Says we are back on the level of most other SEC teams talent wise.
Still a ways to go to catch the three best teams that we play each year, Bama, UF, UGA.
We aren’t nearly as physical as those teams yet.
Need some game changer playmakers on both sides of ball.
That’s what separates us now from upper tier teams like LSU, Auburn.
Biggest need is speed at WR.

So far, saying some improvement on off line but took a step back yesterday.
Said Gray did most of yards on his own.
Says we will really miss Bituli.
Says overall, we have 14 of 22 starters returning.
Must recruit for some important holes. Will discuss after the early churchgoers segment.
Astonishing insight from Doug.

We will miss Bituli.

Back to the action.
Excited about Brandon Kennedy getting a possible sixth year.
Need to find a defensive lineman that is a bull rusher in passing game.
Thinks Gibbs will be good.
Thinks Banks and Buchanan come back.
15 bowl practices huge for this coaching staff.
Doesn’t care who or where we play in bowl game.
Says the extra practice is all that matters.

Recruiting talk now.
Need more than 3 def linemen in this class. At least one stud.
Need a “special” QB like Tee Martin or Heath Shuler (says another Peyton Would be too much to wish for). He didn’t mention Bailey.....hmmmm.
Need a special WR like Peerless Price.
Need an Al Wilson type LB.

That's groundbreaking analysis. Doesn't every team need that every year?

Yeah Harrison Bailey has been pretty silent about UT the past few weeks.

Glad to hear Doug is still stuck in the 90s like a lot of our fan base.

Program in pretty good shape overall.
Next step is getting elite players in some places.
Again talking needing a QB.
Has not mentioned any names which is typical of him. He rarely bashes players he doesn’t think are performing. But, reading between the lines, I don’t think he’s wild about Harrison Bailey.
Says Chaney is huge get and Ansley dies well under a Pruitt’s guidance.
Says Tee has been good addition.
Says he “doesn’t know” how well Weinke and Friend did this year...hmmm.
We are an 8-4 football program right now. (Actually, 7-5,but he’s talking metaphorically, I guess).

So basically he's saying we need to recruit good players. Got it.
