If TN's defense is the slightest bit better...the vols will win by 10 or more. Florida has no QB and so many players out. This looks ugly for the gators. If florida doesn't force at least 2 turnovers they will not win.
Ummmm he's gotten a little better...there is some truth to that though.
I died XD
I got chills...no I really did. That was great. Mann Florida and TN used to be the titans of the SEC and the country. 2014-15 losses to Florida ripped my heart out. I almost cried last year to be honest. This is such a good rivalry. Fantastic article.
They wont beat the hogs? What?
The flag may have been uncalled for but...it was pretty awesome. Way to spark a rivalry.
To be honest I was wondering how many people would jump on that comment. I wasn't serious. Just onw person's life is way more valuable than all of football and a whole lot more. This time is extremely important. They made the right call.
I tried to look it up it's been a long time. TN's offense is gonna be rolling in the swamp. If UF doesn't put together an offense they will drop the 2nd game as well. Sure Florida has a great defense but no defense can stop a half way decent offense all of the time. Plus Uf has a lot of starters suspended. Florida's chances don't look good this year so far.
I'm a Vol and love the SEC. So when the SEC is playing against other conference teams "It's all about the south." This is where the gods of football come to play. Auburn...beat the crap out of Clemson! What the heck is Mizzou doing in the SEC? I don't understand they're not southern nor are they in the east. Plus they suck worse than Vandy which is quite a statement. They aren't good enough consitently to play here.
Wow, again...Florida gets more rest. Florida better fix their offense before they play TN. If they don't Dormady will run up the score while Florida still looks for their first offensive TD.
TN will get there in December. Florida won't. Dormandy will be throwing bombs in the swamp...the vols will leave there in victory.
I hate FSU they always get so lucky against the SEC for some reason. I hope Bama smashes them. I think you are right. Purdue beats Mizzou. Why is MIzzou in the SEC? They aren't in the east and they aren't southern...and they aren't good enough to play in the SEC...why are they here? They need to go back to the big 10 losers conference. Also why does UGA get into the top 15 almost every year and they never preform...every single year.
I'm not concerned for TN's QB situation...both QB's are great and won't screw the ofense up. I am aware that they haven't had much playing time. Tennessee's biggest concerns in my opinion are the OL and the secondary. Alabama will not have problems without Lame Chicken. They just won't...Saban is the god of college football right now. Jake Bentley and Nick fitsijewjewy...whatever...aren't going to play as well as everyone thinks they are. Florida will be fine without their star reciever. Why does Georgia get into the top 15 every year and they never preform? It happens every year almost...
Florida has no chance. If Washington plays Bama (which I doubt will happen unless the play off voters aren't thinking and let Washington in) in the playoff, Alabama will beat them by at least 30 points. Florida will lose by at least 11. Nick Saban is the god of College football right now, he does not lose. He's like Donald Trump...ole Nick always wins.
A&M has a chance. If ya'll can give Knight more than 2 seconds to drop back and throw the ball unlike TN ya'll have a chance. Alabama is not the god of college football, just don't try and beat them at their own game. I don't think a&m will pull it off but of ya'll do, we'll see you in Atlanta. Good luck.
I was wrong Tennessee did not play like Tennessee today.
This game is going to be extremely close. Yes Alabama should win this game but it will not be easy. On paper bama beats the vols....blah blah blah. Again The tide should come out on top but put stats and recent games behind that. This used to be the biggest rivalry in college football...over the past decade it has faded do to TN's poor football seasons. It is finally becoming relavent again and this will be an emotional game for both teams...more for the vols though. Tennessee will be playing for their lives and Alabama not quite so much, a loss to TN...so what, bama still controls their own destiny. This will be close game and it will come down honestly to who ever wants the game more. If Tennessee can hold on to the football, the vols will win this game.
Both secondary defenses for both bama and the vols are rough. This could be a game that is decided for who can defend the deep ball better. Tennessee has been awful in preventing the deep pass, bama has also struggled. This game will be close and it will be a good test for Jalen Hurts to play the most intense road game yet. I'm very impressed with his playing level as a freshman he will be hard to defend. We'll see what he is made of tomorrow and we'll see if Jalen Hurts Tennessee.
Invalid? XD Bro do you even pay attention to college football media? It's everywhere Tennesse beat themselves last Saturday and you know it. That's why Tennessee didn't drop a single spot in the AP poll because they know Tennessee is for real and headed to Atlanta to win the SEC. We will see what happens Saturday against bama and you will see who the best teams in the SEC are.
Okay lets get something straight. I said we can play with bama if we play a clean game. IF IF IF. It's true and ya'll know it. Alabama is a great team, and it will be very touch for the vols to over come the tide. Tennesse can beat the tide, it's less likely but it's the greatest thing on the planet- it's college football anything can happen. I will come back and eat my words on this page if we lose...but I think Tennessee is going to pull this one out.
Let me remind you guys, I said TN is right there with alabama without all of the turnovers. @Bill, get realistic for one second. A&M better than TN and second in the SEC? What? A team that barely escaped in double OT at home from a team that committed 7 turnovers. That doesn't sound like a good football team to me. Western Kentucky would put away anybody if the other team committed 7 turnovers. No disrespect but that is absolutely bogus to say A&M is the second best team in the SEC.
Yes Alabama should be the favorite in this game. However, Tennessee I can almost promise you after last week will hardly commit any turnovers in saturday's game. Tennessee and Alabama are clearly the best teams in the SEC and in my opinion (even the vols) are the best 2 teams in the country. If TN holds on to the ball and plays football like they know how, TN could very well walk away with a victory over the tide. Alabama needs to play above average to shut the door on TN. The tide is the most fundamentally sound football team on the planet, Saban is a genius and should be able to get his boys to play above average. This game is very evenly matched and this going to be one of the best 3rd Saturdays in October in college football history.
For everyone who's fighting about TN and Ole Miss, in my opinion Ole miss is better than Bamma. Ole miss found a way to lose that game and they just choked agaist Florida State. Although I'd probably pick TN slightly over the Rebels, as a TN fan I would be worried to play Ole Miss. @Volman, dude get some sense and don't be a jerk...Ole Miss is is an amazing team and so is Tennessee. Tennessee is going to be beat Bamma. Also, I hope you guys realize TN is far better than the Aggies. The vols turn overs costed them 21 points, without the mistakes which are done and past us TN AND Ole Miss are amoung the top 4 teams in th country.
