Tide roll over Vols

Tennessee is now 2 - 5 on the season with a record of 0 - 4 in the SEC

Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy tore Tennessee's secondary apart. He completed 21 of 32 for 264 yards, mostly to Julio Jones, who set an Alabama single-game record with 221 yards on 12 catches.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Trent Richardson's 65-yard touchdown run and 5-yard touchdown reception were part of 28 unanswered second-half points as No. 7 Alabama beat Tennessee 41-10 on Saturday night.

Greg McElroy completed 21 of 32 for 264 yards, mostly to Julio Jones, who set an Alabama single-game record with 221 yards on 12 catches.

Alabama came out of halftime with only a 13-10 lead after a sluggish first half, but wasted no time in the third quarter. The Tide got three straight first downs on its opening drive before Mark Ingram scored on a 1-yard run.

Richardson finished with 119 yards on 12 carries, and the Crimson Tide got its fourth straight win over Tennessee for the first time since 1992.

    This loss is just another example of the decline of the UT mens athletic program. The problem can only be fixed starting at top. I believe an overhaul of the department is in order. I've seen a decline in the program from the time Mike Hamilton was hired. Fix the problem and the rest will fix it's self.
