What are they feeding our boys?


This group has been slow from the beginning, but in 2011 they were coached a little better on alignment and being in better position. When you combine slow with poor alignment, then the result is giving up 50 to Troy.

Not even close to level playing field. Chip may have left the program, but the talent is there and the next coach will have a smooth transition. Our story is of Kiffin bailing and kicking the team when it was already down.

The last time they came to Knoxville, believe it or not with Dooley & Sims as his QB we were tied at the half. The second half of that game we may as well have stayed in the locker room, they couldn't have scored any more against us if we had.

Mr tough guy. Where do you find the courage to call people names from your key board. I was halfways being sarcastic. Just saying our defense can improve a lot and still not be where it needs to be. I guess that does make me an idiot

If you knew what his big brother did to him in the bathroom before school this morning, you would understand.

Heh...I put more stock in the coaching.

Our defense is not filled with scrubs. You may not put much stock in em but the recruiting services ranked em pretty good too.

They didn't exactly prevent the big play in 2011

If we gave up half the points we did last year, that would be roughly 18 pts. per game, which, based on 2012 NCAA defensive rankings, would put us roughly 13th in the country, just behind LSU and slightly ahead of South Carolina (see http://web1.ncaa.org/mfb/natlRank.js...&div=IA&dest=O). Even cutting our defensive yield to 20 pts. per game would put us very close to the top 20 in that category.

In 2011, we were 37th in scoring defense (23.2 pts. per game); an 18 ppg yield would have ranked us 7th nationally and 20 ppg would have ranked us 16th nationally (College Football Stats - College FB Team Opponent Points per Game on TeamRankings.com).

Kelly gone cant hurt our chances!
Wonder if Kelly is pulling a Pete Carroll and getting out before the NCAA comes in and lowers the boom on Oregon?

Are there rosters really THAT much better than ours? Comparing recruiting classes:
2010: UT #9 and Oregon #13
2011: UT #13 and Oregon #9
2012: UT #17 and Oregon #16

and so far this year UT #29 and Oregon #44

There's no reason to feel inferior!
