Peyton Manning has such a comical litany of injuries that it’s amazing he was playing NFL football into 2015. He has a surgically taped-up neck, a problem with his throwing shoulder, maybe-maybe-not broken ribs, a partially torn plantar fascia (apparently, this is worse than a full tear), not to mention the torn…
Referee Ken “Wrong-Way” Williamson has HAD it with Dino Babers, so much so that he had this to say to the BGSU head coach following a penalty against the Falcons:
Several months after Tennessee suddenly announced it was almost completely doing away with the Lady Vols nickname, an email released by the university gives some insight into why many alumni had no idea it was even being considered. It’s because Nike’s advice to Tennessee was to shut up.
Wednesday, I asked those of you in Tennessee to submit a public records request on behalf of Deadspin because ours had been denied due to a chilling and arbitrary law limiting records requests to Tennessee residents only. I wanted copies of Tennessee's communication with Nike, because the university's controversial…
The University of Tennessee recently decided to do away with calling nearly all its women's sports teams Lady Vols, a move that came at about the same time the university announced switching from Adidas to Nike for athletic apparel. Now, they are all Volunteers who will use the Power T logo—except for the women's…
Broken bodies everywhere.
Senior All-SEC linebacker A.J. Johnson and sophomore defensive back Michael Williams are under investigation by Knoxville police for two alleged sexual assaults that happened after this weekend's home game against Kentucky, according to the Tennessean.
This is not debatable.
David Cobb from the Knoxville News Sentinel witnessed an Ole Miss fan wander into Tennessee quarterback Justin Worley's presser after the Vols' 34-3 loss. The Rebels fan even asked something that bore the shape of a question.
New Tennessee track coach Beth Alford-Sullivan cut six women from her team in September, just a month after proudly announcing her predecessor's entire recruiting class would arrive intact.
Lil Jon and Tennessee are pretty good friends lately. That means a lot of new fans of the king of crunk in Vols country, where things like this are happening. There's a lot going on here, and none of it's good.
If you'd gotten caught up in Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott shredding Texas A&M, or Ohio State's flogging of Maryland, please take a moment to be aware of those less fortunate. Many people have to watch Florida vs. Tennessee. Here's how that's going:
Tennessee did a respectable job of hanging with Georgia today, before succumbing in a 35-32 defeat. Bulldogs running back Todd Gurley, however, could hardly be contained. In addition to one flying-over-the-line touchdown, Gurley added this masterpiece to his Heisman candidacy, breaking multiple tackles in the…
A Tennessee man was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a child and aggravated child abuse and neglect for allegedly making his 15-year-old son play a drinking game with him as they watched the Volunteers' game against Oklahoma Saturday.
North Carolina, Tennessee, and Clemson have heavily recruited defensive lineman prospect Shy Tuttle, but the Volunteers tried to edge out the competition with a fake magazine cover featuring Beyoncé and Tuttle hanging out. Oldest trick in the book.
Cuonzo Martin took the Cal job today, after an up-and-down three years with Tennessee that saw his job security deteriorate even as he led the Volunteers to a Sweet 16 appearance. His players seem sorry to see him go, but don't sound shocked that he left.
Last night against Michigan, Tennessee came all the way back from a 15-point deficit with 10 minutes left to be in a position to get jobbed in the final seconds. With 10 seconds left in the game, Tennessee trailed Michigan by only one, 72-71. That's when the Volunteers put the ball in Jarnell Stokes's hands for the…
One of the quirks of college basketball is that we get to see only a brief audition of each team before the NCAA tournament begins. By the time the NBA playoffs start, there are 82 games' worth of data on each team, and each of those consists of 48 minutes. At the college level, teams entering the tournament have…
