It’s Heupel Time!

It’s Thursday night in Knoxville and Tennessee football is ready to turn over a new leaf.  The line is UT -34.5 and if you’re hoping for a little Georgia State magic from Bowling Green, prepare to be disappointed.  BG is horrid.

On the Bowling Green side, things are a bit of a mess. The Falcons went 0-5 in last year’s shortened season, bringing head coach Scot Loeffler’s career record to 3-14. There are just 16 players on the Bowling Green roster this year who have started a game for the school before, so there will be a lot of attempting to figure things out on the fly. Quarterback Matt McDonald passed for just one touchdown last season and six interceptions.

The most you can hope for is that the Vols emerge from the game with a false sense of security.

    Put it this way. Bowling Green likely not be favored to win Georgia’s 6A title this year.

    Finding “Handsome Dick Manitoba” on a GTP post is indeed a surprise. Age has been kinder to him than it has to UT football. Tonight my be their season highlight.

  4. Sunny beach…no wonder we lost so much ozone in the 80’s, I had forgotten that even dudes would burn through several cans of Aquanet back in the day…

      Gahhh, even mentioning that name brings back that horrible smell. Turned me off on more than a few girls in the 80’s. I took a few out that were interesting enough to my eyes to overrule my nose, but I can’t think of one that got a second date. The closer I got to their hair, the more triggered my flight-response became.

      Smelling Febreze has the same effect on me; my wife brought some home early on in our relationship, but my loud gagging every time she used it made my feelings clear. I’d rather smell the dog sh*t on the carpet than that stuff…..

    BG is Bishop Sycamore bad. When I looked up their record last week I was surprised how putrid they truly were.

    The false variety is the only sense of security in Knoxville

    Loeffler got a head coaching gig? At a real college?

    • Had Brian VanGorder as his DC, too, but BVG left Bowling Green last year to go be the DC at Gulf Shores High School. You kinda have to wonder if BGSU even gives a rip about their football program anymore…and yet I’m still not confident in the Vols’ ability to cover thirty-four and a half.

    Its obvious Ms. Conway had tonight in mind. Typical prescience, methinks.

    While I want to hate watch the Vols tonight, I am guessing I will probably watch more of the Ohio State game to see how OSU looks.

    This is so that BG can get their check and the vols can bask in how great Heupel is for a week or two only to get crushed. I think we have seen this movie before. Ill be amazed if they get to six wins.

    I just came to see if the Senator had a thread up on Courson yet. Like all COVID threads here, I expect it to be a complete and utter shitshow.

    Since when does MN have black unis? Also, TN wiping the field and clearly getting amped up for a big awakening. Gawd I can’t wait for the real stuff.


  17. rigger92

    MN giving it a go, TN acting like they are something. Same as it ever was, fake juice and all.

    There whole OOC schedule is like that. Plus they get Vandy and South Carolina in conference. The schedule is the only reason they might make a bowl.
