    Tennessee is about to get a sense of how far its come - and how far it still has to go. When Tennessee visits No. 4 Oklahoma on Saturday, the Volunteers will be carrying a 2-0 record into a road game with a top-five team for the second straight season. Last year, the Volunteers got trounced 59-14 at No. 2 Oregon. Now they want to show the lessons learned since that disastrous trip.

Knoxville, Tn -  The lawyer for former Lady Vols media director Debby Jennings says discovery of information regarding former Tennessee women's basketball coach Pat Summitt should be included in his client's lawsuit against the school and athletic director Dave Hart.
    
David Burkhalter made his argument Thursday in a response to Tennessee's motion for a protective order that would forbid discovery of information related to Summitt's illness and the circumstances surrounding her departure as Tennessee's coach.
    
Tennessee said the requested information isn't relevant to Jennings' claim of disability retaliation. Burkhalter's response said granting the school's motion "would be the equivalent of granting the death penalty" to Jennings' disability retaliation claims.
    
Jennings is suing over allegations that age and sex discrimination led to her forced retirement after working 35 years at the school.
