Blowed up on Rocky Top

Josh continues his yeoman’s work reviewing last year’s offense with this take on what happened in Knoxville here and here, but my favorite play from that game was this play from the defense:

 

From the first “oooh” you can hear in the background as Stokes delivers the hit to the ref’s block to help spring Crowder, to the way Crowder ducks under the oncoming Vol to finish the play, it’s really a perfect fifteen seconds of Georgia football.  Gotta love it.

  1. I love Eric Stokes. He came in as one of those 3-star types who found a way to get on the field. As the 5-star DBs have come flowing in, none of them have come close to knocking him out of the lineup.

    Stokes shook that kid’s soul loose from his body with that hit.

    Fumble runbacks for TDs in Knoxville are the best.

    While practicing social distancing I may put that clip on loop and just sit here smiling for the rest of the day.

    Great way to start the week! Reminds me of Marcus Howard separating Colt Brennan from the ball (or was it his spleen?) in the Sugar Bowl.

  10. I loved everything about that clip aside from the fact that it made John Sully sad.

    Notice that Tae kept the QB from getting rid of the pass by jumping so high into the passing lane.

  12. As the abuse tactician of a rather disreputable group of dawg fans….it is my professional advice to the assembled dawg fans that on occasions/plays such as this is to turn to the nearest UT fan and tell them…”play Rocky Top now, A-Hole” Always shuts em up.
