Really proud of our reporting here on the UT Athletic Director search and the turn to Phillip Fulmer. We were way out in front of that yesterday with some terrific behind the scenes stuff. I do want to once again offer the viewpoint that Fulmer minus Blackburn isn't going to look right. It's just not. I really hope that if this comes to pass that Coach Fulmer will offer DB a chance to come back home and be his strong second. If he does this, we could see a real difference made with this move. If not, I'm afraid it's going to be tough for Fulmer to fend off the critics and unite folks the way this hire needs to. I sure hope he sees the light on this deal....[more]

E-MAIL TO PRESIDENT DIPIETRO: With Tony dedicating most of this week’s shows to impassioned pleas to anyone who would listen and Copper Cellar Family of Restaurants Owner Mike Chase’s Twitter support for the hiring of David Blackburn as Tennessee’s next AD I thought it was time for me to toss my pebble into the sea. Here is the e-mail I sent on Wednesday evening:

Mr. DiPietro,

As a graduate of the University of Tennessee and a lifelong fan of the University's Athletic program I urge you to make your voice heard in the hiring of David Blackburn as our next Athletic Director. In over 50 years of closely following Tennessee sports I have never witnessed such overwhelming support behind a candidate -with the possible exception of John Majors return in 1977- by the Tennessee fan base for any candidate seeking any position at the University. He has earned the opportunity and you will never regret his hiring....[more]

WHOEVER’S NEXT: With Josh Dobbs completing his eligibility and new blood (or same blood, new role) filling both the Offensive Coordinator and QB Coach positions spring and fall football practices should be newsworthy for Butch Jones and the Tennessee program. Like most I believe Jarrett Guarantano is the favorite for the heir-apparent role and the best fit for what Jones -and it will still be Butch’s offense- wants his attack to be. Unlike most I don’t believe it is a slam dunk he starts Game 1 versus Georgia Tech due to the fact the slate is being wiped somewhat clean with the staff changes mentioned above…and Butch’s decision making quirks. Regardless of who wins the job my hope for them is that they are less careless with the ball than Josh was at times last season and that they avoid suffering through a dreadful day as he experienced in Columbia, S.C. Other than that, if they’ll just be Josh Dobbs I will be perfectly satisfied with our QB play....[more]

UNITS THAT CAN JUMP IN 2017: With 2016 in the rearview mirror it’s time to look at areas of concern for Tennessee Football that are likely to improve in 2017. If there is anything good that comes out of an underachievement it is usually the increased prospects for improvement. Here are the areas I expect to see take a step up:

OFFENSIVE LINE: With the only expected defection being the graduating Dylan Wiesman the Vols return one of the most veteran units in the SEC. Drew Richmond appears to be taking small steps of improvement and could take a leap under a real Strength and Conditioning coach. Also, don’t count out Trey Smith becoming the rare freshman O-Lineman to start from day 1. The unit hopefully benefits from a less injury-plagued season and instruction from a single voice both of which are likely to improve continuity....[more]
