    Words shouldn't end a career for a teenager. Not with Jennings. Not with banks.

    Oh and how bout Heup having us #1 in total offense in the country after 4 games. And we played 2 top 20 teams as well as took off the gas with subs at halftime of the other 2.
    From where we were less than 2 years ago. It’s amazing

    He walked off but needed a plate?

    Rumor is that it was the tightrope surgery Tua had a few years ago that had him back on the field in 3 weeks. That would be consistent with a high ankle sprain and have him back on the field for LSU or Bama.

    Agreed especially on Jennings front. Just kinda gets hairy when you are a legal aged adult making wild threats to actual cops. Dismissing him to a JUCO college for a year and then allowing him back was probably the most appropriate way to handle that particular situation. Seems like Banks has handled everything since then very well

    I have definitely been leery of hurry-up no huddle offense systems in the past a lot of programs with similar styles in recent history seem to eventually crash and burn, but damn I’m starting to really fall in love with our offensive philosophy. Never imagined it would be as exciting as it is when we first hired Heup.

    sure. Plate just compresses and holds the fracture so bone can start forming and healing.
    UT OG LB played on a broken leg, which was probably fibula.

    Obviously I want Tillman back, but he needs to do whatever he can to fully get healthy. If his career at UT is now in jeopardy I’ll personally be sad. But not as sad as I would be if he came back too early and jeopardizes his NFL earnings potential. If worst case scenario on his injury comes to pass and his career in orange is over, then a tip of the cap to him for being another great WR in our school’s heralded WR history. Protect your bank account and family kid

    I would just rather him get ready than come back. Tightrope would include drilling thru the tibia to pull together, thru a plate fixated with 6-8 screws.
    If, he had a plate put in as rumored

    JH handles himself well publicly, seems like a genuinely good human being who lets his actions attest to his character. So glad we don’t have a coach that carries himself like a corny conman Baptist preacher a la Dabo or Freeze. Can’t stand the fake TV minister vibes seen in so many coaches in college football

    Him being a coaches son and heisman caliber player out nowhere appears to be a great mix.

    Didn’t know about the plate but had heard high ankle and 4-6 weeks. That sucks if he ended up having surgery already.

    Pruitt saved Jennings and Banks

    Pruitt for all his faults as a HC, one of them was not bailing on his players. He genuinely seemed to care for them.

    Gump just couldn't run a program.

    Sorry for not allowing a win over an average Florida team to blind me from clear issues I saw during the game.

    That makes sense at the beginning of the game. By the second half, after it was abundantly clear he was going to march the ball down the field throwing it with ease, why would they still be worried about that?

    We were one play from not winning. Remember why they failed that play? Because we rushed 6 and got to the QB.

    What’s the difference between letting him run wild and letting him throw wild? Even just as a late adjustment, what’s the difference? They marched down the field every series anyway. Why not give something else a try?

    This whole “we won, so it worked” thing is just nonsense. The lack of adjustments should be concerning.

    [uck fay] sake indy everybody knows what issues we have. Yes we probably are overrated considering our defense. But tell me a team outside of the top 3 or 4 we can’t beat with this offense and Heup picking people apart with his route combos.
    You’ve been arguing since the game about something. Anything. Everything.
    Did you have some bad jello shots?

    This. They kept running that slow as [uck fay] play action, and we gave them all day to do it. We FINALLY brought pressure on one, and it nearly caused a safety.

    If everybody knows what issues we have, why are so many people arguing with me about them?

    I agree we have the ability to beat any of those teams but wouldn’t say I’d expect us to do so with consistency.

    The route combos are phenomenal.
