- Strap yourself to a tree with roots. Butch Jones, on his defensive staff: “You kind of have a coaching tree. Whether it’s coach Martinez or [Jancek], it stems to Brian VanGorder who was also the defensive coordinator at Georgia. I’ve known those individuals forever.”
- SEC speed. On defense, the Vols have introduced a 3-3-5 look on obvious passing downs. Given Georgia’s offensive line’s struggles with speed rushers, this might be something to keep an eye on Saturday.
- Pace. I’d expect Tennessee when it’s on offense to try to exploit Georgia’s problem communicating defensive signals quickly.
- UT offense. You’ll find some information about the players and the Vols’ tendencies on offense here. (One thing to add is that Marlon Lane is banged up.)
