Today On Rocky Top: Tennessee Volunteers News 4/1

From Rant Sports

Jones can lead the Volunteers to their first bowl game in two seasons, which would be a tremendous feat at a program that has struggled to gain momentum despite great talent the past few years.  The future is already bright for Tennessee’s football program, but a bowl game would aid their recruiting a great deal and cement Jones as a good hire for the University of Tennessee.


From the Oklahoma Daily

The Sooners fought hard, but failed to reduce the gap, losing to the Tennessee Lady Volunteers Sunday at Chesapeake Energy Arena, 74-59.

The Lady Volunteers established their presence early, ultimately proving to be too much for the Sooners, who struggled to find their shot offensively and failed to contain the Volunteers’ offensive attack.


From Go Vols Xtra

Tennessee’s advance to the Elite Eight was distinguished by a changing of the guards Sunday afternoon at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

Senior guard Kamiko Williams, not SEC co-player of the year Meighan Simmons, is starting to look like the Lady Vols’ most valuable player.



Throwing a knuckleball is harder than it looks. The delicate pitch has a mind of its own, bobbing in the breeze like a butterfly.

When it works, it makes fools out of sluggers. Yet only about 70 knuckleballers have made it to the majors.

This 2012 documentary follows two recent practitioners of this rare art, Tim Wakefield and R.A. Dickey.


From the Boston Herald

Todd Helton’s 16th straight opening day start for the Colorado Rockies could be his last.

The five-time All-Star first baseman turns 40 in August and is entering the final season of his contract.

“I do realize it’s coming to an end and enjoy everything a bit more,” he said ahead of Monday’s game at Milwaukee. “Sit back and just be in the moment a little bit more.”
