I can't believe UT scheduled Austin Peay for their first game.
Do u guys realize how horrible this program is?
I was raised in Clarksville and remember going to games at the old Memorial Stadium there. It is a very cool stadium. They had astro turf. Ahead of it's time actually. Anyway, they were in the OVC then but eventually got so bad they basically just left or got booted out.
I'm not sure they have EVER had a winning record. Seriously.
All of a sudden they are trying to build the program up by playing patsy to bigger schools.
I guess their pitch to recruits now is that they will get to play in front of 80k people and if their parents buy a special cable package they'll get to see them get annihilated on TV.
I wanna say last yr the Govs played at Wisconsin and lost 71-3. The game wasn't as close as the score indicated.
This really is the ultimate patsy. UT would have a tougher time with Little Sisters of the Poor or some small Baptist college in Kentucky with an enrollment of under 300.
Austin Peay gets hammered by the likes of Youngstown State or Valpo by 20+ pts every year if they're lucky.
Every big school has their patsy games and UT is no exception but this is not going to be any sort of test.
I think it would be better if they scheduled someone a little bit more challenging to get ready for the tough season.
Oh well. I guess it'll be fun watching em completely destroy the hapless Governors.
