Former D2 player for five seasons...many years ago

Agreed. I would add that while I am happy to see improvement with UT, until they actually beat UF, UGA, or Bama more than once a decade (or longer) they aren't back. Really wish these reporters would stop hyping the team up before it is really deserved. That being said, I hope that I am pleasantly surprised by a UT win this weekend.
Inconsistency.... wish there was an edit option here
Agreed. While UT has shown improvement, they have shown consistency. In addition both wins have come against teams yet to win. UGA will be the first true test. I'm not expecting a win, but a competitive game would confirm the improvement is real.
Agreed. Love my Vols, but until they can show consistent play at QB and stop letting receivers get behind them at the end of the game, I don't believe any Top 25 ranking. Still cheering for them though!
Generally speaking, I don't have a big issue when eligibility waivers are denied, especially when it is obvious that the player is transferring because they got mad they weren't starting. I am not saying that happened here, I don't know the situation with Brooks. In this case however, in this season, why in the H3LL would anyone get denied. This young man should be allowed to play. If no one loses a year of eligibility, then no one should be denied.
Might want to rethink that statement. Neyland was Army... Props to all of our armed forces.
Who knows. I would hope so. Some of the big names can just sit back and wait for the draft, but I am sure there are quite a few other seniors that banking on a big year to earn some recognition and hopefully become a late round draft. That is gone for them now.
Transfer portal is about to get real busy since they have it set up for players to be able to remove their names if they want. I would expect to see a lot of juniors and seniors test the waters while they wait to see what the other big conferences do.
Don't be surprised if both seasons are cut to 10 games or less for that reason. It will effectively kill the small programs that rely on the 'Money Games' each year to fund their athletic departments. One year, they might be able to survive, but I don't see all of them making it two years.
I see your point, and I may be wrong, but it seemed to me that JG was fine in the middle of the field - he seemed to tense up every single time he got into the redzone. I would love to know his numbers outside of versus inside the redzone. Against UI, he was moving the ball down the field great but as soon as Tennessee got a first inside the 20, he started chucking everything into the endzone regardless of other players being open or the target being triple covered. LOL, maybe CJP should let JG run the offense only between the 20's and bring in a specialist for redzone play.
There are tons of players that could fit into this article. I would, however argue that Randall Cobb of UK should get some love. Truly wish he had gone to UT instead.
I agree, but there are too many questions with the passing game to have a ton of confidence. I would love for JG to figure it all out. If he did, I would easily take the over. He's great until he gets into the redzone - then he just seems to tighten up and tries to force it. Maybe CJP should have a redzone package with a different QB..lol - oh well, win or lose, I just hope we get to watch them play this year.
There would need to be some tweaks, but I like your idea. It would potentially have a secondary effect of helping to keep tuition down for students (though I doubt schools would do that).
Yep. Kirby shouldn't be any lower than a 1. Pruitt should be a 3. The strong finish was nice, but it was against lesser opponents and if he has another start like 2019, he could be a 4 or 5 on this list quite easily.
I'm sure that each fan here can find a stat for their team to add to this list. For UT, I would say that 15 consecutive shutout wins from Nov 5, 1938 to Dec 9, 1939 would be an unlikely record to break.
Was thinking the same thing.
Egg bowl will be epic this year... not even talking about the game
Agreed. The timing obviously raises questions but does not dismiss the validity of the suit. I have no doubt that the insurance companies involved will have tried to force someone else to pay. How long that took is anyone's guess.
While it is possible the suit was timed to garner sympathy for Cade, I would say that it is also possible that insurance companies have dragged this out fighting over who should pay the medical bills. I was in a hit and run accident where the person that destroyed my car was caught...drunk. And it still took his insurance nearly 6 months to pay up.
It's gonna be fun to see the build up prior to the Bama game and I believe they play UF next season too.
Both would certainly make the UF-FSU game even more interesting to watch each year.
Absolutely! 40 years a Vol fan and Jennings is easily one of my top 5 favorite Vols.
With the stockpiled talent you guys have, I wouldn't expect it next year either. It might be a better game though. Just hoping no one gets hurt in the game and UT can find ways to keep the clock running to shorten the game. Bama still wins 42 - 10.
Can't really agree with #7. There's nothing exciting about getting beat by 4 touchdowns on a bi-weekly basis. However, 13 is spot on and 15 was hilarious.
