Tennessee defense is underrated.. It's good.. Really good. Special teams has been solid all year. Can't remember last time i could say that.

Special teams don't get any recognition this year? Is that a joke?

Maybe Medley, who looked serviceable tonight, minus a missed chip shot. He's deservedly gotten a lot of criticism this year.

The defense looked good. And the offense looked good... enough.

Most of the good field position was a result of mizzou being terrible on offense and punting, but it was a good win, so we look forward to Vandy.

I know it's way too early to talk about next year, but I selfishly hope Cam & JRM come back. Add a healthy Tuttle and other defenders that have missed significant time,and the D has potential to be lights out !!!

Calm down Thrash I wasn't just talking bout this year I know kick off teams and the punter have been awesome all year long with Cam in PR.. I was just saying that special teams hardly get any love.. Especially kick off teams.. That's what I was saying.. Now grab those orange panties out your butt..

Are you serious bro?
Damn serious. We suck.
Are you a blind person?.
When the opposing quarterback throws the ball, 50% of the time our D backs are 10-15 yards away from the receiver and close late.
Missouri was overrated on both sides of the ball.
Our D secondary has been dismal the last ten years.

And i`m not your bro.
If you are from the ghetto, please chime in.

This is classic VN. No credit for a solid win.

THINK folks, how many years, or decades, has it been since we've been able to be really proud of our Special teams?

buTch said he would make our Special Teams 1 of his priorities and he's done that well.

I'm really proud of all our Special teams guys and YES, that does include Medley!

Kicking that football last night was like kicking a hard brick and it does hurt but he only missed 1 FG and he was a big part of the points on the board that got us the WIN.

Our D played about like I expected and that was good.

It's great that we've finally gotten back to the point that we again EXPECT our D to play really well.

If buTch can talk Sutton and Reeves-Maybin into staying for their Senior season I expect our D to get much better and we'll be damn hard to score on next season.

Next season our O line should be much better and lots of the FG's should turn into TD's.

It's GREAT to have this many WINS in a season so far already and I can see serious progress made since buTch and his staff took over.

I'm very proud of all our Tennessee footVol players!
