“No First Downs?”

Could it happen again, much the way it happened on Sept. 27, 1958, in the season opener against Auburn at Legion field in Birmingham. The Vols lost 13-0 and failed to record a single first down. That hasn’t to anyone since that anybody can remember.

There was really enough to worry abut, e.g., the 35-point betting line and whether or not the Vols might score. Now we find ourselves worrying about not making a first down.

How the mighty have fallen.

Where do we go from here?
