Longtime Vol fan and especially last year it pains me when you shoot yourself in the foot because of stupid. I'm sure there's no stat that's kept on this but if there is I'll bet last year we led the SEC in false starts by Offensive lineman. Several games this was on the same player. If they believe in fundamentals and I'm sure they do there has to be a way to fix this. Just wanted with all the other stuff that's going to have to be dealt with the next 3 yrs fix this bad habit please. Go Vols

I am sure CJH and staff will be deep into film study. The countless times we shot ourselves in the foot with penalties will be obvious. I mean we had multiple motion and off-sides penalties that killed drives. Then there were penalties on our defense that kept opponents on the field way to long. Agree player mental discipline and self control have to be a priority by new staff.

That's because they thought the QB was saying "hike" when it was Pruitt on the sideline saying "aight".

OP has a point. All jest aside. Seems the last decade, we've been lacking in the fundamentals. Arm tackles, backs that fall down on first contact. QB's getting blindsided and fumble on sacks, unsportsmanlike drive killing penalties. There is some truth in THE TEAM THAT MAKES THE FEWEST MISTAKES WINS, maxim.
I just emailed this post to Heupel@I_Listen_to_Volnation_to_understand_my_job.com

OP, I suggest simply walking in to Anderson and head straight for the man's office to let him know directly. Often there is a receptionist or even security staff there. Just ignore anything that they say and keep going. Even in the rare event that you are physically resisted, just stay the course. You'll absolutely get your chance to lay bear your ❤️ to the new HC.
Do not be deterred. And by all means report back what you learn.
