    After today if Dooley can win against miss st and hold close to bama and sc then win out I think they will keep him because we are "not supposed" to beat those teams this year. I hate that vol football has gotten to this level but sadly with today's game being so close with a chance to win in the end that will be the tone from the vol nation. By the way Tyler Bray is way way overrated. I had high hopes for this kid this year but he continues to make bad decision after bad decision that costs us games.

    Problem today was the D. At times it looked high schoolish. Totally inept at getting off blocks. Bray didn't play a great game but the team did put up 44 points a supposedly a good Georgia D.

    Yes but Bray made some poor choices on the last few drives even before the fumble. Which is typical for a pocket passing QB that tries to run. Number one recruit for next year needs to be a kicker. Those points could have changes the play calling on that last drive and maybe Bray doesn't have to scramble. Yes I was glued to the tv and yes they did way better than I expected, but I'm still not getting my hopes up. Low expectations like I had today make for a way better feeling after the game when it's close.

    I've always said Bray sucks. No idea where the hype came from. Raw talent and potential, maybe?

    He has never impressed me in big games nor beaten a team worth a poo.

    Because he's tall and throws the ball really hard and really far.

    Because it doesn't register with anyone like the people regurgitating it thinks it does.


    ... No one even talks about UT losing to small schools- because no one cares.

    UT has never lost to D1AA and when is the last time UT lost to a small school? Wyoming?
