Tennessee fans call for Vols to start Nico Iamaleava over Joe Milton in 2nd half
Tennessee has looked all sorts of discombobulated to start against the Florida Gators.
Florida has controlled the line of scrimmage all game and Tennessee QB Joe Milton has looked less than ideal to start out. It’s hard to put too much on Milton for this performance, but it’s still plenty clear: Tennessee needs a change of pace on offense.
Vols fans have a solution: Bench Milton for 5-star freshman Nico Iamaleava.
Iamaleava was one of the top prospects in the Class of 2023 and committed to the Vols out of California. He’s looked good in practice and was instantly named Milton’s No. 2 at the start of the season, though he’s played only sparingly in blowout wins.
See what some Vols fans had to say following an ugly first quarter:
Time for Nico Iamaleava

What is happening? Running it on 3 and 20? Bring Nico out after halftime

Tennessee needs to go to Nico. Play for the future at this point. You’re not winning anything with Milton at QB

I wanna see Nico…. F*** it

U know how sick I’d be if I was a Tennessee fan knowing Nico is on the bench

Joe Milton is trash. This “give don’t break” defense is trash. The tackling is trash. All around tennessee is trash once again for 19 out of the last 20 years. Absolutely pathetic. Bench Milton and put in Nico. Idgaf if they lose by 100.

So when is it Nico time Tennessee?

Michigan knew he wasn’t the answer, Tennessee knew last yr when Hooker beat him out so now just play Nico give him some experience
