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).
