Rocky Road Ahead?

A new season and another new coach. Most think Tennessee will struggle this year and rightfully so. After another coaching change and more player attrition it would be safe to say even if none of the above happened with a new qb and offensive line most would be concerned about this season. I would be lying if I said that I was not concerned but some things do look promising.

Tauren Poole seems to be a great running back. He probably should have had more carries last year but he was stuck behind Bryce Brown on the depth chart mainly because Lane Kiffin wanted his new recruit (Brown)to be happy. The new head coach (Dooley) and renewed competition may have been a factor in Brown's departure. The O line is all new but during the off season they have really worked together to become a cohesive unit. I am also interested to see what our D can do under new defensive coordinator fro Boise State, Justin Wilcox. Lastly, Matt Simms is an unknown at qb but has reportedly been very impressive as of late in practice. Nothing much will be learned this week as the Vols open against UT Martin, but next week will be crucial when Oregon comes to Knoxville.

  1. Can I say how much I've enjoyed reviewing the website I know most of y'all know how much I abhor Tennessee, but it has grown to be a favorite website of mine! Mind you, I don't think there's ever been an article on the site related to football, but I have enjoyed the links thoroughly!

    I understand how the site has received over 5 million hits...for those of you who haven't seen the site, it has more to do with NSFW TnA than anything about football. I also don't understand the author of the site. He seems to be more of a West Virginia fan than a Tenn fan. Oh well, just another piece of ammo with which to make fun of Tenn!

    If you haven't done so already, pop over and check out the "football" sight loserswithsocks. You'll have a great time, especially if you're by yourself! lol, j/k
