Football time in Tennessee. Sweeter words were never said at the beginning of September. I've lived here for 14 years now. And I've grown to like the Vols. I'm not a rabid fan, but I do enjoy watching them. My wife likes them. We've got a good coach in Derrick Dooley. He might not have the experience of Phillip Fulmer, but he's got quite a bit more class than Lane Kiffin.
So far, UT has a 2-2 record, knocking off UT-Martin and UAB. Truthfully, UAB should have beaten them. Ah, the fickleness of Field Goal kickers. The Vols have a tough schedule. It isn't easy playing in the SEC. This isn't whining, just fact. There are some very good teams in that conference. We'll pick up a few more wins and hopefully finish at least 6-6 on the season.
I picked up this pocket schedule at my favorite local card shop in Knoxville, Sports Treasures. I was killing some time, bought a pack of 2010 Topps, Series 2 and found this at the checkout register.
