Jim Chaney's players know his philosophy, his schemes and all the X's and O's he can cram into a playbook.

But the best thing about being a veteran coach on a veteran team, Chaney said, is that the players know him personally. They know when he's joking, when he's serious and how all that yelling has a purpose.

"They know it isn't personal when we're getting on their hiney," Chaney said. "They're accepting coaching pretty good right now."

Chaney, Tennessee's offensive coordinator, is one of only two coaches remaining from last year's staff. He came to Knoxville as former coach Lane Kiffin's coordinator, so he predates even current head coach Derek Dooley.

The Vols enter Chaney's fourth year with a veteran quarterback in Tyler Bray, a battle-tested offensive line and one of the most talented receiving corps in the league. That experience, players say, has sped up the pace of the offense in practice.

"You don't have to describe to the young guys what to do. You just call a play and snap the ball real quick," Bray said. "This year I'm much more comfortable."

Chaney said that comfort comes from familiarity, and he feels it, too.

"It goes without saying, if you do something more and more, you get better at it," Chaney said. "So we're more advanced in that way. We understand the concepts a little better, but I think we also know each other a little better, which is what I like the best. It is easier to coach guys you know."

Chaney spoke to reporters for the first time this month after Wednesday's practice. He estimated the Vols have another four days or so of base installation before getting into more specialized preparation for the season.

"It's usually about 10 practices before we start identifying who we are as a football team," Chaney said. "We'll have some big personnel meetings about who's going to be playing and who isn't. Coach (Dooley) is going to make those decisions."

Many of the toughest decisions will come at running back, where this is no established starter in the race between Rajion Neal, Marlin Lane and Devrin Young. Running backs coach Jay Graham said it's too early to establish a pecking order.

"After this first scrimmage (Saturday), things will start to shake out as we get closer to the season," Graham said. "I like their effort. They're trying to do the things that we talk about in the meetings. They're trying to be physical, trying to finish runs, trying to pass-protect and do things the right way. That is the biggest thing that I have been impressed with."

Chaney said there was too much giggling and "silliness" in years past. This year, he senses a more businesslike approach, and he cited the running backs as the best example.

"They're going out and competing with a real professional attitude," he said. "There's no giddiness."

He hopes that maturity will give him the opportunity to try more things on offense.

"I think their brains are better, so with that there's more playbooks, there's more schemes that are available to you," he said. "The aptitude will dictate how deep you're going to play."

I said the day that he was hired that we wouldn't know what Dooley was really capable of until his 3rd year.

If Bray and Hunter hadn't gotten hurt last year, we would have probably been 8-5 or 9-4 (with the bowl game). I'm with you Pompey, this is put up or shut up for Dooley, but this is the one year that we really should be evaluating him on...not 2011 and 2010.

i cant remember a year where we didnt have a clear cut starter at RB. i really hope one or two of the backs steps up this year. last year was debacle to say the least.

Should be a good year offensively. We can hope the defense will make strides forward. It was not just Fulmer who left the cupboard dry. It was the guy who followed him who tried to tear the cupboard down. But now is now and we go forward.

Think more of a team like the one that won Super Bowl XXIII and XXIV with Jerry Rice and John Taylor.

Everybody knows that every DL in the SEC is going to have Tyler Bray in the crosshairs, and their D Coordinators want to make his life miserable.

If UT's O line play as a UNIT can protect Bray then the pass will set up the run and any number of short pass options. The defense will have to give up something; Bray must move the chains if the secondary plays off the line.

If the corners want to press, I like our receivers all day long...

Go watch the video from yesterday with Z Fulton. The D has not gotten to the QB yet and he's confident about it. The pass blocking was good last year. The run blocking was the worst I can remember since the 70s.

Fulton also spoke of vast improvement in run blocking already. They are apparently using a different scheme this year with CSP leading them.

I know it's August sunshine time, but I was very encouraged by listening to him yesterday.

Offensive Coordinator acts like the run game is obviously better.

Jay Grahams message to RB's seems clear to me: "Our guys will have to pass protect if they are going to get on the field...we are going to throw the ball."

Now, if he could recruit a dynamite running back to join in things could get really thick on the hill.

At least our starting offensive line outweighs most of the starting defensive lines they'll face by about 30 pounds/man. (Yes, that's Bama, SC, UGA and FU) There should be some ability to get a push in there, I think.

I guess UT's entire o-line must have an average weight of about 340lbs then. Florida's projected first 4 interior d-linemen are:

- Shariff Floyd - 306
- Omar Hunter - 315
- Jafar Mann - 316
- Trey Orr - 305

That's an average of about 311 lbs across the front. UF's projected DE's average about 280-285. Moreover, UF's d-line destroyed UT's o-line last year and it's pretty much the same players, except for two 5-star recruits UF added at DE (Fowler and Bullard).

In other words, don't get your hopes up.

It's a new season with a new team. We won't know what we've got 'til halfway through the third game. Try not to get too high or too low based on what happens in the first two games. At halftime of the Florida game, people will be buzzing about reality, not speculation. With better injury luck, it could be a lot of fun. Enjoy.

We're all ready for the coach to get this monkey off his back, but he better get control of his QB or we will be dealing with a Steven Garcia-type of situation by mid-season. Why do we have to get headcase QBs? Guys like Cochral, Kelly, Shuler, Manning and Martin acted like men, and men are what are needed to lead this team. Bray needs to be convinced that growing up is his path of least resistance. He's not quite there yet.

What Bray needs is to be held accountable to the real leader on the team. Someone like Al Wilson was back in 1998. He would tell you just like he saw it and everyone would listen to what he had to say because of the respect that he commanded.

Manning got the University sued for sexual harassment and it cost UT a lot of money to settle. I'm glad the coaches didn't overreact to that incident either although it would have been way more justified to suspend Peyton for that than what Bray has done. Some of the other guys you mentioned as examples weren't exactly saints when they were here either?

I'm far more concerned with O line starters. Several RBs will be used anyway, so I don't see deciding who starts as that big of a deal.

Some will doubt Young's ability based on size. He is small, but I have watched him for years. My daughter was his classmate at Bearden (and in the band), and I saw nearly every one of his HS games. He is pretty fast in a straight line, but his lateral acceleration is truly outstanding, as fast as anyone in div 1 football. That's why he is a dangerous punt/kickoff returner. But trust me, his biggest asset is a natural born eye for finding space. Some RBs are just plain good at seeing the hole, and Young is one of them.
