This is a signing dilemma no one foresaw last year at this time. How great it is to have so many talented players ready to sign with Tennessee. And what a testament to coach Jones and this great staff. Even with all these good players, I expect next year to be another year where W's are hard to come by. As always we have a lot of inexperience in key spots and a tough schedule. But soon.....very soon....we are once again going to be the toughest game on other people's schedules! Great job CBJ and keep cementing in those bricks!

Good post OP. We all know the VOLS play in Norman Ok. I'm already waiting for 2015 when the Sooners come to Knoxville. G.B.O. Not sure what happened on my previous post.
