KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — The buzzword of the week for Butch Jones and his team was “1-0” and the Vols finished with that mark after beating Kentucky on Saturday night in Lexington.
For all the talk of positive momentum after the win, someone quite sensibly asked, “What if Tennessee had lost?” The only positive momentum then would be the force with which this season was consigned to the trash basket.
Jones, true to style, said he plan for everything, including that contingency. Fortunately, it won’t be necessary.
The seniors can leave on a positive note after an otherwise bleak four- or five-year stretch, and Jones and his staff can turn their attention completely to recruiting.

Thanks for following me this year. I’m going to take the next nine months off and see you in August.
Just kidding! We’ll have tons of content between now and spring practice, including a lot of interesting recruiting stuff, some very early position previews and anything else that I have time for. If you have any questions or ideas, let me know.
For now, check out the video montage from last night above, some video interviews below, as well as some photos from before and after the game. Watch the video in your highest HD settings for best results.
