Orange Throat leads things off on this Friday. If I divulged his identity, besides killing me, he would never write another word for us. Believe me, Dar Throat is connected. Here's his latest musings exclusively for your eyes only because you clicked here today.

Great job Throaty. Reading your post had me reminiscing to last Friday. It was exactly one week ago that I was asking in this very space if Tennessee was turning the corner in Baseball. They had won 3 of 4 SEC games just 7 days ago. And they literally haven't won since....[more]

WE TALKIN BOUT FANTASY? It’s time for me to bore many to tears and launch others into an Allen Iverson like tirade of “We talkin bout fantasy? Not a game…not a game…we talking bout fantasy?” Well it’s my blog and its April so YES “we talkin bout fantasy”.

Fantasy baseball as I have mentioned in the past is one of those things that I love dearly but can’t play a lick. I guess I’m not an accomplished enough sabermatrician and I have been fairly Yankee-centric throughout most of my fanhood....[more]

What a huge day for UT! Great to see the football program coming back to life. All that's missing now is the winning. This is fun! I feel so great for this community. This is really fun. Jarrett Guarantano might be the best player ever or he might not make it here or somewhere in between. This isn't really important. What is important is that this young represents HOPE for this fan base. Hope is a great thing. When you go through the wilderness, hope is an important thing....[more]

Tennessee could procure the services of their QB of the future today. It's been a whirlwind recruitment between Tennessee and Jarrett Guarantano. This is a credibility recruit that could help solidify the formation of another great class.

'X', presented by both Smoothie King and Fairways and Greens is bullish on this guy.

'By mid afternoon today, Tennessee is going to get an early Christmas present or a big lump of coal in the pre-Christmas stocking. Basilio is right.....This truly could be remembered as the day Tennessee’s 2016 recruiting class to a step from being “pretty good” being “special” or it could be the day Tennessee gets a big ole kick in the junk.

We all know college football season never stops....[more]

MLB 2015: With the NCAA Tournament in the rear-view mirror and Tennessee’s annual search for a new basketball coach completed it’s time to turn my attention to MLB. The game has issues such as pace, diminished offensive competence and ridiculous player salaries but I do still love it so. I guess I’m like James Earl Jones’ character Terrance Mann in Field of Dreams who said:

Ray, people will come Ray. They'll come to Iowa for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn up your driveway not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at your door as innocent as children, longing for the past....[more]

EARLY EDITION: With the hiring of Rick Barnes as Tennessee’s third basketball coach in three years apparently imminent I couldn’t let Tony, Hatfield, Vol Colonel and Orange Throat have all the introductory fun leaving only scraps on the table for my blog’s usual Thursday night post time could I? So without further ado let’s get into it.

HART ATTACK I don’t know if Dave Hart has a “level of expertise and a level of information that no one else has” but when it comes to the hiring process he has Deion Sanders esque speed and a horseshoe strategically placed in an area of his body that it would take a cavity search to discover. Somehow through a series of blunders he has upgraded from Cuonzo Martin to Rick Barnes in less than a year’s time. Are there questions about Barnes’ potential ceiling here? No question....[more]
