I think we have to score 30+ to have a chance.
I don't I think we gotta score about 24 their offense is good but it's not as good as last year it's not as high powered!
If Florida was getting pressure, I don't know how we are gonna scheme to block Jarvis Jones, who is ten times the pass rusher anybody Florida had. It will be interesting to see what the coaches come out and try to do schematically.
Butch Jones. Who???
I'd be willing to bet Florida is just as good on the defensive line than Georgia but Jarvis jones is a stud but tiny is talented just give it some time for tiny he will be a first round talent
We have to run the ball and protect Bray to have a chance. If our DB's don't cover and tackle better I don't think even that is enough.
UT Offense vs. UGA Defense:
I'm not going to say that we need to run the ball better because, 1. that's obvious, and 2. we haven't been running terribly. I feel like Chaney needs to commit to the run more. After all the talk all off season about focusing on the run, I don't think we've been as committed to it as much as Dooley & Co. claimed we would be. Bray, Hunter, and CP just need to keep doing their thing, they will be fine. Chaney and Bray have got to get Rivera more involved in the passing game. He is a weapon and will outmatch almost everyone he goes against this year.
UT Defense vs. UGA Offense:
By far my biggest concern. UGA has two VERY special and talented RB's and if UF can run for 330+ on us, I'm terrified to think of what they can do to us if we haven't fixed the communication and alignment issues by next Sat. Murray is Murray and he has to be respected, but I don't think he can win the game for them so contain him (better the Driskell), get in his face, put him on his back and ensure him that we will be visiting frequently throughout the game. Their perimeter game does not scare me in the least but their running game could be dominant. We have to get off the field on 3rd down which we have been pretty good at this year. If I remeber correctly, UF was 3-13 on 3rd down conversions. That is more than solid and pretty damn impressive actually. And finally, SET THE EDGE! I don't think Jaq deserves a lot of the criticism that he receives but one area that he is absolutely terrible on is outside containment. I have seen him mutliple times in every game get sucked in on a play action or on a read option and it has killed us every time. "Staying at home" is something my Pee-Wee coaches taught. It is a basic fundamental principle of playing defense and we are terrible at it.
Bottom line, going to be a tough game to win especially if this team can't fight through these mental hurdles that we obviously have. Do we have the talent to beat them? Without a doubt, 100% absolutely. If we get the right game plan from the coaches and the right mentality from the players, it could be a great day. If not, I'm scared to think of what Vol Nation will become. Go Vols!
