Gameday Today: SEC Tourney Time

If you watch only one Vols-related thing this morning . . .

. . . make it this from the SEC Network:

That’s some high-grade and particularly tasty rat poison right there.


The thing is, the Vols are really in a nice sort of win-win situation this weekend. They could win the SEC Tournament, which would be cool, but if they lose, hey, they get more rest (and possibly some additional motivation) for the more important NCAA Tournament.

That, of course, does not mean that they aren’t working:

Mississippi State beat LSU last night 80-77, so Tennessee’s opponent at 7:00 p.m. tonight will be the Bulldogs. The game is on the SEC Network. Be sure to check out Will’s preview of the game. We’ll have the game thread posted later this afternoon.


Jeremy Pruitt has added former Alabama nutritionist Rachel Pfister to Tennessee’s staff.

Over at Bleacher Report, Brad says that Tennessee could maybe nab former Clemson running back C.J. Fuller as a grad transfer.

VFL Al Wilson has been inducted into the Senior Bowl Hall of Fame.

Other fun stuff

Not funny is this deplorable evidence of a culture problem at a company owned by a prominent Tennessee booster.

SiriusXM now has an SEC radio channel.
