DOES U.T. FEAR THE FACT THAT TENNESSEE HAS STRUCK OIL?

          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).
