Tennessee Football: Freshman Cornerback Continues to Receive Big Praise from Coaching Staff

Tennessee Football: Freshman Cornerback Continues to Receive Big Praise from Coaching Staff

He’s going to be in the mix this fall. Cornerback was yet another soft spot on Tennessee’s 2016 defense. Letdown after letdown, the Tennessee offense was forced to pick things up to stay in games. Justin Martin and Emmanuel Moseley are the two obvious names to start this year, but the coaching staff keeps touting a freshman. It’s Shawn Shamburger. The freshman has drawn praise all camp long from Bob Shoop, Butch Jones and Charlton Warren. As we get closer to the opener, the hype is getting very real. “A freshman that’s really starting to step up is Shawn Shamburger. He’s...

Tennessee Football: Butch Jones says Evan Berry could play some offense in 2017

This should excite you. When asked about the possibility of playing senior safety Evan Berry on offense, Tennessee head coach Butch Jones didn’t shy away from it. “There’s a possibility there,” Jones said. Butch had just finished stressing that the team needed to find playmakers and consistency on both sides of the ball. If you want a playmaker, look no further than Evan Berry. We speculated on this possibility several weeks ago. “The first thing is that we have to get Evan’s health back. It starts at the safety position — it starts at the kickoff return position. You could...

WATCH: Eli Wolf Receives Scholarship Offer During Tennessee Football Practice

Congrats, Eli! Today’s practice was a memorable one for Eli Wolf. What seems like a normal day at the office turned out to be so much more for the tight end. Eli Wolf is now on scholarship. Coach Jones mentioned that Wolf had put the necessary weight on to play the tight end position. Butch praised his special teams efforts and said that he creates some matchups for Tennessee offensively. How he was awarded the scholarship was the story, however. Wolf took part in today’s circle of life drill against his brother Ethan — or so he thought. Butch interrupted the drill and surprised...

Take a look Inside of Mercedes-Benz Stadium, site of Tennessee’s opener against Georgia Tech

A new era in Atlanta. As you know by now, in 20 short days the Tennessee Volunteers will be hitting the field against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. The game may be in Atlanta, but it will be played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the new home of the Atlanta Falcons. The stadium will also serve as the new home of the SEC Championship game, ending the Georgia Dome era.

College Basketball: Battle 4 Atlantis Bracket Released

Check out the full bracket. The full bracket has been released for the Battle 4 Atlantis. As we saw yesterday from Jeff Goodman, Tennessee drew Purdue in the opening round. But now we can see the potential future opponents. http://www.atlantisbahamas.com/b4a If the Tennessee Volunteers were to pull of the upset over Purdue, they’d likely get Villanova. The Wildcats should be able to handle Western Kentucky. A loss for the Vols in the opening game would likely mean they get N.C. State, assuming the Arizona Wildcats can take care of business. Arizona probably has the...

Butch Jones Defends his Slogans, but He’s Missing the Point

Butch isn’t backing off of his sayings anytime soon. Since Butch Jones arrived in Knoxville, he’s been all about the slogans. He arrived with a major rebuild of the Tennessee Volunteers staring him in the face. “Brick by brick” became the motto of the program. Everyone bought in. Jones was killing it on the trail and seemed to have some positive momentum growing with his rebuild. Most Tennessee fans knew how bad of shape the program was in, so Jones had some leeway here. Knoxville was set to take the patient approach and embraces his “brick by brick” mantra. Everything was...

Tennessee Vols Should Be More Of A True “SEC” Team In 2017

The Tennessee Vols lost a lot of talent from their 2016 roster, but they could actually be better in 2017.

Tennessee just misses Top 25 of CBS 1-130 Preseason Poll

Fair? The Tennessee Volunteers have been living on the edge of the top 25 in most preseason polls. We’ve seen them left out in some and we’ve seen them as high as 19 in another. This one from CBS — which just happens to rank all 130 FBS teams — has them at 26. TCU, Washington State, NC State, Virginia Tech and Texas were the five schools ranked ahead of the Vols. Interestingly enough, CBS gave viewers the option to vote on whether each team was ranked too high or too low. At the time of writing this, 65 percent said Tennessee was too high. You can probably thank last year’s...

Joshua Dobbs Has The Potential To Become A Starting NFL Quarterback

The former Vol showed flashes of the ability to be an effective starter in the NFL. Cue the overreactions and hot takes, the NFL preseason has officially begun! This is the time of year to pay attention to every single detail and to treat each obstacle as if it has the potential to derail your favorite team's entire season. Every injury, every roster cut, and every play - mostly holding your breath hoping a key player doesn't get hurt - can feel as if you are going through some type of football purgatory. But speaking of potential, Joshua Dobbs, the quarterback for the Pittsburgh...
