We finally reached game week in the SEC.
The Vols kick off their conference only schedule Saturday against South Carolina.
Tennessee of course has battled the COVID in fall camp. At one point, they had 44 players that couldn’t practice. What about for Saturday? Will the Vols roster numbers be affected against the Gamecocks? Head coach Jeremy Pruitt is staying mum on the subject.
Said Pruitt:”When it comes to what our numbers will be for Saturday, I’m not sure that it’s fair for the kids that are going to play to release that. Just from a competitive stand point, so we’re not going to release each week the exact numbers.”

His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers.
Rick’s next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour’s annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami.
Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field.
If he’s not covering sports, he’s either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out.
What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills.
