Vols Hope to Solve Coleman Coliseum Hex


The Vols are riding a three game losing streak, and it might be hard to snap that skid in Tuscaloosa on Tuesday. Tennessee has won only four of their last 25 games at the Tide’s Coleman Coliseum.

Said head coach Rick Barnes:”I can’t. I don’t know. I can’t answer that. It doesn’t make sense. I don’t know if you can go into a tougher environment than we went in at Kansas. I don’t. It’s focus. I think that when you are on the road, you’ve got to have the ability. When things go against you, you’ve got to let it go.”

The Vols and Tide tip at 7pm, and the game will be televised on ESPNU.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
