  1. In order to have a chance, or even compete with Alabama the Vols will have to play to win, and make the plays to win. All the way downstream from the top. We can't grind out any bruise-fest ballgame with Alabama, they need to be chasing after us. The only way that's going to happen is opening something up because what I've seen so far ain't it. Bama's good enough, they don't need any help from us. So we need to stop beating ourselves, get back to no turnovers. Another thing on all of those damn interceptions. I can't remember seeing one of our receivers do anything but run and act like the balls coming right to them. Now to be fair, there's been a couple wild looking throws. But guys need to start helping our QB out. More than once an interception happened because while our guy was standing flat footed, the defenseive player was the one that went up and got the ball. Or otherwise made the move that meant the catch. At least interfere, something, shit. Anyway, it caught my eye and I started noticing. Need to fix that quick. This week would be good. And somebody please cover the slants. Good grief, our LB's are suckers for play action. Everybody's running slant passes now, including Alabama. Regular part of their passing game, and we're going to have to defend it by not leaving the middle of the field wide open. Better than we have been, get some bodies in the passing lanes and let the DB's do their job. But what I wanted to tell you is, they're going to kill us after halftime. Providing we make enough of a first half out it to get them out of their base defense. When Bama gets that exotic blitz going it's going to be two guys at a time. And nobody's blocked that shiet yet. Which, you know... I don't even want to talk about what's going to happen next.

    QB for Alabama game

    Yeah, he's peaked. I remember us talking about that last yr. I really wish that Shrout was more confidence inspiring. I do think that he'll be the first QB called upon if JG is pulled. Mauer has more PT, so I'd rather see him go in. Both will play before Baily. But now that I've said that, I wouldn't be surprised if he was first. JG will start the Bama game I'm afraid. I don't know what he holds over Pruitt's head, but it must be a doozy.
  3. I'm not exactly ready to get up and dance around the room myself. I'm not bought into Chaney and his same ol' same ol'. Gray with +100 yds in the 1st half? Why pass when your RB is on track to go 200 yds for the game? I'm running him until UK makes me change my mind. If I live to be 100 yrs old I'll never understand why Chaney wants to get away from whats working.
  4. UT's four turnovers allowed the Wildcats to carry a ten point lead into the locker room despite the Vols holding a 203 to 75 advantage in total yardage. Including 120-28 on the ground. Gray led all rushers in the first half with 101 of those yards on 18 carries.
  5. I'd rather have a keg than a six-pack.
  6. It won't be pretty. I predict half a hundred Butch Jones sightings. Maybe l'il Nicky will start subbing in the 3rd qtr. As always,
  7. JG doesn't impress me as an instinctive QB. He knows all the plays, he can make all the throws. And bless his heart, you know. During the Kentucky game...*sigh... he cocked to pass and fumbled when Chandler ran into him. On a called running play, Chandler was supposed to get the ball. But instead 'Tano decided to get all instinctive, go rouge (again), and attempt a pass without telling anybody. I imagine that Pruitt has already tore slabs offa JG's ass. I was going to say something about JG not having that instinctive QB's clock in his head. And sometimes he does hold on for too long. But that wasn't the case yesterday, too much edge pressure. Our returning o-linemen were getting beat.

    Covid Effect???

    Yeah, I went to sleep..
  9. In Tennessee's only touchdown drive, Gray and Chandler had all the yards. It was a 75 yard drive, 71 of them were on the ground. Even before that, the Vols were moving the ball on the ground every time until somebody, usually Guarantano, made a crucial mistake.

    If somebody told me that to start the 4th qtr the Vols would be 20 points behind I'd think they were drunk or stupid...
