Best of luck to Drew. We all appreciate his hard work. Hopefully he can block someone out on the left coast.
If he had done some work any work in off season, he wouldn't have gotten trampled by a DL linemen in every game, he's not kid Grown Azz
man lets give everybody a TROPHY.....................GO VOLS

Look, there is no denying Richmond as a Vol player did not produce like many of us thought or expected he would. However the young man coming out of high school was highly rated and sought after is my best recollection. Seems like people forget we went all out and actually flipped him from Ole Miss, he was wanted by not only us but almost everybody.

I remember being ecstatic when he flipped. First of many false starts.

"I can recall being promised that I’d start my freshman year. When that didn’t happen, I felt consumed by anger and frustration. Every game, win or lose, I’d check Twitter hoping for validation, but a lot of the time I just internalized negativity instead. "

Yeah...
Why would you look to twitter for validation? There has got to be something I’m missing.

very few of his team mates at the time could compete at an sec level...
Because it was just a dumb idea to expect freshmen at important positions to ever start on an SEC team. It was disaster from the beginning. I realize Jones didnt have much of a choice in starting freshmen(at least in the first couple seasons at UT) but he never developed his players and thus we got into a cycle of starting freshmen because they were honestly better than the seniors who never developed. Remember when we had like "the most experienced OL in the history of ever"? How's that turd shine up? Not well, I think.
