"After months of nonstop sprinting, the Volunteers' second-year staff saunters, improbably, to a top-five finish on National Signing Day"

This is a terrific little map, although I think it's confusing China with Germany, which, you know, make your own joke. The troll button is a nice touch.

Pat Forde's over and underachiever index

+

His formula essentially ranks a team's based on the number of NFL combine participants from that school. He then subtracts the team's final Sagarin rating from the combine number. Some teams were obvious overachievers in 2012... Stanford ranked 22nd in talent and 9th in Sagarin for a rating of +13. The biggest overachiever was Northwestern at +69 due to a talent rating of 90 vs. a Sagarin rating of 21. Other prominent overachievers include Ole Miss(+66), Texas Tech(+53), Louisville(+47), Michigan(+44) and Vanderbilt(+39). Care to guess who the biggest underachievers were? The worst was Hawaii at -86 with a talent ranking of 33 and a Sagarin rating of 118. Other notable underachievers are Illinois(-83), Boston College(-65), Southern Mississippi(-77), UConn(-63), Cal(-60) and Arkansas(-55). As for Tennessee, and Mister Orange Dockers, we came in at a score that looks better by comparison to the above but is still in fact horrendous at -40.

Vols Donning The Smokey Greys For Vandy

3

Butch Jones says Vols will bring back ‘Smokey gray’ uniforms for Vandy game. For some reason i think this counts for a few extra points. It looks like they are going to make the Smokey Grey a more standard color.

USA Today reports Butch Jones earning $4.86m yearly, good for 4th nationally

5

This directly contradicts earlier reports after his hiring that put Jones' salary in the $3m range. If true, it would also make Jones the 3rd-highest paid SEC coach, behind Saban and Bret Bielema(!?!?). This report could obviously be inaccurate, but considering Tennessee's history of displaying all the fiscal prudence of a joint Tyler Bray/Stephen Garcia Tijuana birthday kegger, it also wouldn't be shocking- and in that case, this reeeeaaaallly better work out with Butch, Yall's thoughts?

Pure awesomeness..

UT Vols Seating Diagram for Battle at Bristol

+

(If this has been published and/or discussed elsewhere, sorry for the duplication----I have not yet seen it on the web.) The link shows a PDF version of an order form I received from UT. I believe it's the first representation of the seating chart for the Battle at Bristol, showing placement of UT's ticket allotment. Looks like the Vols and Hokies have the "sideline" (sort of) seats with the end zones seats on sale to the public; about one-third each. http://freepdfhosting.com/cfb681e95c.pdf
