Consider this my way of saying HNY while simultaneously trolling both Nick Saban and Urban Meyer. In a nice way! (PARODY VIDEO) http://www.rockytopinsider.com/2014/12/30/saban-vs-meyer-video/
What to do when Nick Saban and his Alabama Crimson Tide take on Urban Meyer's Ohio State Buckeyes? Troll both of them with a parody video-in a friendly way.

There have been a million Kiffin articles, but this one looks at fact vs fiction as it pertains to Kiffin vs. karma. Good read on this Hate Bama Friday.

A look at fact versus fiction, Kiffin and karma as the Tennessee Vols prepare to take on the No. 4 Crimson Tide of Alabama. Will justice be served?

If someone had told the average UT fan in 2004 what the next 10 yrs would hold, no one would have believe it. But through all the bad, something unbelievably good has come out of it, and it shapes my answer to the question i pose in the title: http://www.rockytopinsider.com/2014/10/01/moral-victory-must-win/ 
Would another moral victory be okay with Tennessee fans? Or is the Florida game a must win for the Volunteers?

I will be disappointed if we don't win. FL isn't that good of a team. If we lose to them I won't make excuses like I did against Georgia and Oklahoma. Moral will drop pretty far of we can't beat the gators this weekend.

http://www.rockytopinsider.com/2014/08/26/tennessee-football-family-affair/ I hope you'll carve out 15 minutes or so to read this long-form personal essay that takes a look at the future at UT football both by looking back at the past as well as by referring to real-life stories that will stay with me forever. 
JCO looks at the future of Tennessee Football by revisiting the past in a long-form essay sure to appeal to any fan, most notably those who are old school.

Taking the kids to the FSU - NC State game in a couple of weeks with the FSU crowd my wife hangs with.  That will be very, very painful. Wearing a FSU shirt and hoping they get upset.

Last year I broke off the Butch Jones Song. This year, it's "10 and 2?" For any fan whose heart is sometimes at odds with his mind. Particularly those in Vol Nation: http://www.rockytopinsider.com/2014/08/19/10-and-2/
Last year JCO gave us the Butch Jones song. This year, it's 10 and 2, a song for any Vol fan whose heart sometimes trumps his mind.

Whenever there's a coaching change, some signees inevitably ask for their release. Should they automatically get that release? A balanced look at the situation by Dave Hooker: http://www.tnsportsradio.com/2014/04/25/release-release/
Donnie Tyndall has released three UT signees in his first four days on the job. Dave Hooker chimes in on the age old question: to release or not release?

The Ole Miss Fan Crying Video is epic. If baking spoons are accurate barometers, the Ole Miss Miss just might have a better arm than Bo Wallace. That plus 9 other hilarious happenings in the drunken meltdown: http://www.rockytopinsider.com/2014/10/27/ole-miss-fan-crying-video/
Let's turn our attention to Oxford, shall we? The Ole Miss fan crying video is unbelievable on many fronts. We broke down 10 things that really stood out.

I got so sick and tired of reading pieces about the game, so I decided to write one about the fans as it pertained to the game. http://www.rockytopinsider.com/2014/10/06/tennessee-florida-dressed-nowhere-go/
If you got the feeling at the end of the Tennessee Florida game that you were all dressed up with nowhere to go, you weren't alone. JCO's explains why.

A fun bye-week Friday read, if I do say so myself. Hop into the Snark Tank, won't you? http://www.rockytopinsider.com/2014/09/19/10-biggest-football-bloopers-year/
If you can't watch your favorite team play, you may as well poke fun at the shortcomings of all the others. Hence our 10 biggest football bloopers.

VolNation, come check out the new digital media site that Bob Baskerville and I founded. We have three insanely talented and popular writer/reporters and will be delivering our content first via the written word, but will soon be adding podcasted audio and HD video. In fact, we're in the process of designing our digital studios as we speak! Here's our "welcome" post which does a nice job of summing up what we're all about. BE SURE TO CHECK OUT OUR RECRUITING PAGES! 
Welcome to Rocky Top Insider, a new media outlet which will cover the University of Tennessee football/basketball programs across multiple media platforms.
