Tennessee Volunteer football players hit the practice field, RTT makes plans for its season, too

New, comments

Football practice starts today, y'all. We should finally start to see a steady stream of news flowing out from campus. How to keep on top of it all? Presenting RTT

This thing is magic. It's essentially an auto-updated list of articles of interest to fans of the Volunteers (mostly) and fans of the college sports blogosphere (some). Keep an eye on it because it should change over the course of each day. You won't need to keep returning to this post, though, because the running list is over on the sidebar as well. I stuck it here just to bring attention to it.

So because practice is starting, we're running out of time to finish up our summer projects. I'm tinkering with some stuff under the hood and I'd still like to try to squeeze in a final recap of last season, a preview of this year's Tennessee team, and as many previews of Tennessee's opponents this year as I can. Here's the tentative schedule:

Begin game-week postings

Realize that by posting this I am committing one of the cardinal sins of the blogosphere -- posting what one intends to post in the future, which generally has the effect of sabotaging the whole plan. That looks like more work than I can actually get done, too, so remember it's all subject to the whims of day jobs, kidney stones, vertigo, and a host of other calamities conspiring against the production of content for a free site.

Why recap last season now and before the previews? Because any particular season is best understood within the context of the prior season, and I want to get it down for posterity. And anyway, previews mean much more the week before the game than the summer before the season. If we fall behind, it will be the least important previews that get sacrificed.

So there you go. Have a great day, and thanks for reading. Oh, and keep your eye on the Magic RTT thingamajig.
