A road map for getting back: Study shows Vols' fall from glory years

The introductory story in a huge online and Sunday print recruiting package: The News Sentinel created a database of every player signed by the Vols since 1994 — 434 players from 28 states, the District of Columbia and Canada. We looked at the 19 signing classes that span the coaching tenures of Fulmer, Lane Kiffin and, most recently, Derek Dooley. We wanted to determine what had changed and what could be fixed, particularly with a new coaching staff starting from a clean slate.
