There’s quite a bit to like if not love about this young man. He runs like he’s on a mission to get to the yellow line every carry. When he breaks one, no one has been able to catch him. I wouldn’t call him one of our burners, but I’ve yet to see SEC secondary personnel run him down. Would like to see him get carries for three seasons with us. He’s been a fantastic addition.

I just noticed in this picture, there are 3 different shades of orange on his uniform. Hope we can get that fixed in time for the helmets debut.
I don't know why but our UT orange is a different shade by every manufacturer and it drives me crazy. I was commenting about it to my wife when they were showing close ups of the fans on Saturday.

The thing about Evans and even Smalls .. they both get more yardage after contact than both Gray and Chandler ... I'd rather our 2 than those .. Gray got 6 caries against Texas .. and Chandler not doing anything close to Evans .. that is 2 more we don't miss ....
Evans and Chandler have very similar stats, however, I would take Evans style of play over chandler any day of the week.
Ty: 88 carries, 484 yds, 5 catches, 123 yds, 5td
Tiyon: 73 carries, 486 yds, 4 catches, 78 yds, 6td

However, most of chandlers was 198 vs UVA, while Evans has been more consistent week to week

Their Dlines no better than USCjrs
Ole Miss statistically is a worse run defense than Carolina. Stats wise they’re towards the bottom in the country. If we get going on the ground on offense it will be interesting. I think they should be the better team but we matchup really well against their weakness.

Wasn't complaining, it's just that we are a premier program and nike should have no problem matching our colors. They did it for Oregon for years... I would like a uniform that doesn't look like it was thrown together overnight.
I think they would have looked better if the black was a true black and the orange was Tennessee Orange. I liked the idea of Nike had correctly gotten the colors right.
