Eric Russell's Special Teams A Punt-Blocking Machine

  • Did you know that at North Texas, Eric Russell's special teams blocked 14 punts, including seven in one season? Or that his first Louisiana Tech team was the best in the nation in four special teams categories and that his special teams scored five times in 2008? And we've got the nation's best kicker and the nation's best punter on the way. Pay attention to the third phase this year, Vol fans, because something good might happen.
  • Did you know that Nick Saban, after taking LSU to the BCS National Championship in 2003, led the Tigers to a 9-3 season? They lost to Auburn, Georgia, and Iowa.
  • John Adams has uncovered the Vols' off-season rallying cry. He also says that Vol fans' patience with Derek Dooley benefits Mike Hamilton, whose fate is probably tied to his latest football hire.
  • Single game football tickets go on sale today at 8:30 a.m. You can get tickets to UT-Martin, Oregon, UAB, Mississippi, and Kentucky. If you're going to get UT-Martin and UAB, you might as well get Florida, too, as those three are available as a mini-pack. 
  • Rain! Finally.
