VolNation's Grand Poobah
- Oct 22, 2003
I don't know what it is, but something about these photos from UT this morning made the hair on my arm stand up and caused it click with me that we're now less than two weeks until the home opener and football time in Tennessee --- The Vol Navy, the Pride of the Southland, Rocky Top, Smokey dogs (you know I had to mention them), the Vol Walk, running through the T, and everything else that goes along with a fall Saturday in Knoxville. It's almost time!
I haven't decided exactly how I feel about the upcoming season yet. I can see both reasons for optimism and causes for concern. My Battered Vol Syndrome makes me cautious and I'm trying to NOT to add two wins to my season projections like I normally do this time of year and keep expectations in check, but that doesn't mean I'm any less excited.
Regardless of how the story of 2019 ends up written in the history books, it's a very special time of year, for a number of reasons, and as I've gotten older I appreciate all the little things that go along with the season a bit more. I can't wait to embark on the next chapter of Tennessee football this year along with all you fine people (you guys are the best, by the way).
Here's to the 2019 Vols. Soon!
