SEC 2009 // Tennessee Volunteers

Tennessee Hopes Change Brings Changes (6.15.09)
When Tennessee went 5-6 in 2005, the folks in Knoxville made changes within the assistant coaching ranks and hoped for the best. While Tennessee was on its way to 5-7 in 2008, the folks in Knoxville hit the reset button.

Lane Kiffin Was Risky, Not a Bad, Hire (6.15.09)
I don't mean to say that he has no plan; I doubt USC, Oakland, or Tennessee would have hired him if he operated without one. I just don't think it is a meticulous, detail-oriented plan as I've read that Dan Mullen has though.

Tennessee's Timetable (6.16.09)
An overview of each of the Tennessee Volunteers' games this season.

The Tennessee Coaches Meet (6.16.09)
"Okay, let's talk about preparations for the upcoming season."

The Tennessee Team (6.17.09)

The Great Lane Kiffin Debate (6.17.09)

Anyone choosing a winning record is going out a little on a limb here, given the quarterback situation. So out there I go.

What to Make of Lane Kiffin? (6.19.09)
Given the way I've gleefully picked up on every gaffe and secondary violation Boy Wonder has made -- and given him the nickname Boy Wonder to begin with -- you could easily draw the conclusion that I automatically think Kiffin was a bad hire. I've come to the same conclusion that a lot of level heads around the blogosphere have come: There's really no way to tell right now.
