On Saturday afternoon at the sauna known as Finley Stadium, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga football team did what college football teams do this time of year. It scrimmaged, the humidity be darned.

I listen to your show on the radio every day on the way home from work. You guys are great -- I would like some more Vandy talk but you and David know your stuff for sure.

OK, this is pretty surreal. It's voting day in Hamilton County; it's the first day of school and our oldest starts first grade (monster deal and apparently he's the only one not freaking out).

Happy Wednesday. It's not as good as Thursday, but better than Tuesday.

Three years worth of two-a-day workouts in his hip pocket, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga redshirt junior defensive tackle Josh Freeman had some wise words Tuesday for true freshman running back Richardre Bagley.

Gang, remember the mailbag. Yes, that one.

The symposium was supposed to focus on soccer concussions, which actually may surpass football concussions in frequency in this country when you include both males and females.

Happy Monday. Hope you enjoyed the weekend — and the summer, since school starts in Hamilton County this week. Crazy indeed.

As the first day of Tennessee's preseason football practices ended Friday evening, senior linebacker A.J. Johnson made the following observations to the assembled media: "I came back [rather than opting for the NFL] to be the best we can be, but we're taking it one day at a time. Like today, we had a great practice today, we'll come back and have one more practice. That's our motto: One day at a time."

We are big believers in more national holidays, and if we can't celebrate International Beer Day, then the terrorists have won. What's our Rushmore of beers? We'll nominate Bud Light and Duff in honor of Homer Simpson.

KNOXVILLE — Just in case you needed another reminder of why life isn't fair, we use today's press ink and newsprint to focus on University of Tennessee senior defensive lineman Jordan Williams.

Gang, the mailbag is on the horizon, and we know you have questions. Fire.

The scene is from the 1978 remake of "Heaven Can Wait." An angel having just placed his soul inside the body of a ruthless industrialist, a well-intentioned Warren Beatty offers a simple solution for all the innocent porpoises the industrialist's tuna canning company is accidentally killing in its nets.

Your UTC Mocs start football practice today. Good times.
