Better Know an Opponent: Western Kentucky


When we last saw Western Kentucky, they were beating Kentucky. So what? Everybody beats Kentucky.

Tennessee Post/Advance Scouting, Week 1


Games happened yesterday. In lieu of just focusing on Tennessee, let's look around Tennessee's schedule a bit as well.

RTT's Locks & Keys Week 1: You Know Nothing


Week 1 is always such a mess of a picks season, but at least there's a nice non-Tennessee slate out there for consumption.

First-Week Schemes Are the Pits


Yay football! We're so excited for football that we don't even care that we're not really going to learn anything about Butch Jones and Tennessee on Saturday.

100 Days of Vols #13: Tyler Bray, Ceremonial Bro


At no point in his career at Tennessee did Tyler Bray resemble a clean-cut QB of yore. He wouldn't have been Tyler Bray if he did.

#14 In Your Programs, #1 In Your Hearts


The Rocky Top Talk 100 Days of Vols had yet to talk about Eric Berry. We regret the error. To make amends, our opponents have been sacked. And intercepted. A lot.

Offseason Lady Vols News Roundup Extravaganza


Rather than have you, dear reader, parsing through everything for Lady Vols news, we bring the HARD HITTING NEWZ* to you. *there is no hard hitting news. News is not a concrete object with mass. But there is stuff that's happened.

Tennessee, EA, and You: A Qualitative Comparison


There's a whole wide world out there beyond the SEC, and some of them have better offenses than Tennessee in NCAA14. Like Iowa.

100 Days of Vols #48: Win Your Division, Son


Back in the hearty days of 2007, men were men, boys were boys, and if you didn't win your division at least you weren't making the title game. Poor, poor Georgia. If they only hadn't gotten their head pounded in by the Vols on national TV.



Hey, only seven more years of this deal! You know, metaphorically speaking.

The Lady Vols Postscript


The season's over. Now what?

An Opening: Tennessee vs. Louisville


Holly Warlick and the Lady Vols have a chance to do something that Pat Summitt hasn't done in, oh, at least five years. With a team that wasn't even expected to win the SEC. Against the team that beat Baylor. This is all a dream.

Oklahoma City Bound - Lady Vols 68, Creighton 52


It wasn't pretty, but at this point it doesn't matter. The Lady Vols advance to their 31st Sweet 16 with a 16-point win over a tough Creighton team.

Perimeter Coverage Alert: Lady Vols vs. Creighton


With a win tonight against Creighton, the Lady Vols will advance to Oklahoma City. Underestimate the Bluejays at your peril, as they've already unseated the 7-seed Syracuse Orange. Tip's at 7:05.



Yeah, the Lady Vols pulled down a 2 seed. Bet you can't guess who the 1 seed in their region is.

Titles and Trophies: Lady Vols Sweep POY, COY


Holly Warlick, Meighan Simmons, and Bashaara Graves take home hardware from the SEC media. We celebrate.

The Victory Lap: Tennessee Lady Vols at Kentucky


With the SEC regular season crown and a #1 tournament seed sewn up, the Lady Vols look to lock down a #2 NCAA tournament seed in Lexington at 3:30.

Champion (split): Tennessee LV 60, Arkansas 54


Whatever. It's a win. A road win, no less. (And with Kentucky and Texas A&M not being able to say that today, it's a split regular season crown at worst.)

Call the Hogs: Tennessee at Arkansas


The Lady Vols take on the Lady Razorbacks in Fayetteville at 2, prompting a lively discussion on what the heck a Lady Razorback actually is. I wish there was a lipstick on a pig joke I could make here, but they're not half bad.

Lady Vols Vs. Ole Miss: Game Thread


Once again, it's more men's basketball stomping on women's basketball concurrent Tennessee basketball action. This is the thread for the women's game against Ole Miss at 2 PM.



No, really, if you want to listen / watch Pendley, Hooper, and _trey_ talk about recruiting and fail miersably in the process, go on. At least it's brilliant with class, and that's what counts, right?

A Hypothetical Oral History of NSD Everywhere


Excerpts from A Comprehensive History of Every Single FBS Recruit Ever, Vol. 253 are inside; please attribute any corrections to the Department of Hearsay, Bristol, CT 06010 (yeah, it's strange, but it's really a coincidence).

Holly Warlick in Search of Warm Bodies, Lungs


You guys, having a rotation of five basketball players isn't funny. Knock it off. (Oh, and Tennessee lost, 80-63 to Missouri, who they beat by 45 earlier in the season.)

Fresh Meat Alert for the Lady Vols


The Missouri Tigers take on the Tennessee Lady Vols at 2 PM. Poor Missouri.

Almost: Notre Dame 77, Tennessee Lady Vols 67


The Lady Vols played one heck of a game - better than a lot of us expected - but it wasn't enough, as Isabelle Harrison left the game with a knee injury and Tennessee came up short.

When the Irish Come Sauntering In


Notre Dame's 2-20 against the Lady Vols in their history. The problem? They're 2-0 in their last two. Better change that quickly.

An Interview with Tamika Catchings


In what can only be characterized as a a fortunate development, Rocky Top Talk sat down with Tamika Catchings. Yeah, that Tamika Catchings.

Come for the Carnage, Stay for the Blood


So as it turns out,, we found something Alabama isn't very good at. Who wants some catharsis?

This Is Why 11:30 AM Games Are A Crapshoot


The Lady Vols prevail in Gainesville by 3, 78-75, in a game that - rightfully - felt like an escape.
