Ralph Weekly stopped mid-story, repositioning his hat and squinting ferociously in attempt to retrieve a distant memory.

The Tennessee softball co-head coach started to recall a game that he said perfectly embodied senior Melissa Brown’s career at UT.

He described a scenario: UT’s third baseman was hit by a line drive and had to exit the game. Brown was summoned from the dugout to replace the injured starter.

After defeating Colin Kaepernick by a 53% to 47% margin in the Quarterfinal round of the Madden 25 Cover Vote, VFL Arian Foster has reached the Final Four!

He will face off against Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings in the semifinal round of the vote as the best of the New School side of the bracket.

Throughout spring practice, a goal of the Tennessee football team has been to develop consistency and fight through adversity on both sides of the ball. At Thursday morning’s practice, the offense took a step toward that objective.

Tennessee Volunteer head coach Butch Jones continues his PR spin on the responsibility campaign for his players with what he calls the “Circle of Life.”After breaking down the video, he informs each player of the mistakes they made, including loafs.

My favorite part of this whole thing? A missed tackle constitutes a “loaf.” Good.
