Probably playing some soft coverage...which tells me pruitt may not confident in his defensive backs yet. As far as JG...he has always overthrown receivers or just plain out missed them, but he's all they have, the other guys aren't ready or just not good enough period. I hope that JG doesn't get hurt.
Losing Gooden is disappointing...his career hasn't panned out getting hurt and missing the season last year,then doing something stupid to end his career. Was looking for big things from him this year.
Don't pay attention to these guys making comments like that, probably kids still living with parents. With that being said I'm disappointed UT missing out on
What exactly is Ole Miss anyway...Land Shark, Mudd shark, Black Bear, or Rebel etc. Somebody please tell me this.
How the heck can smokey be that low...you gotta love him, and fitting to the school too. There's not even a tiger in Alabama or Louisiana...not to mention a damm elephant. And I like your land locked Admirals there. To rank Lassie ahead of Smokey just isn't right.
Either Pruitt is playing the recruiting game or he see's something in all the 3 star recruits. Evidently he knows what he's doing...but Georgia is in line for a lot of 4 and 5 star guys who have yet to commit, and seem to be the favorite for many of them.
That lunatic down at miss st. I doubt he'll make it a year without something crazy or illegal going on. Don't have anything against MS but that's pretty desperate to hire him.
@Nashville Gator That's kind of what I'm thinking...he's getting some guys on board right now and then later pulling offers from some 3 stars if he can get a big fish later on.
What's really impressive is Ohio State and the numbers they have...no one is anywhere near them, how are they doing that.
Butch jones ran off a lot of players...and didn't develop them very well at all. Josh Dobbs was an exceptional athlete that fit well in the run option offense he ran.
Clemson offers a lot less because they're established as a perennial power...to be honest I didn't think Swinney was going to get there, and still don't think he's all that great of coach...good staff and recruiting that exceeded big time.
Butch had some good classes...but man did he run a lot players off, showed favoritism. You have to develope the talent too, and I think he's doing a better job of that, especially on defense.
They outplayed Oklahoma for three quarters...but you have to give them credit for coming back like that at Neyland. That place was really rocking that night..one of the few times in several years it was really loud like it can be. I remember some OU players saying it was the loudest place they'd ever played, they say they couldn't hear anything on offense..that's why the comeback was impressive.
I forgot about that but your right...Georgia Tech shared a national title with I think Colorado not sure, maybe somewhere around '92
Those are two great pickups for Tennessee...but it's early, and if there's no football this fall that will give opposing programs more time to come after players. It may be tough to hang on to them.
If your around 50 years old it really wasn't Alabama/Auburn, it was Alabama/Tennessee, ask any older Bama fan and would probably tell you that. But since Tenn hasn't really been competitive in that game for a while its been relegated.
I've thought it all along...Guarantano is a tough kid and gives it all he has, its just not championship material in the SEC. I expect Bailey to push him very hard when practice starts again.
It's a business anymore...there used to be some kind of loyalty years ago, but now they just bolt when someone offers more money. I'm curious as to what the giants are paying him compared to what tennessee was.
Defensive tackles too...I see Georgia getting those big guys. I would rather have those than a top notch QB. Defense wins football games.
That's a tough one to compare him with...but I have to say he's probably the best pure linebacker I've seen at UT since A.J. Johnson.
That's rough...been a long time since the 90's, and even the early 2000's they were still pretty good. They don't have the guys up front on both sides, been that way for quite some time. The only thing they can do is try to get better each week.
They need to bulk up that offensive line or as good as Chandler is he may not be going anywhere as far as rushing goes.
David Cuttcliffe made Tee into a really good QB...he had the athletic ability but just needed the coaching. Nobody expected Tenn to go on that national championship run the year after Peyton left, but they just kept winning and made history.
I'm starting to wonder if this is Pruitt's team or Fulmer's...he really cares about the program but I hope he's letting Pruitt call the shots here. That being said...bringing Tee Martin back home can be nothing but good...he's a top recruiter and not a bad OC either in my opinion, he got a bad rap at USC. Working with Chaney he can even more about offensive philosophy.
He better forget about Tennessee and worry about the next team on the schedule...I didn't see anything in the video that led me to believe the Tenn players did anything wrong...it was a heated moment nothing more. If anything I would guess one of his players said something nasty to Schofield and that started. Players kind of take on the persona of they're head coach, if you know what I'm getting at.
Those guys behind him with another spring and fall camp would've went by him. I think he probably knew this.
I really don't prefer to bash the young players...but they will not miss much, one of the worst Offensive lineman and busts I've seen in a while. The stuff that I saw him do and not do in games was mind blowing...and don't know what video the UT staff was watching. Doug Matthews who is still close to the program pointed this out as well.
@Jay cardea I think Georgia was hurt by not having Mel Tucker on the sidelines in the Texas game. Smart was jumping all around trying to signal this and that. I believe it was too much on his plate being the head coach and having to call the defense
@Volmaster Are you telling me that Georgia couldn't cough up another 500 grand, get out here. You never know how these things go...maybe Chaney wanted out of there, maybe Smart wanted to go in a different direction. I can tell you one thing, Georgia didn't look good in that game against Texas...did Chaney have his mind on Tennessee...Smart and Chaney clashing who knows.
@Double O LOL...that's funny considering what they're still paying Butch Jones. I'm on the fence with the hire, Smart didn't fight to keep him and his time here with Dooley was up and down.
