Flickin’ the flea

A tale of two trick plays…

Tennessee called a flea flicker against ‘Bama.  One problem.

Meanwhile, Purdue ran a fake flea flicker, which is a fake… oh, never mind.  It kicked major ass.

Is this a metaphor for UT firing Booch and hiring Brohm?  Should it be?

    Hopefully Booch wins out and stays a few more years

    They are a well coached well disciplined team. Why would they want to fire Booch?

      You bet. You could tell by the way the WRs held their place at the line on a pass play. That not only takes discipline, but a plastic trashcan load of guts to boot. Ntw, the energy taken for the brain synapses on that play couldn’t light a firefly’s ass.

        Anyone can run a flea flicker where the receivers run patterns. Just imagine how much time UT spent during the bye week practicing the play. Their execution was flawless. Butch is a dead man walking.

    The fake one fits right into our repertoire.


    • Yes it does and given that we already have a run a flea flicker with Chubb as the back. Lineup with Chubb as the back, fake the flea flicker and it might be a TD.

    Can’t believe they went into the shotgun when they were inside of Bama’s one. They had 2 downs to make it….was just shaking my head. Then they had the 5 yard penalty. Think it is safe to say, they will clean house ….will more than likely wait until the end of the season.

    Booch said they were on the right track because they were improving. Wonder whose video he is watching?


  6. The Truth

    I’ve watched football a long time and maybe it just didn’t stick at the time, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a flea flicker where no receivers went downfield.


  7. Tennessee is a group of well-coached Champions of Life with five star hearts. There is no reason to fire the person responsible for this. Keep Butch.

  8. The fake ff was a thing of beauty. Chubb (DGD) would that that to the house.
