The Tennessee Football Vault: The Story of the TN Vols

I was recently looking around the web as I am sometimes known to do and found this column from back in April that Tennessee Historian Tom Mattingly had written and posted on GoVolsXtra. The column is about Dr. Edward Boling. I attended and was a member of the same church as Dr. and Mrs. Boling for many years in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. His column on Dr. Boling is right on.

In 2009, a second edition of “The Tennessee Football Vault: The Story of the Tennessee Volunteers, 1891-2006” that was first published in 2006 will be released. With the change in the Coaching staff at the University of Tennessee this would be a great opportunity to purchase the book and go back and relive the history of our beloved football team.

Mattingly also authored and published “Tennessee Football: The Peyton Manning Years” back in 1998. I got that book when it was first available and it was a great book. Now, I just need to locate it again from all the books that I have.

Tom also has The Vol Historian blog that is worth checking daily. To contact Mr. Mattingly about when the second edition will be available and where, contact him by email here.
