Hey, he said it, not me.

Former Tennessee wide receiver Josh Briscoe, on why the Clawfense crashed with such a resounding thud:

“… It was too much thinking going on instead of just playing ball.

“We had to do a lot more thinking as a whole. We weren’t able to go out and just play as much.”

There’s an old cliché about not being paid to think that comes to mind here.  Along with several other not so flattering comments that I won’t express.

But I will share Briscoe’s sentiments about his former offensive coordinator’s ability to land a head coaching job after everything blew up in Knoxville.

Briscoe was asked if he was surprised that after the way the offense performed, Clawson got a better job.

“I don’t think ‘surprised’ is the word,” he said. “He must be a great interviewer.”

    One thing I think we can all agree on, Tennessee sucks deez nutts.

  2. Ouch, that is rough.

    You know, sometimes I have thought that the Georgia offense can make players a bit too robotic. Too focused on making the right decision that they lose sight on just playing ball and making plays.

    Also, having such a complex system can keep you from just feeding the ball to the guy who just “has it” that afternoon.

    Nothing like the Tennessee debacle, but I’m just sayin’.
