1

A historic offseason comes to a close - while we've been counting down The 50 Best Games of the Fulmer Era, our friends at 3SIB have been counting down the best players in Tennessee Football history. Their countdown ends today with some guy named Manning...great work from Ghost, Oskie and the whole UT team over there.

Dear Fans, It's Time! The start of the 2009 football season is finally here, and I can’t tell you how excited I am to play our first game inside Neyland Stadium. The excitement around the program is unbelievable! Our players and coaches have worked extremely hard this summer and in fall camp. As I said back in November, we will not be out-worked, and I still stand by that statement today. Saturday’s season opener against Western Kentucky will be a landmark day for our entire program. I encourage everyone to come out early, enjoy the VolWalk and cheer loudly. Part of what makes Tennessee so special is the fans. Your support, enthusiasm and excitement is contagious. Our coaches and players can feel it so join us for the Vol Walk at 10:35 beginning at the Torchbearer. The weather forecast for sunny is 83 and partly sunny – perfect weather for football. If you don’t have tickets yet, check out www.uttix.com. The Big Orange Nation is a team of one and I would like to ask each of you to help us show the rest of the college football world just how united we are. We are asking fans to create a "SEA OF ORANGE" in the stands of Neyland Stadium. The official 2009 Tennessee football t-shirt is on sale at your favorite Vol shop. Buy your shirt, wear it to the game and let’s create an event that none of us will soon forget. If you are in town on Friday night, join the Pride of the Southland Band, the cheerleaders, and Smokey for the 3rd Annual Big Orange Blast pep rally and concert featuring country music star Sara Evans at World’s Fair Park. Thanks for your support. I will see you at Neyland Stadium on Saturday! Let’s Lock In. It’s Time! Go Vols! Lane Kiffin

Lane Kiffin and Tennessee had a remarkable first class in what is normally a transition year. The Vols lose 3-Star wide receiver James Green, but managed to bring in the No. 1 running back in the nation, Brown, and tied USC with 13 five star and four star players.

The excitement around Tennessee football is always high and, obviously, with your arrival, it is even higher. So if you thought the Vol Walk for the Orange and White game was impressive, just wait. Just wait till the electricity radiates through Neyland Stadium as the Pride of the Southland forms the human "T" for you and your team to run through. Simply stated, it's an experience unmatched. And with it all, as you know, comes a huge responsibility. As you have figured out, Tennessee football is front page news 365 days a year. And if it's a big deal in the middle of May, then just imagine how big it is 12 Saturdays a year in the fall. Fans come by land, sea and air to watch their team. In these economic times, for many it's an even bigger sacrifice to come watch the Vols. But they come because it's their team. It's their program and they have given you the keys to direct it. The responsibility is a big one and if you thought your every move was scrutinized this off-season, wait till Saturday. It won't just be your play-calls that are analyzed. Your emotions during the Vol Walk will be examined. Your attire on the sideline will be a topic of discussion. How you come onto and off of Shields-Watkins Field will be critiqued. People are waiting to see if you really are going to be a "visor guy" on Saturdays. Some might say it's crazy, but those of us who have been around Tennessee football all of our life see it as nothing but normal.

If Eric Berry had been healthy last year, Maze would still be spinning.
