This was going to be a column about how happy Peyton Manning is, how at peace he is in his new home with his new team.
But there was something very telling in his body language Wednesday, and in his answers, and especially in his non-answers, that pointed to something very true and elemental: As much as he loves and misses Indianapolis, he clearly has some issues now with the Indianapolis Colts and owner Jim Irsay, and he’d be perfectly happy to drop about 60 points on the Colts Sunday night.
The Tennessee Volunteers men’s basketball team will start the season with high expectations underneath 3rd-year head Cuonzo Martin.
A media poll released today have top-3 expectations in the conference for the Vols. The basketball team ranks only behind perennial conference front-runner Kentucky, which received 21 first-place votes. Florida got the second-place vote for the conference, and finished with five first-place votes.
The Vols return to their daunting SEC schedule this weekend with 6th ranked South Carolina coming to town.
The Gamecocks have won three straight games over Tennessee, and a win on Saturday would make them bowl eligible.
Coach Steve Spurrier said they’ve caught some lucky breaks the last few games, and knows that could run out soon.

From Pat Summitt — “She’s doing great” — to her upbringing to expectations for the upcoming season, University of Tennessee women’s basketball coach Harley Warlick left hardly a subject uncovered during her address to a near-capacity crowd at the Boys & Girls Club of Scott County Tuesday evening.
Speaking at the club’s annual Hall of Fame Dinner, which saw 10 new members inducted, Warlick had a message for the youth of the Boys & Girls Club as well as the adults who oversee it.
Warlick said kids should constantly be encouraged to achieve their goals.
