ELIZABETHTON — Coaches often provide two scrimmage reviews. One comes immediately afterward. The other comes after a lengthy film review.
The good news, coach Derek Dooley said Monday, is that the film confirmed what he saw in person: The Vols played well on Saturday.
"There was a lot of toughness and effort that was demonstrated, and I thought we managed the situation part of it better than we ever have," Dooley said. "Now, we had a ton of administrative problems, penalties and that sort of thing that we need to work on."
Dooley said that senior cornerback Marsalis Teague had the best scrimmage of his career.
"I'm proud of him for that. He started making some plays in the deep part of the field that historically he hadn't made," Dooley said. "He's doing it because he is playing with a little more confidence and he's trusting his technique. It showed on the film, so I hope he continues. We need him."
