You know you're a Vols walkon if ...

By Gary Lundy, News-Sentinel sportswriter
January 2, 2000

TEMPE, Ariz. - University of Tennessee football walk-ons have had their own stand-up comedian on the team bus rides to practice sessions for the Fiesta Bowl.

The humor of Brian McCann is legendary among the Vols. Reading from a script he updates daily, McCann takes a microphone at the front of the bus and delivers his commentary to howling teammates.

A sampling of his one-liners:

You know you might be a UT walk-on ...

* If the only draft you're worried about is in case of a World War.

* If you go to the training room with a sprained ankle and (trainer) Mike Rollo says "looks good. Come back next week."

* If you've had the same pair of cleats for four years.

* If coach (Phillip) Fulmer finally calls you by name, but it's not your name.

* If you've ever had to dress in the showers on game day.

* If your autograph depreciates the value of a football.

* If the name on your jersey is misspelled.

"Even though I make fun of things in our program, I bleed orange and love this program," McCann said.
