Practicing it against it is very tough because you don't know what to expect and I think it's going to help us in the long run. So yeah, I'm sick about it. It was arguably the most impressive performance of the season by any team.
While Wimbush is far from a Heisman contender, he is probably one of the most underappreciated players in college football right now. It doesn't matter. No team cares what you did last week. Well, maybe a little. He was the only Georgia defensive back to break up more than one pass on the day, as Dormady continued to target McGhee in coverage throughout the contest. "They just out played us today; that's what it comes down to. It's getting them to play well, putting the right package together, and putting the flawless storm together with the talent that we had, and getting these guys to play well", Smart said. Heck, even the years after you saw Ole Miss and Mississippi State being up to the forefront.
The Vols had just 43 yards total offense at halftime. Then a run for 3. He wasn't great against Arkansas last Saturday, but showed why he was such a highly-rated dual-threat quarterback coming out of high school, tossing for 216 yards and two touchdowns, while adding 79 more yards on the ground as well.
And who do they get to match up against this week?
Tennessee coach Butch Jones did not mince words last week after the Volunteers escaped with a narrow victory over MA, and his team will have plenty to improve on with No. 8 Georgia coming to Knoxville on Saturday. At Neyland Stadium! This is not your dad's Tennessee of the SEC.
The Vols were overmatched against Georgia's defense, and nearly every break went against them, too, including an underthrown deep ball that was broken up and tipped to Georgia's J.R. Reed for an interception. Even on the road, yes please. It was a huge win for the Bulldogs program that has historically fallen on those big prime-time games.
The Yellow Jackets lone loss was a 42-41 overtime defeat against the aforementioned Volunteers, as four point underdogs on a neutral field.
North Carolina is 1-3 SU/ATS, with its lone win coming against Old Dominion and two of its losses coming as the favorite. Kelly, the SEC's leading rusher going into Saturday action, ran 16 times for 44 yards, well below his 112.5-yard average. Last week the Vols muddled through a game with 0-5 UMass. And that win propelled Georgia 2 weeks later to obliterate a Mississippi State team that looked to be a contender in the SEC West to Alabama. The most important thing for Tennessee on offense is finding a healthy balance. Dormady was 3-of-12 for 11 yards and two picks. He leads the SEC in rushing yards (450) and has recorded six touchdowns on top of that. 305 total yards. Is that good?
Michel scored on a 21-yard run, Brian Herrien found the end zone from 1 yard out and David Marvin kicked a 19-yard field goal.
