VOL FOOTBALL FRANCHISE FOUR: Tony had a wonderful segment on Monday’s Tony Basilio Show taking nomination for Tennessee Football’s Franchise Four. He did it in conjunction with MLB currently taking votes for each team’s Top-4 or Mount Rushmore of stars. Though extremely difficult to narrow down to four regardless of your favorite team or school it is an enjoyable and thought-provoking exercise. I have broken mine down into separate categories based on criteria that I determined and describe below:

ALL-TIME; ALL-TIME: These in my opinion are the four that had the greatest long-standing positive impact on the program:

GENERAL NEYLAND: The Father of Tennessee Football and one of the greatest most innovative coaches of all time at any level

JOHNNY MAJORS: Other than Steve Spurrier it’s hard to come up with anyone that combined as great a combined playing and coaching career than John Majors...[more]

Vol Colonel leads off today's installment in style. He's really excited about what he's seen and hearing about your 2015 UT football team. Lots of great stuff in here from VC!

The Dormady kid has had a good spring. He's picking up the offense well and he really has a nice arm. In talking to people in and around the program, the early word on this kid is really good. Everyone tells me he looks really mature for a kid going through his first spring of big time college football.

Jauan Jennings looks like a really good football player. My guys tell me he's going to be really good player here at Tennessee, but expect him to find another position, possibly as early as this summer.

Dr. Sean Sinclair brought up a point on the show Wednesday about Zach Azzanni, where he wondered when Azzanni was going to have our receivers living up to their billing....[more]

Going to be a great show today as we will be joined in hour 2 by UT OC Mike DeBord. He's the rising star and the story of the spring in my mind. We will have an adult conversation with him today on the program. Among some of the topics we will cover with DeBord include;

1) Who's developed at O-Line?

2) Who has work to do there?

3) Plans to use Hurd and Kamara together? How much of that will we see?

4) Does he believe in gamers like his mercurial soph WR? CBJ doesn't.

5) Most pleasant surprise of the spring?...[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]

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]
