Considering all the poor-mouthing and forecasts of doom for Tennessee in 2010, if someone had told Vols fans that an SEC team would lose to a team from the Ohio Valley Conference of the FCS, they probably wouldn't have slept a wink Friday night.

Thankfully, however, Ole Miss was the team that completely dumped on itself against OVC foe, Jacksonville State. The Vols faced UT-Martin, also from the OVC, on Saturday night.

The Vols didn't go the way of the Rebels. As a matter of fact, Tennessee went just the opposite and put up half-a-hundred on the Skyhawks.

It's usually pretty hard to find anything meaningful out of a game where the teams are so unevenly matched. That fact stayed true for the most part in the Vols first game of the season.

Tennessee was bigger, faster, and stronger than UT-Martin and it showed. But from the opening game, we can draw some nice nuggets for Vols fans to chew on while awaiting their next opponent, Oregon.
