Some could make a case for resting the key players, spending two weeks preparing for USCjr and keeping our slim hopes of a bowl game alive. I think the media fall out would be devastating. However, if the game got out of hand early go to the bench and rest the starters.
I don’t see Pruitt doing that. Maurer will be out. Idk who we play at LB and Dline if we rest anyone there, 😂. Just so thin.

Maurer was perfectly fine on the sideline. I would be shocked if he couldn't pass protocol before Saturday. Only way he is out is if they don't want to put him in there without a full week of practice.

I would not play him versus Bama. That’s just me. Even though he had some freshman moments the playbook is much more open with him than JG the rest of the year.

Pruitt said something about the concussion protocol after the game. They have to test him. If he passes, all is good, if not, he likely sits out.

I didn’t think so. All the guys that have earned playing time deserve a chance to play and anything can happen...who saw sc beating uga today. Now I know...regardless of what their fans think uga is a long ways from being bama. But still I think you play our best kids and hope we get some breaks. Like 58 of them. All in the same game. Lol

Just forfeit. Saves everybody. And make Bama suffer by not even telling them. Stadium gets packed. Both teams out in the field during warmup. They finish and go back to locker rooms. Band then plays their pregame stuff. Announcers are proclaiming their greatness. And when it's our turn to come on the field, just turn around and go home. That's what I would do.

Iron sharpens iron.

And..anyway...certain players I.e. Jennings,Calloway etc. NEED some film making plays against the highest quality teams for some $ at the next level.

Should never be a question of a Tennessee team laying down in a game.

I get the argument and was concerned about starting Mauer against GA but don't agree with completely throwing a game, Alabama or not.
