DOES U.T. FEAR THE FACT THAT TENNESSEE HAS STRUCK OIL?
Published October 23, 1997
ESPN's Gene Wojciechowski reports that "only one team truly scares [the Univ. of] Tennessee, and it isn't Florida. It's the NFL's Tennessee Oilers, a marketing nightmare this year but a future threat to the Vols' near-statewide football monopoly.
