IS SIXTH TIME THE CHARM? In his first five years of college football C.J. Leak suffered an awful knee injury (vs. Clemson in 2000), an awful humiliation (vs. Georgia in 2002) and an awful disappointment (when his brother Chris picked Florida over UT). He's hoping his fortunes will move from awful to awesome in Year 6. by Randy Moore

CLAUSEN, PART II: After four years of Casey Clausen, Tennessee may have another Clausen at quarterback in 2004. Younger brother Rick isn't as tall, as talented or as experienced but he's a heady young man whose intelligence and savvy may enable him to win the starting job at Tennessee's most precarious position. by Randy Moore

THE SCHAEFFER/AINGE DEBATE: Choosing between Erik Ainge and Brent Schaeffer is like choosing between Peyton Manning and Michael Vick. Each freshman brings something different -- and special -- to the table. This engaging story is likely to change the way you view Tennessee's ongoing quarterback sweepstakes. by Jeffery Stewart

SIBLING REVELRY: Ellix Wilson is bigger and stronger than older brother Cedrick. He also plays defense, rather than offense. But, like his sibling, Ellix figures to be on the field as a true freshman due to Tennessee's desperate need for for help at the safety positions. by Jeffery Stewart

MR. ELECTRIC: Tennessee's lackluster offensive play the past two seasons underscored the need for a game-breaking rusher. Meet LaMarcus Coker, an early commitment who projects to be a high-voltage Vol and -- just maybe -- the answer to Tennessee's ground-game woes. by Jeffery Stewart

ALL-DECADE TEAMS: Who was the best linebacker of the 1960s -- Steve Kiner, Jack Reynolds or Jackie Walker? Who was the best punt returner of the 1970s -- Bobby Majors or Eddie Brown? Who was the best receiver of the 1980s -- Anthony Hancock, Willie Gault, Tim McGee or Thomas Woods? Who was the best running back of the 1990s -- Charlie Garner, Jamal Lewis or Travis Henry? Here's an article sure to inspire memories ... and heated debate. by Randy Moore

OFFENSE/DEFENSE PREVIEWS: Quarterback isn't the only question mark on Tennessee's offense, where the Vols must replace four-year starting center Scott Wells, fullback Troy Fleming and guard Anthony Herrera. There are also voids in the secondary, where three starters from 2003 are gone. For an insightful look at who'll fill the holes and how they'll fare, check out our in-depth analysis. by Randy Moore

OPPONENT PROFILES: Is there a quarterback controversy brewing at South Carolina? Can Chris Leak carry Florida to the Promised Land? Will Georgia's Mark Richt ever beat the Gators? Will Kentucky have a passing attack without Jared Lorenzen, Derek Abney and Tommy Cook? How much does the return of 21 starters from 2003 help Vanderbilt? Here's the scoop on all of Tennessee's opponents. by Randy Moore
