Episode 144: Schofield pushes Vols past No. 1 Gonzaga

12/10/2018
More
GoVols247's Wes Rucker (from Fort Rucker Studio) and Grant Ramey (from Denver International Airport) conversed as if in the same room thanks to the miracle of Al Gore’s Internets, and there was plenty to discuss after Tennessee’s come-from-behind, 76-73 win over top-ranked Gonzaga in the Jerry Colangelo Classic at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix. A performance for the ages from senior wing Admiral Schofield propelled Tennessee back from the brink against the Zags. With junior guard...

More
GoVols247's Wes Rucker (from Fort Rucker Studio) and Grant Ramey (from GoVols247’s Blount County Satellite Office) conversed as if in the same room thanks to the miracle of Al Gore’s Internets, and there was plenty of Tennessee basketball to break down heading into Sunday’s game between the seventh-ranked Vols and top-ranked Gonzaga Bulldogs in Phoenix. Tennessee lost a golden opportunity in an overtime setback against second-ranked Kansas two weeks ago in New York, but the Vols get a quick...

Episode 142: Vols OC search continues

12/5/2018
More
GoVols247's Wes Rucker, Patrick Brown and Ryan Callahan went into Fort Rucker Studio to break down the latest on two pressing issues — the search for a new offensive coordinator, and all things recruiting — for the Tennessee football program. It’s now been a week-and-a-half since Tennessee offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tyson Helton left to become the head coach at Western Kentucky, and Pruitt is still going through the process of finding a replacement. He’s not moving as...

Episode 141: Vols find QB, still searching for OC

11/30/2018
More
GoVols247's Wes Rucker, Patrick Brown and Ryan Callahan went into Fort Rucker Studio to break down a hectic week full of highs and lows for Jeremy Pruitt's rebuilding Tennessee football program. Just days after ending their regular season with a tough loss at in-state rival Vanderbilt that removed them from bowl contention and learning that offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tyson Helton, Pruitt changed the narrative by securing a commitment from Atlanta-area native Harrison...

Episode 140: Vols in win-or-no-bowl mode

11/23/2018
More
GoVols247's Wes Rucker went into Fort Rucker Studio solo this week — which made sense, given the staff’s location all over the country during this holiday week — but nonetheless served as conduit to anything and everything related to this season’s crucial Vols-Dores game at Vanderbilt Stadium. A brief intro on all things Vols football and hoops set the stage for an episode featuring interviews of three pertinent Vols — first-year head coach Jeremy Pruitt snd senior defensive linemen Shy...

Episode 139: No. 5 Vols eyeing big week in Big Apple

11/17/2018
More
GoVols247's Wes Rucker and Grant Ramey went into Fort Rucker Studio to break down the fifth-ranked Tennessee basketball team through its first three game and its big week coming up in New York. The Vols improved to 3-0 with an ugly-but-comfortable, 66-53 win over Georgia Tech earlier this week in Knoxville, but toughest tests are waiting for the Vols, starting with next week's NIT Season Tip-Off in Brooklyn's Barclays Center. Tennessee will face Louisville late Wednesday afternoon, and a...

Episode 138: Pruitt era gaining momentum

11/16/2018
More
GoVols247's Wes Rucker, Patrick Brown and Ryan Callahan went into Fort Rucker Studio to break down a big win for the rebuilding Tennessee football program and the opportunity now in front of the Vols as a result. Tennessee's 24-7 upset win over then-11th-ranked Kentucky wasn't just the Vols' second win over a ranked opponent this season. It was a win that gave Tennessee a much greater chance of securing bowl-eligibility — something many didn't expect from first-year head coach Jeremy...

Episode 137: No such thing as an ugly win ... right?

11/9/2018
More
GoVols247's Wes Rucker and Patrick Brown went into Fort Rucker Studio to break down Tennessee's 14-3 win over Charlotte and look forward to the Vols' annual Battle for the Beer Barrel showdown with 12th-ranked Kentucky on Saturday at Neyland Stadium. There’s no way to call the Vols’ win against Charlotte a beautiful win, but perhaps only because there’s no such thing as an ugly win. A win’s a win, and Tennessee hasn’t won enough games the past two seasons to complain too much about a win,...

Episode 136: Vols' margin for error shrinking

11/2/2018
More
Looking for an honest discussion on the impact of Tennessee’s disappointing loss at South Carolina, and where the Vols go from here? There's a GoVols247 Podcast for that. GoVols247's Wes Rucker, Patrick Brown and Ryan Callahan went into Fort Rucker Studio to break down Tennessee's tough, 27-24 loss to the Gamecocks last weekend at Williams-Brice Stadium, and the impact that loss could have on the Vols’ chances to secure bowl-eligibility under first-year head coach Jeremy Pruitt — something...

Episode 135: Vols hope to regain momentum on road

10/26/2018
More
GoVols247's Wes Rucker and Patrick Brown went into Fort Rucker Studio to break down Tennessee's big road game at South Carolina on Saturday at Williams-Brice Stadium. Tennessee picked up serious momentum two weeks ago with its shocking upset win at then-21st-ranked Auburn, and it remains to be seen how much of that momentum the Vols lost in last week's lopsided setback against Third Saturday in October rival Alabama. That loss looks bad in a vacuum, but it doesn't look terrible when you...

Episode 134: Trey Smith 'indefinitely' sidelined again

10/25/2018
More
GoVols247's Wes Rucker and Patrick Brown went into Fort Rucker Studio to break down some tough news for arguably Tennessee's best football player. Tennessee confirmed Thursday that star sophomore offensive lineman Trey Smith would again be sidelined "indefinitely" after doctors discovered Wednesday that blood clots had returned in his lungs. Smith was a touted five-star prospect who enrolled at Tennessee in Summer 2017 with outrageous expectations, and he met those expectations by emerging...

Episode 133: Vols improve SEC winning streak to one

10/19/2018

GoVols247's Wes Rucker, Patrick Brown and Ryan Callahan went into Fort Rucker Studio to break down Tennessee's win — yes, win — at then-21st-ranked Auburn last weekend and discuss the Vols' upcoming showdown with top-ranked Alabama at Neyland Stadium. An program-record, 11-game SEC losing streak was stopped before reaching the dirty-dozen level, and Jeremy Pruitt became the fastest coach in SEC history to win a road game against a ranked team. It was just his sixth game on the sideline with...

Episode 132: Vols hoping to avoid Dirty Dozen

10/11/2018
More
GoVols247's Wes Rucker, Patrick Brown and Grant Ramey went into Fort Rucker Studio to break down the state of Tennessee football heading into Saturday's game at 21st-ranked Auburn. Tennessee had an open date after its Sept. 29 loss at second-ranked Georgia, giving the Vols an extra week of work to sort of some of their own issues and get a head start on Auburn's unique offense — something that SEC West teams have gotten used to seeing in recent years, and something Tennessee's current staff...

Episode 131: Vols hoops hits the (practice) court

10/5/2018
More
GoVols247's Wes Rucker and Grant Ramey went into Fort Rucker Studio to break down anything and everything from Tennessee basketball media day. Rick Barnes' reigning-SEC-champion Vols have sky-high expectations heading into the season, and understandably so, given the amount of experience and firepower on their roster. The Vols snuck up on the college basketball world last season, but that won't be the case now. They've been in the top-10 nationally in practically every preseason projection...

Episode 130: Bye-week reassessment of Pruitt Year One

10/3/2018
More
GoVols247's Wes Rucker, Ryan Callahan and Patrick Brown went into Fort Rucker Studio to break down Tennessee's loss at second-ranked Georgia over the weekend and look forward to things we can expect from the Vols following this week's open date. A loss is a loss, and Tennessee's loss at Georgia was its third setback of the season by exactly 26 points, but the Vols looked better against the Bulldogs than they had in losses to West Virginia and Florida. Tennessee got a terrible break in the...

Episode 137: To the Pit of Misery

9/28/2018
More
GoVols247's Wes Rucker, Ryan Callahan and Patrick Brown went into Fort Rucker Studio to break down Tennessee's SEC-opening, 47-20 loss to Florida and the Vols' Saturday trip to Georgia for a game against the second-ranked Bulldogs. Florida, another proud program in rebuilding mode, was considered one of the more winnable games on this season's SEC schedule, but ... welp. The Vols turned the ball over six times and lost a game that probably will make it tough for Tennessee to secure...

Episode 136: Vols. Gators. SEC play is here.

9/21/2018
More
GoVols247's Wes Rucker, Ryan Callahan and Patrick Brown went into Fort Rucker Studio to break down Tennessee's annual SEC opener against Eastern Division nemesis Florida. This isn't a classic Tennessee-Florida game on paper, but it's nonetheless an intriguing game, and an important game for first-year head coaches Jeremy Pruitt and Dan Mullen. A rivalry win is always nice, and in this case, it will be a win that could go a long way toward determining postseason eligibility. Both the Vols...

Episode 135: Vols add five-star point guard

9/19/2018

GoVols247's Wes Rucker and Grant Ramey went into Fort Rucker Studio to break down a huge development for the Tennessee basketball program. Five-star point guard prospect Josiah James stunned the hoops world Wednesday morning by committing to Tennessee. The nation's No. 14 overall prospect in the 2019 industry-generated 247Sports Composite is a Michigan State legacy from Charleston, S.C., but he turned down Michigan State, Duke and practically every other program in the country and chose...

Episode 134: Between The Blowouts

9/14/2018
More
GoVols247's Wes Rucker, Patrick Brown and Ryan Callahan went into Fort Rucker Studio to break down Tennessee's blowout win over East Tennessee and look forward to ... well ... a likely blowout win over UTEP. Tennessee hoped to use the ETSU/UTEP portion of the schedule as a time to take mistakes from the season-opening game against West Virginia and clean them up before the SEC opener against longtime Eastern Division rival Florida. So far, so good on that front. The Vols took care of...

GoVols247's Wes Rucker, Patrick Brown and Ryan Callahan went into Fort Rucker Studio to break down the good, the bad, the ugly and the fugly from Tennessee's season-opening, 40-14 loss to then-17th-ranked West Virginia in Charlotte. As much as everyone in and around the Tennessee program would love to flush that season-opening cow pie and forget it forever, the fact is the Vols play East Tennessee State and UTEP the next two Saturdays, so it'll be a few weeks before they face another...
