  1. During this time I know things have been slow. I do hope all of you that are members of Voltalk have a safe and terrific 4th of July. I have changed the theme of the site to a color background that shows that we at Voltalk truly support America. This is not a political opinion post. We will though support this country and show respect here. PERIOD. Thank God for America. Thank God for Vol fans. Thank God for all the people who have died to allow this country to be one of the greatest in history. It is not as bad as the news makes it. It is not terrible and I have been quiet on this for a long time. I would ask people start thinking during this holiday about the good things in this country and quit whining about the few bad things. Again, this not to open a political discourse. This is just to say we live in the freest and best country in the world. Let us all appreciate that for one day please. I hope all of our members enjoy the holiday and stay safe out there. Go Vols and GBO! I will leave this theme up for the week. Enjoy.
  2. Just a vol public service announcement lol
  3. Just in case you all missed this: On Monday, Sankey joined The Rich Eisen Show to talk about college football in 2020. Sankey said that he thinks by late July, the SEC will know whether or not it is playing college football this year. “I think that’s probably a late-July time period. My thinking has shifted a bit,” Sankey said. “We started June 8 after a two-week oversight, diagnostic medical exam period for these voluntary activities. We’ll have three or four weeks — on the 13th of July is when a little bit more practice can begin. I think we deserve the chance to see how that progresses. I would say before we get into full-blown practice, you’re going to be in that decision-making process as it relates to what happens on Labor Day weekend, which is the scheduled start of the season.” This comes as good news for schools in the SEC and their fans. However, there is still an issue about if other conferences would follow their lead, if the SEC decided to play. All in-conference teams will be on the field if the SEC says so, but that doesn’t mean every SEC team’s entire schedule will be. Alabama is set to face off against USC from the Pac-12 Conference in a massive game in Arlington, Texas. Ole Miss is supposed to face Big 12 foe Baylor to start its season in Houston. Vanderbilt is scheduled to travel to Kansas State in the early weeks of the season. And those are just a few examples.

  5. Not looking good with the B-Ball Team A second Tennessee basketball player has tested positive for COVID-19, according to Tennessee sports information director Tom Satkowiak. The Knoxville News Sentinel initially reported the second case. The basketball program on Friday afternoon reported the first positive test, following the players reporting to campus on June 15. The identity was not released for either player. So far the basketball players are the only two positive tests since players began returning to campus two weeks ago. Over 90 football players began reporting June 8, with the only positive test being a graduate-assistant staff member. Both basketball players went into quarantine following the positive tests. “After testing several domestic members of our men’s and women’s basketball teams, one male student-athlete tested positive for COVID-19,” Satkowiak said in a statement Friday afternoon, reporting the first positive case. “With a plan already in place, our Sports Medicine staff immediately activated isolation and contact-tracing protocol in collaboration with the Knox County Health Department. “We are encouraged by this affirmation that our procedures work.” The Vols are still awaiting the international return of guard Santiago Vescovi, from Uruguay, and center Uros Plavsic, from Serbia. With students returning to campus, University of Tennessee housing provides rooms for self-isolation, according to the school: “In consultation with health experts, University Housing is holding rooms open to serve as isolation housing for residential students who test positive for COVID-19 and those who need to self-isolate due to potential exposure. Students who need to self-isolate will be provided with contact information from University Housing.” Football coach Jeremy Pruitt said Thursday during a Zoom call with reporters that no players have tested positive for COVID-19 since initially returning to campus on June 8. While on campus, Tennessee athletes are following social distance guidelines when possible, wearing masks while inside campus facilities and are working out in smaller groups while locker rooms remain closed, in efforts to limit the spread of the virus. Tennessee basketball players were sent home on March 12, after the spreading coronavirus cancelled the SEC Tournament at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville roughly an hour before the Vols were set to face Alabama.

  6. UT struggled early last year as well. However, down the stretch, they found their rotation under new offensive coordinator Jim Chaney and became very reliable. Now, heading into this year, SEC Network’s Cole Cubelic beleives they have a top five offensive line nationally. Cubelic had Tennessee football’s line ranked at No. 4, with the Alabama Crimson Tide, Ohio State Buckeyes and Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Nos. 1, 2 and 3 respectively. He had the Oklahoma Sooners at No. 5 and put his list out on Twitter.

  9. I am not sure I agree with this but I think that IF there is a season I believe the Vols will win at least 8 games this season. Just my thought on this. It looks like Jeremy Pruitt has another prediction to overcome if he wants to improve Tennessee football in his third year. As many people on Rocky Top fear could happen despite the Vols’ improvements, College Football News projects the program to repeat its 2019 campaign. The longtime website covering FBS projected the Vols to go 7-5 in its predictions for every 2021 game among SEC East teams. It also named UT three players on its preseason All-SEC Team: offensive linemen Trey Smith and Wanya Morris and place kicker Brent Cimaglia. A 7-5 record is exactly what the ESPN FPI has for Tennessee football as well. It’s not that the Vols aren’t expected to be much better. They just happen to have a much tougher schedule this year, and they lose some key players, which raises lots of concerns beyond them returning a ton of talent and having a top 10 recruiting class.

  10. If he lives up to the expectations set for him this year, Trey Smith’s decision to stay for his senior season with Tennessee football could end up paying dividends. He continues to be a projected high NFL Draft pick for 2021, something that wasn’t guaranteed if he entered in 2020. A rising senior guard on the Vols offensive line, Smith was projected to go No. 30 to the Baltimore Ravens in an updated two-round mock NFL Draft by Brad Crawford of 247Sports Monday morning. That’s one of numerous first-round projections now for the Tennessee football star. Part of what stands out about Smith is his versatility and his size at 6’6″ 335 pounds. He was the best blocker as the Vols’ left tackle in 2018, and he earned First-Team All-SEC honors starting at guard in a spread offense in 2017 and then in a pro-style offense in 2019. If not for blood clots in his lungs shortening that 2018 season, he would’ve been All-SEC that year as well. Simply put, Smith has proven he can play any position in any system at a high level while producing at a high level in the process, and he has the size to do it. The only drawback are those blood clots, a major health concern. After all, they cut short his 2018 season and kept him out of full offseason activities in 2018 and 2019. I am glad he is coming back but I think he took a risk with the clot issue. I hope that doesn't come back up for him. I am assuming he has some type of insurance on himself like LoL policy if he would eligible. Smith is a great talent and truly hope to see him have a terrific year IF we even have a season that is.
  11. GH6 I hate to agree but you may be right. I am thinking this will be terrible but if players keep getting infected then yeah, I could see this not happening this season. I sure hope not. Not just for the kids and and the school but money wise and frankly we need something to get behind instead all this other stuff going on. We really need sports back right now.
  12. According to Tennessee head football coach Jeremy Pruitt, rising senior running back Tim Jordan is no longer part of the Vols’ football program. Pruitt met with the media on Thursday via a virtual press conference, and he was asked about the status of the veteran running back following an arrest in Florida at the end of May. Pruitt said that Jordan is “no longer on the team” as of now. Jordan, a native of Bartow, FL, was pulled over in his home county in late May after two Lakeland police detectives on patrol claimed they saw a vehicle speeding and repeatedly swerving into the bicycle lane per the arrest warrant. The officers stopped the vehicle and reportedly smelled “a strong odor of cannabis emanating from inside.”
