A busy day ahead of the weekend doesn’t just involve Tennessee football, but it leads off with the Vols. Caleb Calhoun and Dave Hooker discuss both UT quarterbacks making a top 10 list, a sex scandal involving the Auburn Tigers, the potential for NCAA athletes to unionize and Ja Morant. Fred White joins.
Both Tennessee Football QBs listed among those with biggest arms
An article by Brad Crawford of 247Sports listed Tennessee football quarterbacks Nico Iamaleava and Joe Milton III as having the No. 9 ranked and No. 1 ranked biggest arms in the nation for 2023. What does that say about the Vols’ potential passing attack with Josh Heupel still at the helm heading into the year?
What to make of Auburn sex scandal
The Auburn Tigers released a statement on the leak of a video involving running back Jarquez Hunter. According to reports, the video appears to show Hunter engaging in sexual activity. It’s still not exactly clear who the culprit and who the victim is in this situation, but somebody did not want this out there. How serious is an issue like this?
Former Tennessee Football champion Fred White joins
Former Tennessee football defensive back Fred White joins the show to discuss the ongoing Celebrate ’98 series Off The Hook Sports is putting on. He also discusses the state of the Vols today and looks back on the way things were during his tenure on Rocky Top from 1995 to 1999.
NCAA athletes take step towards unionizing
The National Labor Relations Board filed a lawsuit against the USC Trojans, Pac-12 and NCAA Thursday on the premise that athletes at the school be classified as employees, not student athletes. It will take years for this matter to get resolved in court, but what would happen if NCAA athletes were to unionize?
Ja Morant saga
Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant is in trouble after flashing a gun on Instagram for the second time in just over two months. However, he didn’t break any laws. Are sports leagues at the college and pro level going overboard with personal conduct policies? Has this affected UT in the past?
