Tennessee is not taking this game lightly which I think some people believe is happening. The coaching staff is making it very clear this game is priority #1. WIN THE GAME!
We are down a couple of key players however we have seen all season we have some really good players that haven't played a lot. Ramel Keyton stepped in for Tillman and the team did not miss a beat! I think Merrill will be a huge surprise because he an Milton seem to have developed chemistry working together with the 2's all season. I may be wrong about this but I think Merrill caught a TD pass in every game when Milton came in to close the games out. Squirrel is dynamite and I believe will fill Hyatt's absence quite well. We will win special teams in this game I'm almost for sure. I live 45 minutes from Clemson and several of my extended family are Clemson fans. I've watched almost everyone of their games and they suck at special teams. Both of their losses were basically because they lost the special teams battles. DJ did not lose the SC game for them, they had 2 special teams fumbles and block kick cost them that game. This is just Klubnicks 2nd start and he has not impressed me when he's come in all season. We should be able to rattle him with pressure like the Pitt game! We have the better offense, they have the better defense, we have the better special teams. Play smart and clean and we will win this game!
Great to see that Wright, Baron, Young, McCoy and McCullough are all playing.
Go Vols! 38-24
