Teague moving back to WR this year? Haven't heard that.

Bray, Poole, Hunter on the same team? Was the whtie team snoozing on draft day?

Since when did Teague go back to WR?

orangeman1 writes:

The big question is who was the last one picked? My guess is Raulston the qb transfer that Dooley brought with him from La Tech.

If the White team runs the full field press the orange team better give the ball to Goins to get it across middle field.

orangeman1 writes:

Maybe its just me, but with the roster laid out like that, it looks like we will have more experienced and depth at positions than I realized. I guess I just need to keep reminding myself to keep my expectations in check.

I want to see if he can kick the three point shot.

Looks like they lost the coin flip and picked second and kept picking second at every position. Should have picked defense when the Orange was picking offense. They missed on Hughes and Miller, getting only Jackson.

My guess is the IR list. If Raulston was picked after them then he should quit as he has no friends and no ability. But I doubt that.

True, this isn't the Lady Vols! haha but I doubt he will be calling the plays..

VolGrad writes:

Orange gets the nod in this one.

GBO!

1volfanatic writes:

Orange has all the big time players. Can't wait till saturday. Love them Vols!! GBO!!

VolGrad writes:

Bray to Hunter should be good for at least 3 scores. Milton and Poole for a couple more. And maybe we all find out who has actually been anointed by Tinkerbell to return punts. In any event, Orange runs away with it.

Good one UAVol. Now that was funny!!!!!

the teams are too uneven. most of the future starters (no offense to anybody on white) are on the orange team

Yep. The Orange DBs are all first teamers from last year. Should make it easy for Simms to look good. The White OL and receivers will make the difference. I hope.

Go Big ORANGE (and White)!

I'll hang up and listen to your comments...

Who are Whitten and Little Man?
Are you making up players?
And btw, they weren't NFL players coming out of high schools, they were at the same place as these guys. So you try and sound smart and witty, but you make yourself look like an idiot.
