I watched a little of the #2 vs #3 Tennessee/ Georgia Tech game from the 1950s in preparation for this. That little pitch looked just like ye olden football.

Vols showing great sideline to sideline speed and assignment discipline. Just need our passing offense to get uncorked assuming we’really not going to pick up 5ypc against GT.

I’m a firm believer in the basketball momentum killing timeout in football, and now would be a good time.

Hopefully this isn’t like that 1950s game and that’s the only touchdown.

Well, if you can’t defeat the dive play against an option offense it’s going to be trouble. It’s up to our quarterback to determine if we’ll have a shot or not.
