I don't blame him one bit. He's played through some (possibly minor, but still real) injuries for this team. He stayed after Sgt Carter and then Pruitt were given a pink slips. He is very much a VFL. He isn't a "for sure" draft pick, but has the potential to work his way onto boards. Playing in the senior bowl is way more important than playing in the Duke Mayo bowl for HIS future. Every situation is different. I say good luck to him and thanks for giving your all!
thanks, assuming Corral and Young were off the board, I'd probably take KJ or Rogers before Hooker. I very much appreciate how he played this year, but I also believe Heupel put him plays which set him up to succeed. If you look at games with Milton, he had the exact same looks, but didn't hit his man. I feel like an accurate QB does very well in Heupel's system. If you stick Hooker and Rogers both in Georgia's offense, I think Rogers might have the most success. KJ too. Just an opinion though.
I think the author ranks them only by team performance and stats (which should be factors, but not the only ones). I'd prefer to rank them as if picking a QB for a brand new team from the SEC by approximate grouping: 1&2 Corral and Young 3-5 KJ, Hooker, Rogers 6-8 Bennett, Levis, Johnson 9-10 Florida QB, Finley 11-12 Calzada, Bazelak 13-14 USC QB or Vandy QB Bazelak has baffled me with his inconsistency. I would have pegged him as a top half SEC QB, but he doesn't always perform.
Swineflu, LOL I was thinking the same thing while reading his comment. I couldn't focus on his point because of it.
Also, it's pretty telling that zero of his highlight film has any plays from the two games they lost. One of those games was televised, so it wasn't hard to find clips. He was toasted a couple of times at DB and completely blanked as a WR. Granted the QB couldn't get him the ball and they had to direct snap it to him, but if you'd have seen the way he acted in the 4th quarter and how he fought with(and got knocked down by) a sophomore after the final kick return attempt, which ended his night, you'd probably not be as excited about him. Again, he's talented and fast, but he needs to grow up and toughen up, which can happen if he allows Stoops (and UK coaches) to mold him.
Be careful bragging about getting Barion…I watched him play twice. He quits on his team. Sure, he is slippery and explosively fast (especially for high school). However, he is tiny and screams at and fights his own teammates. There’s a reason Bammer pulled his offer. There’s a reason he was suspended TWICE from his high school team. There’s a reason he is only on the field when needed to win a game. There’s a reason he completely bails on some plays and just stands there on defense giving up the go ahead score in the playoffs, and then takes his helmet off on the field and slings it to the sidelines and stomps off to the stands and the coaches just ignore him. Sure, a D1 coach might turn that around, but be careful bragging about him just yet.

Heupel's extended quote about Velus was even better and shows his character. He said something like: "That's all him and his abilities. We can't coach that." I know there's other coaches out there who give credit to players like that, but the last two knuckleheads at UT weren't that. I have no idea if Heupel's offense will work every year and how long he'll be there, but his honesty seems genuine. The players all gush about how much fun they are having and how they enjoy being coached by this staff. It's year 1, but it does seem to be very different. Now go get some quality recruits...
Texastig, I think part of the reason Coach O is gone is so he doesn't have to testify in the Title IX case. I bet he is out of coaching for a year or two while the case wraps up. He and Big Papi are going to have a show on ESPN called "What did we say?" "You heard it here first, but didn't understand any of it."
rxmaster, are you saying Texas isn't a top 10 program for head coaches? Money talks. They have it. Obviously, their results outside of Vince Young and Colt McCoy's years are pitiful compared to expectations, but they are still a top 10 coach destination.
straight from ESPN FPI... UT's will fall after this weekend and next, but this is based upon already played games. Vols have played 4 of the top 18 teams on the most recent CFP rankings, including 1&2.
Current SOS rankings: 1) Vols 2) Arkansas 3) LSU 5) AU 7) UF 11) USCjr 12) Ole Miss 14) Miss State 16) Kentucky
1) Boca is not Miami. 2) He was finalizing divorce after sleeping with Saban's daughter for a year. 3) He was at FAU, so not nearly as much focus was on his extra-curricular activities.
UT offense is ranked 21st after the UGA game...no moral victories. They beat Vols ass in the second quarter and didn't need to do anything else.
I'm with EJ on this. Look at what Kiffin did with Crompton in his one year at UT. He took a kid that was highly touted, but couldn't throw it to the correct jersey color and got him to throw for 2,800 yards and 27 TDs. The kid got drafted and a shot at the league because of it.
Kiffin is not going to Miami. Unless, he is the dumbest man alive. Based on how he reportedly acted off the field, the Miami club scene alone is enough to kill his career. He'll be at Ole Miss until a top 10 program comes calling. Texas, in a couple of years? Alabama, when the old man hangs it up? Notre Dame? LSU, not this time, but maybe after the next guy fails to win more than 1 natty every 6 years? Ohio State or Michigan? Florida and Texas A&M, maybe. Those are the only types of programs he's going to be interested in. Sure USC or even UT would probably be on his list, but those are longer shots for obvious reasons.
Any good offensive coach builds his offense to avoid the limitations of the QB while also playing to the strengths as well. Of course many fans want a QB who is playing well to lead the team for as long as possible. Hopefully, CJH will give the players honest information and offer support to help them once the decisions are made (and I believe he will). Could Hooker benefit from another year? Probably. Could being another yet year older than the guys he'll be compared to if he stays be harmful to his draft? Probably. There are many pros and cons for the young man to consider. The game speeds up over time. You say this offense is a gimmick. Yet, it'll find its way into the NFL more and more. The NFL has increased its average number of plays per game for years. 20 years ago, the fastest offenses ran 66 PPG. Now, there are several teams averaging close to 70 PPG. This is despite rules changing significantly to shorten games over the years.
Dave's keyboard somehow wouldn't allow him to type Joshua Dobbs during the writing of this article. Otherwise, there was some decent information here.
I was shocked JT wasn't in the game for the entire 4th quarter. Bennett is obviously good enough to win the games they've played, but if you have a better arm on the bench, shouldn't you at least get him some work?
Tillman #4, on any top 15 team in the country would be getting all kinds of national exposure as a top WR in country. In fact, Pruitt is such a good DC, he held him under 65 yards in each of his first 3 years. In all seriousness, Tillman has his best games against top competition. Kid is a stud. If UGA can hold UT to 17 points with the offense designed to stress a D, they are legit. I hate UGA, and I'll be hoping they lose, but barring them putting together a dud, they shouldn't have a ton of trouble.
difficult cross division opponent you say? Vols fans enter conversation...
Ron Zook is available. The Maryland defense is top 110 in Opp PPG and top 100 in Opp YPG!
I think this was an ad for his OnlyFans account which features Butch and a glory hole in a brick wall
they obviously missed the face mask and there's holding on most plays. speaking of holding, I've never seen a line get away with 4 holds on one play like the blue team early in the second half. I still haven't got used my Kroger points for the win last weekend!
There's a formula, it involves having the right ingredients AND put them together without mistakes. UT may actually have some of the right ingredients, but not enough that they don't need UGA to help out at least twice. If UT can put together first downs and keep the UGA Defense from subbing, then the ball can be moved down the field. Three and outs will be killers. UT might give UGA their best stress on defense yet, but the UGA offense will pound the UT defense at will. I hope the Orange competes for 4 quarters, stays healthy, wins homecoming and beats Vandy, then develop during bowl practices. Smart has recruited UGA into a monster. The formula to beat them involves bringing in more of the good ingredients.
UT's redzone defense has been a welcome mat, so UGA won't need the tricks (ask USCjr). Hope they try all the trick plays in the world though.
so basically, play perfectly and hope they don't...I won't be happy with a loss, but I can still be happy if the Vols compete for 4 quarters. Beating Vegas is acceptable this year. Stay healthy. Beat Vandy and win a bowl game.
