  2. he Waxhaw, N.C. joins the Tennessee football Volunteers as a preferred walk-on. With an already intriguing competition looming for the spring, Tennessee football is adding another player to its stable of quarterbacks. In this case, they’re bringing in a wildcard th Carolina from Norwho would surprise everybody if he got the job. Sullivan McDermott, a 6’4″ 205-pound pro-style quarterback out of Marvin Ridge High School in Waxhaw, N.C., is now heading to Rocky Top. According to Ryan Callahan of GoVols247, he joins the Vols as a preferred walk-on in their 2021 recruiting class. McDermott does not have a rating on 247Sports or Rivals. He received the preferred walk-on offer from Tennessee football inside linebackers coach Brian Niedermeyer and revealed his decision to join the Vols Friday on Twitter. Given the transfers of Jarrett Guarantano and J.T. Shrout, UT’s quarterback competition in the spring was set to come down to Harrison Bailey, once a five-star phenom, and Kaidon Salter with Brian Maurer potentially throwing a wrench into the process. Bailey is touted for his drop-back passing skills, and Salter is a four-star in the Vols’ 2021 class due to his dual-threat abilities. Virginia Tech Hokies graduate transfer Hendon Hooker also joined the program to bring more experience, and he is another mobile quarterback. We should note that Maurer also is a guy with dual-threat abilities. Because of those guys, the addition of McDermott balances out the skills of the quarterbacks on the roster for Jeremy Pruitt, Jim Chaney, Chris Weinke and Tee Martin to have open competition. Of course, that’s assuming they all are around by the time the spring and then next season arrive. According to MaxPreps, McDermott completed 67.3 percent of his passes for 2,367 yards, 25 touchdowns and 12 interceptions through 12 games this past year. He also plays basketball. Here is a look at his football highlight reel.

  3. The Tennessee football Volunteers have lost one of their top offensive lineman. And just like that, one of the key recruits to be sold as a building block for Tennessee football under head coach Jeremy Pruitt is gone. When Wanya Morris entered the transfer portal earlier this week, there was always the possibility that he would return to Rocky Top. After all, the same day he entered the portal, Shawn Shamburger had withdrawn from the portal. There was hope that Pruitt would be able to convince Morris, one of his top young players, to do the same thing. It didn’t happen. Morris revealed a new top three Friday night, and none of them involved Tennessee football. The schools were the Oklahoma Sooners, Texas A&M Aggies and USC Trojans. He listed them on Twitter. While this is a loss and I don't mean this as being in retaliation to his decision, I wish him the best but am I the only one that thought Tennessee QBs were still running for their lives this past season and actually he was slightly overrated? Regardless I wish him well.
  4. Really isn't much to talk about other than Basketball. Until something break with Pruitt we are at a standstill except for loons posting crap that isn't of any value and we don't do that here.

  7. One of the greatest leaders in Tennessee football history is now one of the most well-deserved members among college football’s elite. His recognition should have come much sooner than it did, but late is better than never. Al Wilson was announced as part of the National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame Class of 2021. There were 13 members in this year’s class, including 11 players and two head coaches. With Wilson’s induction, Tennessee football now has 25 members overall in the Hall of Fame, 21 of whom went in as players and four of whom went in as coaches. The most recent member was Peyton Manning in the 2017 class. A four-year linebacker with the Vols from 1995 to 1998, Wilson was part of what was by far the most successful four-year run in the modern era of UT history. He helped the Vols to a 45-5 record, four straight 10-plus win seasons, four straight top 10 finishes, back to back SEC Championships and a national championship in 1998.
  8. And then there was another one Tennessee football defensive back Shawn Shamburger entered the NCAA transfer portal on Tuesday. The senior was a key member of Tennessee's 2019 defense, but played in only three games in 2020 and sat out the final five. Vols coach Jeremy Pruitt said on Nov. 16 that Shamburger was "working on academics." "This has been a very unusual really circumstance with this whole deal (with COVID-19)," Pruitt said. "You try to do school from home and not being in-person, when you talk about tutors and things like that. One of the things that he is focusing on is, he is going to focus on academics the rest of the semester.” Shamburger finished his Tennessee career with 86 career tackles and 5½ tackles for loss in 38 games, including 16 starts. He made his only career interception in Tennessee's Gator Bowl win against Indiana on Jan. 2, 2020.

  12. Whether you hate Bama or you don't, they won another national title. Game wasn't as close as the final score was. Still, this game still feels it needs an asterisk on it. The game wasn't even close.

  16. Fyi, I will be terminating the login API for Facebook and Google logins effective within 30 days. If you have your account here based on those logins, I've would send me an email and I'll delete your account and let you back in with a standard user ID and password. I also will be removing the voltalk Facebook page. I can no longer work with or support these organizations. Voltalk has a group on Mewe and I hope people will join there. It's just a feed off our topics here but it works. Sorry for any inconveniences but I just cannot look myself in the mirror and use these services knowing what's taking place now just for the ease of the service. If you have any questions, please PM me.
  17. You got opinions. How about an answer?

    Parler is down thanks to Amazon. These SOBS think we cannot make it without them. I got news for you. I don't needs these global ass clowns. I'm about to close my Amazon account as well also moving my hosting service to someone with non political bias and terms of service state that. Maybe it's time we all go back to small businesses for everything. They have cornered most of the market and this is WHY you don't allow monopolization of free markets. Screw em all.

May wont remember but he coached Offensive Line at Tennessee. Did a pretty good job. Took Jacksonville to the AFC title game and yes they sucked after that one run but the front office us terrible, I wouldn't place that on him. He has NFL experience and some Tennessee ties.
