Logan Durham is gearing up for a rough — or, maybe that’s “ruff” — year. And he’s looking forward to every moment of it. Durham, a sophomore in communications from Cleveland, Tenn., will serve as this year’s lead Smokey, UT’s costumed bluetick hound mascot.
Adam Vicars never expected to follow in his older brother’s paw prints when he got to the University of Tennessee. But he did. Adam and Jason Vicars are the only brothers ever to have served as Smokey, according to Joy Postell, UT mascot director.

Einstein Bros. Bagels will open Monday, Sept. 10, in the Art and Architecture building.
