  • Happenings on the hill

    As of today, a new column will be running weekly in the Roane Count News called Happenings On The Hill. This column will focus on the University of Tennessee athletics and will focus primarily on football, men’s and women’s basketball and softball and baseball. For the most part, it will be on time with the season being played. Unless something drastic happens. (not that ever happens at UT) I can’t promise everything in this column you will agree with, but just like whoever may be reading, I’m just a Vol fan who is putting my thoughts on paper.
