Wouldn’t be so bad if half our roster wasn’t decimated. Whoever let this game get moved to November a couple years ago, right when uga started getting really good
But are you sure they don't adhere to the EdEcEko philosophy of reacting to game results like an emotional 12 year old girl? It seems to be an increasingly popular philosophy. Maybe its a TikTok trend or something with these youngunz?!?!
We've got majority blue-chip guys this class (4/5 stars) but when you recruit the best you go up against the best. Still behind Bama, UGA, Texas, etc in that regard. Guys with NFL potential obviously want to go to the NFL and big time players want to play in big time games. Tennessee is still new to the scene. These kids were being recruited by Jeremy Pruitt early on in their high school careers. Relationships start earlyThen why haven’t we landed more big time blue chips? When we put on a recruiting weekend it’s always amazing.
Basically we traded spots on their schedule with Auburn. We probably didn’t like having to play Florida and Georgia back to backWouldn’t be so bad if half our roster wasn’t decimated. Whoever let this game get moved to November a couple years ago, right when uga started getting really good
Hopefully the atmosphere and effort is great and our recruits see both early playing time and championship potential.
James Pearce Jr, Addison Nichols, Tayven Jackson, Jordan Phillips, Cameron Miller, Kalib Perry, Nathan Robinson, John Slaughter, Boo Carter were at the 2021 game it looks like. Got blown out thereYeah, I’m sure watching us get wrecked by uga will be a great experience and will reel the commits in.
My point is - Neyland when we win or are competitive is on another level. But we’re too injured and our QB is mediocre to be competitive against this Georgia team. It’s gonna get ugly. Atmosphere will suffer as a result.

5 blue chip players are random? 5/9 of them were 4 or 5 star. So it’s actually more blue chips on that listMore randoms on that list than anything.
You’re really reaching with this post but that’s cool.
I said what I said. We should’ve picked a different game for our big recruiting weekend.

staff planned on this game being for Atlanta, or at least a repeat of the 2022 Bama vibes. Well. We see how that worked out....
Sorry, we didn't mean to crash your self-pity party. Carry on. Maybe you should just skip this and the rest of the season's games.Sorry. Didn’t have my orange glasses on.
You guys are right. So excited these kids get to see us get wrecked and neyland likely half empty by the end of the third quarter.
Exactly. When the recruits come this weekend, they see the facilities, the fan support, the environment with fans/coaches/players. Then they see Tennessee most likey somewhat compete against the defending back to back national champions. As a top recruit, you see a place you can ultimately win at but need more stars. Coaches sell the recruits on being that needed next wave of stars. Recruits are looking for reasons to go to places usually, it's not much about the scoreWhy? If you’re a good player, these are the games you want to be in. Winners don’t shy away from competition, they meet it at the door!
I just hope it's a competitive game with a great crowd/experience. My fear is that this team will roll over and be embarrassed. I've heard it said that who wins or loses a game doesn't really matter during the visit. Probably true if it's a competitive game, but if we show like we did vs Mizzou and UF, I just don't see how that would be anything other than a disaster for recruiting. At home, on CBS in the 3:30 slot and against the #1 team in the country. Surely we won't play like road kill again...will we?
