“I think I’m a lot better football player than last year.”

Jarrett Guarantano’s gotten a fair amount of preseason pub and I do think some of it’s deserved.  It’s tough being a decent quarterback in a shitty offense.  But part of the reason for UT’s offensive struggles can be explained in a simple stat about Guarantano himself:  Chaney is Guarantano’s fourth offensive coordinator in as many seasons.

He better be one helluva quarterback whisperer.

    Their 2016 recruiting class has surely lived out their worst nightmare

    Wasn’t Booch considered something of a QB whisperer when he landed the utk job? Ty Helton also?

    Maybe they were QB whisperers-light.

    They like to dump on Guarantano over there on Volnation and pretend everything is his fault. It helps them feed their one player away fantasy. Harrison Bailey from Marietta is currently designated as their savior. Tech is trying to flip him, it would be absolutely hilarious if they succeeded.

    Like i do every year, fully expecting a group text from my brother-in-law about how he’s not sold on Pruitt, it’s embarrassing and it’ll be time for a change soon. They still don’t realize it’s an institutional problem.

    Cheney knows how to get the most out of his quarterback, so I’m expecting JG to improve; they still have some issues around the OL though.

      Yep, I expect the same. JG will be better this year but too many problems all around him for the team to be much better.

      I don’t know if I would call it the “the most out of his quarterback”, but Chaney has a 25 year history of two things:
      1. Being a good offseason coach that will make sure his QB has good footwork and a decent throwing motion.
      2. Only calling plays the QB is comfortable with and has demonstrated good decision making with in practice.
      It might not be “the most”, but he does a good job of making sure his QB does beat himself.
