- David Cutcliffe is still being reported as the next head coach at Duke. The News-Sentinel's story from a few hours ago had Cutcliffe denying the morning that he had been offered the job, but that doesn't mean he won't be or that he isn't going, as ESPN is reporting.
- Those who want Trooper Taylor to be the Vols' next offensive coordinator if Cutcliffe goes to Duke are now holding their breath, as Taylor is interviewing for the same position at Baylor. In the Sentinel's story Fulmer said the search for UT's next offensive coordinator would be extensive and his top priority...would Taylor be a viable candidate?
- Arian Foster, Anthony Parker, Jerod Mayo and Britton Colquitt have failed NFL advisory papers. This doesn't mean that they're going pro, this is just to get an idea of where they'd fall in the Draft. The Sentinel also reports that Mayo is "undecided" while Parker says he'll likely stay. Really, off the cuff, if Parker thinks he'll stay, Mayo is the only real concern here. Even if Foster unexpectedly jumped, we've got other horses in the stable. And excuse me if I don't lose sleep over the punter. I'm just saying.
- Duke Crews is out indefinitely with a heart condition. Something on an EKG report has led team doctors to conduct further testing and hold Crews out until they get the situation resolved, which is being guarded for his privacy. Bruce Pearl and the doctors seemed both glad that they saw the problem when they did, and optimistic that Crews will eventually return. The Vols play Western Kentucky in Nashville tomorrow night at 9:30 on ESPNU.
