Today's Talking Points:
- Vols in the Fall examines Derek Dooley's 17-20 record at La. Tech. Very enlightening stuff, especially the wicked travel distances for road trips. With maps!
- John Pennington at Mr. SEC says that all of the rumors about the co-eds and Kiffin's car wreck and renaming the sewage treatment center "only keeps the name 'Kiffin' connected to the name 'Tennessee,' something smart Vol fans should be trying to avoid." I tend to agree with him. Oh, wait. Blogs are terrible, so that must be the wrong answer.
- Scout notes another reason that Jevan Snead's decision to enter the NFL draft early is a mistake: the SEC is losing a bunch of great defensive backs ($?) early as well. Of course, much of the exodus is from Tennessee and Florida, who are each losing two, and I don't think Ole Miss plays Florida next year, but the point still stands.
