What a wild weekend in Big Orange Country. Congrats to the Vols on an entertaining first half of Saturday's Spring Game. The weather just wouldn't cooperate but this didn't stop Tennessee from attempting to make the show go on. Tennessee made the right decision in cutting things short at a half. It's kind of a shame they couldn't have done the same last November down at Vandy. And this is where we begin on this 24th of April. The Vandy hangover lingers. That taste will remain in the mouth of the living Vol Nation until Tennessee proves itself worthy. Here's hoping Tennessee will use the hunger of this hangover in Big Orange Country to propel them forward during summer workouts.

Special thanks for Brian Hartman and Dr. Sean Sinclair for hosting the SmartWay/Garza Law Firm Fifth Quarter Fan Reaction. Great job guys. It was terrific listening to the various takes of our limited sample from the spring game. I'm really proud of our broadcast team for keeping our streak alive of delivering on UT Postgame even while I'm away tending to my hospice-stricken father. Also, thanks to the callers for lifting my spirits on Saturday.

Vols Pick Up Two Over The Weekend:

Included in the haul is 3 star QB Michael Penix. Some in these parts and wondering where the sizzle is with the steak thus far. Or is it the steak with the sizzle? Star gazers won't like Penix's love profile but profiles don't always equal production. Tennessee overall lack of stars in the class early on is a mild concern.

Last night, Georgia wide receiver Jatavious Harris committed to Tennessee citing the family atmosphere around the program. Here's a look at some highlights of Harris. Looks like a nice athlete. Link

It was a washout weekend in East Tennessee. People who enjoy rain are the ones who enjoyed the previous 48 hours.

1. UT baseball was a little more offense away from a very productive weekend in College Station. As it is, they managed to salvage one game.

2. Not really anything of note coming out of the Orange & White game. The format and the weather saw to that.

3. Arsene Wenger will get a shot at another FA Cup. That will hopefully be a nice parting gift for him.

4. Milwaukee's inexperience showed in Game 4 against Toronto. They didn't finish off a vulnerable team.

5. Atlanta got off the deck to get back in their series against Washington. The Hawks now have to put back to back quality performances together.

6. David Fizdale is doing a masterful coaching job. It's amazing that the Grizzlies have that series even.

7. Oklahoma City could not find a second scorer and that killed them in Game 4. Russell Westbrook can only do so much.

8. Chicago let an opportunity to put the Celtics away yesterday. They were terrible in the fourth quarter.

9. The Clippers keep showing fight. I just think they are now playing a beaten game.

Poor Dave Serrano.... Could the UT Baseball nightmare just end at some point for this guy? Neither he nor Kyle ever caught any traction at UT. I feel terribly for the poor guy. I really believe Serrano is a pretty good guy, but for whatever reason the Tennessee Baseball Vortex has swallowed him. Really sad. The Vols actually played respectably in losing 2 out of 3 close games at College Station. Give those young kids credit for eking out a 5-3 win in 14 innings early last night.

Prayers Up:
For Tony Basilio Radio Show Family member Barry Armstrong. Barry, get well soon my friend. You are loved and appreciated here! Don't ever forget it.

On the way out, I want to apologize for the diminutive blog today. I've been at the hospice for a bunch of hours and quite frankly don't have it in me today to focus. Thanks for your understanding.
