Thursday Live at Smoothie King
Posted: Thursday, July 20th, 2017, 8:28 AM
We had a special kick-off on the show yesterday for our event for children of incarcerated parents. Rachel Hill was inspiring in sharing how last year's event inspired several listeners to get involved as mentors! I love hearing this. Talk about something that pumps me up!!! This year the goal is to accrue a couple hundred tickets plus all the fixins for a tailgate. This is a good 8 weeks out so we have time but it's never too early to start thinking about this.

Date: 9/23 Opponent: U Mass Cause: Amachi Knoxville Tailgate II Goal: Get as many youngsters to first UT Game as possible. Need: Your tickets to the game, plus $$ if you feel led. Where: Circle Park Tailgate Tennessee Bring: Your family & friends and love on these special people. Also: Our friends Big Brothers Big Sisters will be invited to tailgate...[more]

We had a fun time on the air on Tuesday ranking Tennessee's opponents in degree of difficulty from 1 to 12. We had some great banter around this fun topic. We allowed the listeners of your Tony Basilio to show choose these opponents in a draft fashion. Here's what you came up with.

Tennessee's Schedule Broken Down By Most To Least Difficult:

#1. @ Alabama: This game should be as much fun Bama's recent ascent to world domination. Probably staring at a couple touchdown loss here. No game even comes close to this one in degree of difficulty....[more]

Vol Colonel leads things off on this beautiful Big Orange Tuesday.

VC With Great Observations On Butch Jones! The real truth on him is that he just wants to be liked so much that he sometimes misses the mark. Sometimes I get the feeling that fumes from the energy bus could be noxious. Look, I'm on stage a lot and many times what I intend to say doesn't come out properly. And once Jones said it last week he was forced to double down....[more]

MOSTLY; WE ARE WHAT WE THINK WE ARE: I often hear it said that Tennessee’s best seasons come when the least is expected and worst come after high preseason expectations. Heck, I’ve said it myself and set out to prove it to be the case. As research has a tendency to do I think I’ve actually uncovered the opposite. The Vols “most” of the time -to paraphrase the late Dennis Green- ARE WHAT WE THOUGHT THEY WERE. Realizing the AP preseason and postseason polls aren’t the be-all, end-all, they are as close a measurement to expectations and production that exists. With that in mind here’s how the Vols were ranked prior to and at the conclusion of each season since 1986:

2017 SEC FOOTBALL PREDICTIONS With the SEC Media Days beginning today in Hoover I wanted to beat the writers that cover the league to making a fool of myself. Here is how I feel the 2017 season will play out. If I can indeed use my lack of prognostication prowess to jinx both Florida and Alabama I will consider it a public service.

BEST RAINOUT OF ALL-TIME: As I departed last Thursday for a scheduled softball tournament word came that it had been rained out. I had already planned to take in the Giants-Braves game that evening ahead of the scheduled Friday tournament start with Nephews, Chris and Andy. So, I made the trek south. What was supposed to be another typical tournament weekend turned into a blessed family visit with two full days of fun.

After Marietta endured a full day and early evening of rain the start of the Thursday game was delayed until 9:15. My Nephews and I were already inside the gates of the new and much improved -more on that later- SunTrust Stadium but decided our visit time would be better spent in the Yard House Restaurant in The Battery located right outside the stadium’s RF Gate....[more]
