    I believe there was an orange mouth piece laying on the ground somewhere…..

    That was a helluva a catch, if it rattles you enough to knock out the mouthpiece, but you hold on. Nice catch.

    Unfortunately, it hurt #1 more than it hurt #21.

    Couldn’t have happened to a better Vol than D’Rick.

    Great hit! However the result was still a critical 1st down. Am I mistaken, or was that not on 4th down? Nice hit though.

    anyone know what happened to Da_Ricks sidekick – the one that packaged w him to UT ?

      Pretty sure he was a QB. I would say he is prob. riding the pine around 3-4 on the DC.
      Whatever, I’ll take the receivers we got. Bennett and Mitchell are going to be good over the next few years. Add that to the 10 TEs we got and we are good.

        Actually, word on the street is that Mr. Nash Nance will soon be transferring to an Ivy League school.

        Don’t forget about Chris Connelly. And even though he’s redshirting they really like Justin Scott-Wesley.


    I still can’t believe that came from Branden Smith, of all people. That kid is mighty mouse. I might add, Carleton Thomas, all 175-ish pounds of him ran like like a miniature train last night. I’ve become very impressed with him this season.

    Can someone please explain Honey Badger?

  10. The only important stat for Rogers is he is 0-2 in this series when he could be 2-0 had he chosen wisely.

    anyone know when the hit happened or have a clip?

    The other knock gave Tyler Bray a confirmed broken thumb and he’s out for 4-6 weeks. Sucks to be a Vol today. (well, when doesn’t it?)

    Branden Smith has really improved his physicality this year; he’s hitting much harder. He, Murray, and Boykin seem to have really benefitted from the new strength program
