    Figured we could have a little game discussion here. Shouldn't be much of a game. But we should get to see how the new defense looks and see how the offense has progressed.

    I want to see complete and total domination from start to finish. Appy State isn't a bad football team, but they shouldn't be able to do much of anything against Tennessee.

    Shoop's D is pretty much a nickel/4-2-5 all the time. It will be interesting to see if he brings a lot of pressure or if it's more of a vanilla look for game one. I'm thinking he's not really going to hold much back.

    I want to see Kamara and Hurd in the backfield together quite a bit.

    Could be very wet. Field conditions will deteriorate rapidly if they don't keep it covered beforehand. Put it out of reach early or it could get weird like bowling green.

    I want to see Preston Williams or Jeff George just run a go and Dobbs lay it up for them a few times.

    I'm interested to see the defense under Shoop more than anything else. They should be a top 10 defense this year. As for Appy St- pound the ball, take a few deep shots, and cover the spread.

    I really want to see the offense. I know this won't be a good team to gauge them against, but I want to see how well they execute.

    All I can do for a game like this is to watch the fundamentals. Are we taking good lines to the ball on D, hows the form of our linemen, etc.

    I want to see if Dobbs and the Receivers have improved the passing game.

    That normally = 2 inches of rain and storms

    Red flag if anything, but a beatdown

    Big red flag, especially if it is a low scoring affair.
