How can UT be that high? And still have lost to Ga State and BYU?

Chaney ate his crayon
Where is UT in the +/- turnover game?
Ohio State, 36th……so far, they are worse (last year).
Can’t imagine what things will be like if Tennessee loses to UTC. Could happen……if so, they sure as hell deserve it.
Crickets from Colin Cowherd ….. he being the one who picked Tenn to be SEC champs and in the playoff …. luckily for him, there is no accountability in sports media…its just a forgotten remark.
That guy is awful anyway. He must get paid by how many times he can say the name “Lebron” in a sentence.
He is also the biggest Harbaugh supporter you will ever hear. I bet he hasn’t said anything about that heroic win that UM pulled off over Army in OT either.
There’s no dumb quite like sports media dumb.

And then there’s Jim Rome and Art Eckman dumb.
No one forgets how horrible Cowherd is.
I enjoy Cowherd. He usually has a credible argument to support his opinions
Yes, but it isn’t about being credible; it is about stirring pots. Back in the early days when CMR was coaching us he would talk about us ‘boatracing’ another team. Usually didn’t happen. Kind of like UT. He hasn’t been the only UT supporter – a number of folks have thought they be better than last year because, well, how could they be worse? Hmmm.
Surely you jest. He pulls one factual nugget out of a much larger context and aligns himself completely with said factoid without any understanding of the rest. He’s the definition of a lazy thinker.
Assuming Pruitt would be taking UT to previous heights is the perfect example of Cowherd’s tendency to do this. He doesn’t know one detail about Pruitt other than that he coached with Saban and was known as a decent d coordinator. Well, that’s good enough for Cowherd! What more does he need to know?
There’s lazy thinkers then there’s Terence Moore.
UGA is up over a full yard per play from last year. It’s early, and against the weakest portion of our schedule, but it’s almost like… a weight has been lifted from our offense.
Our O looks crisp. I’m thrilled to see the mix in the passing game, from throwing to TEs to the new young talent at WR. Two weeks of play is a small sample size but I’m more convinced than ever, that if we lose a game, it will be a serious stumbling by our team. Auburn could be formidable, due to the rivalry, but still. We look better than any on our schedule. Many teams across the country had the early-season rust. We look sharp and well coached right out of the gate, and that’s with a lot of newbies in the mix.
If anyone puts a combined score of our first two cupcakes together we could be close to such a demise.
We play the second one this weekend.
I don’t get the put downs directed at Chaney. He did a great job. He was wonderful. Many of his decisions were influenced by Kirby (impose your will, Nicholls State). Don’t get that twisted at all.

I don’t get the Chaney-hate, either. I thought he did a great job for us, though Brian Schottenheimer isn’t exactly a hard act to follow. I suspect he’s like Pruitt in one fundamental respect: he’s a great coach when he has great players, but he isn’t one of those magicians who can make chicken salad out of chicken shit.

Chaney has never been a game-changing OC anywhere he’s coached. But, but Drew Brees … it was Joe Tiller’s offense at Purdue. He seems to have never gotten a sniff at a head coaching job.
My reply is this…your salary is a direct reflection of your worth in the business world. There aren’t very many college OCs even close to him. He is a commodity. He is a great OC.
People overpay for talent all the time … this seems to be one of those times. If Chaney were a great OC, Kirby would have matched the offer. It speaks volumes that Kirby didn’t try to keep him.
how do you know he didn’t try to keep him?
Because he said he wanted to keep the rest of his staff together and he couldn’t do that if he matched Chaney’s offer.
I didn’t feel the hard-headed approach and the 5 losses in 2016 were necessary to get the ‘buy-in’ message across to our players. I thought we could scheme around our then-current personnel to get through that first year and work on the new plan a little along until off-season practice let us give it full attention. But I’m just a fan, so what do I know. Water under the bridge, I’m happy where we are now…
another thing i don’t get is that argument that we didn’t have talent on offense in 2016. There were/are at least 13 guys who are currently playing or will play in the nfl off of that offensive roster. That was a total waste of a year “imposing our will” instead of winning football games.
Rational exuberance or premature exuberance?
Hope so 👍
Thanks, Senator! You just keep giving and giving us these vowel nuggets. It’s just like Christmas!
I would hope so, after playing Vandy and an FCS team.
