    1. The oline played much better.
    2. The defense looked much better.
    3. We got a consistent pass rush against a very good oline.
    4. If we get average QB play tonight, it's a blowout.
    5. We have several more months of seeing Jennings in orange.

    RockyHill Loves Auburn more than Tennessee.

    Poor Jennings. Like Dobbs he got a raw deal at Tennessee and should be remembered as a gd legend.

    Jennings is joining the Eric Berry Circle of Wasted Talent for the Vols.

    I no longer give a shit about watching another UT game this year and will devote my full attention to being the assistant coach for an U8 flag team of which has a head coach that was so hungover this morning forgot to line up his defense not once but three times and gave up. TDs each time en route to a mercy rule ending. [uck fay]ing great day for athletics

    I think Calloway is a better candidate.

    Offenses actually looks solid on the scripted plays. Actually score touchdowns and/or continue to look solid for more than 15 plays and this team might not suck...

    We've got 2 very good ball carries and 3 great targets for the passing game.

    Worse than that. He limits the offense to 4 verticals in the passing game. Can't call plays with that type of limitation. I thought Chaney could get him right, kinda like what Kiffin did with Crompoton but apparently JG doesn't have the capacity to do it.

    I still believe in Pruitt, that will start to change if he keeps trotting out JG. It is painfully obvious he cannot run an offense.

    I think all 3 will play in the NFL and all 3 will have wasted their talents here. Much like we've seen with every other offensive weapon we've had in the last 15 years.

    If he keeps trotting him out, then he has got some very bad info on his job security.

    We are 0-2 for the first time since 1988. Good to see us accomplishing things that haven't been done in 30 years.
