It's dumb thinking like that that got the Vols here. Give the guy a few years before butchering the program again. If Pruitt "didn't care" you wouldn't have Chaney, Weinke, Ansley, Neidermeyer...
Tough to take away anything from playing an FCS team. Bama likely won't be pretty, but it'll help him improve.
I'm sure the facts are different then what Josh is portraying. The medical staff has complete authority over these decisions. I'm guessing it went more like Muschamp told Josh he'd have to attend team meetings and workouts, but not necessarily work out (or just do what the med staff recommended) to remain on scholly. He sort of conveyed this when he said, "when you’re on scholarship I feel like you should have the option to stay." Sure sounds like he wanted out of football, but wanted to keep the scholly.
Finebaum is an entertainer. Pruitt's a ball coach. Big difference.
The game was different when Fulmer coached. He'd be a disaster. Vol's have been bad for a long time. It's going to take time to rebuild. Chaney was a good hire. Good staff and recruiters in place. I wouldn't panic over an overtime loss to BYU. Pruitt needs a few years. Another coaching change would set the Vols back further.
McConaughey's too involved. Need to get a new mascot.
That true freshman QB was pretty darn good. Picked apart Stanford. USC is looking pretty good.
Still early. Yeah, their offense looked bad. A few better passes by Patterson, and it's a different game. Turnovers hurt. Mich vs Wiscy should be a revealing game in 2 weeks. I like Mich in that one.
LSU looked like a BIG12 team. All offense poor defense.
Agreed. Have to say he did a good job facing an aggressive P5 college defense for the first time. Nice quick snap and TD pass to Stove that caught the Ducks napping.
KT opened against 2 win FCS Stephen Austin last year. Threw 13 for 31. No comparison.
Really can't take anything away from playing FAU. Maybe Cinn because of Luke's familiarity, but likely have to wait until Sparty.
I'm sure FSU was looking for any excuse for that move :-)
Sorry, I saw and OL getting beat and holding all night. The short passing game slowed the rush down early, but what did Enos call late to slow down the rush? Nothing. Pass after pass after pass. The game was winnable as evidenced by the missed FG chip shot.
Dr Lynch is a Penn State Alum and former Penn St wrestling star. This isn't someone to dismiss lightly. He alleges that he complained to Barbour, Black and the compliance officer about Franklin's interference. If he was blown off and fired, Penn State has a real problem.
'LSUUSMC' - My post is my opinion and it's based on years of watching Franklin, Tommy and McSorley. Franklin isn't 'sabotaging' his program by looking to the future. IMO Franklin simply didn't see the value of keeping Tommy (the presumed starter) for 1 year on a team of young talent, when he can get Clifford experience and make a real run next season. It's no secret that McSorley and Stevens were very close in ability. I am saying Tommy throws that ball better because I've seen it. He had the stronger arm, and better touch. It's a fact that McSorley was inconsistent last season. The UK game is a prime example when he was ineffective for 3 Qtr's.
Gators will cruise. Grantham will feast on the RS Freshman QB seeing a P5 defense for the first time in a game.
Franklin was HC, not Moorhead. Even when McSorley was injured, Franklin wouldn't pull him. Tommy moved the offense, ran just as well, could throw the long ball, and receivers didn't drop his passes. McSorley was inconsistent, had limited throwing range, and was a ball hog. Even an injured Tommy was just as good. Franklin has a young team this year due to departures, and IMO he decided to get Clifford a year's experience rather than play Tommy for one season.
I really think Franklin was looking to next year, and let Tommy walk. IMO he's equal to or better than McSorley. Definitely a better arm.
3 days? Lol. Story agreed to care for the dog. He had the dog for a month, was getting evicted from his apartment and left the dog there locked in a room with no food or water. Story then lied to his girlfriend, the dog's owner, saying he 'lost' the key to the apartment to prevent her from entering. The dog was skin and bones when saved. Story is on probation for 2 years, so no, he's not "served his punishment". What a load of BS from Miss State AD.
JoMo on who is the starting QB: "it’s going to come down to which of the two can throw the ball the best.” Translation, "Tommy".
Might have been a rude awakening facing UK, UF, AU, LSU and Texas A&M consecutively :-)
Fleming's just regurgitating what Hartline sold him on. Hartline's been a WR Coach at Ohio St for 1 year.
