Orange and White Game a good showing by design

Offense finishes spring with a lot more confidence

A little of the old, but more of the new. That's how Tennessee's annual Orange and White Game broke down Saturday afternoon inside Neyland Stadium.

Like last year, the offense had an impressive day as the White team scored in every quarter but the third in a 41-23 victory over the Orange squad in an offense vs. defense scrimmage. But unlike a year ago, when the Vols struggled offensively all season long, the Vols leave behind spring practice with a more complete understanding of a new scheme.

And a lot more confidence.

"We all came in and picked up the offense," tailback Montario Hardesty said. "All the guys that's here know the offense. Coming out of spring last year, we still didn't know the offense yet. We were still scrambling to know the offense. We definitely made some real good progress."

On Saturday, UT's three quarterbacks combined for 434 yards and four touchdowns, while eight different players combined for 231 rushing yards on 52 carries.

The Vols' running game carried the day in front of 51,488 fans, the second largest crowd for a spring game in UT history.

"I think we ran the ball good, but we should have run the ball good because the defense, they weren't really doing a lot of things. They weren't doing a lot of blitzes," said Hardesty, who rushed for 45 yards on 11 carries and gave the offense a 7-0 lead with the only rushing touchdown of the day. "It was kind of set up for us. We knew where they were going to be."

From that standpoint, Saturday's scrimmage was vanilla for a reason.

"We wanted the offense to play well today," coach Lane Kiffin said. "I kind of knew the answers to the test."

Defensive end Chris Walker said the Orange team, made up of UT's defense, ran just two fronts all days. According to Kiffin, the offense used only about 20 percent of its playbook.

The reason? Saturday's scrimmage will be re-broadcast on regional television, and Kiffin didn't want to give away too much before the season begins on Sept. 5 against Western Kentucky.

"That's a powerful tool for our opponents," Kiffin said.

This spring, Tennessee's most potent weapon appears to be its running game, which should get an added boost in fall camp with the arrival of highly rated tailback prospects David Oku and Bryce Brown.

UT's top three tailbacks - Hardesty, Tauren Poole and Toney Williams - all reeled off runs of 15 yards or longer Saturday afternoon. Those three players accounted for 201 rushing yards on 42 carries for an average of nearly 4.8 yards a carry.

"Coach, he's such a competitor, he loves smacking people in the mouth," guard Vladimir Richard said. "He loves getting people tired to the point where they want to quit. That said, I feel that we might hang our hat on the running game until it's proven otherwise that we can't do it."

UT's quarterbacks all had solid, if unspectacular performances.

B.J. Coleman led the way with 160 yards on 13-for-22 passing with two touchdowns, including one that sealed the win for UT's offense after the defense closed the gap to 27-23 at the end of the third quarter.

His 4-yard pass to Quintin Hancock, who led all receivers with eight catches for 96 yards, capped an 80-yard drive that took 8:54 and gave the offense a 34-23 lead.

Nick Stephens, limited for much of the spring with a broken wrist, was 11-for-21 for 131 yards and a touchdown to Brandon Warren at the end of the first half.

Jonathan Crompton, who leaves spring practice as the leader for the starting job, completed 14 of his 27 passes for 143 yards and a 16-yard touchdown to Austin Rogers on his last drive of the game. He was also responsible for the offense's lone turnover - an interception that went right to linebacker Rico McCoy.

Crompton felt good about the offense's performance, although he acknowledged the restrictions placed on both sides of the ball.

"It was a mixture of both," Crompton said when asked if the offense's performance was more due to its own ability or restrictions placed on the defense for the scrimmage. "We are getting more comfortable with the offense and with each other within the offense. I think that helps a tremendous amount. I think moreso we're getting more comfortable with each other."

And while last year's spring game produced big numbers from the offense, UT's players entered the summer still trying to understand its new offense. This year, players say they feel more comfortable and prepared for fall camp.

"I think that our confidence is really up there," Richard said. "We're not feeling down at all as a unit right now. We feel like whoever we line up against, we're going to go and run the ball because we have the people to do it. We're physical enough. We know our assignments."

And despite giving up lots of points and yards to the offense, Kiffin said UT's defense is better than it showed on Saturday.

"Don't let today make you feel any different about the defense," he said. "We're going to have a great defense."

I was at the game and what I was most impressed with was how sharp and well prepared both units looked. There weren't any false starts or any real miscues at all. Only once was there a play where the wr and qb seemed to miscommunicate.

That being said, I am glad they admitted the D was playing it down, cause the offense really moved the ball at will this game, which was disturbing considering how bad they are said to be.

Also, Denarius Moore had an amazing catch in the first quarter. He's going to be good.

Any of you wishing for Nick Stevens to be QB you might as well crawl under a rock. He was horrible. John and BJ were pretty good but not great.

Brandon Warren will be a stud along with Quinton Hancock. Hardesty looked great as did all the running backs when they were working on the running game. Toney Williams will be a stud eventually.

I met Montori Hughes personally and asked "will you hit them hard today or take it easy on em"? He said " No Sir, when I hit them they will know it". His arms are huge "HUGE" he has the physique to be awesome.

Also talked to Gerald Jones and he is pumped about the direction they are headed.

As for Lane being in the huddle today, they have been so focused on installing the offense that they have not worked on calling in plays from the sideline so don't be worried.

Monte said, "The defense will be very limited today, don't worry gang". He was so pumped up walking the VOL WALK he kept raising his hands and it was awesome. Everytime he did that all the fans just started screaming.

In closing, I hope most of you made it to the game but if you didn't I hope I helped some of you understand what it was like. All I can say is "GO BIG ORANGE" ...

Also, coach O was huge running down the Vol Walk like you might imagine. He was screaming and ranting and raving. Lets Go Tennessee!!!!

All of you that couldn't make it you will be very impressed when you come this fall to watch in person... Have a great night everyone and most of all GO VOLS!!!!!!!!

The stadium still needs alot of work.....

Hope that helps. As far as the stadium, it's still torn apart on the west facade and won't be ready for a while. They did get padding in some sections of the walls near the end zones, though. I guess they learned their lesson from earlier in spring practice.

I'm kind of intrigued by this Rozier kid - hoping he is different and can run the offense. But, if it has to be one of the current 3, I hope it's Coleman -JMO.

I was at the game and I will give a few observations.

O-Line-overall they were pretty solid at protection, opened some big holes for the RB...granted the offense ran a lot of play-action passes in which they moved the pocket...to be honest I'm not sure if I have ever seen it done so many times.

RB-they all looked pretty good, Hardesty had a few good runs as did Toney Williams, Poole also seemed to run with passion, like I said the O-Line made a few holes that a truck could drive through.

WR-Brandon Warren was good, he made one catch that made people stand-up...Hancock also made some plays...Moore and Jones also made a few plays, Moore broke free on one play but was overthrown but a hair.

QB-they made some good plays...Crompton came out on fire...but then he throws the ball directly to McCoy...not a receiver around...he also overthrew receivers on more than one occasion. Didn't seem to throw the ball very well when rolling out of the pocket but he was not alone...Nick wasn't much better...he missed several open receivers, not by over-throwing the ball but by not passing it to them...BJ showed flashes at times but then again he had one series that was just terrible...he had a receiver run up the sideline wide open for 6 and he threw the ball SHORT, which I thought was amazing...the next play he he overthrew on a seam route...granted it was a tough pass to make but if he is going to be good he has to make that pass, he didn't.

Again, they had some good plays but the still seemed locked in on 1 guy because on several plays were guys had one-on-one coverage or were in a soft spot of the zone but never had the ball thrown to them...instead the QB's[all of them] held the ball until the last second possible and tried to force the ball.

One thing that I thought was interesting was the Lane was on the field the entire time...getting down on one knee every time to call the plays, he was also aligning players as they were getting set...not sure if that means that he didn't trust the QB's to do that or what.

What i've read about Rozier doesn't sound promising but hope springs eternal!

GahLee writes:

No report on the Defense from me...I paid little attention to them seeing as we will be solid there...they didn't get a great pass rush, in part because of so many play-action roll-out passes[at least 20 times]. Guys were running wide open at times only to be overthrown...if we had a QB that could make reads and quickly and accurately throw the ball the D would have looked very bad on this day...

Wouldn't worry about that though guys, I have a nagging suspicious that the dogs were called off to some degree, as mush as I hate to say it, I think that Lane knows they his QB's and offense in general are in need of a confidence boost, and us as fans also need that in them as well.

Another thing that I thought was interesting was that the "starters" were still out there at the end of the game. They need it...I can only hope that these guys take this summer serious and go out day in and day out working to get better...if they do that we will be OK. If they don't we will be relying on our Defense once again.

Good crowd and pretty exciting first half considering the offense and defense was so vanilla. I was really impressed with the running backs and Denarius Moore is a star in the making. He made one really incredible catch on a tipped ball. Brandon Warren also looked good. One of the best things I brought from the game is I believe we can line up and get a couple of yards when we need it, something we couldn't do last year. IMO the defense will be as good as last year when allowed to do the things Monte needs them to do. We seemed to come through the game pretty much healthy although we did lose one defensive lineman early. Sorry, I don't know who it was. Quarterback play was OK. If we can just get them to not beat us I think we will be competitive. Can't wait until the season opener when we get to see what we really can do!

Crompton threw an interception right into McCoy's bread basket. He does not look good and he has never had over 55 percent completions dating all the way back to high school. Rozier will be the fourth team quarterback if he bothers to stick around at all. Geez, we're talking about a guy here who has been playing pro baseball for four years and has never even lined up for a college football practice, unbelievable.

FWBVol writes:

I live in Florida and wasn't able to make it up to Knoxville, but I did listen to the radio broadcast through the utsports.com site.

Lane Kiffin did a quick radio interview after the game and he said Crompton's INT wasn't Crompton's fault. The tight end he was throwing to turned the wrong way on the route after JC had released the ball.

I don't know who the QB will be, and I just want it to be the guy that gives us the best chance to win. I just hope people will lay off Crompton until all the facts are in.

I know this is totally off the subject but I wanted to pay a small tribute to one of the best friends I've ever had.

He was a devoted husband and father who loved to play softball and golf. To say that Fuzzy "bled orange" would be an understatement. We made many trips to Knoxville over the years to see our beloved VOLS play. At his request, I along with the other pallbearers showed up today at the funeral home in our matching Tennessee attire. He was in a white casket with a big orange "T" on the front. At the end of the service, the funeral director pulled out a box of orange sharpies and announced that that "Fuzzy" wanted every to sign his casket. So as "Rocky Top" began playing over the sound system, eveyone(including some BAMA,UGA,LSU & Florda fans who were also dressed in orange) signed our buddie's casket. He was not done yet. Bryan drove a semi truck for FedEx for 15 years. So instead of a hearse, we loaded him into the back of the FedEX truck that he had driven everyday. As we said our good byes, 20 FedEx semi trucks wrapped around the cemetary and simultaneously blew their air horns like a 21 gun salute. Some people might not understand why he wanted these things, but I know that he wanted to do something that everybody would get a kick out of. Another friend of ours said it appropriately during the service, "Fuzzy would be with us in spirit today but he had sideline tickets to the Orange and White game".

Did I really read that quote from Kiffin correctly? He is afraid other teams are going to watch Tennessee's spring game on a regional broacast and know what they are going to do? Thats funny. Is he really that worried about Western Kentucky? Run your offense and run your defense...its as simple as that, especially when you have players learning a new system. This couldnt scream any more from Kiffin that he knows he does not have the personel to go toe to toe with teams like UF and Bama. Sorry Lane, but Florida and Bama will gladly show you their playbooks and still beat Tennessee come this fall. Hopefully his secretness of the playbook for the spring game helps them beat Western kentucky.

Pretty much agree with all your observations. Posted these thoughts on the other article as well:

-Hughes looked good but he has to work on his conditioning. He was gassed after the second series.
-Quarterback is still an issue. Coleman looked better than Crompton to me. Jonathan makes some good plays and then he will make a couple that will get you beat. He looks like even some basic coverages confuse him at times. He may start against W.K. but I'll also be there's a quick hook if he struggles. Coleman looks like a definite possibility to me.
-Warren, Hancock, and Moore looked good at receiver. Moore made several difficult catches. The tight ends made some decent catches as well.
-Taurean Poole looked good running the ball.
-The most impressive thing I saw today was an offensive line that looked in shape. None of the spare tires that I saw the last couple of years.
-Eric Berry will make a huge difference in that defense. (Understatement I know but they missed him out there.)
-I worry about our linebackers. Nick Reveiz may be a fabulous kid and a hard worker but he is SMALL for a middle LB in this conference. I'm wondering if he can hold up against the lines that he'll see every week.
-Crowd was great. Announced at 51,000

Tcounty, I am sorry for your loss. I live just north of Atlanta and last year a good friend of mine died in a car accident. His funeral was alot like your friends'.So when all of us say that someone "bleeds orange" Some of us truly do. Again,I am sorry for your loss.
