Welcome to June. This is a big recruiting month for Tennessee Football, and Caleb Calhoun and Dave Hooker are set to touch on just that in Off The Hook Sports’ Wednesday, June 1 podcast. Vols kickoff times and new quarterbacks after 10-win seasons also warranted coverage. Meanwhile, basketball returns a key player, and which college football head coaches are set to break out?
Kickoff times set for two of first three Tennessee Football games
This year, Tennessee Football will open the season at noon on ABC against the Virginia Cavaliers. They will then face the Austin Peay Governors on SEC Network+ the next week at a time to be determined. The next week, they will face the Florida Gators on ESPN at night, which ends an era, as written about here.
Josiah-Jordan James returning to Tennessee Basketball
In a huge boost for Rick Barnes’ program, Tennessee Basketball wing Josiah-Jordan James will take advantage of his extra year of eligibility and return to the Vols. With him and Santiago Vescovi back, UT may have the most loaded team in the SEC, as written about here, and for once it’s properly constructed and positioned to play small ball.

History of Tennessee Football with new QB after 10-plus win season
Joe Milton III will be the sixth quarterback in Tennessee Football history to take over after the previous quarterback led his team to a season of 10 wins or more. How have the Vols fared in the past when that happens? Is that good news or bad news for Josh Heupel and co. this year?
