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 […]

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.
The four factors forecast for Tennessee’s game against the Arkansas Razorbacks tonight calls for patchy, dense defense.
