I had my volume turned down, what the hell is the deal with that garbage can on the Tennessee sideline? Is that where they plan to burn the remaining years on Butch Jones' contract?

Wasn't paying attention... some motivational thing.

Whenever they force a turnover, the guy who got it runs over and dunks the ball into the raised-up trash can.  Not sure why...

Tough loss last night. Several late mistakes, any one of which would have been the difference.

I would have bet everything I own that Tech was gonna convert that last two point try.


Tennessee's D had nothing in the tank.

It looked like the exact same play they had just scored the TD on. I'm guessing that's exactly what the defense was expecting. Of course a lot of that offense is relatively predictable....stopping it is just much harder than it looks.

They've got about 9 plays... but each one comes in 37 varieties...

 

They lost because the blocker failed to take out the tackler... he blocked him, but the tackler recovered from the block...

3 myths you can count on hearing from the TV guys during a GT game...

 

1. Player-X is selfless, giving himself up blocking when he's a primo RB..   There is nothing selfless about it.   If a PJ player wants to not ride the bench, he will block like crazy, doesn't matter who he is.

 

2. GT can't come back, it's not a quick-score offense.  Total BS.  Not exactly sure about last year, but the year before something like 2/3 of GT's scores took drives of 3 minutes or less.

 

3.  It's a triple-option offense.  No, it is not.  Last time I looked, they ran the triple option ~30% of the time. It's more like the running-oriented equivalent of the run-and-shoot...

That wasn't the mistake I was referring to....that was just a good job by the defense shedding blocks. It was the fumble that gave the ball to Tenn for the game-tying TD, and then the blocked FG. And while it was a forced error from pressure, Marshall's overthrow of a near-certain TD on that final 4th Qtr drive.

Oh, sure.... but all that happened before the last play...

 

As for the last play.... https://www.sbnation...n-overtime-2017
