Is there any team in the country that benefits more from a more doable schedule than the Tennessee Volunteers? Not that their SEC schedule is forgiving, but this year they get Miss St. and Mizzou instead of LSU and Alabama.

#2 Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Tennessee Volunteers: Brutally Honest Game Preview

You can argue that any of these three teams (LSU Tigers, Oklahoma Sooners and Alabama Crimson Tide) are the true kings of college football. Each of them have a legit case to be #1.

By Paul M. Banks

So this is why those SEC always teams end up with the biggest, fastest and strongest recruits. A great quote from a New York Times article this week reports on the University of Tennessee’s student hostess program, and the way members of the school’s Orange Pride group treat potential recruits when they visit the Knoxville campus.

Keith Easterwood, a veteran summer basketball coach, said that on a visit last year with his son, a football recruit, he had to ask a hostess to stop brushing her breasts against both him and his son.
