Second half strikes again; Vols lose to Gators at Neyland

Second half strikes again; Vols lose to Gators at Neyland

Right up until the second half Saturday night, the incredible momentum that energized Knoxville for the past week seemed like it might be enough to carry the Tennessee Volunteers to a victory against the Florida Gators for the first time in eight meetings.

The Vols were up 14-10 in front of a sell-out crowd of more than 102,000.

 

But then the 2nd half happened to a team that's had some memorable 2nd half meltdowns in the past few years.

Then the Gators scored 27 points.

Not in My Backyard

Having a background in real estate, I pay attention when I see rezoning notices posted.  However, early this summer, my neighbors in Country Club Estates and I were surprised to receive a notice from a local developer in our mailboxes.  It seems one of our grocery stores, Food City, would like to relocate across AJ Highway and build a new store.
