Consensus 4* Chooses Vols

ALL THE BRICKS 4th down calculator is officially live

Shameless plug: Put this together based on CFBstat's '05-'12 historic 4th down data (just in time for the last game of the season!). Input yards to go, spot, and (optionally) quarter/score, get attempts %, success rate, and overall win/loss rate. STATS YAALLLL. Any questions/comments/complaints/etc appreciated.

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

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?

Great excerpt from Pat Summitt's upcoming autobiography (via

The chunk reprinted here deals with her feud with Geno. And in what should come as a surprise to absolutely no one ever, besides being one of the greatest coaches to ever teach the game, Pat can tell a pretty great story, too.

How good was this offense? CROSSPOST STATSBOMB, YALL

So, I put this together for a late comment buried in the nether regions of the best-not-revisited Vandy sum-up post, but I figured some other folks might be curious. BEHOLD: Team Defense vs. AP... releases all data to the masses

Hurrah for cfbstats. Didn't think I could love those guys any more. Get to work, lads.

Starting Florida LBs Jelani Jenkins & Ronald Powell out for Tennessee Game

Jenkins out with a broken thumb, and Powell likely out for the year after some setbacks in his ACL recovery from last year.

Just in time for the Orange and White. Can't remember who here came up with this, but mad propz. If anybody wants to get ambitious at kinkos tomorrow morning, you can download a big version here. If you're lazy, I threw up a t-shirt version you can buy here. If anybody has any requests for color variations or other sweet logo-ish ideas, holla. Enjoy!

Manning to Broncos, Apparently

Ah, well. Titans would have been fun. Upsides? BEATING FLORIDA.

Rob Lowe reporting Peyton to retire

Yes, that Rob Lowe.

Hiestand near finalizing move to the Irish

" is reporting that offensive line coach Harry Heistand is close to finalizing a deal at Notre Dame." Not that I'd think too many are torn up about this.

Four-star DT Danny O'Brien picks Vols

Tennessee has picked up a commitment from Danny O'Brien, a defensive tackle from Flint, Michigan who chose the Vols over the Wolverines. (Volnation)

The Craig James Annual Award for Sports Analysis Excellence - Bye Week

This week, the CJAASAE is making like TCU's defense, South Carolina's brief foray into BCS football, and Utah State's meager hope that life was more than a brief but incessant parade of...

Vols Calvin Ball: Jim Chaney and the Tennessee Offense

For they are not all created with a similar destiny; but Roses and Tostitos are foreordained for some, and eternal Meineke Care Car Bowls for others. WE GETTIN REAL, YALL.

UT to escape further NCAA sanctions

From GVX: "Other than what it has already self-imposed, the University of Tennessee athletic department will not be hit with any further sanctions from the NCAA, multiple sources told the News Sentinel. The multiple sources requested anonymity because the NCAA is set to announce the findings from June's Committee on Infractions hearing Wednesday. Former men's basketball coach Bruce Pearl will receive a three-year show cause penalty while his three former assistants - Tony Jones, Jason Shay and Steve Forbes - all will receive a one-year show cause penalty." UPDATE: Apparently the NCAA is feeling charitable this week. Kiffin also somehow dodged the bullet.

Pre-Snap Read's Countdown- No. 49: Tennessee

" In short, U.T. is going to add one win to last year’s regular season total. Is that enough to satisfy the fan base? I hope so, as 8-4 seems like a bit of a long shot with this schedule. For the Vols to make that sort of jump, Bray will need to really live up to his potential, the pass rush must improve, the holes at linebacker be filled and the kicking game remain efficient as Michael Palardy takes over full-time for Daniel Lincoln. Listen: Tennessee could have those things happen and win eight games; I just don’t think that’s going to happen. There are seven seniors on this roster, folks. Roughly 70 percent of the roster are freshmen and sophomores. This is not a team built for success in 2011, but one built for success in 2012 and 2013. " voters pick Vols as 2011's SEC Surprise Team

Which is encouraging. Unless you read the comments, which on ESPN's SEC blog are never encouraging, at least on an existential level.

"we're prior good behavior." Stay classy, gatorz.

UNC's RB White uncertain, WR Pianalto unlikely for Bowl

White, a senior, led the team in rushing (720 yards) before his injury at Florida State on Nov. 6. Butch Davis said he would be "on the cusp" of potentially playing against the Volunteers. "As we return to practice over the weekend, we’ll get a little bit of an idea." Pianalto, a senior, led the team in receiving (30 catches, 311 yards) before his injury at Virginia on Oct. 16. Davis said he has "less than a five percent chance" of playing the 30th.

4 UT Players on SEC All-Freshman squad

Ja’Wuan James, Justin Hunter, Jacques Smith and John Propst all made the cut, which is voted by the SEC coaches. Florida had the most players on the squad, with 5; Tennessee, with 4, tied for second with Alabama and Arkansas.

Thankful for the Vols! And also pictures of the Kentucky logo on a bird carcass.
