Bray doesnt call the plays
For the 100th time...it does not matter what "poor decisions" Bray makes. He has a cannon, accuracy, and prototypical size. He has put up pretty great numbers in a defense-dominated college conference.
NFL people will think they can "fix" any "mental lapses" that might be there...if there even are any.
I agree we show glimmers of hope here and there I'm just at a loss as to what we need. How can we play those teams so well but come out tonight and look like we belong in the MAC conference? And regardless of how well we played for the time that we played it we still lost those games and this is not horseshoes or hand grenades so close doesn't count.
Best thing to come out of Alabama: I-59 North
My thought on hotseat issues: Hart will not decide on firings until after the season, but if our team loses games after play like the first half, Dooley will likely be gone. He better hope we turn it around 2nd half, play this bad will sink him.
"I'm like Wes." --Ryan Callahan
After our first drive the play calling has been terrible. Is it Bray or Cheney? 3rd and 8--throw a 3 yard pass. 3rd and 4 then 3rd and 1 and both times Bray just slings a bomb. Hunter avoided contact on a catch-able ball. He's already saving himself for the NFL. Patterson has put forth no effort on 2 passes near him. Yes he returned a touchdown but he didn't even try to catch the ball that was intercepted. Bray looks like he isn't even interested. As much as our D has been on the field, this game could become a blowout. I'm still cheering but its on deaf ears. I LIKE DOOLEY. I want him to succeed. I think he recruits well, has integrity and is a good face for the program. But we could easily go 6-6 this year. I hate to jump on the bandwagon but he just might not be the right fit for Tennessee. And it really makes me mad to think that because I have supported him whole-heartily. GO VOLS
I think you're right, smasher. I really wonder what the consequences would be for this team if that happened, at least in the beginning. But how can you justify keeping him if they look this bad in virtually every aspect of the game?
Hard to disagree with this.
Losses aren't the issue...it's how the losses look. If this one continues the same way (or god forbid, gets worse), it could be the first of three straight blowout losses.

On a brighter note isn't basketball season starting in less than a month???
Even a drinking, Orange glasses wearing , Vol lovin' person like me can't find anything really positive to say about that first half performance. I think I'll go throw up. Talk to y'all after the game. GO VOLS!
BUTCH IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. GO VOLS!
I was just wondering if it was more coaching than talent. Two weeks to prepare and we come out looking, as you say, like a MAC team.
