  • Vols fall to James Madison to end two game series March 19, 2018 To say Tennessee had a rough outing against JMU on Wednesday would be a massive understatement as the Vols finished the game with just five runs on five hits and two errors, while the Dukes had 21 runs on 21 hits and had one error. James Madison took an early lead in the top of the first on a single from Fox Semones that drove in two runs and Tennessee was unable to answer in the bottom half of the inning.

  • Marcus Peters trade recap. March 14, 2018 If you have ever had the chance to see Marcus Peters perform on the field it is like watching some sort of WWE star in between plays. His enraged filled face along with screaming bloody murder after stopping a team on third down all came across national television as some sort of villain like character. Those theories held by fans have never been questioned. In fact, even when he was getting drafted most scouts and general managers wouldn’t give him a look due to his attitude issues. Andy Reid bit the bullet and snagged Peters in the first round, despite all the questions on whether he would be able to mature into a young man that could lift up a locker room. The one thing Reid nailed was his on field skill. Peters has forced 26 turnovers over his first three seasons in the NFL. He also has had a knack  for finding the football, as ... Read more

  • Vols take game one with JMU 10-1 March 7, 2018 It was fast, it was furious, and to be honest it was decided in the very first inning. Coming into Tuesday’s game you could say the Vols were limping. They had lost 2 of 3 over the weekend in the Tri-Star Classic and had yet to find any consistency on the mound. On Tuesday Freshman Sean Hunley was dealing on the mound. He had six strikeouts and allowed only seven hits, while walking just one batter. However, it was the offense that would all but end this game before it could even truly start. The Vols came out swinging in the first inning scoring seven runs on eight hits. UT never looked back cruising to a 10-1 victory in just under three hours of play.

South Carolina would have a lead as large as 16 in the first half and their largest lead of the game was 18 and came with 7:33 left in the fourth quarter. Tennessee would battle back in both the first and second half. UT was able to cut the USC lead to 11 at the half and had it within single digits in the fourth quarter, but the Lady Vols could just never get all the way back.

  • State runs out of cowbell’s against Tennessee March 2, 2018 The Vols were sluggish in the first 10 minutes or so Tuesday night when they played the Bulldogs of Mississippi State in Starkville. It was a big game and after that Tennessee had a different kind of wakeup. That sluggish start turned into a six-point Volunteer lead at halftime. By the halfway point of the second half, it was a shelling. Here are four takeaways from Tennessee’s 22-point win over Mississippi State. Vols destroy the glass Tennessee just didn’t crash the glass on Tuesday, they destroyed it. It’s always good to win the offensive rebounding category, which Tennessee did 6-5.

It was not an easy victory however, as the Lady Vols trailed at the end of the first half 38-35. Auburn would not go quietly into the night in the second half as it took a late three pointer from Rennia Davis to clinch it for Tennessee. Unfortunately, the Lady Vols did not escape what everyone knew would be a physical game unscathed. Jaime Nared went down in the 4th quarter with what seemed to be a hip injury. She tried to re-enter the game and did score a basket, but was in obvious pain and pulled herself for the remainder of the game. She seemed to be ok and should be good to go for the game tomorrow night, though she may not be 100 percent. The ... Read more
