Vols take major step backward

OXFORD, Miss. — On a week when three Tennessee players were arrested on attempted armed robbery charges, the rest of the Vols showed up at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on Saturday completely unarmed and definitely not dangerous.
UT put up only token opposition in a 42-17 blowout by Ole Miss in a major setback for Lane Kiffin’s rebuilding plan.
Within the context of what happened in the wee hours of Thursday morning, it was as if the Vols brought a pellet gun to a firefight.
