The Tennessee Volunteers NCAA Division 1 football team is part of the Southeastern Conference. They have a very rich history ever since playing their first season in 1891. They have a very high winning percentage, especially considering that only eight other teams can boast of a higher percentage. After a short time being coached by Lane Kiffin, the team is now under the leadership of Derek Dooley. Their mascot is Smokey, a bluetick hound. They have have both a live one and a costumed person. It came to be in 1953 after the students voted and selected it, based on the fact that a bluetick hound is a coonhound that hails from Tennessee.



The reason the team is called the Volunteers is because of the fact that Tennessee is the Volunteer State ever since the role that volunteer soldiers played in the War of 1812. Of course, considering they have won six national titles, three of which were under the leadership of Robert Neyland, it's hard to imagine them as anything else. They have played in a total of 49 bowl games, and have one over half of them at 26. Though their most recent bowl was a loss to Virginia Tech at the Chick-fil-A Bowl, they are never a team that gives up.

However, while they are always strong contendors in the college football arena, 2010 is proving to be quite challenging. Currently, no quarterback has been decided on, though there are some options, including a freshman named Tyler Bray and a transfer from a junior college named Matt Simms. Though it is still being decided on who will lead the team, one thing is true about the Volunteers, and that is the fact that they know how to overcome adversity and challenges.

Considering the winning history and skill that the Volunteers have always and continue to exude, 2010 may be a challenge but if the team comes together they will beat the odds. If anything, the lack of a clear quarterback will cause the Volunteers to realize that unexpected challenges are always ahead, but it is possible to beat them with hard work.
