Jay- nice job on answering our questions ! . . . .What would sports be without debates on blogs, radio shows, barrooms, etc . . .You did better than Jimbo Fisher did this week answering questions at the B'Ham QB Club
Just for info. Mercer in Macon, Georgia had 9,300 for their home game last saturday vs. Western Carolina at 1 pm, with Georgia on TV at about the same time
i dont like 12 noon starting times for Moc games, i think it hurts our crowd. It also hurts tailgating. It doesnt give my crew suffient time to get hydrated at tailgate that early
The Mocs game Saturday could be interesting. Mercer has improved and Bobby Lamb ( head coach ) has alot of SoCon experience. Jay- how do you think with Keon Williams healthy, the great game by Derrick Crane and with Bagley playing well AND Jacob Huesman running well, do you think the carries would or should be divided ?
Intersting hire for Florida would be Lane Kiffin ( why not ? ). . . .Speaking of Kiffin, it is amazing that Vol fans have such hatred for the last coach in a decade to give them a winning record. Same with Counzo Martin, took them to sweet 16 and Vol fans hated him. . .but they LOVE a coach, Butchy who if he only beats Ky and Vandy this year will have a 10-14 first 2 year record, Dooley's regular season record first 2 years was 11-13 ?
Its also funny that UTK hates the only coach that has given them a winning season in the last 10 years . . . .
Very interesting stat - IF UTK Vols only beat Ky and Vandy on their remaining games, then Butchy will be 10-14 in his first 2 years regular season. Dooley was 11-13 in his first 2 regular seasons. However, Butch Jones is 2-0 in slogans and recruiting rankings . . . . .and did you know that Tennessee is the only team in America that plays freshmen ?
And, what about Archie Manning excusing himself from the playoff selection committee, mid season ? no plans to replace him. hate to lose someone that is NOT employed by a school or conference to that selection committee
Winners- The Mocs played a perfect first half and went on to beat The Citadel 34-14 ON THE ROAD, same Citadel team that lost AT Florida St. 37-12..Peyton Manning, the New Orleans native, setting the TD record.. . .Georgia, proving they can win big, again without entrepeneur Gurley . . .LOSERS - you are right, Jay, Vols offense has scored 0 TD's in their last 8 SEC quarters. Funny how fans are blaming UTK offensive coordinator, and yet Butchy appears to be Teflon Coach ? Vols complaining ( and your own Patrick Brown ) that Ole Miss should not have scored a TD late in 4th quarter and should have gone to a knee, yet UTK did the same thing to Chattanooga the week before and no one made mention, i guess what goes aroung comes around.. . . Also have you seen video of UTK assistant coach purposely trip Ole Miss player Sanquez Golson, now that is classless.. . .Mushchamp, dead man walking
Im not "taking a shot", Manning's accomplishments are great, however Moctastic is correct, 16 games plus rule changes have helped him be a stat-machine. You cant overlook his failure in playoffs and Super Bowls. and if you want to judge him on stats then the 24 playoff interceptions and 10-12 playoff record and bad Super Bowl performances have to be judged. I know we all love the New Orleans native, since he played at UTK, but Brady and Montana just perform better in the big games
