TK’s Report on a Sluggish Saturday Scrimmage
On Saturday afternoon the mercurial TK (author of one of the best posts ever on this site) attended Saturday’s Orange and White Game with DW. TK and DW are two of the Vols in the Fall—we all went to UT together; lived in the Andy Holt dorm across the street from the Aquatic Center. Simpler days. But, days that were no less fanatical as today about the Big Orange. We lived (and died) through the decline of the Vols under Bill Battle as well as the beginning of a new era in Tennessee football when Johnny came marching home. Those were some trying times—it took a very long time for the Vols to crawl out from a 4-and-7 season to be competitive, and then to win an SEC championship again. Although not the same in the particulars, I feel we’re in a similar situation—soon to sink to the bottom of another cycle.
To give us a glimpse of what the near future looks like, I’ll turn it over to TK for his report on Saturday’s scrimmage from the Home of the Vols, Neyland Stadium.
