The 2012 Tennessee Volunteer football season concluded on Saturday. The Vols won’t see the field for 278 more days. That’s a long long time. Hopefully soon there will be some tangible news on who the next coach will be for the University of Tennessee. But until we get something tangible…let’s review one final time. The [...]

Tennessee went to Columbia yesterday. The story is a familiar one. The Vols played well, but not well enough. There were bright spots in Williams-Brice stadium, and I am assuming, that many of the 86,000 Gamecock fans in attendance were nervous that the Volunteers were going to steal a game late. To the objective and [...]

The Vols had a late kickoff Saturday in Starkville, MS. I didn’t fall asleep until well after 2am after the 41-31 loss. So many thoughts were swirling through my head. I am trying to figure out what part of UT’s recent past is because of Derek Dooley, or in spite of him. I am still [...]

I have spent a lot of time in the last 36 hours trying to figure out how to analyze this game. Dooley always says “It’s never as good as it seems; it’s never as bad as it seems”. So I have been trying to keep that in mind. After some self-reflection, maybe I was more [...]

Herman Lathers and Curt Maggitt will sit this weekend against Georgia St. Lathers still has a dinged shoulder, no surprise since he missed much of the second half last week. Maggitt, oh Maggitt. He has turf toe. That lingering jerk of an injury has snuck up on UT’s most dynamic defender. The good news is, [...]

Biggest Loss I hope this is nobody. If you are missing somebody from a 5-7 team, then you aren’t gonna be very good this year either. But for the sake of argument, I am going to say Malik Jackson. He seems like he would be a perfect defensive end in the new 3-4 system being [...]

Biggest Loss Isaiah Crowell, he missed two games last year and still had 901 yards on the ground as a true freshman. It’s safe to say that Bulldog nation had high hopes for Crowell heading into his sophomore year. Alas Crowell was arrested on multiple weapons charges, and dismissed from the school on June 29th. [...]

Biggest Loss Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey tied. Two players who had legitimate take-it-to-the-house-potential every time they touched the ball. These two guys were the last remaining threats from the Urban Meyer era. Nobody on the Gators currently has that kind of firepower. No, Trey Burton, I didn’t forget about you. It remains to be [...]

  Biggest Loss Part of me really wants to say Jay Graham. That is probably the homer in me. Though it would be pretty awesome to see Tennessee’s run game drastically improve, and to see the Gamecock running game flounder. But with Marcus Lattimore back and presumably healthy, that seems unlikely. Still it was amazing [...]

Hmmmm, seriously? Typing this just feels wrong. Missouri is not a Southern school. It just isn’t. Is it too late to trade the Tigers for the Virginia Tech Hokies? Yes, it is. Dang. Ok, well apparently Missouri is now in the SEC. 2012 Missouri Preview
