If we keep it under an Oregon 30 point win, I'll be surprised.

I hope I'm wrong, but I don't see any way we win against Oregon, even if we get 7 turnovers again. With our horrible offense and a defense that just isn't very good it's going to be ugly. I really hope I'm wrong and maybe missing something somewhere, but Worley just doesn't look like a BCS level college QB and the defense still gives up way too many big plays.

Playing the #2 ranked team in the country on the road not a good combination for any unranked team. Vegas is right more than they are wrong, Just sayin !

Oregon may well be the best team in the country. I hope the Vols do well, but I do not think our defense is ready for all they will throw at us.

All I expect from the Vols is to continue the improvement in effort and execution..and I think we will see that in every game..if this team plays to the best of their ability..can't ask any more..

Just looking for continued improvement again this week. If we stay fairly close in this game, I will be happy. To win it would be fantastic. Go Vols.

OK now Robert, let's just keep our perspective and not throw our orange hats in the closet for the season just yet. Yes, Worley was pretty bad in the first half and is just not in sync with receivers half the time. BUT, the O is NOT horrible nor is the defense subpar. The D forced turnovers, held a very decent offense in check the entire second half, and really shut down the WKU run game by mid third quarter. The O had some nice second half drives and dominated the line of scrimmage on nearly every play. WKU was NOT a bad team at all. But now the big boys and we will see how we do. It would shock the world were Tennessee to play Oregon within 10 points, so lets just go play and see where we are. I think we might be more competitive than you think (or at least I hope so). GO VOLS!!

Exactly as I feel. I feel even better after listening to Butch. Like he said, it's a great opportunity

Considering this would be looked upon as one of the top ten upsets of the season should we win, I think it is a very good opportunity and gauge for our boys to lead into the SEC season win or lose. I have faith in our boys on the line. This will be a tell-tale sign of who our true leaders are in the back seven on defense and our QB/WRs on offense...who quits and who grinds it out. The wake up call is coming but will it be for us or the rest East division?.... GBO!
