1967 Season a Return to Glory for Vols

Sports Staff
www.utsports.com

For head coach Doug Dickey, the 1967 football season was about achieving goals and
meeting expectations.

He was hired in 1964 to return
Tennessee football to prominence. It was his fourth season at
the helm, and Tennessee had not won an SEC title in 11 years.

"I think our expectations were high for the season, and so was the pressure," Dickey said. "We
had a talented group with great leadership, but there is always pressure to win
championships and that can change things."

It turned out that expectations and pressure were no match for his squad that year, and neither
was the
Southeastern Conference. After a season-opening loss to UCLA, the Vols won nine
straight games to capture the SEC crown and earn a berth in the
Orange Bowl. After a 26-24
loss to Oklahoma in that game, the Vols were still selected national champions by
Litkenhous
polling.
















"We were a well-balanced team," Dickey said. "That was the key to our success. We had great
talent on offense and defense, and we won a championship as a result."

Though Dickey is credited with the turning the program around, he is right to credit his players
for the success achieved in 1967. He had seven future All-Americans on his roster.

Six of them will be attendance at Saturday night's game against
Arkansas State, along with
Dickey and many other members of the 1967 team as Tennessee celebrates the 40th
anniversary of its football program's return to glory.



On Friday night, the team will hold its reunion at the
Gettysvue Polo, Golf & Country Club.
Saturday, the team will take in the football game.

Dickey,
Bob Johnson, Steve Kiner, Albert Dorsey, Charles Rosenfelder, Jim Weatherford and
Richmond Flowers will represent the 1967 team on the field in a pre-game ceremony. Â

A tremendously talented group, the 1967 team knows all about expectations.

With a head coach responsible for such great traditions as the run through the "T" and a group
of players who played significant roles in bringing the program to its current level, they should
expect nothing short of a hero's welcome Saturday night.
