Today On Rocky Top: Tennessee Volunteers 4/23

From Go Vols Xtra

Offensive struggles might very well turn out to be the story of the 2013 season. Just don’t put your season tickets on eBay because Saturday didn’t fast-track any Vols onto the Heisman Trophy checklist.

Spring games, after all, are notorious for providing false leads.


From the Times Free Press

As he left the field after capping a surprising spring surge with a 101-yard Orange and White Game rushing performance Saturday, Tennessee tailback Alden Hill wanted an immediate assessment.

So the redshirt freshman walked off the field side by side with Robert Gilliespie, listening to what the Volunteers’ running backs coach had to say.

Gillespie told Hill there was good and bad in his performance, but despite his emergence in Tennessee’s in-flux backfield, Hill was thinking about the negative.


From Forbes

A system such as this is much cheaper than the cable mounted systems used by networks.  In fact a drone similar to this one can be purchased through various online retailers for under $1,000 (see for example links from the hobbyist site DIY Drones), although very sophisticated systems for commercial use, such as those sold by UAV Rotor King can exceed $2,500.  The actual system depicted in the video appears to be a Hoverfly Erista.   Below is a video of the Erista in action, one thing you’ll notice from the video is that these drones are quite loud.  If you’re worried about spying, it’s unlikely that a multi-rotor drone like this will sneak up on you.  Moreover, it’s flight time is limited to just 10 minutes.


From Rocky Top Talk

The attendance ended up being north of 61,000, the second-largest spring game crowd in the history of the program, and the first that wasn’t following the 1985-’86 Sugar Bowl and to which Guinness hadn’t been invited. (Guinness may have been the only entity not invited, come to think of it.). It beat the spring game in Lane Kiffin’s first year, when half the people were glad to finally see Phillip Fulmer go and the other half were consoling themselves with the appearance of the coaching chimera and the treasure of enthusiasm (CRUNK!) it brought with it.


From the UT Daily Beacon

The Tennessee Volunteers Baseball team suffered a 4-3 defeat against the Ole Miss Rebels on Sunday, completing a sweep of the weekend series that left the Vols outscored 15-7.

It was a devastating loss for the Volunteers as Tennessee entered the ninth inning with a 3-1 lead against No. 17 Ole Miss who managed to seize three runs and win the game by one.

“We’re disappointed after every loss,” pitcher Zack Godley said. “It hurts, but it sucks to lose that way. We’ve got to come back next week and get better. That’s all I can do.”
