A big congrats to Krusher, who took our regular season confidence points trophy with a record of 194-76 straight up and 2,188 confidence points. That was just enough to get past GeorgeMonkey (2,183), with Jahiegel and wedflatrock (2,178) tying for third. Rounding out the Top 10 are several old friends […]
Tennessee Volunteers football news, information, commentary, and analysis. Gameday on Rocky Top is a community of reasonable fanatics all sharing a passion for Tennessee athletics. Scores, game previews and recaps, and more, all often with a touch of humor.
Two years and at least two lifetimes ago, Tennessee almost went back to the Music City Bowl. The last minute switch to the Gator Bowl was a welcome one, carrying January prestige and tradition. I don’t know if there’s a clear answer to the idea of that switch this year; […]
What’s a good distraction while we watch the coaching carousel spin? Here are the latest round of bowl projections, with only the championship games left to play. In the SEC, three teams are locked into the College Football Playoff and New Year’s Six. I don’t see any amount of weirdness […]
The Vols handled their business against South Alabama, and picked up a couple of desired results elsewhere in the bowl pecking order. Auburn, once 6-2 and still alive for Atlanta, is now staring at 6-6 unless they can beat Alabama. And Florida fell to 5-6 and fired Dan Mullen, which […]
Win totals are at the bottom if you want to finish the run, but Tennessee’s schedule should leave everyone somewhere between 6.8-7.0 wins. With one ranked win in hand and a pair of satisfying blowouts behind it, the Vols can get one more opportunity at a win that resonates in […]
So, how do we win this thing? The question itself is already a bit of a win. The last three times we did this against #1, it was Bama in 2017-19. And the Vols were +36.5, +29.5, and +34.5. I can live with +20.5 this week. Our community gives the […]
So, you’re going to project the Vols to finish with right at seven wins this week. The math involved is if you give Tennessee enough of a chance against Georgia to counterbalance whatever chance you give South Alabama and Vanderbilt against Tennessee. But it’s a pretty safe bet to assume […]
We bask in the glow of a big road win against a ranked team, peek in on the GRT Pick ‘Em standings, and hit on Georgia, Vols hoops, and theme songs.
Last night’s win still feels a bit like a relief. It’s unfair in some ways: any win over a ranked team still falls in the celebration category for Tennessee. You have to go back 15 years to find the Vols beating a Top 20 foe on the road (Georgia 2006, […]
Two teams and several lifetimes ago, one of our favorite villains said something like, “We’ll make the free throws we need to make.” In a new era that feels increasingly like watching a basketball game, Josh Heupel got his first win over a ranked team in the Bluegrass. The offense […]
