College Football Week 6: Schedule, TV, Streaming and Kickoff Times

College Football Week 6: Schedule, TV, Streaming and Kickoff Times

Check out the slate. The Tennessee Volunteers are on a (much needed) bye this weekend, but we’ve got plenty going on in Knoxville to keep us busy. There are also some football games to watch, if you need a break from the drama. The only ranked matchup on Saturday will be West Virginia vs. TCU. The Horned Frogs seem legit after beating Oklahoma State. They’ll face Will Grier and the Mountaineers — Tennessee’s 2018 opening opponent. A handful of once great SEC matchups will take place with a lot less sizzle than usual. Florida-LSU, Alabama-Texas A&M and Ole Miss-Auburn don’t...

Report: Tennessee’s Darrell Taylor, Trey Smith involved in Practice Fight

More drama. Jimmy Hyams has finally given us some reporting to go along with the rumors. I’m sure you’ve heard plenty of chatter on this — and other stuff by now. There’s been talk of a fight all week long, now Hyams is confirming that noise. Here’s the tweet-storm that Hyams sent out this afternoon.

Hoke: Darrell Taylor probably out for first half against South Carolina

Hoke: Darrell Taylor probably out for first half against South Carolina

A result of Saturday’s ejection. Darrell Taylor — a key piece for the Tennessee Volunteers up front — will likely miss the first half of the South Carolina game. Taylor was ejected from the Georgia game after getting in a pretty tame “fight” with a Georgia tight end. As Tennessee defensive line coach Brady Hoke understands, that’s going to result in a suspension for the first half against South Carolina. “As far as I’m aware, I think that’s true,” Hoke said when asked about the possibility of Taylor missing time. For what it’s worth, I found this on the NCAA...

Tennessee Football: It’s time to give Jarrett Guarantano a Start

Tennessee Football: It’s time to give Jarrett Guarantano a Start

They’ve got to figure something out. After being shutout by the Georgia Bulldogs at home and a lackluster 17 point performance against UMass, the Tennessee offense is searching for answers. Luckily, they’ve got a bye week to try and find some. The quarterback position has been the topic of discussion since Joshua Dobbs played his final snap in the Music City Bowl last winter. To this point, neither Quinten Dormady or Jarrett Guarantano have done anything to tell us that they are the future of the position. Dormady has gotten all of the starts to this point while Guarantano has seen...

Tennessee Football: Butch Jones confirms Todd Kelly Jr. will miss remainder of the season

Tennessee Football: Butch Jones confirms Todd Kelly Jr. will miss remainder of the season

Kelly had surgery today. As expected, Tennessee will be without senior safety Todd Kelly Jr. for the remainder of the season. Butch Jones confirmed that Kelly opted to undergo surgery today to repair a damaged knee. The rumor mill had been churning on Kelly for a couple of weeks before he was ruled out against the Florida Gators. It was reported then that the issue was serious and would likely cost Kelly his entire season. It’s not all bad news, potentially. There’s a chance that Kelly could return to the program next season, if that’s something he wants to do. He can seek a medical...

A coaching search will soon be happening for the Tennessee Vols.

By The Numbers: Vols vs Top Ten Opponents Under Butch Jones

By The Numbers: Vols vs Top Ten Opponents Under Butch Jones

A quick look at Tennessee’s record in big games under Jones. After last night’s debacle, I started thinking about all of the tough(er) opponents that the Vols have played recently, so I cranked up the ol’ Google machine and got to work. The Vols have played in a dozen (12) games against opponents that were ranked in the top ten at the time of the game. It is somewhat important to note that four of the games are against Alabama, but the other eight games were all different teams, so this is a fair measure. Tennessee is 0-12 against teams ranked in the top ten at the time of the...

Tennessee vs Georgia Recap: Bulldogs Blowout the Vols, 41-0

Tennessee vs Georgia Recap: Bulldogs Blowout the Vols, 41-0

This loss rivals Oregon as the worst loss of the Butch Jones era. Tennessee entered this weekend's game against the Georgia Bulldogs with an opportunity to get themselves back in the race for the SEC East division crown. They also had a chance to rid themselves of all the negative press and opinions surrounding the program. But the Bulldogs had a different idea of how things should go and they made that pretty clear from the start. Everyone was wondering how Tennessee's offense would fare against Georgia's defense and that wonderment was squashed quickly when quarterback Quinten Dormady...

Tennessee-Georgia: Here’s what Butch Jones said after the game

Tennessee suffered the worst loss at home since 1905 today against the Georgia Bulldogs. The 41-0 defeat was the first shutout loss the Vols have suffered since 1994. In a game where Butch Jones needed his team to show a pulse, they were flat run over by an emerging Georgia squad. You can watch the full presser here. Here are the highlights. “I thought our kids were ready to play,” “When you have opportunities to make plays early in the game and you don’t, you lose those opportunities. We had some opportunities for some big plays on offense — we dropped a couple of...

Tennessee shut out for the first time since 1994

Tennessee shut out for the first time since 1994

Historical lows. For the first time in over 20 years, the Tennessee Volunteers were shut out. The 41-0 beatdown today at the hands of the Georgia Bulldogs was the first time the Vols didn’t score a single point since 1994. That came against the Florida Gators, who trounced the Vols 31-0. Today seemed to set the tone for the rest of the season. Butch Jones and the Tennessee program brought out the gray jerseys, checkered Neyland and even Peyton Manning. None of it worked. Tennessee was overpowered. I’m not sure how you get off the mat from this one. The Vols may be 3-2, but they have...
