Hard to argue with many of these comments, both positive and negative. I said when the discussion first arose that I would prefer Peterman not get this start in this big game. Far better QBs than anybody on the current squad have found it hard to deal with Florida, especially at their place. It was disheartening to see my fears realized.
All that said, there were some positives. No doubt the Vols made Murphy look like a Heisman candidate, but with some of the moves he made, it is hard to imagine why he hadn't done enough of that before to get any meaningful playing time. The Vols did a pretty good job on Florida's running game, given the casualties on the D-line. I never got the feeling, even when Peterman was struggling early, that the Vols ever hung their heads. If anything they seemed to believe in themselves more than the coaches did.
