It seems that the Vols need to develop a plan to "spy" on opposing QBs the rest of the way. This of course puts a lot of pressure on guys to play "gap control" defense to contain all the threats made even more effective by running QBs who have to be accounted for on every play. Looking forward to the day when the Vols can pose that kind of threat to THEIR opponents. In fact, that was what I was hoping for when I saw the headline, e.g., a decision to play one of our freshmen or a commitment from a top-notch HS dual-threat QB.
