During his Thursday appearance in Atlanta for the Southeastern Conference media days event, Tennessee second-year football coach Josh Heupel took some time to discuss Chattanooga, dodgeball, the 2000 Heisman Trophy race and, of course, all things Volunteers.
Q: This time last year, you had yet to visit Chattanooga. I know you made a Big Orange Caravan stop, but have you had time to take in the city?
A: I've been able to go through there this summer a little bit, and that's a cool downtown area. Obviously it's hugely important to us on the recruiting side of it, and it's a huge part of our fan base. It's a cool city, and I'm looking forward to spending more time down there.
