Three-Star linebacker Kenneth Bynum of Jacksonville became the 22nd and final piece of Derek Dooley’s class. Bynum was a long-time commit to Cincinnati, and didn’t pick up his Volunteer offer until the de-commitments from Dalton Santos and Otha Peters came in. The Volunteers offered late in the game, and Bynum didn’t even visit until after […]

One of my favorite¬† press conference of the year is the Signing Day presser. It’s all positive, and I am a positive person. It’s the first time we get to hear Dooley talk about the kids we’ve read about for weeks or months. It’s Signing Day Dooleyisms! On the class in general: It’s like coach’s […]

Signing Day is upon us once again. In the last couple of days UT did lose two highly ranked recruits: Dalton Santos to Texas, which was his boyhood dream, and Otha Peters who, rightly or not, is concerned about Derek Dooley’s job situation, and signed with Arkansas. But today is not for that. Today is […]

Over the weekend, one of the best corners in the Southeast, four-star corner Deion Bonner, of Columbus, GA made his verbal pledge to the University of Tennessee. From a purely football standpoint Bonner is a no-brainer addition to Derek Dooley’s class of 2012, he is a multi-talented, big, corner who could compete for playing time […]

Derek Dooley has long said that Tennessee needs to get bigger, faster and stronger. Well Saturday, UT got faster for sure, when four-star corner Otis Jacobs committed to Tennessee.

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 […]

Tennessee rolled yesterday, after a touchdown laden first quarter that saw the score knotted at 14, UT went on a 31-9 run to end the game. It was a fun game to watch as a Vol fan. I don’t know if Cincinnati is good or not. Their defense isn’t, but their offense might be. Hard […]

“Coaches tell me that they like my aggressive nature. I’ve always been that way. I’ve had good instincts. I’ve been catching the football ever since I could walk. To me it’s not about what’s going on around me. It’s my love and passion for the game. I live to knock the piss out of someone […]

UT got it’s twelfth commitment of the 2012 recruiting class when Knoxville West kicker George Bullock called Jim Chaney today and committed. Bullock’s only other main offer was from the Naval Academy. UT has had a strong history of kickers including, but not limited to, Fuad Reveiz, John Beksvoort, Jeff Hall, and James Wilhoit. Since […]
