What a stupid question!!!!!

The short answer? NO. Of course not. We have receivers who have been inconsistent and rarely on the same page with a quarterback who all too frequently misses them even when they are open. Our offense is at best a "work in progress." Not sure I agree with that EVEN on the coaching either. Richt is a proven SEC coach and CBJ just got here. The entire system is new, so I give a SIGNIFICANT EDGE to Georgia. Our guys will give it their all and I know they will make some plays, but we just don't yet have the athletes to keep up. GEORGIA 34 VOLS 20

Very well stated. The Oregon game showed me we are just not up to par in the talent level. Yes, we have some key players- but we do not have great talent at all skill positions and there is a deep fall off from 1st string to 2nd string. Give Butch a few years and I believe we will be fine.

I don't see the any edge ..or any even..and I will consider it a moral victory to hold the Dogs to less than 40..I just keep hoping to see a well coached team give 100% effort..I don't think I have seen that yet..

Georgia can hang 50 on any defense. With our lack of difference makers on offense, we can't outscore them. We need to hold them to about 24 and take our chances.

Agreed.

Strongly disagree with two areas that you gave the Vols the edge. Offensive line, really? UT's OL was supposed to be one of the best because of experience. Face it, they have proven to be a total bust and are average at best. And Coaching. Give me a break. Richt won't make the hall of fame but Butchie Boy and his microphone won't make it as long as Doofus did.

Gee, thanks for the insightful analysis.....moron.

As I have said before the offensive line has been a big disappointment for two years now. So goes the QB so goes the offense. We have a C grade QB at best.Very erratic with his throws, throws behind the receivers a lot and into double coverage, this is not good.

"Butchie Boy" & "Doofus" you have lost all credibility on this site. Are you actually paying to post asinine comments? If so you are one sick pup!

IF we hold them to 24, we'll have our chances.
