News Sentinel columnist John Adams said he was impressed with Tennessee freshman quarterback Josh Dobbs, who made his debut on Saturday in a loss at No. 1 Alabama.

"He didn't look like a guy who was out of place," Adams said Monday on the News Sentinel Sports Page. "He looked like a guy who had been playing. He showed he can run the ball effectively enough to take the read option seriously."

In the bigger picture, however, Adams said he thought the Vols were a long way from turning around a seven-game losing streak in the series.

"The disparity between the programs is so great, and as long as Nick Saban stays there I just don't see changing the course of the series," he said.

The Vols (4-4, 1-3 SEC) play No. 10 Missouri (7-1, 3-1) on Saturday at Faurot Field in Columbia (TV: ESPN, 7 p.m.)
