- B.J. Coleman visited UT-Chattanooga earlier this week but is still weighing his options before deciding where to transfer.
- Arian Foster, Anthony Parker, and Ramon Foster have all made cfn.com's list of the top 30 players not drafted ($).
- The Vols are hoping that the offensive line can mitigate any potential disadvantage at QB this season, like the line did in 2004 with three different QBs when they made both Gerald Riggs and Cedric Houston 1,000-yard rushers.
- Why in the world would Ed Orgeron choose to play himself in the upcoming movie version of Michael Lewis's Blind Side? Why, recruiting, of course:
The reason I did it, really, is it's an opportunity for recruiting. It's going to help us in recruiting to see one of our coaches in a movie that goes all over the nation. It's going to help. That's the big reason I did it.
HT: Holly. Side note: I initially mis-typed "Blind Side" as "Bling Side," which is a different movie. Hmm. Who would that be about?
- It's looking more and more like Tyler Smith will return to the Vols for another season. Most are projecting him as a second-round pick, and Smith said that there's a "very high chance" of him returning if that remains the case.
- The Vols had one of those postseason annual banquets where everybody gets an award. No video yet of Bruce Pearl rapping, though, so it sounds much more tame than the Volscars.
- Team Speed Kills' Year 2 has an excellent brief history of America's postseason.
