Been waiting for a game like this for a while.
It wouldn't have mattered if Bama's defense just stood in place and reached their arms out. UT's offense would stall on a clump of grass often enough to lose a shootout . UT wasn't stopping anything Bama did . Until they make some key personnel changes, they will struggle with everybody they play for the rest of the season. The Georgia game broke their spirit. The UT team that left the field leading that game at half time died in the locker room and was replaced with something else.
I don't think anyone really is proclaiming UT as contenders . The most optimistic UT biased people are just saying they're no longer and automatic win and blowout prone. Given how bad UT was just 12 months ago, that's a pretty dramatic rise. I'm happy to see them get up off the floor and bring some nostalgia back. Miami too. I'd love to see the days of Miami, Michigan, FSU, UF, Nebraska , USC , and UT being in the mix. Bored as hell of just Alabama and Clemson. Nobody in their right mind would say UT WILL beat Georgia right now. It'd be cool if they do though.
UT has enough to knock UGA on their butts a few times, but they aren't hanging for 60 mins. Just too much depth on the UGA bench still.
LSU is going to drag us around town square in our underwear. The first week for LSU was a lot of new faces getting ambushed by a firing squad. It will be a different team we face unfortunately.
yeh UT won't beat UGA playing not to lose. They'll have to keep pressure on for 4 full qtrs to pull this one off.
That's kinda how I see it. UT will make a game of it until Georgia's depth on D starts causing problems in the 4th . Close for 3 qtrs and UGA pulls away in the last 10 mins.
You're probably right about winning the LoS . If their qb wets the bed , or is running for his life, Georgia jogs away with it by the middle of the 3rd qtr. If UT manages to push your NFL DL around, it will get interesting. Their backs aren't Nick Chubbs, but they're good enough .
The vols might have the talent to be a top 10 team this year , but they aren't all on the same page . If they get it together and use their strengths to their advantage, they'll be a dangerous team. They looked poorly prepared against an outmatched team though. No logical reason to have been one snap from losing to Muschamp.
If UT could get out of their own way, I'd say it's possible. No way though. They looked for real one minute and horrible the next. It's gonna be a game.
I've seen Cade Mays enough to know he will be a big shot in the arm of their running game. I don't expect to get ran over and dragged down the field, but they'll probably control the game if they keep it on the ground. It won't be a blowout though , because their team looked pretty undisciplined against USCe. If they try letting their QB come out throwing bombs , I like our chances. 24-17 UT
I didn't watch that game, but I would have publically trashed on them too for getting pushed around by Ga.State. There's no excuse for any SEC team to lose like that. He was probably tired of apologizing for that kind of horse crap.
Ok it was a gross exaggeration and not based on fact . There was an underlying point , but you are right. My little brother comment might have been a little off base . My apologies .
They're so beaten down and tired of the previous few coaches that it's probably hard to not be optimistic. You can't really fault their excitement. Yes, they have a ways to go to be in the same league as UGA in any aspect of recruiting , but they're definitely coming. I think the writing is on the wall and that's why you see the top teams suddenly making sure everyone knows the score vs UT. It's a similar feeling to Oklahoma at the end of the 90s . They crept up from being terrible , to being somewhat competitive , to all the sudden in the 2000 season they laid waste to #11 Texas ,#2 K-State , and #1 Nebraska in a 3 week span, very loudly announcing their arrival. I feel like that's going to be UT within the next 2-3 years.
It goes both ways. You can't go 3 posts in any topic without a UT fan mentioning "the time they beat Florida" , which comes off as little brother syndrome, but it's hard to ignore the fact that UT is gaining ground in their development and UF is clearly concerned. You don't see UT sports guys making post after post about Kentucky. UGA and UF both seem to have UT on their minds a LOT. They're starting to worry whether they'll admit it or not.
He'd probably do well in any system, but honestly he'd probably be wasted at a school like UT. They need a big nasty RB and a strong blocking FB . Someone like Harrison Bailey or that USC transfer (JT Daniels) would be more their speed. Oklahoma is a good fit for him or go to somewhere like UCLA and get Chip Kelly's wagon rolling.
My first reaction is "a couple 5 stars a few 4 stars and a bunch of 3s , but one thing that's a little different is Pruitt recruits to his template, not 247, Rivals, etc. He learned a lot under Propst and later Saban. My guess is half of those 3s get a bump before year's end.
Uga has recruited at the highest level for a long time. They also have the obvious benefit of in state talent that rivals most anyone in the country. You have to really suck to not be able to recruit a top 5 class at Georgia. The problem for UGA is Dan Mullen and Jeremy Pruitt are both capable of recruiting right with him and both might be better coaches when all else is equal.
Mack Brown is a force and will have UNC all up in the face of everyone soon. Pruitt is another that will start making some waves soon. The pecking order will change soon and I'm glad to see it. CFB has become a little stale , but times are changing . If Smart doesn't poop soon he's going to get knocked off the pot.
When you're at their stadium you almost feel bad for their less rabid fans because their vocal half are straight up mouth breathers. It's like having to take "that cousin" out in public that doesn't know how to intereact with other humans. They will have to learn to lose gracefully before they will ever be happy with anything. I think that's why their coach was settled on leaving. He knows all it will take is the next 7 or 8 loss season and their torches will start lighting up.
As he pointed out, they had a comfortable lead on everyone else in wins , so why not? Sucks for his players to work hard only to have figure heads yank the rug out from under them.
Dabo had better learn from Rich Rod and stay where things are good. There is no logical reason for him to go to Bama after Saban retires.
My unbiased top 3 destinations for Hurts would be 1. Nebraska 2.UCLA 3. Oklahoma He could make serious waves at any of those places and not have the external pressures he would have at other places.
At first I was kind of like...you waited 2 months to hire Jim Chaney? But I guess it's actually pretty smart. He has proven reliable, competent, and adaptive. There were better xs and os candidates available, but they were all gambles in the climate of the SEC . Good hire Vols and despite what the neighboring fans want to say, Kirby Smart didn't bring him along because he wanted to lose.
Nobody should take me seriously, as I am not on the field, but one serious matter was how many times Tennessee spanked your teams' yappin butts when it was "your year " .
Georgia fans have some very short memories. Or maybe you've been a fan for all of 3 or 4 years?
I don't understand why nobody has hired him. I'd take him anyday over half the top 25 .
