If we learned one thing from the UGA game, it was that Tennessee can run the football in the SEC. But for any one who still doubts, get a load of this statistic:
2011 UT rushing stats: 1081 yards for the ENTIRE SEASON (2.8 ypc/90.1 yds/game)
2012 UT rushing stats through 5 games: 887 yards (4.5 ypc, 177.4 yds/game)
Debate=over. I still want an elite running back in our next recruiting class, however
Good post. +1 A couple of things I haven't heard this week(and dang glad of it)... The rungame sucks & They got out coached. The run game is relevant again. And the coaches' gameplan put the Vols in a position to win. All you can ask. GO VOLS!
BUTCH IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. GO VOLS!
+1 Nick, thanks for the info. It appears that Jay Graham is already paying great dividends. He may have been Coach Dooley's best pick-up last year!
"Old School"! A strong defense wins championships!
Something else I find interesting: if we can keep up the pace of running for 177 yards/game, we'll wind up rushing for over 2,300 yards on the season (that's 12 games plus a bowl...which we will reach) and have an excellent shot at 8 or 9 wins. We'll also give Alabama the fight of their lives. I expect that pace to drop off a little bit, but not precipitously.
+1 for working the word precipitously into your post.
What's a preticupously?
it means drastically. In other words, unless our run game falls off the face of the planet, we'll be more than okay.
And another +1 for spelling it correctly.
