Manufactured?

“Yeah, Da’Rick Rogers, there was a lot of bickering going on back and forth, but that’s just the game,” Elam said. “He was saying, you know, he's bigger than all us, so ‘You too small,’ and things like that. I kept telling him ‘You gonna get hit. You gonna get hit.' I was just trying to hit him, that’s all.”

Let him talk. He has to come defend both of those receivers next year, not just one. Might need to blow that up into some posters and hang it on Tennessee's lockers for next years game.

Elam had a pick that sailed right into his arms. But he didn't stop Da'Rick.

BTW, **** ESPN and that manufactured bull****. They were running those dickhead articles before the game. Matt Elam should try laying a hit on Chris Lowe.

Ok, so Hunter goes out on his first catch without anyone touching him.

The DBs get called for nearly a record number of pass interference calls.

Tyler Bray is able to pass to 8 different receivers during the game, despite losing his number 1 receiver.

We have no running game so there was no doubt we would be passing.

The interception at the start of the 2nd half was a good play by a DB. Bray thought he had it high enough but the guy made a good play. One of only a few by their DBs.

Yeah, we made a lot of mistakes and let a bunch of plays get away from us, but it was really a guy named Rainey who won the game for the gators, their DBs did not "take care of that situation" and if they think so, they are deluding themselves. Once they meet a team that has both a running and a passing game, they'll get blown away.

The only pass defense they played was to blatantly interfere any chance they got. As for Elam's pick? Most of us could have picked that off. It was thrown right at him. We lost that game and were terribly outplayed, but not because of Florida's secondary.

Okay, here's what you get when you suck as a DB. I used to play that position and if you truly cant cover the person, you do everything to keep the ball out of the wide receivers hands i.e. pass int. That's why they got called so much...they suck! They had to do something or they would have gotten burned all day long! nuff said!

That interception to start the second half was by a LB, not a DB. Their DB's can't catch or hit.

I liked when Elam tried to hit Da'Rick in the endzone. Was funny.

Did Da'Rick or Hunter say what was on the poster?
No, it was a ploy by FL coaches to get their DBs fired up. The only actual talk during the week was b/t Rodgers and Elam. Elam got on twitter and said something to the effect of "wow, TN WR are talking trash" and then something about how they weren't going to be playing a Montana or Cincy this weekend. Rodgers responded to the second part by taking what Elam said and adding "says a scared DB".

Really was too bad/frustrating how the game played out. FL is not 10 points better than us. Our youth on D showed several times and FL took advantage(hurts now, will eventually be a good thing). Our offense struggled b/c our number 1 threat went down, and we couldn't run the ball(RBs don't hit the hole they get to the hole and stop and try to jump to another gap, hate to say it but watch Rainey, he gets the ball and hits the hole before trying to juke), and they have a really good DL that was getting pressure pretty consistently. A blind monkey could have called defensive plays at that point. Double Rodgers and make an unproven freshman WR and a TE beat you all while the qb has hands in his face. Hard to do, but much kudos to the team for fighting back

our DB's weren't that great in 07 either their young but this exp will make them better and if the change is anything like 07 to 08 that would be awesome :)

Playing the young guys is normally never a bad thing. You just hope it's during blow outs like we had in weeks 1 and 2. You have to expect some lumps playing them as much as we are, but they will definitely learn quicker...just hope the lumps are kept at a minimum(and that they don't turn into 83yrd td's from a 2yd pass).

Elam said he was upset with the chatter the coaches said the Vols directed to the Gators' secondary last week.

“Coach was in our ear all week saying, 'They talking trash, they are not coming into our house and talking trash,'" Elam said.
It was manufactured by this magnificent chucklehead:



Read comprehension is fun! A lot of words though! I bolded the parts that I felt might help you understand. Your DBs also sucked. Rogers beat coverage at least 6 times while being double covered all game. If Hunter (or Hunger? You Florida guys are so poignantly accurate!) was in and Rogers was single covered? Well, have fun with that one. You have your times of rational clarity.

This isn't one.


I suggest standing down.
