KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Perhaps because he's an excellent student, maybe because he's a quarterback, but definitely because he's a coach's son, Ryan Cubit never says anything out of turn. With careful cadence and unmistakable blandness, he always says what he's supposed to. But when asked about coach Greg Schiano's choice of locker room music this week, Cubit didn't consider first and out came a moment of candor. "I'm not going to lie," he said. "It's pretty annoying.

As if blaring simulated crowd noise during practice wasn't bad enough, Schiano kept "Rocky Top," Tennessee's fight song, pumped through the practice-field speakers and into the dressing room all week.

Plot: After last weeks collapse against Florida, Tennessee cant take anything for granted against any team. Rutgers is a name that lives in Big Orange infamy after the Scarlet Knights pulled off a stunning 13-7 upset in 1979 at Neyland Stadium, and playing a Big East schedule that annually includes the likes of Syracuse, Virginia Tech and Miami means the men from Piscataway, N.J. aren't likely to be intimidated.
