  • The CFBA Cabal is very close to completing the posts announcing the winners of the 2006 College Football Blogger Awards. The tentative plan is to announce them over two days later this week. Stay tuned.
  • Sunday Morning Quarterback discovers Ron Zook's secret recruiting methods. Ohhhhh, so that's how he does it.
  • Tough game yesterday for the basketball Vols against Kentucky. After leading by one at the half, the Vols watched Kentucky go on a 20-2 run, hitting five of its 11 three-pointers, in the second half. Stat of the game: Chris Lofton -- DNP, closely followed by this one: 8-27 on three point attempts. And once Kentucky realized that JaJuan Smith was the only one who could hit from behind the arc, they keyed on him.

    The Vols have now lost five of their last six games, all of them on the road, but they return home for five of its next seven. Lofton will test his ankle today in practice.

    Oh, and one more thing about basketball. John Pennington ($) is right:

    When center Major Wingate decided to put on some Bob Marley albums, grab a bag of Cheetos and go all Matthew McConaughey and then fail/skip a drug test, UT coach Bruce Pearl's second team took a big hit (no pun intended).

    The Wildcats out-rebounded the Vols 42-27.

    Okay, one more thing, I promise. Had you heard that Vanderbilt men's basketball coach Kevin Stallings referred to coach Hulk as "that idiot a------" prior to the Lady Vols v. Duke game last week? Discuss.

  • The football Vols fill a Demetrice Morley-sized and -shaped hole with the addition of junior college safety Nevin McKenzie to this year's list of commitments.
  • Over and out.
