The holiday season is a time for Tennessee Vols fans to have hope. Here is a Volunteers wish list for the 2019-2020 holiday period.
Merry Christmas everybody. As the holiday draws to a close, people now know what they got and whether or not their wish lists were fulfilled. However, in the world of college sports, the holiday wish lists last through the bowl season in football and ahead of conference play in basketball. The same is true for the Tennessee Vols.
It’s all somewhat of a transition period, so things aren’t actually realized until after Christmas. Gifts for the holidays come between the Early Signing Period and the end of the second week of January, and that’s where we are putting our focus here.
When it comes to the Tennessee Vols, there are lots of things for them to hope for over the next month. The holiday season has been one of excitement during the early signing period but also sadness with Lamonte Turner having to end his career on UT.
Now, during the holiday season, we look at how they can keep things bright. It’s worth noting that there’s nothing in particular standing out with the women’s basketball program for once, so nothing on there makes the holiday wish list. Kellie Harper is really just coaching with house money during her first season on Rocky Top.
However, basketball and football personnel along with outcomes of football games that affect Rocky Top all make the list. In unique fashion, the hope that something that has already happened actually worked in UT’s favor is also on the list.
We’ll break all of that down here. As the new decade rolls around, maybe a few things will start to turn in UT’s favor when it comes to luck. So let’s see what could hit Rocky Top in a positive way during this time period. These are the five biggest things on the wish list for the Tennessee Vols during the 2019-2020 holiday season.
