This doesn’t sound good.

This is what you call a sucker bet.
Honestly, I’d love to know what goes into the thought process that leads to a “yeah, think I’ll lay almost a quarter of a million dollars on a Tennessee football team to do something right”.
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.
Tennessee coaches focusing on the trivial…
I mean, SOD couldn’t have said it any better.
Fun fact, indeed.
You don’t see headers like this every day.
Give Ekeler credit for upping UT’s catch phrase quotient. That certainly kicks Booch’s trash can in the arse.
Assuming that Mike Farrell is correct (I know, I know), Tennessee has lost the nos. 1, 2, 4, 5 and 9 transfer players of the offseason. I don’t care how transformative the attitude adjustment may be, that’s a shitload of talent to make up.
By the way, not a single one of the 100 top players on his list is incoming to Knoxville.
This had me howling.
For the love of Gawd, why does this matchup exist?
The only reason I can think of to have any interest in that game will be to get our first look at Heupel’s replacement.
I’m not sure what I enjoy the most about Sports247’s transfer portal rankings…
… that Georgia has three of the top ten incoming, or that Tennessee has three of the top ten departures.
Okay, I kid a little bit there, but I don’t think it’s really sunk in yet how much damage Fulmer’s stint as athletic director did to the football program there. But by the end of this season, it just may.
