UT vs. Oregon to kickoff at 7 p.m. on ESPN2

A Tennessee match-up with a Pac-10 team again has proved irresistible to the networks.

ESPN will televise UT’s game against Oregon on Sept. 11 from Neyland Stadium. Kickoff time is 7 p.m. on ESPN2.

The game will continue a series of early season national telecasts for UT versus Pac-10 opponents.

Last season, the Vols completed a two-games series with UCLA. Both games were televised nationally, including the 2008 season opener from the Rose Bowl on Labor Day night.

In 2006 and 2007, UT opened the season against California. Those games were nationally televised, too.

The Vols upset ninth-ranked Cal at Neyland Stadium in 2006. Since then, they have lost three consecutive September games to Pac-10 opponents.

Oregon might be their toughest challenge yet.

The Ducks likely will be ranked in the top 10 in the preseason polls. They will return the large majority of starters from their Pac-10 championship team, which won 10 games.

Previously announced game times for UT include Sept. 18 against Florida (CBS, 3:30 p.m.), Oct. 2 at LSU (CBS, 3:30 p.m.) and Nov. 6 against Memphis (CBS College Sports, 8 p.m.).

BTW D!Ck - Florida entered last year a consensus pre-season national champion and choked big time - and sent Tebow crying like a baby girl. Florida's entire season was a disappointment - bowl win over Cincinnati.

Read my posts - I indicated 6 months ago that Tebow would be a surprise first round "novelty pick" but would follow the gator tradition of $ucking in the NFL as a QB. No draft analyst indicates this is a good pick for Denver.

So in summary - Florida chokes, Tebow cries -- so you trolls should worry about your won underachieving team.

Yes indeed...Roasted Oregon duck sounds just perfect for after a great Big Orange football game.

I just have a feeling that CDD will put the special teams and the "O" into the 4 wheel drive Dooley mode...The "D" will pull some surprises that really confuse the the ducklings and cause some turnovers and then at the end of the game Mr Palardy will calmly size it up and start his run to kicking history by making the field goal that will get the Big Orange WIN and stun the college football world.

The very next week the Gators will think they know what our "D" will do but it will be totally different and nothing like Urban Crier expects to see and we just might upset them too.

Our "D" coordinator is known to have a completely different "D" from 1 week to the next so the next opponent never knows what to expect.

How sweet it would be to have roasted duck 1 week and Gator burgers the next.

I guess it says a lot about where we are that while I am hungry for news on player-led voluntary practices, and can't wait for August practices to begin, I'm not really ready or eager to think about the season yet.

Baby steps. We'll get there, but for now... baby steps.

You are right on the money about Justin Wilcox!! He also loves knocking the Oregon QB's out of the game with some nasty hits...

Yeah, me too. However, I do remember that Cal game in 2006 when they were highly ranked and UT was just supposed to be a warm-up. It seemed those Vols had a chip on their shoulder and the fans couldn't have been louder. However, that Vol team had a lot more experience, esp. on the offensive side of the ball. Maybe, since the game is early in the season, our lack of depth won't be such a factor (few injuries yet, etc.). Hopefully, either Sims or Bray will have established themselves and the OL will have been coached up. I also like that idea from an earlier post of athlete-initiated practices over the summer! Which one of these guys is going to step up into that leadership role?

As for the Duck game, should be great for recruiting when we take a nasty loss on Primetime. Great... We can hope, but folks please they outmatch us BIG TIME!!! Id rather have more cupcakes out of conference. Ever wonder why LSU, Florida (dont count FSU), and BAMA are getting the National Championships these days? The SEC is enough, why waste the chance for a bad loss with hard out of Conference play. Yeah,its WONDERFUL when you win, but season ending when ya take a loss. Auburn is the only team this hurt, and with 12 games these days, the extra SEC title game, and the SEC itself, its ridiculous to take on difficult foes for no reason until bowl season.

Player organized practices are a yearly thing. It's not new, Nick Reveiz/Art Evans and Gerald Jones/Denarius Moore will probably run each side of the ball. Hit the weight room, get some conditioning, come out in August and get ready to play some football. And do it with ALL YOUR MIGHT! Everyone is worried about playing Oregon? Look at their perspective, coming into one of the biggest/most hostile crowds and stadiums in the country only to play and get sent home disappointed. Hopefully we can build some momentum off the first game of the season. Night game in Neyland Stadium? Gotta love it. Can't wait til Football Time in Tennessee!!!

Roasted Duck with Dried Apricots and Prunes

SERVINGS
4 to 6

INGREDIENTS
1 duck, 3 to 4 pounds, fat removed from cavity
salt and pepper, to taste
4 ounces dried apricots
4 ounces prunes
3 tablespoons Madeira
1/4 cup chicken or vegetable broth

PREPARATION
1. To prepare the duck, pierce the skin of the breast and legs with the sharp tines of a fork or a paring knife. This will help the fat to render out as it roasts.

2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

3. Season the duck with salt and pepper

4. Roast the duck for about 45 minutes making sure to turn it from side to side every 10 minutes. The duck should finish breast side up.

5. Skim off as much of the fat as possible from the pan, then add the apricots, prunes, Madeira and broth. Let roast for another 15 minutes. Remove the duck from the roasting pan and let rest for 15 minutes. Reserve the sauce warm before serving.

I do concur Loyalvol, honestly. However I think my perspective isnt fully understood. Tennesse Plays Florida, Alabama, and Georgia yearly. Thats two recent National Champions, and contenders yearly. UGA is a power program even when down a bit. You can toss in SC and of course the annual odd ball from the West that happens to be LSU this year, yet another recent National Champion. So thats a guaranteed VERY respectable schedule each year, that plays the best of the best at least 2-4 times, WITHOUT an SEC championship, that would push that number to 2-5 bests of the bests.

My take on cupcakes, well i feel you do learn from playing them:

1. You get your team rolling, get their feet wet so to speak.
2. You build much needed confidence in a season that is only 12 games long.
3. You get 4 almost sure wins, (needed for advancement for a bowl game) which sets you up for more TV time, $, and of course a match up with a solid "Out of Conference" foe.
4. You get VERY MUCH NEEDED play time for your back ups (most of the time)

It just seems to me its wise in more ways. Sure you want to play the best, but we are more than playing a get ya there schedule every year.

Either way, fun to watch

Too bad this game isn't being played at 3:30 PM in the afternoon. That way Oregon could get a bit of the true meaning of playing football in the Southeast in September with the heat and humidity. They would have been on the "sunny" side the entire afternoon. GBO.

Rolltidejoe, or whatever...........

In what city is the KNS based? Which University is there? What else do you need to know? There were once upon a time writers such as Lundy, Siler, and Marvin West who were decent writers and even though Hooker and Adams aren't nearly those writers' equal, the paper has always been fairly loyal to the Vols.
On Sunday after the game, what huge photo is on the front page, which articles are attributed to the Tennessee game from Saturday? If you don't know, try buying a Sunday News Sentinel. I have copies from 1967 and have yet to see anything on the front page or following pages concerning the likes of Florida or Alabama etc. Usually, somewhere near the back of the paper, where they should be. One of those is prob the one you follow.

As for the comment re playing cupcakes out of conference, these schedules are made up years in advance. Seems we already know we're playing
Nebraska, Oklahoma, Ohio State etc in the very near future. Most Vol fans want to see these games, and it greatly helps end of season rankings also. When people ask "who did you play" it's nice to say it wasn't Troy, Charleston Southern, Fla Atlantic, the Citadel etc. Also, in the past, the Vols have done pretty well with their out of conference opponents.
The ones I have seen us beat, Cal, Penn State, Kansas,
TCU, Maryland, Southern Miss, Houston, SMU, Boston College, Clemson, Colo State, Washington State, East Carolina, Georgia Tech, Miami, Notre Dame, Pitt, So Cal, Syracuse, Texas Tech..........to name a few, can't be considered cupcakes, and I'm glad the Vols had them on the schedule.

Correction: We did lose that 1980 Southern Cal game with Marcus Allen and the same year, Pitt and again in 1983..........but point is we did play the type of schedule previously referenced, and I'm again glad Tennessee does not back off from playing decent opponents aside from what we already know is the best conference in the country.........the SEC.

I continue to say that if we can kick field goals on a regular basis and improve the other areas of special teams play then a lot of good things are going to happen. Good special teams play can change the dynamics of games in a hurry. One problem that us fans have is that we are soooo used to seeing the other teams we play make great special teams plays such as the long punt return that sets up their game winning score because we did not cover well, etc, etc. I feel that our improved special teams will account for 2 wins against teams that we were an underdog to next season.

... Smokey knows where the bones are buried.

I disagree on scheduling. 3 cupcakes and a good team is how it should be done. Schedules are done in advance so its hard to tell when a team will be good, but UT has always scheduled 1 big name. I like seeing my Vols play on National TV. Bama scheduled VT last year. Florida scheduled FSU and Miami the year they won it. LSU scheduled VT the year they won it. Actually it looks like it helps to have one good OOC team on your schedule. I can wait to see the Oregon game. I doubt they will even televise the UT Martin. UT might be an underdog, but coming to Knoxville wont be easy and UT has pulled off upsets before. I like the night games too so I can watch football all day. If UT plays early and loses, my interest level drops and I dont enjoy the rest of the games .

Absolutely. Having a succesful season and underachieving are 2 different things. 12-1 is underachieving when the team has a returning Heismann QB and is a consensus pick to with the SEC and NCAA Championships and doesn't do it.

If you asked Tebow, Myer, or just about any Florida fan in August 2009 - whether it would be acceptable to finish 2nd in the SEC and NCAA - what do you think the answer would be?

Tennessee underachieved in 2001 and 1997 - but they were still successful seasons by many metrics.

Striker you make many good points. My main point was is that fans should to be excited about playing good competition instead of being scared of it. We know that there are cup cakes on every schedule but beating them is nowhere near as exciting as beating a good team.

Well, Coach Wilcox is in his first yr so he may not get to change it up as much since everyone is new to his system. But, we have absolutely no reason to think our defense will not be very strong.

And, I bet you are right with the Special Teams. We probably won't look sharp offensively, but with a strong defense, better special teams, hopefully fewer turnovers, a firsthand scouting report from Coach Wilcox, and the real X factor, something to prove (not to mention a crowd desperate for a redeeming quality win in a packed Neyland Night Game), I think we really do have a shot to win. I don't think we would win 2 out of 3 against them, but you only have to win this one.

And, we aren't the only ones who think this could be a great game. That's why ESPN picked it up.

In the meantime though, I would really like to hear (or read) something out of Coach Dooley's mouth other than the long row to hoe (and please NO to fight like heck). I appreciate him managing expectations, but he could at least say he expects us to compete in every game and make the other team earn their win. Just something...
