Say what you want but I at least commend the coaching staff for recognizing a problem and going out to find a solution. That’s more than what Jones or Pruitt would have done. He gives us depth where we needed it.
Considering the mess UT has been for a while, and especially during Dixon's recruitment cycle, I wouldn't have come here either. The choice he made at the time was common sense, and I'm a diehard Vols fan. Yet smart enough to understand you make the best possible choice for your future, not the worst or less viable choice.
Looks ike he plays fooshball real good. Got burst at the LOS when going up the middle. Good stop and go deceptive moves, can be a charging bull when cornered. Jukes real good too. Gets caught from behind, but by the time he does, he has often consumed significant yardage. Seems to be a better Tiyon Evans than Tiyon Evans.
Travis Etienne happened and likely the biggest factor but now he's a good fit due to our type of offense. I'm expecting Sampson to be a good fit down the line since he didn't enroll until June and has some catching up to do. Excellent receiving back.
