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. So far the Oilers haven't affected UT's bottom line ... but to be on the safe side the Vols are upgrading their nonconference schedule and watching how Florida does business" ("SportsCenter," ESPN, 10/22).
