THE ENIGMATIC MR. RIGGS: Gerald Riggs, Jr., spent more time in Phil Fulmer's doghouse than in Tennessee's backfield during his first two years on The Hill. Then a series of random events combined to turn a perennial enigma into a star. Here's his take on what happened ... and why. by Randy Moore

VOLS GO WEST TO FIND EAST: The odds against finding two quality linemen on the same high school team are pretty imposing. But Tennessee's coaches think they beat those odds last winter, plucking 300-pounders Malcom Rawls and Dan Williams off Memphis East's roster. by Jeffery Stewart

SALVAGE JOB AT SAFETY: Voted Tennessee's Most Improved Defensive Player in the spring of 2003, Antwan Stewart seemed to have a brilliant future ahead of him. One torn ACL later, he is looking to save a once-promising career -- and a shaky UT secondary -- with a big junior season. by Randy Moore

LIGON's LAST STOP? After bouncing from defensive end to defensive tackle to tight end to guard, David Ligon probably suffered from motion sickness. When Richie Gandy torn an ACL in March, Ligon moved again -- to center -- but this time he appears to have found a home. by Randy Moore

GETTING PHYSICAL WITH PHYSICS: Jason Hall says football is all about physics and leverage, and he should know. After backing up senior defensive ends each of the past two seasons, he's looking to leverage his way into the starting lineup with top-notch technique and superior savvy. by Randy Moore

GREAT AMERICAN SUCCESS STORY: David Yancey came to Tennessee as a walk-on cornerback. Two years later, he's a scholarship tailback with a chance to play a significant role for the 2005 Vols. Don't miss this inspiring story about a quality young man who overcame serious obstacles. by Randy Moore

BUSTING YOUR BUTT FOR THE BIG ORANGE: They arrive with no fanfare, no press clippings and no scholarship. They bust their butts in hopes of getting a coach's attention but almost never get to play on Saturday. If you think the life of a walk-on is easy, here's a peak into their reality. by Randy Moore


• Profiles of walk-ons Jake Finlayson, Casey Woods and Robert Williams
• Offensive, defensive and special team's overviews
• In-depth previews of all 11 regular-season opponents
• Thumbnail sketches of every scholarship Vol and the notable walk-ons
