"It's the first day that we introduced Tennessee to the team. They got their first look at a lot of things and its a good thing we started today."

"Offensively the coordinator is the same so I think we'll see a lot of similar things to what we saw on last year's tape."

"Defensively we might not see anything we saw except person ell. Try to make a judgement on personnel - what they do and don't do. With all new coaches on defense the whole scheme is gonna be different."

"All indications are [that Tennessee is going to 3-4] what they are going to do. They've talked about it, some of their players have said it - so we'll see when we get there."

"Tomorrow we are going to take off and do a lot of talking about personnel and other things so we'll make some decisions going forward."
