The hit of the night –

I believe there was an orange mouth piece laying on the ground somewhere…..
Orange mouthpiece or orange teeth?
Tooth. Can’t lose more than the one he has.
You know Tennessee players don’t have teeth.
Hey now, most of those players are from Georgia.
That was a helluva a catch, if it rattles you enough to knock out the mouthpiece, but you hold on. Nice catch.
I was just about say that. Credit where credit’s due. Amazing that he held onto that.
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.
Here, here. Thomas has become a honey badger.
I need someone new to make fun of. A Dan Inman if you will.
Yes. In my mind, Thomas, not Samuel, is the #2 back.
I think that actually reflects the playing Time. Plus Thomas is a hell of a blocker.
Can someone please explain Honey Badger?
That really cracked me up.
I love how the honey badger eats a Cobra and passes out, wakes up, and resumes its eating.
Hahahahaha…Cuz honey badger don’t give a shit. He’s so badass that branden smith
Shouldn’t Honey Badger be in the lexicon?
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?
Wow. UT looked great in those highlights. Too bad they lost. lol
3/4 of the highlights profiled their TE, Rivera. Shades of Boise.
Can we learn to contain this type of obvious underneath threat?
I hope so, because Weis at Florida will be running those routes with Demps and Rainey, which will be deadly.
Shouldn’t there have been a personal foul called on Da’Rick for tossing the ball at Smith?
If by contain you mean hold the other team to 12 points inclding zero passing touchdowns, I’d say yes, we defintiely can learn. 😉
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?)
Damn. Would have liked them to have Bray in there when they play the Cocks 10/29.
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
And Carlton Thomas
