- Double Huh? RB Tauren Poole held on to a ball that was punched so hard by Eric Berry it sounded like someone punted the ball? How does that happen? And then! Berry jumped an out route but dropped the potential interception? Beware of locusts this afternoon. Or maybe not, because he atoned by pushing the world down over and over again. It was reported that he was doing pushups, but I'm relatively certain that it was the world and not Berry doing the moving.
- CBS fawning over Tim Tebow and the Florida Gators: not just for games anymore!
- Back where he belongs. Rico McCoy's coming home to weakside linebacker because, according to Lane Kiffin, "[t]hat's . . . where the best playmaker goes." McCoy had been practicing at strongside for most of the spring. LaMarcus Thompson will now move to strongside.
- Thinking we weren't thinking. First team pass protection is a bit better this week than it was during last Friday's scrimmage. The problem was mental, says Vladimir Richard. If so, the first team has apparently bequeathed it to the second team, as Nick Stephens didn't really get much protection during his time under center this week. Plus, he fumbled two snaps with Cody Sullins, one of which was returned for a touchdown by Nick Reveiz. Reveiz, by the way, is drawing inspiration from Colossians 3:23.
- The Quiet Destroyer. Vladimir Richard would rather be yelled at than subject to offensive coordinator Jim Chaney's quiet and controlled dress downs.
- This week's evidence of an energetic coaching staff brought to you by receivers coach Frank Wilson, who sprinted to the scene of a WR's fumble and jumped on the pile of bodies.
- Cody Pope: living proof you can weigh 300 pounds without eating meat.
- Get well soon. Wes Brown had surgery on both knees yesterday. He'll be fully recovered by June.
- Plea to mainstream media folk doing "blogs." A "blog" is a "weblog," which is a collection of "posts." The post is not a "blog." Thank you.
- Dave Hooker has a blog -- ;-) -- from yesterday about the greatest chokes in the history of Tennessee sports, including those two nasty football games from 2001.
- Is B.J. Coleman this year's Bo Hardegree? Probably not, but a few years ago, as QB Bo Hardegree kept putting up great numbers against the defensive backups, David Cutcliffe put him in against the first-team. He completed 8 of 17 passes for 46 yards and threw four interceptions.
- Pleasepleasepleaseohplease be nice. Phillip Fulmer will indeed be honored at the Orange and White game for receiving the Neyland Award.
- Tennessee bucked a national trend last season and actually drew more fans to basketball games than the prior year.
