Inspired play isn't going to make up for Scarlett and Callaway being out.  The D will keep Florida in the game, but the offense has to do SOMETHING.  The OC is going to be up in the booth instead of the sideline, so we'll see how that goes.

UT's new QB got a chance to toss the ball around in a live game without major resistance, and UF's new QB would've benefited greatly from that, but hasn't had the chance.

Florida rolls vs. 1st-half Tennessee (GT game), but can't keep up with 2nd-half Tennessee.  I guess we'll find out - that's why they play the game.

My guess is a 21 - 24 game either way. My son is excited because he thinks if we win this game that we will start another string of wins over the gators. As I explained to him. I've witnessed MANY Vol teams that had better talent lose to the gators when they should've won because they played uptight or attempted to sit on a big lead. What year was it that TN went into the locker room with a 31 - 7 lead and sat idle in the second half to allow the gators win 62 - 34 or something like that. That was a very frustrating game and since those days I don't count the Vols in the mix until the clock runs out.

I think DW was the QB for UF that year... it was a night game, and yes- it was VERY frustrating.  Very much so.
Albert Haynesworth is in the news about this game... he's publicly calling for CBJ to 'throttle' the gators if they can... he is right, too.. his position is to cut the defense loose instead of 'bend don't break' allowing these kids to play like they were recruited to play.  all out... he's calling on the O to be let loose too- to get the ball to the playmakers.  to give them a chance to do what they do best instead of conservative playcalls and attempting to play chess with them.  I fully agree.  win or lose, leave nothing on that field- nothing... if you lose after you've given 150% effort, you hold no grudges.  if you lose wondering "what if" it will always haunt you.   there are a LOT of ghosts from this series, and it's because of playing scared........... just play the damn game.  play it to the bone.

If Albert Haynesworth has ANY influence on your HC, then you're definitely in trouble.

The '95 game was 30-14 in the 2nd quarter.  UT's play-calling didn't change much in the 3rd quarter, they just started turning the ball over.  Florida went on a 48-0 run before the Vols scored again late.  62-37.  Jay Graham had 2 fumbles, but the Vols didn't stop passing or anything.

There's a series of Florida games on youtube - 15 min each.  Amazing. 

People remember the big hit Wright had on Kent in this game - causing a fumble.  But on the very next play, Wuerffel fumbled and UT ran it in for a TD.  The biggest overlooked play in this game was the missed 22-yd FG by Tennessee.

Afroman, I don't think Albert Haynesworth or his words have any influence on Butch but I do think he brings up a good point. LET THE GUYS PLAY. Stop holding them back with conservative play on BOTH sides of the ball. Either play balls to the wall or sit in the stands. I get so sick of predictable and conservative play calling. I'm not made that way. If a person beats me at anything it's not because I gave them an immediate advantage because I'm scared to give it 110%.

As an example why is our Dline playing 1 to 1.5 yards off the ball? Why are the DB's playing 5 to 8 yards off the WR? That pisses me off. GET IN THEIR DAMN FACE.

I was excited when TN hired Shoop. He turned Vandy's defense into SEC players with their limited talent. He turned Penn St's defense around in one year. TN has better talent but we still look lost and suspect on D. Is it because of Butch's conservative approach with the bend but don't break approach? I'm beginning to think that may be the case.

If TN plays scared today, the gators will kick their ass and rightly so but I'm hoping they play loose and wide open; balls to the wall.

Things many, nearly every fan wants if their team looks spotty:

1.  The backup QB
2.  More aggressive defenses
3.  More innovative play calling on offense
4.  More passes to the tight end
5.  More screens
6.  Fewer screens (right after one is blown up)
7.  More blitzes
8.  Fewer blitzes, right after one lets a delay RB get 35 yards.
9.  Better offensive linemen (they grow on trees)
10.  Wishing they had player X who was committed but couldn't make the academics.

Very true Cincy. But if the issues are habitual over the years regardless of the hiring and firing of the assistant coaches, it's systemic.

I'm sure Shoops style of D play hasn't changed between Vandy, Penn St, and TN, so what gives.?

Well when Florida has the ball, prepare to take a nap, then.  UT's sleepy D vs UF's sleepy O.  Yawn.

Butch Jones is the biggest piece of shit game day coach. So many wasted opportunities today because between him and Larry Scott there can't be more than 4 brain cells between the 2 of them. Passing from the 1 yard line to waste a TD or FG. Throwing 3 times from the 10 when Kelly was running all over the gators. I'm going to next weeks game because I've already bought the tickets but I'm done with the Vols FB after that for the remainder of the season. Butch Jones is pathetic. We are the SEC model of mediocrity under his reign and will continue to be because he's a clueless dumbass.

Like I said in a post above, TN has always found ways to lose to the gators when TN was the better team. Obviously the gators have the better teams at times but today wasn't one of them.

Worst gator team we've faced and we get this crap fest.  We should have won by two touchdowns if we had a different coach. Hell if we had a middle of the road Div 2 coach we would have won.  Butch has got to go. A school with our history and championships should not settle for this level of production. The powers that be are too cheap to pull in a good coach.  
Final records for both schools. Tennessee 6-6. Florida 6-5 unless they can make up the cupcake game.
