Feels like 98: Team 120 and beyond - A Tennessee Volunteers Dynasty



Giving a dynasty report another whirl. I may not be the most active member among the dynasty threads, but I do plan on giving this particular dynasty some longevity. After finally getting the settings down to what I feel is the most balanced I can, I finally feel like I can give Dynasty Mode a serious go.

You may now post at this time!

Game: NCAA Football 14
Console: PS3
Sliders: Josh's "50ish" Threshold sliders
Rosters: Josh's conversion of CallMeLSU's 15-16 Rosters
Skill Level: Heisman Gameplay, Heisman Recruiting
Quarter Length: 8 minutes (May go to 9 as the dynasty progresses, but starting at 8)
Recruiting: Will only fill scholarships with the amount of team needs, as I want to keep this dynasty competitive. I feel that over-recruiting tends to imbalance the roster for the human controlled team, thus leading to a sometimes early dominance. This should create a balanced challenge throughout the dynasty.
Players Leaving/Transfers: I will not persuade a player to stay if he chooses to depart Tennessee early, whether via transfer or early draft entry. Transfers will be accepted in most cases.

I purchased an Elgato HD for use with this dynasty. It should arrive in a couple of days. I've always been intrigued by game capture, so this is my first rodeo with one.

*** I will be simming the first season in order to get to the 2014 season. I'll be using 15-16 rosters to get as close to the current rosters that I can. By simming to the 2014 season, the schedule will mostly line up with the games being played in 2016. For example, Tennessee hosts Florida and Alabama this year, just as they did in 2014 as well. ***

Despite the heated in-state rivalry with Auburn, former Alabama coach Bear Bryant was more adamant about defeating his rivals to the north, the Tennessee Vols. The series is named the Third Saturday in October, the traditional calendar date on which the game was played. Despite the name, the game was played on the third Saturday just five times between 1995 and 2007. The first game between the two sides was played in 1901 in Birmingham, ending in a 6–6 tie. From 1902 to 1913, Alabama dominated the series, only losing once, and never allowing a touchdown by the Volunteers. Beginning in 1928, the rivalry was first played on its traditional date and began to be a challenge for the Tide as Robert Neyland began challenging Alabama for their perennial spot on top of the conference standings. In the 1950s, Jim Goostree, the head trainer for Alabama, began a tradition as he began handing out cigars following a victory over the Volunteers.

Between 1971–1981, Alabama held an eleven-game winning streak over the Volunteers and, between 1986–1994, a nine-game unbeaten streak. However, following Alabama's streak, Tennessee responded with a seven-game winning streak from 1995–2001. Alabama has won the last eight meetings from 2007 to 2014. Alabama won the 2014 game 34-20 in Knoxville and leads the series 52–38–7. Alabama is Tennessee's third most-played opponent, after Kentucky and Vanderbilt. Tennessee is Alabama's second-most played opponent after Mississippi State.



The Gators and Vols first met on the gridiron in 1916, and have competed in the same conference since Florida joined the now-defunct Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association in 1912. However, a true rivalry has developed only relatively recently due to infrequent match-ups in past decades; in the first seventy-six years (1916–1991), the two teams met just twenty-one times. This changed in 1992, when the Southeastern Conference (SEC) expanded to twelve universities and split into two divisions. Florida and Tennessee were both placed in the SEC's Eastern Division, and have met annually on the football field since 1992. The rivalry quickly blossomed in intensity and importance, as both squads were perennial championship contenders throughout the 1990s. The games' national implications diminished in the 2000s, as first Florida and then Tennessee suffered through sub-par seasons. However, the intensity of each meeting still remains one of the highest in college football.



Tennessee and Kentucky have played each other 108 times over 114 years with Tennessee winning 75 to 24 wins by Kentucky (.736). Tennessee has won the most games in Lexington with 35 wins to 14 by Kentucky (.702). Tennessee also has more wins than Kentucky in Knoxville with 45 wins to 10 (.787). Tennessee has the most wins in the series at Stoll Field with 19 wins to 11 Kentucky wins (.621). The Series is tied at 3 a piece at Baldwin Park. Tennessee leads the series at Neyland Stadium with 35 wins to 7 Kentucky wins (.792). Tennessee leads the series at Commonwealth Field with 17 wins to 3 Kentucky wins (.850). Like many college football rivalries, the Tennessee-Kentucky game had its own trophy for many years: a wooden beer barrel painted half blue and half orange. The trophy was awarded to the winner of the game every year from 1925 to 1997. The Barrel was introduced in 1925 by a group of former Kentucky students who wanted to create a material sign of supremacy for the rivalry. It was rolled onto the field that year with the words "Ice Water" painted on it to avoid any outcries over a beer keg symbolizing a college rivalry.

The barrel exchange was ended in 1998 after two Kentucky football players died in an alcohol-related crash.

The barrel makes its return to the rivalry in 2016, after the NCAA and SEC committees agreed on the return of the trophy, under the circumstances that the alcohol reference is dropped.



Vanderbilt and Tennessee have played 108 times since 1892; Tennessee has a winning record of 73–30–5 (.699). When the rivalry first started, Vanderbilt dominated by taking 19 of the first 24 with 3 ties (.854). After 1928, UT has dominated the rivalry with numerous win streaks and since then UT has a record of 71–10–2 (.867). The largest margin of victory for Vandy was by 76 points in 1918 at Old Dudley Field in Nashville, 76-0. The largest margin of victory for UT was by 65 points in 1994 at Vanderbilt Stadium, 65-0. The longest winning streak for Vanderbilt is 9 from 1901 to 1913. The longest winning streak for Tennessee is 22 from 1983 to 2004.
