Crompton is terrible, he very well may be a good practice QB but he blows in meaningful games. Nick Stephens isnt great either but I will take anyone over Crompton. BTW at least my Blue Raiders destroyed Memphis.....Sun Belt Champions BABY!!!!!1!!!!!!
I swear I thought I was watching a replay of a game from last year. No protection from the offensive line, Crompton drops back, has time to quickly scan the field and then either forces a pass somewhere or takes off to gain an astounding two ******* yards. Running game was very average, and we can't win because that is our greatest strength on offense.
I thought the defense was solid, and they kept us in that game. The two stops before we got the ball back (and ultimately turned it over on downs) were very impressive.
We do have some players on both side of the ball. I think Teague and Nuke need to have the ball in their hands more, along with a healthy Gerald Jones. Teague didn't have any catches this week. That said, Florida is still going to eat our lunch. Crompton can't handle any pressure whatsoever and Florida is going to bring it every snap. That doesn't bode well for us. I was overly optimistic after the WKU game, and impressed with Crompton, but UCLA really showed us where we stand and that's no better than we were last year. It's a rebuilding year for us.
I don't care what that score was, the Vols and Lane Kiffin were a winner today.
Especially in recruiting. When Tebow, Hernandez, Riley Cooper, Carlos Dunlap, Brandon Spikes, Major Wright, Joe Haden, and whoever else declares for the Draft from Florida, who wins this game in Knoxville next season?
I don't like to believe in moral victories, but with incrompetence at QB I guess I'll have to for at least one season until Tyler Bray gets here. A couple of other things I noticed.....
-Art Evans needs to be benched in favor of Vinson or a freshman because he was definitely the weak link in our secondary.
-Gerald Jones is probably our most overrated player. He shouldn't be starting. Any other of our WRs would have hopefully not just walked out of bounds on that one play like he did. His route running in the UCLA and UF games were atrocious.
- Montario Hardesty is a beast. Just think how crazy he'd be going if he had just a decent QB to take that 8th man out of the box, or if he had a better o-line.
- Our defense is pretty legit.
