Are the Vols ready for the "Mighty Mallards?"

It's Duck hunting season for UT as the Vols welcome Top-10 Oregon to Neyland Stadium

He's been Dooley noted, Dooley quoted and now Dooley served as in a lawsuit, by the father of former Vols running back Bryce Brown. I guess if your football coach is going to be sued, it's a good thing he's also a lawyer. The only counsel the coach is interested in right now is making sure his clients, excuse me, players are well versed in hunting Duck. After all is it Duck season, or is it Wabbitt season?  We can ask Elmer or defer to the lovable insurance peddling TV commercial star.

It actually has been Duck week here in Knoxville leading up to the first big trial for a Vols advocate desperate to deliver a winning verdict. Case briefs are in and witnesses have been questioned. All that's left is to deliver a successful opening and closing statement. The jury is still very much out on this season and tonight's game, which the Vols enter as nearly two touchdown underdogs.

Sounds more like the Ducks are doing the hunting and the Vols are an endangered species. Nonetheless, Tennessee football isn't close to being extinct yet and can certainly begin it's migration from mediocrity by turning Oregon into Duck a la Big Orange Saturday night!
