    Warlick seeking better finish from Lady Vols

    Tennessee coach Holly Warlick believes improving her team's toughness can keep the Lady Vols from peaking too early for a second straight season.

Knoxville, Tn -

Boy, what a difference a year makes for Tennessee Volunteer kicker Michael Palardy.
   This time last season Palardy was being replaced by a "frat house" kicker who was rushed to the stadium by a police escort to save the day against Middle Tennessee State University.

On Saturday Palardy went from goat a year ago to hero when he connected on a 19-yard field goal as time expired to give unranked Tennessee a 23-21 victory over No. 11 South Carolina.
  The victory put to an end the Vols 19-game losing streak against ranked opponents.
   Palardy gave all the credit to his new head coach Butch Jones who's been in his corner since day one

Palardy also handles kick-offs and punts for the Vols.
