Gameday on Rocky Top 2019 preseason magazine now available

Gameday on Rocky Top 2019 hits the newsstands all over the state of Tennessee (and select locations in neighboring states) sometime late next week, but as a reader of this website, you can get it right now at a discount and with free shipping to boot. Use code GRT2019 for $2 off.

The vast majority of these are going to end up on the newsstands, but we’ve reserved a few hundred copies for direct sales, and they arrived here yesterday. You can get them directly from us earlier and at a discount, and you don’t even have to leave your house.

As always, our Gameday magazine is More of Your Favorite Team and No Ads. Go ahead and count the pages and compare it to the others on the newsstands. Most preseason publications try to cover every team, which is cool and all, but it means you’re paying for content you’re probably not even reading. We narrow our focus and go deeper on the teams you care most about and carefully select the articles so we’re not printing stuff you’re probably going to ignore. In Gameday on Rocky Top, we have 48 pages of content devoted exclusively to the 2019 Tennessee Volunteers, and the other 64 pages focus on the Vols’ 2019 opponents, along with their competition in the SEC and the national Top 25. This narrower focus means you’re not paying for pages you’re not reading. Our publication is still currently ad-free as well, meaning you’re also not paying for content you’re trying to ignore. 🙂

The newsstand price is $12.99, but while supplies last you can get $2 off and free shipping if you get it directly from us. To get the discount, use the following coupon code at checkout:


As always, we had an awesome time putting this together for you this year. The conversation we have about the cover every year is one of my favorite discussions each and every time. As you can see, we settled on an image of Guarantano because it’s an awesome picture from our photographer Bryan Lynn and LC Action Photos and because Guarantano’s the point man in the Search for the Tipping Point, a phrase that we consider the theme of the season. If you’re not already familiar with Malcolm Gladwell’s book The Tipping Point, go Google it for the context. The short explanation as it applies to Rocky Top this year is this: Pruitt has made a lot positive changes this offseason. He’s hired Chaney, Ansley, and Martin. He’s infused the offensive line with some incredible talent (albeit young). He’s avoided a potential catastrophe along the defensive line of scrimmage, and he’s now poised to reap the benefits of moving immediately to the 3-4 and throwing some young guys into the fire early last year. The potential has been there, but it’s been trapped in a bottleneck, impeded by problems that limited the effectiveness of everything else. And with just a few more positive changes in those areas this offseason, we’re hoping to see a Tipping Point, the point at which everything finally clicks.

Go Vols.

Picked up an issue in Walmart in Asheville NC. Pleasantly surprised that they were available out that way. I really enjoy the new design of the articles you guys went with this year and a great read as always!
