For the Record: Week 8

For the record…

The last two games saw the Vols play well in the first half but get beaten senseless in the second by the Number One LSU Tigers and the Number Two Alabama Crimson Tide. This week provides opportunity to marginalize those losses as inevitable outcomes against the two best teams in the land and provide a springboard to a decent season with a ‘signature win.’ Yes, a win over South Carolina, at home, would count as a signature win.

Thus, the theme of this week’s For the Record is what everybody has – a signature.


"You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough."

A particular shot or way of moving the ball can be a player’s personal signature, but efficiency of performance is what wins the game for the team. – Pat Riley

Every top player has his own style, just as every painter has his own personal signature. – Vladimir Kramnik

I think I have already signed some scrap of paper for every man, woman, and child in the United States. What do they do with all those scraps of paper with my signature on it? – Vida Blue

A man’s kiss is his signature. – Mae West
