    The Rocky Top Insider podcast is back for Week 7!

    Before the Tennessee Volunteers welcome in the Ole Miss Rebels to Neyland Stadium, RTI’s Ryan Schumpert and Ric Butler are breaking down the biggest storylines leading into the game.

    The crew begins the podcast by discussing their closing thoughts on Tennessee’s win over South Carolina last Saturday. Then, they get into some of the biggest topics of this week.

    On Monday, Tennessee announced the return of #CheckerNeyland, which has not been done in Neyland Stadium since 2017. Additionally, on Tuesday, Tennessee officially revealed a sell-out for Saturday night’s game.

    Ryan and Ric wrap up the Week 7 podcast by giving a Tennessee and Ole Miss preview before even tackling a few minutes of Tennessee basketball conversation.

    Ric Butler is a Knoxville based sports media personality who has covered University of Tennessee athletics since 2017. Most recently, he served as the lead writer for the website of a local radio station. Ric also helped create and host a daily radio show called “The Blitz." Ric’s passion for sports, smooth vocal, and infectious personality have made him popular with both his peers and Vol Nation. Originally from Dallas, Ric didn’t grow up riding horses to school. But he did dream of the big city lights. When not chasing down the latest Tennessee story, Ric can be found watching the WWE, often attempting their moves in an embarrassing fashion.
