Yes, it's Rocky Top. Now I will eternally have that song in my head. That is completely unfortunate. I found a link with the lyrics for you though. What a redneck song.
Where can i buy or find a #14 authentic Tennessee volunteers jersey?
Eric Berry's hard to come by. Everywhere in Knoxville has been out pretty much all season. They sell out as soon as they get them in. Since our bowl game will likely be EB's last game as a Vol, why don't you just get his NFL jersey :) then if you still want to get his other one after the season you can. :) I was able to get a white #14 jersey, but I took it back because I wanted orange.
Who thinks that the Tennessee Volunteers Men's basketball team has a chance at a championship next season?
Oh definetely, they have a chance. Matter of fact im a huge Kentucky fan and i pick Tennessee to win the SEC East this year. They are bringing back Chris Lofton, Wayne Chism, Ramar Smith and Duke Crews. This team is going to be explosive. Bruce Pearl is an amazing coach and he is hungry for something other than a sweet sixteen, Tennessee will be the surprise out of the SEC this year, and they will be fighting with my Wildcats for the East title. Its going to be a very exciting year.
Will the Tennessee Volunteers team disband after being utterly demolished by the Cal bears this weekend?
It would be entertaining, but SEC fans are a little too delusional to go that far.
And i like how they point out the broken finger. Seems the fragile Boy Wonder has some kind of injury to explain awy his lack of production every year. ( this is the Guy that got creamed by Notre Dame two years in a row, for Petes sake).
*Aside from Boise St, and spuds, what the heck has Idaho ever had to brag about? (Militias, Skinheads and KKK rallys?)
Who did UT (university of Tennessee, volunteers) lose to in the elite 8 in 2009?
UNLV won in 1990. Tennessee lost to Oklahoma State in the First Round of the 2009 NCAA Tournament. In 2008 the Volunteers lost to Louisville 79-60 in the Elite 8. 2008 was Tennessee's most recent Elite 8 appearance.
Does anyone have a clue how I can make a Tennessee Volunteers birthday cake.?
depending on how big the cake will be (how many people are you trying to feed) just make the cake and decorate the top with the logo (i think it's just a big T, right) make the background one of the school colors and the T the other color
Who likes the University of Tennessee Volunteers, still?
Fans of UT are fans of UT.
Any fan who no longer likes a team because they lose a game wasn't really fan to begin with.
The only real impact on the fan base would be on very young impressionable minds with no real other allegiance that may have formed a fanship of the team by watching them in the BCS bowl they would have been in had they won.
If you don't have a hometown team to root for as a kid you tend to create fanship with whoever is popular and visible in big games (which is why there are so many Cowboy and Yankee fans all over the U.S.).
Is this the year that the Tennessee Volunteers will finally beat the Florida Gators?
They certainly have a better chance this year. I'm not certain Muschamp is the best choice for the Gators but then again he may wind up winning three national championships. Even so, I think Muschamp is a better coach than Dooley and Florida is an inherently easier place to recruit to than Tennessee so whereas this year the Vols may have a better chance of winning I wouldn't call them a favorite.
Does anyone know how much the Tennessee Volunteers vs Ohio football game is going to be on pay per view?
On my TV, they have all the weeks programming. So you could use your preview guide on the TV and scroll ahead to saturday, and click over the game. It will tell you the cost.
At least that is how it works on my cable.
Better than last year but still rebuilding.. 2011 sounds about right.
Crompton is much improved but he was god awful, now he is merely bad
Kiffin and the SEC and NCAA have many issues, I'm not sure Kiffin can run a clean program
Didn't some Tenn. players get arrested for armed robbery? That is an indication that the program is while on its way to PROBATION!
Who has a stronger schedule in college football Tennessee Volunteers or Ohio state.?
I mean the Big Ten's a joke as a conference. And have a lot of prove adding one decent opponent to their schedule doesn't really mean anything to me. They still are playing an extremely weak schedule teams like Youngstown State, Troy, Northwestern, Ohio. Are you kidding me and their supposed to be National Championship contenders? With all the the talk and hype around them they should at least have a schedule to match.
The SEC is definitely the stronger conference, granted I think the conference is overrated but still way stronger the Big Ten. And Tenneesee still plays Florida, Auburn, Georgia, South Carolina, Kentucky and UCLA. Their weakest opponents are NIU and Wyoming which aren't even close to as terrible as Youngstown State or Troy.
OSU Schedule - 6
what do the Tennessee Volunteers have to do to right the ship?
There's nothing wrong with the ship! It's one game and they will have a fine season. When teams travel to a stadium and play other teams that are considered the underdog sometimes they are over confident and get beaten. It happens. As bad as the UCLA qb played in the first halp he played much better in the last half. Tennessee didn't do anything wrong other than losing a game.
How did the Tennessee Volunteers get to be so god awful at football?
For years, Phillip Fulmer was a great recruiter, but his on-field coaching skills were questionable, at best. That finally caught up with him when he could no longer pull in the great recruits he once did. Now Derek Dooley is having to basically rebuild from the ground up. I don't know if he can do it or not, but he's not exactly off to a good start not being able to count the number of players he sends out on the field TWICE in a row. Tennessee actually got away with having only 10 men on the field against UAB on the last play, which is not a penalty but an obvious disadvantage, though they managed to win that one. I guess everyone knows what happened last Saturday.
Incidentally, an almost mirror situation is happening right now at Georgia. It's kind of ironic they're both playing this week as I'm typing this.
Everybody goes through bad times. I can remember a time every single SEC team has been bad, except for Florida. They should be due up fairly soon.
Does anyone know where the Tennessee Volunteers got their name?
The Volunteers (or Vols as it is commonly shortened to) derive that nickname from the State of Tennessee's nickname. Tennessee is known as the "Volunteer State", a nickname it earned during the War of 1812, in which volunteer soldiers from Tennessee played a prominent role, especially during the Battle of New Orleans.
The costumed Smokey Mascot.
The costumed Smokey Mascot.
Smokey is the mascot of the University of Tennessee sports teams, both men's and women's. There is a live blue tick hound mascot, Smokey IX, which leads the Vols on the field for football games. There is also a costumed mascot that appears at every Vols game, and has won several mascot championships.
Have the Virginia Tech Hokies ever played the Tennessee Volunteers in football?
They played in the 1994 Gator Bowl. Tennessee won 45-23.
Other than that, their only games were in the 1800s and early 1900s.
Being that the Vols are in the SEC and the Hokies are in the ACC and there is not a rivarly between the schools, there's no reason to schedule them for a regular season game.
How will the Tennessee Volunteers fare when they host the South Carolina Gamecocks on October 31, 2009?
It's really hard to say because we pretty much don't know anything about this new Vols team. After the first few games we'll be able to predict it much more accurately, although I'm not really sure how UT will win any games putting Crompton back into QB.
Things are getting anxious here in Knoxville. Sadly enough, I would predict SC to win.
I think they've done a pretty good job recruiting since Lane Kiffin came in, picking up some great talent, including Bryce Brown. Despite how bad Kiffin was with the Raiders, I think he'll make a great college coach someday. Even though Chavez was a good def coord, Monty will do just as well, especially with his son alongside. I look for them to make a bowl just outside of the BCS bowls with around 9 wins. However,, they're gonna have to have someone step up and lead the offense and solve the QB situation.
