Today On Rocky Top: Should Vols Worry About WKU Offense & More


From Bleacher Report

Tennessee coach Butch Jones admitted it was on his mind immediately following the Austin Peay win.

“Western Kentucky has our attention,” Jones said bluntly on The Butch Jones Show.

For good reason, too. Truthfully, Jones has probably been scheming for the season’s second game for months. Not only do the Hilltoppers have some NFL talent on defense, but Bobby Petrino’s offense was meticulous and methodical in beating another Southeastern Conference opponent, Kentucky, 35-26 last Saturday.

 

From SB Nation

The Tennessee Volunteers continue to roll on strong on the recruiting trail in 2013, and currently stand third in the nation in the 247Composite recruiting rankings. The Vols are behind only Alabama and Ohio State, and rank ahead of both Georgia and Florida in the SEC.

 

From The AP

Antonio Barton says he’s still getting used to being on a different side of the Tennessee-Memphis rivalry.

His new teammates are making the point guard’s adjustment easier.

After graduating from Memphis in three years, Barton decided to transfer for his final season of eligibility. He cited the sales pitch of Tennessee’s players as a major reason why he selected the Volunteers.

 

From WBIR

A pair of former UT football players have joined another former college player in suing the NCAA for failing to educate them about the risks of concussions, and not doing enough to prevent, diagnose, and treat them.

Chris Walker and Ben Martin were defensive ends at UT from 2007-2011. Dan Ahern played for North Carolina State from 1972-76. Their attorney filed a class-action lawsuit in federal court in Chattanooga on Wednesday.

The suit asks for “the establishment of a court-supervised fund to provide medical monitoring due to their increased risk of latent brain injuries caused by repeated traumatic head impacts suffered by them in the period during which they played NCAA football.”
