Week 3 Intriguing Matchups

16 posts in this topic

I'm under no illusions that VT's front 7 is anything but very good. I think you guys have some weaknesses in your secondary, but that can be remedied with great pass rush and QB pressure.

I'm pretty confident in our O-Line, and I think our OC Watson is one of the 10 best in the country. He should have some nice wrinkles in place in case Lee is taking too much heat. In all honesty, I think this is our best offense since 2001 when Crouch won the Heisman. If we can run the ball, get TEs and WRs into the seams and take some pressure off Lee, we finally have the speed at WR with Paul and Gilleyen to take some shots downfield.

Like I said, our D-line, especially Suh, is very strong, and should be able to get to Taylor. The issue will be stopping him from taking off when he's outside of the pocket. I'm most worried about our LBs making tackles and not getting out of assignment when he does.

Cal - Minnesota - Upset Alert in Minneapolis. First big win in the new stadium.

Tulsa - Oklahoma - Golden Hurricane can score. Game has potential to be tight a lot longer than people think.

USC - Washington - Trojans would like to make ex-OC Sarkisian's start in Pac-10 play a bad one.

Arizona - Iowa -.This game could be a springboard for the winner's chances in their conference play.

UConn - Baylor - Robert Griffin's made Baylor a tough out. A 2-0 start and he may have them thinking bowl.

Texas Tech - Texas - Won't match last year's all-timer, but Tech will know where they stand.

Just list some games you are excited to see this weekend. Mine are...

Tennessee at Florida- Of course I want to see this because I want as many points scored against Kiffin who couldn't keep his mouth shut this offseason.

Florida State at BYU-Can BYU keep their BCS hopes alive?

Nebraska at Virginia Tech- Good ranked matchup. Good to see Nebraska back in national prominence.

Any others you guys are interested in?

I just don't understand this. Why has everyone been so up-in-arms over Kiffin's statements? When he said he'd be singing Rocky Top all night after beating Florida this year, he was obviously just trying to rally a room full of fans. What coach doesn't sell an idea like that to his players/fans? Kiffin's speech just got aired on every TV outlet in the world.

As for mentioning that Meyer had violated a recruiting rule by calling Nu'keese Richardson while he was on his official visit to Tennessee, he was again...talking to a room full of Tennessee fans. He was mistaken about the violation, but still, he hadn't even called to "report" Meyer. He was simply trying to motivate a depressed fanbase. Turns out, it isn't a RULE, it is just in bad taste to call a recruit while they are on a visit to another school.

Why is it so taboo to try and motivate your home fans? Get over it!

Now, on a separate note...Tennessee has a 0% chance of keeping this game close. Jonathan Crompton is simply the worst QB to EVER play at Tennessee. We have backups, but they won't throw them in for their first game against the best team in the country. I fear a brutal beat down this weekend. Tennesse should not throw the ball more than like five times in the entire game.

Not taboo at all. I just advise you keep your mouth shut about Florida. Especially a first year head coach with a less than average football team. He can say what he wants, he just needs to understand that Urban Meyer takes any extra motivation he can get to hang a lot of points on you. That is all.

    • I don't feel like we're a sleeper team. We are just mercurial as a franchise- up, down, and in the middle. I really do not know what to expect this year. As it's been said, the O-line is a big question mark. Our interior is good, but the tackle spot is a mystery. I wasn't and am still not high on the Lil Kalil signing, and not because of the contract. He has declined every year since his rookie year. Am I suppose to believe that he has really been chronically injured this whole time and now that he is here with Ryan he is suppose to magically be healthy and perform? I'm not saying it isn't possible- I'm not saying he's def going to suck either. I just have no clue. I think it's a big time gamble from Gman. I hope it works out. And I desperately want to be proved wrong about it too. I hope he fills the hole that's been there since Gross left as a long term solution. And the other thing that worries me that is the coaching staff. Everyone talks about Shula but I'm not high on RR. He took zero accountability in his post season presser- as apposed to Gman who acknowledged his mistakes. I've never really liked him- I'm really wondering if Riverboat was just fools gold. He just feels like Fox 2.0- don't think he can't get us a Lombardi- which is sad because I feel like our roster can. Again, I hope I'm wrong about this. These two things plus our division- The NFCS will be a dogfight this year. 
    • Yeah we fell asleep..the offensive like ducked and the secondary ducked til Bradbury and the other kid stepped up.. but season was done.. need a healthy o-Lind this year and execute or these new weapons are pointless
