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.
It may have been a Fall afternoon and the weather was better than forecast earlier in the week but it was still a very chilly and windy game day in Knoxville yesterday.
It has been a beautiful Fall Weekend for Football in Tennessee. Yesterday’s Homecoming
A busy weekend and week as well. Early this year I felt well about the Bama Game with the Vol’s talent and depth with experience.
What a game and despite the Vol’s loss the Sun came up this morning. I was worn out when the game ended. . .
Another “Win” with a capital “W”. The Vols came from behind again, but the game was much different than earlier games.
What a game and the Post Game in Neyland was “Special”. Most fans just stood there and rejoiced in the moment.
