  10. OK @LAVol and @realdill777 One more day so one last friendly reminder. Get your total points post in here so I can have it to determine a winner.
  11. This is not some hate on Bama but I find it strange how Minnesota is not above them at 9-0. Look I get it. I know Minnesota doesn't have much history but if we are truly looking at the teams with the best resumes for this current season how is a team with one loss and the best they have beaten is a mediocre A&M team better than an undefeated team that just beat a top 10 team?

  20. Something to think about........................... With lots of rumored coaching changes, Tennessee football’s 2020 schedule provides the Volunteers a chance to cash in on lots of potential attrition. Over the weekend, the Arkansas Razorbacks fired head coach Chad Morris. So chalk 2020 up to another rebuilding year for them. They also just happen to be the team that Tennessee football draws from the SEC West as well. Talk about a break! And it’s not the only one. The Vols also may benefit from the South Carolina Gamecocks, Kentucky Wildcats and Vanderbilt Commodores all undergoing coaching changes as well. Let’s explain. Vanderbilt and South Carolina should both be putting Derek Mason and Will Muschamp on the hot seat. The Commodores are worse now than they were in 2014, when Mason took over, and with no bowl game in sight, it’s very possible Vandy gets rid of him at the end of the year. Muschamp likely had bought some good will. But his only good season in Columbia was when he cashed in on Tennessee football and the Florida Gators undergoing significant attrition, and a loss to the Appalachian State Mountaineers this year was one of two non-conference losses that will cost his team a bowl game. So he could be gone as well. Meanwhile, Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops, despite being 4-5, has done a superb job in a rebuilding season with the Wildcats given all the injuries. His final three games at Vanderbilt, at home against UT Martin and at home against the Louisville Cardinals could get this team to 7-5. If that happens and the Deion Sanders hire falls through, the Florida State Seminoles could be calling Stoops at the end of the year. Heck, even if Sanders is hired, there’s a chance Stoops gets a head coaching job at a better program in Kentucky. Either way, Tennessee football could cash in on all three schools plus the Hogs undergoing coaching changes. Vanderbilt, South Carolina and Arkansas are clear ones. And then there’s the non-conference schedule. With Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray both starting in the pros and the chance for Jalen Hurts to do the same, at some point, teams could take a look at Lincoln Riley. If he leaves, that’s the perfect time for Tennessee football to face the Oklahoma Sooners, even if if is on the road. The Charlotte 49ers, Troy Trojans and Furman Paladins at home are the other three non-conference games. But Oklahoma and Kentucky are wishful thinking. Arkansas has already happened. Vanderbilt is going to happen. South Carolina has a very good chance of happening. Meanwhile, the Missouri Tigers head to Knoxville and will have to start a new quarterback again. And even if Stoops stays, Kentucky heads to Knoxville as well. So assuming they don’t do what they did this year and collapse against Group of Five teams at home early, that should put seven wins on the table automatically next year and probably eight. Oklahoma, if they do undergo a coaching change, could give the Vols a real shot at nine wins.

  21. Recruiting is big as we all know. You need the talent to succeed but I will stick by the premise I have said all along. While recruiting is important coaching is just as important. Chris Peterson won at Boise State with an average recruiting class ranking in the mid 50's. Not top 10 Not even top 20. Boise State did this while beating teams like Oregon, Oklahoma and even Georgia. So I guess what I am saying is if you have a good staff who can develop I would rather have a fair to above average recruiting class but not top 10 required type recruiting with great development coaches which I think Pruitt is, than a top 10 ranking recruiting and watching them fail because they cannot develop and coach worth a crap (See Butch Jones)
  22. OK how bout the rest of you? @TecVol @LAVol @realdill777
  23. LEXINGTON, Ky. – Tennessee is one win away from bowl eligibility. The Vols continued their season-saving turnaround with a 17-13 comeback victory over Kentucky on Saturday night at Kroger Field. Tennessee's defense did not allow any points in the second half, and quarterback Jarrett Guarantano fueled a rally off the bench after the Vols (5-5, 3-3 SEC) trailed by 10 points at halftime. Ja'Quain Blakely stopped Kentucky quarterback Lynn Bowden Jr. for no gain on fourth-and-2 with 1:17 remaining to seal the victory. Tennessee needs only to beat Missouri or Vanderbilt to earn bowl eligibility for the first time since the 2016 season. A bowl hardly seemed like a realistic conclusion to this season after Tennessee opened the year with a stunning loss to Georgia State en route to a 1-4 start. The Vols have won three in a row. Kentucky (4-5, 2-5) fizzled after a dominant first quarter. Here are five things we learned. Tennessee’s supplied three clutch stops in the second half. Matthew Butler sacked Lynn Bowden Jr. on a fourth-and-6 from Tennessee’s 32-yard line in the third quarter. Midway through the fourth quarter, the Wildcats had fourth-and-3 from the UT 38. Bowden threw an incompletion. Ty Chandler fumbled on the next play, giving Kentucky possession at Tennessee's 45-yard line. The defense held firm again. The Wildcats reached the 1-yard line before Henry To'o To'o stuffed Chris Rodriguez for a 1-yard loss on third down. Then Blakely kept Bowden from gaining any traction on a speed option run. Coach Jeremy Pruitt decided to make a quarterback change with the Vols trailing 13-3 at halftime, turning to veteran Jarrett Guarantano after freshman Brian Maurer started for the fourth time this season. Guarantano led Tennessee on back-to-back touchdown drives to start the second half. Marquez Callaway and Josh Palmer each made challenging touchdown catches on fade routes. Guarantano has appeared in relief in victories over Mississippi State, South Carolina and UAB. Given how well he played Saturday, Pruitt might need to reconsider Guarantano for the starting job. Guarantano, who has 22 career starts, hasn’t started since a Sept. 21 loss to Florida. Guarantano was 7-of-8 passing against the Wildcats for 115 yards. He added 30 rushing yards. Maurer completed 7 of 16 passes in the first half for 98 yards. Maurer played for the first time since an Oct. 19 game against Alabama, when he suffered a concussion for the second straight game. Tennessee trailed 13-0, and it had snapped just three offensive plays. Kentucky started the game with a 17-play, 75-yard drive that chewed up 10 minutes, 18 seconds. The Wildcats had 15 runs and two passes during the drive. The Vols followed with a three-and-out. Punter Paxton Brooks dropped a snap, and Josh Paschal blocked the punt. Two players later, the Wildcats were in the end zone with their second touchdown. Bowden was trying to become the second Kentucky wide receiver-turned-quarterback to lead the Wildcats to a victory over Tennessee this decade. Matt Roark played that role in UK’s 10-7 victory in 2011. Like Roark, Bowden is a former high school quarterback. He showed his speed and elusiveness as a runner on speed option plays and scrambles from the pocket. Bowden rushed for 114 yards on 24 carries, leading a Kentucky ground attack that amassed 302 yards. However, Bowden didn't pose much of a passing threat – he completed 4 of 7 passes with an interception – and at times Kentucky’s offense was exposed as a one-trick pony. The Vols’ defense got sucked in expecting a run when Bowden floated a pass to tight end Justin Rigg during the second quarter. A good throw would have resulted in a touchdown and a 20-3 lead. Bowden underthrew Rigg, and Nigel Warrior intercepted the pass. Warrior raced down the field into the end zone, but a video review showed he stepped out of bounds at UT’s 46-yard line. Tennessee 17, Kentucky 13: Jarrett Guarantano, Vols defense deliver comeback win WWW.KNOXNEWS.COM Tennessee is one win away from a bowl bid after beating Kentucky 17-13 on Saturday night. The Vols couldn’t convert the turnover into points, logging its third three-and-out on five first-half possessions.
