I mean you Majors who resents Phil and Phil who resents Currie. Sounds like one big happy family to me. lol.
Unfortunately, Big Jim calls the shots. The only thing the boosters are united on is that CBJ won't be coach next year. They're not willing to give up control. Instead they are all jockeying for position and trying to pry the influence from Big Jim's hands.
Butch is gone. It's just a matter of when it's made official.
Dormady refuses to hand off too much. JG needs the lion's share.
Georgia calling anyone an underachiever is hilarious!
Speight gift-wrapped those INTs to UF. Dormady could do the same but at this point I'm not sure how good the UF secondary really is until I see more of them. One thing that Dormady has shown is a ton of leadership and composure. Nothing seems to rattle him and just about everything that could go wrong went wrong during the first 3 quarters of the GT game.
Medley is great for kickoffs (has been masterful there), extra points, and FGs at or below 40 yards (has the leg for longer but never has been able to get the accuracy for long range kicks). Where I think we might see Cimaglia is on FGs, especially longer ones.
That's not really true. It's illegal in far more states than legal and it's beyond just the South. Also, even in states where they've repealed state laws criminalizing weed it's still technically illegal under Federal law. We need wholesale repeal period but that will take a while.Regardless, weed is an issue for sports as long as the NCAA and NFL include it as a banned substance. Colleges don't give an ish about pot, they're not enforcing a law, but they do have to enforce school policies (if a school administered test) and NCAA policies (when it's a NCAA screen). Most will never get caught smoking a lil weed but some do and they and their team pay for it. The solution is pretty simple - the NCAA should NOT be testing for recreational non-performance enhancing drugs.
Cruise to an easy win and drop 2 spots. lol.
Georgia got no love for that game because they didn't dominate it and ND was a marginal top 25 team at best that most of us thought shouldn't have been ranked to begin with. It was a nice solid win for UGA but unless ND turns out to be far better later on in the season they won't get much love (much like when UT beat VT last season - at the time no one thought VT was any good so no credit was really given for it but they wound up being a pretty good team).
Wiggins needs to take Martin's place. That said, Indiana St. runs a very exotic offense with lots of motion. It's not a traditional O at all. That may have been enough to catch players off guard on those sweeps. Ignont and Wiggins shut those sweeps down in the few snaps they played.
The UT-UGA was considered the best game of the year by just about everyone nationally. I don't think this was mere coincidence. Someone was having a bit of fun at UGA's expense.
The media is making it out like there's still a competition but this is just getting the backup the reps he needs. In regular games we'll see JG in packages but this is Dormady's team.
Texas A&M also uses a trash can.
I'm a Vol fan and this is an insensitive comment. There's no choice but to cancel this game and if anything it hurts UF to do so. Not only do they lose money but their team loses a game they would've used to clean things up. Rest isn't as important as reps this early in the season and their offense needs a lot of reps.
PJ went for two because he knew GT couldn't stop our offense. He even said as much. That said, it was a good gamble on his part given how much we struggled against the triple-option. However, UT's defense stepped up when it mattered most and ultimately won the game.Much respect for GT tho. They played their hearts out and their QB is something truly special.
This is 100 percent the truth and even I was guilty of it. Dormady did look like Worley in the first half. However, two things happened in the second half: 1. the OL started playing well. 2. Dormady finally tucked the ball and ran a few times (the system doesn't require him to make big plays but it does require him to run it at least a few times to establish in the opponents mind that they have to be on the look out for it).That said, Dormady is a very large QB. I'm not concerned with running it occasionally wearing him down. I'm far more worried about the hits he takes fromt he pocket because those are when he's most vulnerable and QBs are often blindsided and unaware of a large hit before it happens.Dormady has a lot to work on still. His footwork is worse than Dobbs. But that's correctable. We watched a young man grow up before our eyes and although a fre in the press went wild with what Jones said it absolutely was 'grit' and a 'will to win' that carried Dormady and the team through.
He grew up a Vol fan, became a UF legend, and then gave breathed life into USC, why on Earth would he say "Roll Tide"? UF-FSU rivalry aside to ask someone like Spurrier to say Roll Tide is asking too much.
May your program be blessed with a media just like Knoxville's. THEN you'd understand.
Coach Jones is incorrect. Local media has spent most of fall camp discussing the fact that Quinten Dormady chose to wear sleeves.
So if he finishes with 9 wins he's COTY but you'll question last year more? The only question you should be asking is how many different starters did Tennessee play on defense alone last season. That will tell you what happened.
Jaylen Reeves-Maybin didn't play most of the year (out for the year early -- wasn't even a part of the Florida win except for attempting to try a few snaps and never came back during the season). Cam Sutton was also out early and for most the year. While Sutton did come back for a few game at the very end, he wasn't in form at all.IOW, they're huge losses on paper but in reality they were gone early last season.
The key to Barnett's play was two-fold 1. technique (he was judo master with his hands) AND 2. BEND. People get caught up on other measurables because there's no such thing as a NFL DE Bend test at the combine but what Barnett lacks in other areas he has 100 fold in bend. He defies gravity in ways that shouldn't be possible. His current team saw that the first day he practiced and you will certainly hear more about it in the NFL.Kongbo has better traditional measurables and depending on how fast he learns should be poised for a big year (folks need to remember he's been playing organized football for all of about 3 yrs) but assuming he picks things up where he left off at the end of last season there's a lot of reason for optimism. I mean good lord he's a physical freak that can play both DE and 3-technique.
Missouri Author don't be dense. CBJ worded it that way because he clearly couldn't say Finebaum didn't know TN. Though PAWL has made his living in AL so long I doubt that he has much clue about UT or TN anymore. His allegiance clearly doesn't lie with us and hasn't since he made Fulmer into the devil for his BAMA radio listeners because it paid so darn well.
I love Sutton but picking him over Barnett is absolutely unreal.
With regard to the way the East's schedule falls, especially Tennessee's and Florida's, Danielson is spot on. Tennessee fans have wanted to play Florida later in the year since 90s expansion and Florida would likely be well served playing FSU earlier. Unfortunately all of our difficult games are at the start of the season and the easy ones are at the end. If we were to switch the time we played UF, the East race would be more exciting down the stretch for everyone. Instead, it's usually decided in the first few weeks.
Guice was incredibly stupid with those remarks. When UT was coming off a very good stretch, hyped up but also incredibly injured from the TAMU game (not a single starter on the OL played the BAMA game), Saban brutalized us for it. He had his team hyped because despite the injuries we'd suffered the prior games we were doing well. Some of that was our rivalry but a lot more had to do with being perceived as a threat and we might've been had more players been healthy. But even when we pulled the QB, Saban ignored it (cuz rivalry). LSU isn't the rival Auburn and UT are but Guice's words will stick.Guice made damn sure Saban will want to make them bleed and while I don't think their OC is as good as Kiffin, facing an angry BAMA team never ends well.
Exactly. Jones has never done well with the press. Take the whole Champions of Life deal - he got mocked for saying that about developing players and helping them face what lies ahead post-college. Weeks later the B12 ran adds promoting precisely that term all bowl season and nary a negative word was spoken. Boring is fantastic in this case.
