Winter Eve: Vols' Orange and White game kicks off tomorrow

So the spring game's tomorrow, marking the end of spring practice and the beginning of the cold, hard winter of college football. The event kicks off with an 11:30 a.m. Vol Walk, and the gates open at 11:45 a.m. for Fans Day, which begins at 12:00.

It's looking like the weather will be fine, but in the event of rain, you can still get autographs and pictures of the players in the guts of Neyland Stadium around Gate 21A. Admission is free, and the first 7,500 fans get a free fan pack.

The White team will consist of the No. 1 offense and the No. 2 defense, and the Orange team will consist of the No. 2 offense and the No. 1 defense. You may have heard that fans have voted for the game's starting lineups and the first offensive play. Woo. Starting lineups:


  • Jonathan Crompton

  • Josh McNeil

  • Ramon Foster

  • Jacques McClendon

  • Eric Young

  • Ramon Johnson

  • Chris Brown

  • LaMarcus Coker

  • David Holbert

  • Lucas Taylor

  • Josh Briscoe


  • J.T. Mapu

  • Demonte' Bolden

  • Xavier Mitchell

  • Robert Ayers

  • Jerod Mayo

  • Ryan Karl

  • Rico McCoy

  • Jonathan Hefney

  • Roshaun Fellows

  • Antonio Wardlow

  • Antonio Gaines

They're keeping the pig in the poke regarding the first play.

I'll probably be sitting low on the ten-yard line on the west side of the stadium, so stop on by and introduce yourself if you run into me. I'll be wearing a baseball cap that says Grumpy and an orange growling Smokey t-shirt.

ALSO: If you're going to be there with your camera and would be willing to let me post some of your pictures on the blog, please email them to me at
