How much do Vol fans care about Saturday’s matchup between Tennessee Football and the Georgia Bulldogs. Caleb Calhoun and Dave Hooker discuss that and the basketball Vols with Jimmy Hyams on Off the Hook Sports’ Wednesday, Nov. 15 podcast. The College Football Playoff and recent Pac-12 lawsuit also warranted coverage.
Are fans bailing on Tennessee Football vs. Georgia?
Based on recent internet marketplaces, Tennessee Football fans are reportedly selling their tickets for Saturday’s game against the Georgia Bulldogs in droves. With the SEC East out of play, is this a bad move on Rocky Top? Do fans owe it to the Vols and Josh Heupel to still support this team as it closes out the season? Jimmy Hyams joins to discuss.
Should Tennessee Football hire more analysts?
Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey was recently fired. Should Tennessee Football head coach Josh Heupel bring him in as an offensive analyst? Why doesn’t Heupel go the route of Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide by hiring more analysts to discuss the Vols’ quarterback situation and the play of their offense overall?
Start to basketball season
Men’s Tennessee Basketball dominated the Wofford Terriers Tuesday night, but the Lady Vols needed overtime to beat the Memphis Tigers at home Monday after losing to the Florida State Seminoles last week on the road. What stands out more? Rick Barnes’ team dominating early or Kellie Harper’s team struggling at the moment?
Key players for Tennessee Football vs. Georgia
Does Tennessee Football have a realistic chance of upsetting the Georgia Bulldogs Saturday? That will depend on which UGA team shows up. However, regardless of what happens, the Vols will need certain players to step up and play their best game, and there are certain Dawgs that they have to keep in check. Who are those players?
College Football Playoff rankings
Another round of the College Football Playoff rankings came out Tuesday night, and Georgia moved up to No. 1 while Tennessee Football only fell to No. 18. Presumably, that would mean the Vols have a realistic shot at the playoff if it were already at 12 teams. Coming off a 36-7 loss to the Missouri Tigers, does that hurt the case for an expanded CFP?
Oregon State, Washington State win Pac-12 lawsuit
The Oregon State Beavers and Washington State Huskies, the only two teams set to remain in the Pac-12 after this year, just won a lawsuit that grants them total control over the workings of the conference this year. It will be appealed, but for now, they can control all revenue. What does that mean about the future of conference realignment?
