Every 2 weeks we might add a solid playmaker etc.
Croom then........Pig.........then maybe Bowles (maybe after more reps/bye week).........then Downs (and Harris at backup LB)
How long is Downs out you think? Just curious about this... what did you think about Bullard playing TE?
Downs is out at least until the 'Bama game. Dislocated patella's are significant and painful. And once they occur, they're more likely to occur again.
If I were UT, and no more injuries occurred at TE, I certainly wouldn't push him back before the Mizzou game.
And Bullard was fine...kinda hoped they might do that at TE since they have pretty good OL depth and Bullard is supposedly a good run blocker (though he got whipped at least twice tonight).
Yep.......mid Oct prob.
I like Bullard at TE.........we had to do something. Smart by our staff. We will grow every game.
Just think how many key players have not played in a long time bc of injury or bc of youth/ juco:
Bray- sick or hurt last 2 games and was RUSTY then
Neal @ RB- moved to WR........never started.
Patterson- 1st game Juco
Tiny- 1st start.....played very little
and any other WRs not ZR's
Then on D:
Sentimore- 1st game start/ juco
Lathers- hurt all of 2011
Brewer- hurt most of late 2011
Moore @ S vs nickel last year a lot (never started really)
*Then add everyone in our 2 deep.............we are young in terms of bigtime PT and esp starting in big games.......but talented and will improve every snap. Not many of our team is like J. James or Dallas Thomas (who started his 1st game at LG.......LOL).

We beat the crap out of them and could have won 43-14 or 43-17 just as easy. Missed extra point, fumble at the 1, and their fumble inside the 5 that they got and then scored a TD vs nothing or a FG.
Wost case scenerio tonight it appears score wise vs maybe a top 25 team...........WE WON BY 14!!!!!!!!!!
(with all the above ITT I said + 7 new coaches + bye Da Rick and Clear + injury to Downs + new 3-4 scheme)
The NC State crowd was taken out of play once Tennessee got that safety and touchdown. They were seriously outnumbered by UT fans, and by the time the game ended, it was probably 95% Vols left.
I do have to revise my prediction for this season based on what I saw tonight - now thinking 9-3 is a legitimate possibility.
Also, the streak of UT winning when I'm at the game continues...
I am so relieved........I talked a ton of smack this last week predicting a blowout. TY Vols!
I actually like the two threads being separate (game and post game). Just my opinion... :-)

NCST should be happy we were down 3 of our top 7 passing targets maybe when we look back at this season:

That's a big reason why I upped up my win prediction to 9-3 minimum.
I just watched the game back. Our D made more game changing plays last night than it has in the last two years.
This may be true, but it's an extremely different style of defense. Once we get to SEC-level athletes, there also will be a TON more big plays against the D if things aren't massively cleaned up. Georgia might have scored 45 tonight against Tennessee.
Things are going to get cleaned up, I already trust in Sal. That dude is full go at all times....unlike Wilcox who was just too west coast for me (not saying he was bad but he is not an SEC type).
We can all start acting like we are not vandy now. Are we great? Who knows but we don't suck like we have.
After this game performance and then next weeks game the Vols should win easily, I look for the Florida game to be sold out now. Should be rockin
Was it me or did McCullers didn't really play much in the 2nd half? I seem to remember Daniel Hood playing most of the 2nd half.

Noticed the same thing. I'm wondering if Palermo is favoring McCullers for run stopping situations and Hood for pass rush.
I agree. Some of us don't have the time to read everything in a 50 page thread.
Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.
How about Eric Gordon last night! He has shown flashes of what he is capable of over the years, but I think CSS found a great way to let him shine. The "Star" position looks like a great fit.
Come and take them.
Very true. Looks like CSS has done a pretty good job across the board plugging talent into his system.
He played aggressive and tackled well.
My only concern was on goal line,.I believe it was Gordon that over pursued on both TDs that
allowed NC States RBs to cut back and score
