    RTI Podcast: Week 10.

    The Rocky Top Insider podcast is back for Week 10!

    On this week’s edition of the RTI Podcast, hosts Ryan Schumpert and Ric Butler have three main topics. First, the guys give their analysis on Tennessee’s internal investigation that concluded on Thursday afternoon and an injury report from Josh Heupel toward the beginning of the week. Then, the guys move into a preview for Tennessee’s game against No. 18 Kentucky on Saturday night.

    Without giving too much away, the guys discuss the record of both teams, and how Kentucky’s schedule actually stacks up with its 6-2 record. Tennessee is primed for its first ranked win of the year if they can beat Kentucky, also giving Heupel is first ranked win as the head coach of Tennessee.

    Lastly, the guys get into a discussion about Tennessee’s bowl projections after the investigation report this week. Ryan and Ric go through some of the bowl projections for the Vols from the last week, giving their opinions on how likely each landing spot really is. Although, they do disagree on a Music City Bowl projection for Tennessee’s future.
