Vols at the SEC Tournament

By Alex Norman The commonly held view was that Tennessee, losers of 8 of their previous 10 games, would be a quick out at the SEC Tournament. But if we learned anything about this Vols basketball team, it is to expect that they won’t go quietly. In Tennessee’s first game in Nashville, against rival Vanderbilt, […]

Bearden Plays in the State Tournament Run

By Alex Norman For only the third time in program history, the Bearden Lady Bulldogs were playing in the state tournament. And they were doing all they could to make the most of the opportunity. Bearden played in the first game of the entire tournament in Murfreesboro against Dickson County on the morning of Wednesday, […]

Your move, Butch Jones…

By Alex Norman During the Derek Dooley era, the Tennessee football program suffered through one self-inflicted public relations mistake after another. From Dooley’s lack of public discipline with regards to quarterback Tyler Bray, to his goofy press conferences, to the lack of relationship building with high school football coaches, to the “Opportunity Is  Nowhere” door […]

Reason to Celebrate: Vols Welcome Class of 2015

By Alex Norman It might seem presumptuous, considering that most of these kids have never played a down of college football at any level.  But the potential that Tennessee’s recruiting class, a consensus top 5 group nationally, brings to Knoxville is off the charts. “Today is really a combination of one to two years of […]

The Super Bowl I Don’t Want To Watch

By Alex Norman Normally when the Super Bowl rolls around I can always find a reason to root for one of the teams… but I’m not going to lie.  I’m rooting for Glendale to be overrun by zombies because you would be hard pressed to find two teams that are more unlikeable than the AFC […]

James Winston… to the Tennessee Titans?

By Alex Norman There are two constants in life.  The first I forget.  The second is that the Tennessee Titans will continue to be the most boring team in the National Football League. They haven’t won a playoff game since the 2003 season and haven’t been to the playoffs since January 2009. They have gone […]

The Hubris of Lane Kiffin

By Alex Norman The smartest guy in the room… well, the guy who thinks he is the smartest guy in the room… he’s never really the smartest guy in the room, you know? The smartest guy in the room is actually so smart that he makes sure that no one knows that he is the […]

2015: A look ahead

By Alex Norman 2014 is in its dying stages but good news loyal readers… a brand new year is about to kick off. Instead of waiting to see what happens in the sports world over those 365 days, I’ve dusted off the handy dandy crystal ball and found out exactly what is going to occur. […]

Football Leads to Madness Once Again in Knoxville

By Alex Norman And it has begun… I was listening to local sports talk radio the other day and heard a caller say that if Vols head coach Butch Jones leaves Tennessee to take the Michigan job that UT should try to hire Dan Mullen away from Mississippi State or Gus Malzahn from Auburn. Well, […]

Lane Kiffin’s Return to Knoxville

By Alex Norman Admit it… you can’t wait to see what happens at when the Vols and Crimson Tide renew their rivalry on Saturday night at Neyland Stadium. I’m not talking about the game itself.  Tennessee hasn’t beaten Alabama since 2006 and will be hard pressed to end that streak this year. But the atmosphere […]
