Florida Grandpa Sees for the First Time

  There are moments in life that people never forget. We all remember the scene in Homeward Bound when all the dogs come running over the hill and on to the front porch, or when Nemo is reunited with his parents. Everyone loves a feel-good moment in life. When this Florida Grandpa puts on a…

Vols Spring Practice: April 11th

  Tennessee is at the midway point of spring camp and another practice is in the books. The media was allowed three viewing periods, but per usual, we didn’t see much. I spent the majority of my time with the quarterbacks and special teams units.  We didn’t really see any passing drills.  During the open…

Bidding farewell to Dobbs

  What can you say about #11 in orange? Well, quite a bit. As a senior in high school in 2012, Josh Dobbs made a name for himself.  Hailing from Alpharetta, GA, Dobbs was a four-star prospect and the No. 10 pro-style quarterback (yes, that’s correct) in the country according to 247 Sports. Even though…

Trey Smith v. Jonathan Kongbo: What does it mean?

Tennessee ranks #19 in ESPN’s 2017 Football Power Index

Why not! ESPN released their first cut at the 2017 Football Power Index earlier this week, and it’s fairly similar to what they released in January. The formula, to my knowledge, is based on returning stats, team talent, schedule, and other factors. Anyway, Tennessee ranks 19th. Probably more surprising is Tennessee being sandwiched between two…

Tim Tebow might not have actually hit a home run

After a pretty miserable time during Spring Training with the Mets, the team elected to send former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow down to its Class A affiliate, the Columbia Fireflies. Yeah, one of the best college quarterbacks of all time plays for a team called the Fireflies. Anyway, Tebow allegedly hit a home run in…

The SEC East coaches mirror the original Seven Dwarfs

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is the oldest Disney feature film and the oldest Disney princess film, providing viewers with a timeless tale of friendship and true love. While football doesn’t offer much relation to most of the movie, the SEC East coaches fit the personalities of the seven dwarfs in the movie. Doc: Doc, the…

Vol Madness: The Winner is…

Catch vs Catch When Jauan Jennings caught the Hail Mary pass Tennessee fans immediately thought 2016 would be a season of destiny. When Peerless Price caught a 79 yard bomb for a touchdown Tennessee fans immediately realized the odds of Tennessee wining the National Title were very high. Jennings catch will be remembered as one…

Tennessee Spring Practice: April 4th

  “It’s Technique Tuesday!!” That was the theme constantly being yelled over the sound system today.  The music was full of oldies including ACDC, Tom Jones, and Earth, Wind & Fire, straying away from the usual Drake or as Butch likes to say, “FloRIDER.” The media was allowed five consecutive open periods which is the…
