A wise man never underestimates their opponent, be it business or life in general. Butch Jones is a wise man I do believe so bring it on WK, Butch and the troops will be ready.

No question the Vols will have to ramp it up considerably to beat WKU. I think they could beat them with a performance like they had Saturday, but it will be much harder to come up with such a performance, especially on defense, against a no-doubt confident WKU team. I'm glad the older Vols remember the butt-whipping Petrino inflicted on them at Arkansas, but I hope they aren't so focused on getting revenge that they neglect all the little things they did so well on Saturday. These Vols can't afford to overlook anybody. They have to look at this season as a series of steps to get better and not worry about the final record or getting back at everybody who beat them in the past.

You are so right..I know Jones is well aware of this and is doing everything he possibly can to have the Vols ready..all we can ask till more talent arrives...
