    Elizabethton Cyclones beat Greeneville

    Saw the game on tv locally. The Wide receiver Parker Hughs and the running back Youngblood killed it for Elizabethton! Their quarterback is sold and can make the throws. The kicker can hit the field goal and can kickoff into the endzone. The defense stepped it up in the second half. Good hard...

    "UT Football is 5x worse than you think it is."

    The first problem we are dealing with is the ability to play the 3/4 defensive scheme. Just plain and simple. Tennessee's best years we yearn for were 4/3 with Fulmer and that was how we won and it was our bread and butter. It's tough to change from a defense that worked and then became...

    The Magic will Return to Knoxville

    Hess Hall is classic! We snuck a keg on the 5th floor. What is funny everybody in the dorm knew it but nobody said anything about it! Go Vols!!!

    Star ratings good and getting better.

    You might add who actually panned out in the NFL and who are currently on a team?

    My Favorite Vol Running Back... “The Bull.”

    I am a Jamal Lewis fan. But, in my day and time it was Johnny Jones who got UT off and running at that position. However the one guy that fought you for every yard that I attribute bringing us to the promised land was Little Man Stewart.

    It's going to take both Turner and Bowden!

    NCAA Tournament Thread

    Louisville has no inside D. Too many layups and put backs. Looserville probably describe it best!! Bracket busted on the first game out of the shoot. Oh well, I've got the Orange winning it all, still something to pull for.

    UT scouting report for Colgate, Iowa, Cincy fans

    Long season back to back games with Kentucky, a physically demanding game. Then Auburn the quickest toughest to defend from the 3 equals tired from a long season! They've had a few days to get their legs back underneath them and I'm sure they are primed to make a deep run in tournament. It's all...

    Is it just us...

    Agree with ebbs and flows. Football is funny for a lot of teams because it takes a special player or coach to change the landscape of a team. Neyland had one of the greatest runs for the vols with defense and Fulmer was a offense guy. I think Pruit is building defenses that will sprinkle in...

    BTO’s Auburn’s SECT edition postgame report

    I agree! The only team I've seen shoot the three like Auburn is Marquette. That's it other than the guy at Wofford.

    Which 2 seed has it worst/hardest?

    I think the question should be, who has the easiest 2 seed. I think Kentucky has the easiest path to the final 4!! We should win our corner of the bracket but, the elite 8, I don't know. Virginia is probably the most beatable for us of the 1 seeds. Go Big Orange!!

    Tennessee Drops to 8th in AP Poll

    If the Vols win the SEC tournament they should be a No. 1 seed. If they don't they could fall all the way to a 3 seed, which will probably be based on SOS and all the other metrics. It will be on them and the breaks in the SEC tournament.

    Holly Seat Is On Fire Needs A Miracle And Fast !

    It would be nice to see a team coached up to a level of a simple college team. She has not shown any ability to develop any kind of offense. It's just dribble around until the shot clock is about to expire then sling one up. On defense, it's nonexistent!!

    Quick turn arounds....

    It's kind of hard to have the NBA on when Duke and North Carolina playing on the same channel at the same time!!

    Quick turn arounds....

    I think a little bit of this problem is driven by other conferences like the ACC. The Duke/North Carolina game was on Wednesday. Being Kentucky is the big draw for the media market for the SEC, then I'm sure ESPN or the SEC doesn't want to be up against that game. Just a thought. Go Vols!

    Gameplan vs Kentucky?

    The biggest weakness is the defense against transition 3s on the fast break. Those are tough for anybody to defend. In our base halfcout defense I think you'll notice our 3 point defense to be very efficient. Those transition 3s will get you beat ask Louisville!!

    Showing off polling ability - Grade this year's recruiting class

    It's an A-. We needed a stud running back like Trey Sanders. It changes the dynamics of the team. I'm hoping for or wishful thinking about Zachery Evans out of Texas in 2020. A solid RB like Jamal Lewis or Travis Henry who can make a 2 yd run to 5 yds by breaking tackles changes the flow of the...

    Re-do on blown game

    I'll agree! In the stands for both of those games. Matter of fact, was sitting with my sister a UGA student at the time with her future husband also a UGA student, right straight down the goal line. I remember because it struck me at the time I was perfectly right down the line. Then Glen Ford...

    Questions about Lady Vol team

    Agreed! I've fussed at Holly in post before, then I see her recruiting classes and think just maybe? False hope along with no player development. It is what it is. When the lady Vols win is when they get the lucky bounces and nothing more!
