5 Days out from National Signing Day!!! Reminder!!! You're invited to join us live on site as we are doing an unprecedented recruiting Triple Cast at Smoky Mountain Brewery @ Turkey Creek in West Knoxville. When I say we, I mean 3 different radio shows from 3 different radio stations, joining forces all in one spot to serve you the living common fan. I sure do hope that you will make plans to join us as Jason Swain will lead things off in the morning from 7a to 11a followed by yours truly from 11a-3p followed by Russell Smith from 94.3 FM.

Now that Quarte Sapp is in the barn, Tennessee is sitting at 29. So, for everybody that comes aboard the boat a body must go overboard. Or does it? Pat Allen awaits. Does Tennessee turn him down...[more]
HOOPS LOOK AHEAD and THE OC "SEARCH"

SINCE WE LAST SPOKE: 1-29-15

HOOPS LOOK-AHEAD: The recent two-game losing streak has our Vol Basketball team sitting at 12-7 overall, 4-3 in-conference and though the last week has been underwhelming, still ahead of where most projected. Games against Auburn Saturday and a rematch with Mississippi State the following Tuesday will bring us to the midway point of the conference season and as the caller Mouthpiece astutely pointed out on the SmartWay/Dalton Bearing Overtime Show two wins and a 6-3 record would be an SEC Coach of the Year-worthy start for Donnie Tyndall. It would also provide a crucial cushion with a seemingly much more difficult SEC slate remaining. Five of the Vols last nine contests are on the road (Ga, Vandy, Ole Miss, Fla & LSU) -all of which are more difficult tasks than any faced to-date with the exception of Bud Walton Arena- with the seemingly-invincible Kentucky Wildcats one the remaining four games in TBA. Tyndall and company have to this point been a very pleasant surprise but even the most wild-eyed optimist would have to admit that a winning record in the last 9 would be the most shocking development of all. That being said here is how I would categorize the remaining regular season games:

PROBABLE LOSSES: @Vandy (Feb 11; I hate that hell-hole); Kentucky (Feb 17); @Florida (Feb 28); @LSU (Mar 4)...[more]

Vol Colonel is my guy. This guy is fighting cancer and monitoring the situation at UT with complete aplomb. And he's a wonderful reader of the tea leaves. When I get appreciation from Vol Colonel for the way I'm reading the tea leaves myself, I know I've done good. And VC says to me today, 'kid, ya done good.'...[more]

Goodman reported last night on Twitter that the NCAA was back in Hattiesburg, Miss yesterday interviewing two different players Tyndall signees in Jeremiah Eason and Rasham Suarez. Jason Munz who writes for the Hattiesburg American then reported that both guys were held out of practice yesterday. I was told by a well placed source in the UT athletic department that this development did not come as a surprise to Tennessee. I believe that this round of interviews is related to the alleged academic improprieties component of the investigation.

It's extremely important to point out that Jeff Goodman had excellent information yesterday when he shared that the investigation is way off schedule in terms of where Tennessee thought it would be....[more]

BIDDING BAJAKIAN BYE: Through the first two years of Butch Jones’ tenure as the Vols Head Man I have resisted the urge to quickly judge his coaching staff or approach. I have steadfastly supported the thought process that you can’t accurately –or fairly- evaluate coaches or how they use the players at their disposal when many of their conference opponents have much more to work with. That being said I must admit I have been far from sold on Mike Bajakian and have even entertained early thoughts that the Vols may have an SEC-caliber defensive staff and a Big East offensive staff. While not the President of the Mike Bajakian fan club there is something very comforting about staff stability –in very short supply around here for years- and Jones will now be forced to hire only the second OC of his 8 year head coaching career. I also believe that regardless of who replaces Bajakian that the offense will remain exactly what Butch Jones wants it to be. He won’t soon be seeking my council but unsolicited here is what I want it to be; one that requires less carries by Josh Dobbs lessening his chance of missed time due to injury; a RB-by-committee approach that still features but preserves Jalen Hurd; a more cohesive O-Line alignment with a more physical and sound technique blocking approach and much more efficiency in short yardage and red zone opportunities. That is probably too much to ask from one man but not if the right candidate is selected and his boss is willing to adjust his thinking slightly as well....[more]

TRACKING TYNDALL: While fully admitting that judging a coach –good or bad- prior to year three usually proves inaccurate and is almost always unreasonable I can’t help it when it comes to Donnie Tyndall; I love the guy. So here are my waaaay too early impressions:

HE’S AN ARCHITECT: Anyone that can construct a team from rubble in six weeks during the slim-pickens springtime that starts 10-5 against a challenging schedule is a true builder

HE’S A TACTICIAN: He plays a unique style combining the press and matchup zone that is extremely hard for opponents to prepare for yet has been able to quickly teach it to his inexperienced unit. Unlike most teams that defend 94 feet his offense –while taking advantage of forced turnovers- is not haphazard on the offensive end and more times than not takes a quality shot.

HE EVALUATES AND ADJUSTS: Rare has been the occasion when the Vols have failed to play better in the second half than in the first....[more]
