says that the Vols have a chance.
I took a bit of time on these notes. I listened to Doug Mathews on Sunday Morning and then watched the Jeremy Pruitt Show. A TV Guy, Jeremy is not at all, but for his show he is seeing film. . .
The past few days have been busy, and I have heard from several of you. Some Gloom and Doom, some ALL GLOOM, some Questions, and a lot of disappointment over the Gator game. . .
At one-point last night I thought, “Where is the weather delay when you need it?”. When you lose the turnover battle you usually lose the game. . .
Well, it is “Florida Week” and the Gators are coming to town. A new coach but they are the same old Gators, they are still the same team that all Vol Fans love to hate. . .
It was a “Wild” Weekend for Football in both college and the Pros. I have never seen so many games impacted by weather for two days in a row. . .
The Sun came up this morning and every other team in the SEC East won big and looked pretty good. Noting that no one other than the Vols played a Top 25 ranked team. . .
There are four things that have a significant impact on the success of any team on the playing field. First on that list is the individual talent of the players relative to their opponents . . .
I wondered how the Fall Practices would work. In the “Good Ole Days” in the Spring and the Fall, coaches would do “Two-A-Days” and say be tough. Reality is that ran kids into the ground. Conditioning suffered . . .
I have good expectations for this team, and I expect some surprises as the season gores forward. This team may lose a game they are favored to win, but I doubt it. I think that this team will win a game or more that . . .
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.,
