A Weekend With The Vols

| No TrackBacks


Grantland.com's Holly Anderson spent the Oklahoma weekend with the Volunteers and offers a rare behind-the-scenes look at the mechanics of going on the road with a young football team.




A freshman with a wealth of international experience already under her belt, Puerto Rico native Kanisha Jimenez has settled in nicely with the UT volleyball program. Hailing from Bayamon, Puerto Rico, Jimenez has started in eight of this season's 10 matches and leads the team with 35 sets played. Displaying a well-rounded skill set, Jimenez is fifth on the team in total kills with 45, third on the team in total blocks with 24, and second on the team in total digs at 106. She recorded her first double-double of her career in a 3-1 win, posting 11 kills to go with 20 digs and has the most aces in any single game for the Lady Vols this season after dropping in four at Evansville. 

Here's a look at a feature story from the University of Tennessee's Daily Beacon, documenting Jimenez's transition to Knoxville:

The first win in Johnny Majors' career as head coach of the Vols came on Sept. 17, 1977 with a 24-18 win over Boston College at Neyland Stadium. In the game, the Vols forced eight turnovers by the Eagles (four interceptions and four fumbles). When the Vols forced Western Kentucky into seven turnovers a year ago in week two, the 1977 game was researched as the one with the most turnovers other than the 1984 game vs. Memphis with seven turnovers by the Tigers.
