Matt: How about that for a statement game from the Vols, pal? You’ve been doubting us for months. We were beating top 3 Georgia on the road for 2 quarters, and we just couldn’t close it out. Respect us!
Tory: The Vols still haven’t won a game of significance under Jeremy Pruitt. I don’t know any other way to look at it.
If losing by 23 qualifies as a statement game, I have to wonder what Tennessee’s message was.
