When the sun rose Friday, it found Ole Miss facing the NCAA Committee on Infractions, and Phil Fulmer was headed back to Tennessee to run the football program.

2017-18 Basketball Preview: A promising script gets a last-minute rewrite

Comments Off on 2017-18 Basketball Preview: A promising script gets a last-minute rewrite

By Chris DePew TideFans.com staff Nov. 8, 2017 The closer Alabama basketball gets to tipping off the season, the less clear it is what kind of team Avery Johnson will be able to put on the floor. Expectations have been soaring in Tuscaloosa ever since Johnson signed a Top 5 recruiting class last fall. But […]

Tennessee wrap-up: Tide started slow, but hapless Vols offered no resistance afterward

Tennessee wrap-up: Tide started slow, but hapless Vols offered no resistance afterward

labama proved that ingesting rat poison leads to flat and sloppy play, especially with a first quarter Saturday that ever-so-briefly left in doubt whether the Crimson Tide would win at all. But after an Irv Smith fumble through the end zone was overturned thanks to a timely penalty from Tennessee’s Jonathan Kongbo, Alabama seemed to ignite. More importantly, Tennessee visibly deflated after having to give back its turnover, and a team on the verge of quitting doesn’t need much to push it over the edge. Alabama took full advantage, scored again before the half was out, and never looked back in the second half.

Tennessee preview: It’s been a rocky year for UT, and not likely to get better this week

Somewhere this week, there’s a Tennessee fan wondering how Alabama is still in business – and also wondering why his own team barely is.

One of the perhaps-apocryphal stories of Alabama’s long walk through the woods circa 1993-2007 was that then-Tennessee head coach Phil Fulmer told former Alabama RB Santonio Beard that Alabama “would be out of business in two years.”

Projected Depth Chart for Alabama vs. Tennessee

This is not an official University of Alabama document. The depth chart is taken from individual practice and game observations, and is color-coded.

Tennessee 59, Alabama 54: Tide rides on autopilot straight into the ditch

Comments Off on Tennessee 59, Alabama 54: Tide rides on autopilot straight into the ditch

By Chris DePew TideFans.com staff March 4, 2017 A hot-shooting first half could only paper over foul trouble and careless ball handling for so long, as Alabama wilted in the second half to give away a 16-point lead in a 59-54 loss at Tennessee. What did we learn today?: The Crimson Tide was a victim […]

Tennessee wrap-up: Thinned-out Vol team no match for the Tide machine

Alabama smacked Tennessee around 49-10 in Knoxville on Saturday in a game that could have been far worse if Jalen Hurts hadn’t made two poor decisions under pressure that resulted in what was probably either a 10- or 14-point swing. As is, the beatdown was bad enough. A Tennessee program that has clearly held Alabama up as a measuring stick instead got caned by that same stick. The Volunteers’ patented second-half comeback never came, and Alabama used the second half only to pad its own lead – Alabama outscored Tennessee 28-3 after halftime – and turn the last few minutes of the game into a second-team scrimmage.

UT preview: If pressure makes perfect, Vols won’t hit many wrong notes

There is no question which team is coming into this game more charged up. It’s Tennessee, and had the Volunteers not lost in agonizing fashion to Texas A&M in overtime last week, the Vols might have come into this game so amped-up that you could have plugged the entire eastern seaboard into Neyland Stadium and it would have stayed lit for a month.
