For every coach who turned mid-to-low-major success into major success – Matt Campbell, James Franklin, Dan Mullen – there are coaches who aced level one but struggled with level two: Scott Frost, Justin Fuente, Charlie Strong. You never know.
Joel and Will wade through the wreckage of Monday’s press conference announcing several for-cause terminations, including that of Jeremy Pruitt, and Phillip Fulmer’s retirement.
The common denominator in conversations I’ve had with friends and family today: will we have the patience for what comes next? Is there any other way to be? I guess that’s always been the allure of Gruden, Freeze, Pearl’s return, and other Tennessee fairy tales: the corresponding myth of the […]
Four Factors Forecast for the Vols: Advantages for the Vols over the Gators in turnovers, rebounding, getting to the free throw line, and on defense.
The Vols, we think, are back in action tomorrow against Vanderbilt. Tennessee lost a date with South Carolina on Tuesday, then lost the reshuffled trip to Nashville, but we’re hopeful we’ll see the Vols and ‘Dores in Knoxville tomorrow (6:00 PM, SEC Network). The SEC left the final Saturday of […]

Our Statsy Preview Machine has uncovered the primary question for tonight’s national championship game: Is Ohio State’s offense more like Florida’s or Notre Dame’s?
Ten games in, we’d normally be 33% of the way through the regular season. But depending on whether Tennessee’s game with South Carolina gets rescheduled, we’re more like 40-42% of the way home this year. Either way, we’ve got enough data to draw a couple of meaningful conclusions about this […]
Four Factors Forecast for the Vols: An all-you-can-eat buffet on the offensive boards with turnovers for dessert! But A&M draws fouls like roadkill draws flies, so watch out for that.
In the midst of what feels like perpetual uncertainty, a surprise: the Vols picked up a transfer portal commitment from Virginia Tech quarterback Hendon Hooker. I live in the Blacksburg “metro”, and have spent nine of the last 15 years in southwest Virginia. I’m by no means an expert on […]
