Today On Rocky Top: Tennessee Volunteers News 3/31

From Rant Sports


The Tennessee Volunteers are rebuilding after losing their best players (Tyler BrayJustin Hunter and Cordarrelle Patterson) and their head coach (Derek Dooley) last season. Now, the Butch Jones coaching era begins for the Volunteers. How the Volunteers play in their first three games of the season will determine how the rest of the season plays out for Tennessee.

The Volunteers play Austin Peay in Knoxville for the first game of the season. This should be an easy win for Tennessee, and will give a needed boost to this young team’s confidence before they start to get into the tougher opponents on their schedule.

2014 four-star safety Cortez McDowell will be unofficially visiting the Auburn Tigers today, and the Tigers comprise one of McDowell’s offers from elite SEC programs. Ranked by 247Sports as the 119th best player in the nation and the 247Composite at 206th, McDowell is a reported Tennessee Volunteers lean early on.

It rained consistently and it poured periodically, but baseball was played deep into the night at Hawkins Field on Friday. No. 3 Vanderbilt took the first of a three-game series with Tennessee, defeating the Vols 4-3 in 12 innings.



With Tennessee overbooked by one scholarship for the 2013-14 squad, at least one player currently scheduled to be on scholarship next season won’t be.

The odd man out won’t be three-star point guard signee Travon Landry, according to Rob Fulford, who coached Landry at Huntington (W.V) Prep in 2012-13.


From the Times Free Press 

Mike Bajakian wants his offense to play and move quickly.

So Tennessee’s offensive coordinator wants his players thinking fast.

The pace goes well beyond the practice field, too.
