One thing though, this team is talented and has weapons. I hope Kiffin doesn't end up there. Him with AR-15 would be an absolute nightmare for everyone who isn't rocking jorts and doing the gator chomp.
I'd be pretty excited to see us against Purdue. And also I think the only way bama gets in is by beating Georgia. Cinci isn't losing any games left on their schedule, neither is Ohio state. If Oklahoma st or Oklahoma win out they are in. That's three, and Notre Dame is a committee favorite too. I just don't see a two loss bama making it. Good read though.
Oh for sure you guys did, and we for sure had one last defensive stand. But it seemed to throw off the drive. I'm still happy with the dub and think the vols deserve it. Just you hate to see refs insert themselves in a good game right at the end.
Hell of a game for both teams. But that missed facemask call has me feeling bad for Kentucky. That might have robbed them of a win.
No it doesn't sound like a way to beat every team in today's era of high octane offense. Or against any team with the defensive acumen to stack the box and play good man coverage. And there are plenty of teams who can. To Gwhite and mapjock I hear you on the whole take the foot off the gas explanation. I just also feel that our lack of depth will show against teams who are well prepared enough to not get blown out in the first quarter. Four of our last six opponents either won't get blown out in the first quarter, or can hang just as many points(ole miss).
This game was fun to watch. But SC showed the blueprint for how to beat us. If you have a good defensive line that has plenty of depth. You can get stops if you come out with the right plan. And if you have offensive line depth and some good running backs, I don't think we can outright stop that kind of rushing attack. Kentucky, Alabama and Georgia can run that type of offense and Kentucky and Georgia specifically run that type. Alabama just is good at everything. Ole miss might be winnable, but we have so many injuries on an already thin roster.
Bill, I haven't been on in a while and hadn't seen you post as of yet since I came back. My favorite SC poster on here. This should be a close, tough game. I'd say this is a toss up game if there ever was one. Albeit we have the home advantage and the crowd should be wild after we drubbed Mizzou like we did last week.
2019 was a pleasant surprise. But last year's dog fight is more of what I expect when we play South Carolina. For some reason, despite who the coach has been,this series has been one of the most competitive we have had recently. Both teams will play all four quarters. I expect our defense to come out strong like they have been. I think the first quarter maybe ends 10-7 with the vols up. Go into half 24-10. But that's when our defense and lack of depth will catch up to us. I see us escaping 38-31 after they start figuring things out and making plays against a tired defense. Their defense will keep them in it, until we score one last time for the win.
I think Bailey goes to the west coast to play in the pac 12 or he transfers to ole miss after this season. I don't know if he will wait that long after being the guy already for a little while to end last season. Just my two cents.
I think once some of their wr's start coming back this Georgia offense will look better. Also as the game progressed JT started finding a rhythm with who was on the field. They couldn't complete a drive, but they found something to work with moving forward. A few tune up games and I'd be worried. Already expect Joe Milton to get eaten alive as long as it takes him on reads.
Either our receivers aren't getting open or it takes him entirely too long to find an open wr. He looked like a statue back there in the pocket. Better teams will tee off on him.
I think the big ten goes after the PAC 12 honestly. The PAC 12 has good basketball and some teams that could be ripe for the picking at the top of the division. I don't like it, but I could see there being two power leagues, the southeast and the northwest. Divide America like two big pizza slices. A twelve team playoff with that would be NFL jr.
HB is a game time player from what I've seen. It surprised me to hear a lot of reports that Milton or Hooker are leading him. One even said Maurer was ahead of him. I hope he gets the start though. I think he would do well given the chance.
That is a solid point boxster. Players will be paid to stay not necessarily just to play. Although at some point some jack wagon player will take the money to stay and then transfer anyway. I don't think it will be the trend, but it will happen at least once.
I would almost put money down that Brian Maurer goes to Memphis after or during the season as well.
The PAC 12 is USC, Oregon, Washington, and cal. Sometimes the Arizona schools. My thought is the big ten is heading there next if they want to add schools. Notre Dame and BYU do present some problems for super leagues. The idea of super leagues right after an expanded playoff sounds unfortunate to me though. Part of the fun of football is speculation. Georgia being preseason champs, who can knock off Alabama this year, UT(pick one) being back, would 04 Auburn have been better than Oklahoma against USC, ect.... With bigger conferences and all the major contenders playing each other so often, the postseason will be full of rematches. That just doesn't sound as appealing to me.
If it's an infraction being enforced by the big 12, would an SEC player get in trouble if they did it? It's maybe a dumb question, but I'm genuinely curious.
The UT fan base is on another level. Any story involving us immediately pops up as the most viewed on the recent list. Starved for some wins or even any news.

I think it's either Oklahoma or Georgia this year. Both have quite a lot of pieces in place to have a magical season. Only, Georgia has a much more difficult road to get there and may suffer a fair amount of attrition just getting to the playoff. Meanwhile OU will probably be able to bench starters and work on depth in the second half of most of their games. Whoever is freshest might have a lot to do with it.
Trey is a high character kid with a bright future at Kansas City I'm sure. His next contract once he gets past his rookie one will be big. I normally don't agree with gators but I respect your input. Dawgie style, I hope you're just a young kid who has some growing up to do. If you are an adult, I'm embarrassed for you and your whole family.
Kind of wild that Josh Palmer went before Trey Smith. I understand the blood clots have a lot of GM's worried, but Trey is a mauler on the line.
It's a shame to lose the talent, but it's nice to see the standards he is setting in place. They probably wanted to have playing time sooner than he would let them after making that boneheaded decision. This tells me he isn't soft on discipline.
If this were a drinking game, like take a shot each time bad news comes out of Knoxville, all of East TN might be deceased.
All I can do is say wow like Owen Wilson over and over
I will absolutely catch all the flak for this. But I grew up in a household with an alcoholic, and I'd much rather somebody smoke a little pot now and again. Two ounces is either subject to him going in on a good deal or trying to be a petty dealer. Neither of which is a major offense IMO. Being southern I do believe that discretion was lost in this young man. But does it make him a bad person? I for one don't believe so. I hope he lives up to his potential and supercedes this with excellence on and off the field.
I still get hot around the collar when I hear the name Bob Shoop. Swear we would have been more competitive with John Janceck in 2016. What gets me is he had success every where else too. Excuse me while I go burn mattresses.
A fellow can dream, but dreaming of a good candidate for TN only ends in waking up to another bad hire.
