While disrespect continues for Tennessee Football, recruiting concerns also persist for the Vols. Off The Hook Sports’ Thursday, May 25 podcast features Caleb Calhoun and Dave Hooker discussing both. They also talk about early gambling lines to take advantage of, the new ACC revenue sharing method and UT’s season-opening line. Josh Ward joins.
