Tennessee Sports News

Hey Girls!  Here is a rundown of sports news in Tennessee as of recent, brush up and be educated :)
 The Preds are going through a rough patch.  After Pekka Rinne (our goalie) set a franchise record for most consecutive wins, we've lost 4 out of 5.  I'm hoping we pull it together by Tuesday for my valentine's date!

 The Vols beat the Gators in the Swamp this weekend.  Enough said!

Poor Murray State fell to TSU this past week.  Murray State was the last remaining undefeated D1 team.  It will be interesting to see this Cinderella story play out in the tournament this year.

 ESPN's College Gameday was here in Nashville this weekend!  Vandy hosted the #1 Kentucky Wildcats Saturday.  The 'Dores fell, but the stadium was electric.  

 The Titans have wasted no time this off season in signing free agents.  The most recent signings included 3 of their own free agents: Lavelle Hawkins (WR), Craig Stevens (TE), and Mike Otto (OL).  They're also spending their time gearing up for the NFL scouting combine later this month in Indianapolis, which is kinda like the initial job interview for the top college football prospects.  (Trust me, your guys know more about some random player from Montana State University than he knows about your family). 
Speaking of Indianapolis, a group of local Titan fans have started a campaign to bring Peyton Manning back to Tennessee to finish out his career should he get released by the Colts (check out of this subject in the weeks to come. 
Now you have a few tidbits for conversation starters this week!
