Lawvol ... Yep you guessed it, I'm a degenerate shyster (lawyer) by day, but the keeper of the flame over at in my spare time, and Tennessee fan far more of the time than is really healthy.

I have an unnatural and unwholesome fascination with the color orange, and am an unrepentant fan of the Tennessee Volunteers. Focusing on the SEC, I take a tongue-in-cheek look at the world of college sports through the only eyes I have -- those of a Tennessee alum.

I am also the architect of the "Tennessee Home for the Visually Offensive" a museum of college sports farks (photoshopped photos) which is hardly the Louvre' -- but you gotta' start somewhere.

Oh yeah, and while everyone on the web knows me as "lawvol," I have also been known to go by the name "Matt."

    To anyone reading...

    I am sorry for the typos and the missing images in my posts, although I've been blogging over at for a while, I'm not having much luck with the formatting controls here on Bleacher Report when I import my posts (coming from WordPress). My approach to sports writing typically includes a fair number of images (which I know Bleacher Report somewhat discourages, but it's my style) and while they show up in the editor, they aren't displaying in the actual post.

    I am sorry if my posts are less than perfect, and I welcome any tips from anyone who can give me some help on getting my posts to display correctly.
