  1. Take a look at the latest Vols hype video to get ya pumped up for the upcoming season.
  2. Tennessee added some big time juice to their backfield for the 2019 season, landing four-star running back Eric Gray during the early signing period last winter. The former Michigan commit ended up staying in-state after running for over 8,000 yards in high school. With Ty Chandler, Tim Jordan and Jeremy Banks on the roster, Gray was far from a lock to make an instant impact in Knoxville as a freshman. A shoulder injury ended up keeping him out of spring practice, making his battle for playing time even more of an uphill climb. However, in just a handful of practices, Gray is already turning heads. “Eric’s very mature,” Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt told the media last weekend. “When you watch him practice and go about his business, he gets it the first time. He learns from other people’s mistakes.” Gray was a top 100 player in the 2019 class and He scored over 130 touchdowns during his high school career, averaging 9.5 yards per carry during that span. “He’s got really good ball skills, he’s got good vision,” Pruitt continued. “He’s a good competitor. He jumps out there — he’s very mature when it comes to football ability. We’re excited about him and think he’s had a really good camp so far. Again, this is a guy who’s been really good in practice, been really good in the drills, let’s see how he does when we get over here to the stadium.” Buzz building around Tennessee freshman running back Eric Gray WWW.ROCKYTOPTALK.COM Seems like he’s going to play early on.

    He missed the open practice because of the weather. Apparently he just wanted to see someone get ran over

    Vols land huge offensive lineman for 2020

    I love these guys Pruitt is picking up. I was getting tired of the "light" agile linemen. 275lb offensive linemen don't cut it in the SEC. This isn't conference USA football. I remember the good ol' days when Fulmer had an average line of 6' 4" and 315 to 325 lbs. Looks like we are getting back to that.

    The NCAA is ridiculous

    I am sure most have heard about the STUPID MORONIC ruling on a self reported violation by Jeremy Pruitt on a tweet congratulating a high school which was his ALMA MATER!!! The NCAA is getting out of control. Look I get making sure coaches aren't trying to push incentives to come to their school through tweets and other social media, but there is the letter of the law and the intent of the law. In this case like many others the NCAA goes overboard. This article was a good write up on it and also even Paul Finebaum said yesterday it was ludicrous. And it is. COME ON NCAA The NCAA is ridiculous, Vol. infinity: Tennessee violations included a Jeremy Pruitt tweet WWW.SPORTINGNEWS.COM The Vols' head football coach shouted out his high school alma mater for winning a championship. Can't do that.

    That is so true!
  9. Apparently CJ wanted to follow other career interests. At this point, not sure who the new one will be. Report: CJ Fayton steps down as VFL Coordinator 247SPORTS.COM Tennessee athletics is in the market for a new coordinator for the Vol For Life program. Jayson Swain reported Monday morning that former Tennessee receiver CJ Fayton has

    Wow that is terrible news. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. I hope this works out for him. Kidney failure is so deadly and very serious.

  13. While some Tennessee fans are simply hoping for their Vols to make a return to the postseason for the first time since the 2016 season, ESPN’s updated Football Power Index is jumping on the UT bandwagon early and predicting big things for the program heading into the 2019 season. Tennessee may have come up just short of reaching a bowl game last season but if ESPN’s FPI is accurate, the Volunteers will have clinched a postseason spot by the first week of November this fall. In the updated ESPN FPI projections, Tennessee is favored in nine of the team’s 12 upcoming games in 2019. The only three games the Vols aren’t currently favored in, according to ESPN’s FPI, are road games at Florida on Sept. 21 and at Alabama on Oct. 19, and the Oct. 5 home game against Georgia. Year 2 breakout? ESPN’s Football Power Index favors Tennessee in 9 games WWW.SATURDAYDOWNSOUTH.COM If ESPN's FPI is to be believed, Tennessee is in for a great season.
  14. I think the Admiral and Williams both will do IF they are in the right system and given an opportunity.
  15. I was really hoping he would reconsider but I get it. He don't want to critic his broth and friends. I have to respect that. ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” made a real run at Peyton Manning to be the centerpiece of its 2019 coverage, but Manning turned the lucrative opportunity down. Now, we know why. NFL insider and Yahoo! Sports’ Charles Robinson, citing sources, says Manning didn’t feel comfortable analyzing his younger brother, Eli, as well as some former teammates and friends. The “Monday Night Football” schedule includes a pair of New York Giants games in which Peyton would have to analyze (and potentially criticize) Eli and others. NFL insider reveals reason why Peyton Manning turned down lucrative ‘Monday Night Football’ opportunity WWW.SATURDAYDOWNSOUTH.COM Perhaps he'll do it in the future.

    Phillip Fulmer

    Nice to see the AD addressing fans and breaking tings down. It is almost like a status state of the Vol union. I like it.
  18. If this defense plays as well as they did against KY then they can win and then beat vandy and win out. The biggest issue is Missouri is a totally different animal with Drew Lock. The Vols were able to just focus on Snell because he was truly their only true threat. Drew Lock can create a matchup issue. Lets hope Thompson and Taylor are ready to go and primed to shut down folks in the secondary. If Taylor can get pressure again on Lock they have a chance. Get past Missouri then this could keep things moving and trending up faster than thought.
  19. Pruitt is quietly improving. I like the slow steady improvement over the quick turnaround. Slow deliberate building sets a foundation for a process and culture that can set the team to becoming competitive on a consistent basis instead of a quick fix. He is pushing the credit towards the players and players are starting to get Pruitt is just a football coach and not some political PC media darling. He will get this turned around it just seems it may take a little longer than expected which speaks volumes to how bad coach Butch Jones really was and was way over his head. He left this team as weak, non aggressive and in disarray. Keep pushing it Pruitt.
