Nothing defensive about this defense

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- We knew this Tennessee defense had a chance to be pretty good.
But the Vols have been smothering to this point. Granted, much of their dominance is due to the fact that Western Kentucky is awful on offense.
Still, here we are with less than 10 minutes to play in the second quarter, and Western Kentucky has run 12 plays for a total of minus-13 yards.
Defensive end Chris Walker was a star in the spring and preseason for the Vols. It looks like he's going to be a star this season, too. He's a blur getting to the quarterback. His partner on the other side, Gerald Williams, gives the the Vols the kind of pass-rushing tandem they haven't had in a while.
