Went to Tennessee because of family pressure, his dad and uncle were both big time players there.
If it was up to him alone, he most likely would have gone to Arizona and been the best recruit in school history. I'm still holding out hope he changes his mind by signing day, but I know that's not likely
Lol what a load of crap. He was heavily recruited and was UT's number one target. Someone's butthurt.
"He definitely didn’t steer me to do anything that I didn’t want to do. And he even said a couple days before (I announced), ‘Hey, you’re really sure it’s not Arizona? It’s not any of these other schools?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, Dad. I’m all Vol.’"
Utah State (W): The Aggies were a solid team last year and probably would have beaten us, but they lose a ton of experience on both sides of the ball. This one will be uncomfortable, but the Vols find a way to get it done.
Arkansas State (W): Won their bowl game last year and are apparently a hot bed of future coaching talent. That being said, the Vols talent wins out in the end, but it's another close one.
Oklahoma (L): I think this is an old fashioned drubbing. Oklahoma riding the high of beating the piss out of Bama and Stoops' weird vendetta against the SEC. Their talent wins out here.
Georgia (W): Murray is finally out at UGA. While they have a stellar backfield, I think the inexperience at QB and defense plays a huge factor and we lost the game by only an inch last season.
Florida (L): Because that's just what the Vols do against the Gators, no matter the scenario. The only bright spot is that it's in Neyland.
Chattanooga (W): Handily defeat the Mocs.
Ole Miss (L): I think this will be a great game, with young talent on display for both teams. I think Ole Miss slightly edges UT here.
Alabama (L): Another year, another loss, but I see the series turning in our favor soon.
South Carolina (L): South Carolina wants vengeance for us ruining their championship run last season and the game being in Columbia will play a big factor.
Kentucky (W): We own Kentucky in football. Look it up.
Missouri (W): The Vols get vengeance from last year's terrible performance.
Vanderbilt (W): Franklin is gone and Vandy is going back to being the Vandy of old.
Improvement shown, a bowl game and the Vol faithful have hope for the future!
That was rough. Panthers played great....but losing Vernon Davis, Eric Reid, and Ray McDonald didn't help.
I knew the 49ers probably wouldn't score another point when Vernon walked off the field. He is their only real threat. As soon as he was gone all the Panthers had to do was double Boldin and it's pretty much over.
Great pass rush by Carolina. Kap under pressure all day. Nobody getting open. Looked like the Colts game. When Vernon goes down....their passing game is toast. What do the 3 49er losses all have in common? Vernon hurt during the game or didn't play at all due to injury.
I don't want to make excuses so sorry if this comes off as that. Carolina played fantastic on D. I don't want to take anything away from that...but Vernon getting hurt was HUGE. Astronomical.
Gratz on the win. I think you'll end up taking the division.
We have a DT playing RG. Your injury argument is invalid.
