Tennessee football practice: Highlights from open session at Neyland Stadium (video)

KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — No one will ever confuse me with a meteorologist. So perhaps I shouldn’t feel too bad that I raved about the “gorgeous evening” only a few minutes before the skies opened and rain sent people scrambling for cover Saturday night at Neyland Stadium.

The crowd was incredible — even if it was closer to 25,000 than the officially announced 39,000 — and Butch Jones did a nice job of making it fun for the fans as well as useful for his team.

Check out the video for some sights and sounds from the sidelines of Neyland Stadium. Watch in HD settings for best quality.

The Vols return to the practice fields on Sunday at about 2 p.m., although the team will likely move indoors because it’s still raining.
