- Have you heard we need a QB? Hooper's got everything you need to know about the Lamaison thing, but according to John Adams, history has not been kind to junior college QBs in the SEC. Notwithstanding history, though, Lamaison would be a welcome addition. And Jesse Scroggins? Still not announcing until July 25.
- Somebody sell tickets. Eric Berry says there's a race set up for some time next year between him and his younger twin brothers. Evan recently ran the 100 meters in 11.25 seconds, and Elliot almost kept up that pace over 200 meters. Eric's not taking them lightly and is in training for the event already. By the way, Eric said that Evan actually committed to the Vols before he did, so perhaps he is slower. ;-)
"I love it. I love it, man," he said, literally gushing. "It's the same scheme I ran in high school. You hit the line running, and the holes open up. I love it ... love it."
The Vols finished spring practice with eight scholarship receivers. When sophomores Ahmad Paige and Tyler Maples decided to transfer, the number dropped to a half-dozen.
Now the six has become three.
Yeah, so having our entire returning receiving corps consist of Quintin Hancock, Brandon Warren, and Todd Campbell means we'll need help from tight ends Jeff Cottam, Luke Stocker, and Ben Bartholomew and incoming freshmen Nu'Keese Richardson, James Green, Marsalis Teague, and Zach Rogers. Lotsa newness in that list of names.
