This piece makes fun of Booch from the header and never slows down.
Then, it was dinner, and time for the Liberty Bowl’s high school player of the week, who just happened to be Cordova’s four-star offensive lineman Jerome Carvin, who just happened to have spent last Saturday visiting Tennessee.
“What impressed you?” asked Liberty Bowl’s Harold Graeter.
“Georgia,” someone quietly cracked.
He’ll be here all season, folks. Try the veal.
Bill Connelly’s percentile performance ratings for the Tennessee game:
- Offense: 78%
- Defense: 97%
- Overall: 95%
You’ll probably enjoy the Vols’ numbers even more. Put it this way — remember the Nicholls game?
Scroll down and there’s plenty more to take in. Jake Fromm’s success rates in standard vs. passing downs for the season mirror what I mentioned for the Tennessee game. He may not be consistent, but, relatively speaking, he is clutch.
WARNING: Bill’s special teams numbers may make you wet your pants.
Booch actually said this after 41-0:
After the first home shutout since 1994, one can wonder how much longer Jones can continue as “the caretaker of Tennessee football.”
Jones’ caretaker status has met its match as his players have taken on the mentality of their head coach.
Jones clearly doesn’t have a firm grasp of what’s happening, saying “we had a good week of preparation” after the loss to Georgia.
“I thought our kids were ready to play,” Jones said.
Then, there’s this deep, deep moment of Zen-like insight.
“I think it’s an accumulation effect,” Jones said of his offense. “When you have opportunities to make plays relatively early in the game, and you don’t, you lose those opportunities.”
It’s no wonder Barnhart says Jones’ fate is complicated.
Every week I think I see the quintessential Tony Barnhart pearl on Twitter…
… and every week I’m right.
What teams that lose at home by 41 always say:
Well, then, thanks for being such gracious hosts.
If perception is reality, being roasted on ESPN College GameDay is shit getting real.
Hey, at least he’s still got Herbstreit in his corner.
