The Orange and White game is two days away for Tennessee football, and Off The Hook Sports’ Thursday, April 13 podcast included more coverage of spring practice for the Vols leading up to it with a notable guest. Caleb Calhoun compared skill players and also discussed UT’s season ticket sales. In the last block, he discussed the new Big Ten commissioner.
