Zach Mettenberger has thrown for enough yards this preseason to put his name at, or near the top of a couple of notable lists.

Just don’t look for him anywhere near the top of the Tennessee Titans’ depth chart.

Ken Whisenhunt did not gloss over the mistakes. Not all of them, anyway.

Mike Minor wasn’t trying to be perfect. The game was too close for that.

The Atlanta Braves left-hander, a product of Vanderbilt and Forrest High School, came oh-so close to a no-hitter Friday night, though.

Minor limited the Cincinnati Reds to just four walks through 7 2/3 innings before Billy Hamilton dropped a flare into center field. Not only did the single spoil Minor’s no-hit bid, it also tied the game 1-1 (Zach Cozart had walked and advanced to second on a ground ball) and ended Minor’s night after 107 pitches.

In a figurative sense, it is difficult to know just how far hockey has come in Middle Tennessee in the 16 years since the Nashville Predators played their first game.

In a literal sense, you could say the game has come 684 miles.

Ken Whisehunt has plenty of reasons to look forward to Saturday’s preseason game at Atlanta.

Beyond the fact that it is another opportunity to evaluate players and their understanding of his schemes, it is something of a homecoming for the first-year Tennessee Titans coach. He was born not far away in Augusta, Ga., played college football and earned a degree from Georgia Tech and spent his first four seasons as an NFL player with the Falcons.

What happens after the game is not so appealing to Whisenhunt.

The start of the weekend means it’s a game week for Vanderbilt.

The football team opens its season next Thursday – seven days from now – when it hosts Temple (8 p.m., SEC Network).

David Price staged a memorable return to Tampa on Thursday. Rare even.

In his first game against his former team, the left-hander threw a complete game, allowed one hit, struck out nine, walked none and did not allow a base runner after the second inning.

And he lost.

Patton Robinette got better.

That made him the best choice to be Vanderbilt’s starting quarterback in the minds of coach Derek Mason and offensive coordinator Karl Dorrell, who reached that conclusion during a Thursday morning meeting. The pair formally announced their decision following a late Thursday practice at Vanderbilt Stadium.

After a fumble in last Friday’s preseason loss at New Orleans, rookie running back Bishop Sankey has tried to get back on track. Literally.

Josh Malone learned quickly how much faster college football is than the high school game.

The moment occurred during a scrimmage early in the University of Tennessee’s fall camp, which concluded earlier this week.
