Tennessee Stat Book
Billy Cannon is returning to the scene of — in the eyes of LSU fans — the crime.
Cannon, the 1959 Heisman Trophy winner, will speak to the Knoxville Quarterback Club on Oct. 10.
In the 1959 season, Tennessee stopped Cannon on a two-point conversion to seal a 14-13 upset over the No. 1-ranked Tigers at Neyland Stadium. It is a play and an outcome still debated by LSU fans, who feel Cannon scored. UT fans, of course, are convinced the officials got it right.
The Quarterback Club's list of speakers includes former coaches Bobby Johnson of Vanderbilt (Sept. 12), Fisher DeBerry of Air Force (Nov. 28) and R.C. Slocum of Texas A&M (Sept. 26), as well as former Tennessee quarterback Erik Ainge (Nov. 21).
Representing UT will be football coach Derek Dooley (Sept. 19), president Joe DiPietro (Oct. 31), athletic director Dave Hart (Nov. 7) and men's basketball coach Cuonzo Martin (Nov. 14).
NFL veteran Chad Pennington (Oct. 24), former SEC commissioner Roy Kramer (Oct. 17) and ESPN personality Mark Schlabach (Oct. 3) round out the lineup.
Johnson opens the season Monday. The club meets at noon every Monday at Calhoun's On The River.
Meetings are open to the public. The club welcomes new members.
