    The early title bout of the day was billed as a monster clash between behemoths Kahlil McKenzie (whose big moment would come later in the pass-skeleton drill) and Charles Mosley, but it was the hit levied by freshman quarterback-turned-wide-receiver Jauan Jennings that got this Big Orange section of the Twitterverse buzzing:

    Drink it up, #VolNation. It's good for you. Football is back on Rocky Top.

    Tennessee football made its glorious return to the gridiron on Tuesday evening (amid high expectations), opening up its fall training camp at Haslam Field in a two-hour session that culminated under the watchful gaze of the Tennessee twilight. 



    We're just one practice down, but there's plenty for you to catch up on. Take a look at Wednesday's vitamin-packed serving of news and notes from around Rocky Top.

    1. So fresh, so clean

    The Nike era has officially arrived in Knoxville and Monday marked our first exposure to the new practice digs. Now, we've still got 31 days until we can see the real thing when the Vols take the field at Nissan Stadium on Sept. 5, but there was something poetic about Team 119 emerging from the doors in its crisp orange tops and glossy black cleats. The #OrangeSwarm looked every bit their namesake.


    The Vols' first practice day in Nike was covered in depth by the Knoxville News Sentinel's Mike Strange where he learned that the new apparel's biggest draw may be in the mentality it inspires.


    2. Jennings' transition

    Four-star freshman quarterback Jauan Jennings began to see work at wide receiver on Tuesday as the Vols look to add depth to the position. Plenty of eyes were cast toward the Murfreesboro, Tennessee, native as he navigated his way through the initial drills with the other wide outs. 

    Turns out the kid's got some hands. Jones praised Jennings' elite athleticism and quarterback Joshua Dobbs echoed those praises of the true freshman on his camp-opening performance.


    3. Bookworm Vols ahead of schedule

    Coach Jones reported after practice Tuesday that he felt his team was farther along in terms of installation and retention than he had anticipated going into Day One.

    Confidence and optimism are early traits of this Vol squad as it looks to translate hard work in the classroom and team meetings to results on the field.

    With Team 119 set to begin training camp later today, head football coach Butch Jones held his annual pre-camp press conference on Monday at the Stokely Family Media Center at Neyland Stadium. Topics ranged from an academia-focused camp schedule to positional battles to leadership growth to the theme of this year's team: 'My All.' If you missed any of Coach Jones' press conference on Monday, you can watch the presser in its entirety below. The full transcript can be found here.


    Not surprisingly, Coach Jones' comments leading to the start of training camp generated plenty of content from the local and regional media, including a piece from Mark Wiedemer of the Chattanooga Times Free Press citing Tennessee's emphasis on "winning in the classroom." That piece can be found here.
