If you read only one thing about the Vols today . . .
make it this, from Will Shelton of Gameday on Rocky Top:
Curation on a day like today is especially difficult due to the flood of so many great options, but nobody does it better than Will. Like Ward, Will tells great stories with a grand economy of words. To Tennesseans, Ward was indeed The Voice.
