Tennessee’s season came to an inglorious end Saturday, losing to Kentucky for the first time since 1984. It was a season of firsts for the Vols, unfortunately none of them good. *1st ever 7 loss SEC Season *1st team to not win on the road all year *1st team to finish last in the SEC […]

Tennessee went to Fayetteville Saturday. I think that may have been the highlight: The fact that there was a game on.   The Good The top 6 tacklers on Saturday were first-year guys, and all have at least 2 more years of eligibility left: Izauea Lanier, Curt Maggitt, Justin Coleman, Brian Randolph, Mo Couch, and […]

Another Tuesday, another round of Dooleyisms: This is one of the few things that can make a loss bearable: On South Carolina     Brent Brewer tore his ACL so he is out for the year. (It’s) unfortunate, but we have to put the next guy in and go play. We are going to start […]

Another Tuesday, another round of Dooleyisms. Let’s get to it: On New Starters: From a personnel standpoint, we are going to keep tinkering around in the secondary because we just aren’t playing as good as we need to be. Prentiss (Waggner) and Izauea (Lanier) will still be out there at corner starting out with (Brian) […]

Saturday was awesome for a half. I wasn’t sure of a victory at any point Saturday, but I liked the way we competed in the first half in that hostile environment. 6-6 at the half…and we’ll stop there. Now on to the good, bad and ugly. The Good Mike Palardy had his best game ever […]

It’s the week of Tennessee-Alabama, one of the most iconic Southern college football rivalries. Monday I discussed 1998 as my third favorite installment of UT-UA. Today I move to my second: 1986 Alabama 56-28 1987 Alabama 41-22 1988 Alabama 28-20 1989 Alabama 47-30 1990 Alabama 9-6 1991 Alabama 24-19 1992 Alabama 17-10 1993 17-17 tie. […]

Not much to say other than we just aren’t good enough to beat LSU right now, so let’s jump right in. The Good For the second week in a row, Devrin Young makes this list. After all the return game struggles in 2010, it’s nice to see a real weapon back there returning kicks.  I […]

Derek Dooley’s 2012 class got a valuable addition Thursday night. Four-star defensive tackle Danny O’Brien of Flint, Michigan chose the Vols over the Wolverines yesterday. Tennessee was considered to be in the driver’s seat for a long time for O’Brien’s services, but the Wolverine’s dramatic comeback win over Notre Dame caused some people (probably people […]

Since Tennessee missed last week, we’ll let them go first this week: Buffalo vs. Tennessee What Mike said: This game is over soon after toe hits leather. Matt Darr never sees the field. UT has the ball nine times and scores nine times Final Score UT 51-10 What Steve said: Jokes will be made that the Vols […]

Tennessee did what Tennessee was supposed to do to an overmatched MAC team. They jumped ahead early and pulled away. Not a whole lot else to talk about so we’ll jump right into the Good, The Bad and The Ugly. The Good. Pretty much everything. Tyler Bray was again special, with a 21-30 performance for […]
