Good Morning, My Friends,

At one-point last night I thought, “Where is the weather delay when you need it?”. When you lose the turnover battle you usually lose the game, when you lose the field position game you usually lose the game. The Vols lost both of those areas in a big way and they lost them repeatedly the entire game. The Vol game execution was ugly due to missed assignments as the game started and stayed ugly in that way.

The Vol Offense turned the ball over and did that giving the Gators great field position. The Gator DL/defense made big plays because of missed blocks and blown assignments by Vol blockers. When the Vols made their blocks, they handled the Gator DL. The TE/FB had a hard day blocking. The key failure was lack of consistency in execution.

All year the Gator’s offense has been fueled by their defense and special teams. This game was the same way, their Special Teams and Defense set their offense up.

It was clear that Jeremy was not a happy camper. Not a lot of smiles on the sideline and that sums up the game.

A few points in my opinion, JG is one tough kid. The Vols did not quit on either side of the ball. The Vols can learn from this game just as the Gators learned from their loss to Kentucky last week. Over the last two weeks I have been able to watch each of the SEC teams that remain on the Vol’s schedule and there is not a “Gimme” on that list. As of today, I do not think that the Vols would be favored in any SEC game left on their schedule. I watched some of the WV game against K State yesterday and they had their way with KSU.

I have not given up on this team nor the coaches, but they are in for a yearlong fight. Their game next week at Athens with the Dawgs is really going to be ROUGH and TOUGH. They beat the C… out of Mizzou in Columbia. That game was ugly, and they manhandled the Mizzou QB and his passing game. They are better on both sides of the ball then the Gators.

Enough said! Go Vols, get them Dawgs!!

A painful note day. On SEC Today, one of the guys (I think Gene Chezic) said that he thought that the Dawgs would load the box to take away the Vol Running Game and make JG beat them with the pass. He was right. There was always one more Ga Player in the box then we had blockers and they were coming every down.

It has been a busy week and the weekend promises to be hectic. Everyone enjoyed last week’s success and it was on to Georgia on Sunday. The Vols improved in every area against Mizzou except on Special Teams with another missed FG attempt.

On to a review of the Vol’s game. The first note was that 14 Freshmen played and with that they had made the 70-man travel squad. That they made the travel squad and played reflects upon those kids’ talent, playing gave them experience which is the second major factor in player development.

It has been a LONGGGGG Time since the last game. And to tell the truth, most of the time due to the Virus, nothing to talk about. The Vols head to Columbia today to play the Gamecocks on Saturday. I guess this will be about how things look for the team and where I think they are as they get on the plane. There are a lot of things we can say, “This looks like, but we will have to see the game’s results.”
