I agree the punting was poor. Which is what makes it strange our field goal kicker looked so good.

If I were Pruitt I would send a recruiter on an all expenses paid vacation to Australia to find an Australian rules rugby player. Those guys make the best punters. They can get rid of the ball quickly and just kill it for distance.

We don't have offensive talent??? Callaway, Jennings, Trey Smith, Chance Hall, Ty Chandler, etc. Those guys aren't talented. We still have a lot of 4 and 5 stars on the roster.

I think it is a preemptive coping mechanism for some to say that kind of stuff.

O&W game really did nothing to change any of my concerns. This team will look a lot different come fall than it does in April.

I think the OL will be fine if Hall and Smith both get healthy. CB is going to be limited this year.

DL depth.
LB has some talent and more coming but getting that group together may take some time.

I agree.

I don't expect us to be good next year either, but to say that there is none, or very little, talent on this roster is just inaccurate. Pruitt is inheriting much more talent than Dooley or Butch did. The depth is lacking at some position groups, but there are good frontline guys on this team. You couldn't say that about the rosters Dooley and Butch inherited, with very limited exceptions.


That's what makes the last few years of Tennessee football so disappointing - they are supposed to be good. They are good on paper. Several guys on the O and D-lines were very highly recruited. Could have gone almost anywhere. Couldn't say that about Dooley and Butch's teams, and the equivalency between those rosters and this roster needs to stop. Dooley was starting walk-ons on the O-line, for example.

A couple of 50 yarders with what seemed to be fairly good hang time after the kickers settled in made me feel better,at least after that first 25-30 yard whiff. Field goal kicking won't show it's face until the chips are down.

As for trying to compare these or any kickers to Daniel, well not many come along that can compare. He was t as good as we have had in a long time.

Ron Widby comes to mind anytime I it try to compare our current punter to the best.

Not many on this site are old enough to remember him. But, lord, he could kick the ball as high and long as anyone I have ever seen. (including the great Guy) I swear sitting high up in the stadium, you had to look way up to follow the ball's flight.

All true. But to look a bit further, they weren't facing a very strong east. Right now, the east is becoming a force to be reckoned with and we have been left behind. This makes his job as tough and likely tougher than either of those last guys.
