    2021 Football Time in Tennessee cover

    It isn't supposed to read the way an announcer would say it. In print journalism, it's common practice to drop articles in headlines and subheads for brevity. In fact, some professors will teach their students strictly to not use any articles in headlines. There's nothing wrong with the cover.

    There's nothing grammatically incorrect about that.

    Years we should have been in the NC game

    Obviously '99 and '01 are two years that stand out. The '99 team was talented enough to be back in the BCSNCG. The '01 team played itself into position to be until the choke against LSU in the SECCG. But the '89-'91 teams were all super talented. IMO, that 1990 team was the most talented team...

    Randomly meeting a Vol Stories

    I have another random Vol meeting story that ranks up there among my personal favorites, too. In the mid 2000s, I was involved in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program and took my "little brother" to a UT basketball game. I don't remember the opponent, but I remember it was COLD. We got to the...

    Randomly meeting a Vol Stories

    When I was in high school, we took a school trip to UT. I don't even remember what we were there for, but a couple of buddies and myself were roaming past the stadium and a gate was open. Even though we were diehard fans and knew all the players' names and stats by heart, none of us had ever...

    Attendance at Orange and White Game?

    Not even close. Cut that number in half, and you're probably pretty close.

    Vols will NOT be in the Music City Bowl vs Louisville (merged)

    Do you really believe that? Surely you don't. No, the Music City Bowl does not outrank the Gator Bowl. Give them credit for trying to get there by pouring more money into payouts but in terms of prestige it really isn't close...which is why the Gator Bowl is played Thursday in prime time and the...

    Vols on upset alert in week 10

    Not concerned in the least about UAB. This team is light years ahead of where it was against Georgia State and BYU. The veteran leadership has stepped up, the freshmen have grown up. The OL has figured it out, the defense has turned a corner, and QB play is worlds ahead of where it was back...

    Athletes getting paid.....terrible idea

    One thing that shouldn't be lost in this conversation is this: When it comes to the net impact to individual programs, this will not hurt Tennessee very fact, it might actually help. I understand the argument about the large markets, and that's true to a point, but let's be cautious...

    Athletes getting paid.....terrible idea

    The hyperbole aside, none of those had anything to do with $$. (Well, the playoff is definitely a revenue-generator but I don't think that was the primary motivation behind it.) There's a reason the NCAA has worked so hard (sometimes failing, sometimes exposing its own hypocrisy in the process)...

    Athletes getting paid.....terrible idea

    What's most interesting to me is that the state that is least friendly to capitalism is the state that spearheaded this conversation. There is definitely irony there.

    Athletes getting paid.....terrible idea

    It seems like the primary argument in favor of "paying players" is based on the idea that college athletics programs are flush with cash. That's not necessarily true, though. Sure, big-time college athletics programs are big-time revenue producers...but they're also big-time spenders. Forbes...

    Athletes getting paid.....terrible idea

    It's a complicated issue that everyone is trying to pigeonhole and fit into tidy little "for it" or "against it" boxes. But the reality is that this issue is going to sink college football as we know it...and that's sad.

    Ainge on who should start at QB

    I think Maurer is the best QB on the roster. But, listen, all JG has done is take all the crap that this fan base (myself included) has flung at him, the shameful booing every time he steps onto the field, the social media garbage, and he's gone out and won us two huge SEC games.

    Did the ball break the plane?

    No. The ball did not break the plane. But it was tough to overturn it once the call was made. My beef is with the fact that there were FOUR touchdowns called that weren't really touchdowns in that first half. Replay overturned 3 of them. Never seen that before in my life and don't expect to ever...
