  • Vol's line went from having no talent (Fulmer and Kiffin era) to ******* stacked. I love coach Dooley.

    EDIT: My favorite recruit so far has to be Marlin Lane, he reminds me of Jammal Lewis and Arian Foster. I can't wait to see how big he gets.

    • 104.5 had Antonio Richardson on the radio today and he sounds like a great kid. Our offensive class combined with our freshmen from last year are gonna be deadly.

      I just hope our JUCOs on defense pan out this year because we're going to need them.

      I'm worried about this year's starters at linebacker. It will probably be our weak link on the team.

      • DL Coach Chuck Smith is gone. Lance Thompson will take over the DL, and they've upgraded Peter Sirmon to LB Coach.

        :(

        But if Smith becomes Titans DL Coach, then I'll be happy!

            Lol, figured this was coming after reading your FB status. We sucked worse before him though...

            • True, I like Bruce as a person, I do. And he does some great things as a coach, but I just feel he's going to be limited in those things once the 'AA hammer comes down. Plus as a former and still current basketball playing junkie I've always been more partial to the more low-key/in-game coaches.

              It's probably personal bias because of my ties to him, but I'd love to see Rick Byrd get the gig. He deserves a bigger platform after what he's done at Belmont.

              • Looks like Bruce Pearl will be out sometime tomorrow or Monday. I have mixed feelings about it.

                In other news, I got a retweet from The Eric Berry yesterday. Feels good.

                • Well, it's not 100% official but it looks like Pearl is out. Even though I wanted him gone I'm still kinda upset about this. Careful what you wish for I guess.

                  What is everyone thinking about replacement-wise?

                  • Quadruple Post!!!

                    Just thought I'd brag that incoming Vol and 5 star recruit Maurice Couch is following me on twitter. It's not a big deal or anything though.

                        Highest rated guys are WR DeAnthony Arnett, DB Byron Moore, and OL Antonio Richardson. But, the biggest impact will probably come from JUCO transfer DT Maurice Couch. Also high hopes for LB/DE Curt Maggit, a light but super athletic pass-rusher, OT/TE Cameron Clear, a likely TE-turned-LT, and LB A.J. Johnson.

                        On the offensive depth chart, Tyler Bray is the likely starter after finishing off last season. He has the physical makeup to become a great QB. 6'6 with a gun, but he needs to cut down on the mental mistakes. He has the "**** it, I'm going deep!" attitude. But then again, if I had Justin Hunter galloping downfield, I'd do that too. Sometimes, he makes a throw that makes your mouth drop. Sometimes, he throws straight to the MIKE LB to lose the game. But he was just a true freshman, so the fact he didn't pull a Compton is very promising.

                        I think Justin Hunter is our most talented player on offense, maybe the whole team. A track and field star, the guy can outrun and outleap nearly anybody. He's pretty similar to Sidney Rice. Da'Rick Rodgers, a higher rated player coming in, will probably start opposite him. No idea who starts at TE.

                        At RB, there's Tauren Poole, a poor man's Montario Hardesty. Then there's Raijon Neal and a bunch of freshmen...yaaaaay.

                        OL looks a whole lot better, but they're still young. OC James Stone was Freshman All-American, and true freshman OT JaWuan James looks like the future at LT, after manning RT so early. JerQuari Schofield handled OG pretty well. I forget who the other guard is. And an upper classman (well, compared to the rest) played a lot too, I think LT for a good bit since he was really the only one who could. Dallas Thomas I believe it was. Someone else played the other OG too, but I forget.

                        Voodoo or Doughie can do defense, or specify some on offense. Or I can do it tonight. Gotta go to work now.

                        • Zach fulton was the other guard. We also have marcus jackson and alex bullard coming in to help at guard. I'll go a little more in depth when im not on mobile.

                          • As far as defense goes I'm taking a wait and see approach. I think the starting defensive line will be more talented and productive than last year's. We still have some depth issues though, especially at end.

                            The starting defensive line will most likely consist of sophomores Jacques Smith and Marlon Walls at end and sophomore Maurice Couch and senior Malik Jackson at tackle. Primary backups will include Corey Miller and Daniel Hood.

                            Linebacker looks to be the major question mark at this point. Our best linebacker Herman Lathers recently broke his leg and is out for the season. (Of course)
                            Austin Johnson, Greg King and Daryl Vereen are possibly the opening day starters. Two seniors and a junior in that group. Sophomore John Propst could also get a look. He's purely an inside backer so if he starts Austin Johnson would slide outside.
                            UT brought in three really good LBs this recruiting class even with Lamar Dawson dipping on us (un bastardo). Christian Harris and his more heralded classmates A.J. Johnson and Curt Maggitt all could see great playing time with one or two of them possibly being starters by the end of the year.

                            The secondary should be the strength of the defense. We return basically 5 guys with starting experience with Prentiss Waggner, Brent Brewer, Janzen Jackson, Marsalis Teague and Eric Gordon. Also we're throwing a couple of talented JUCOs in the mix with corners Izauea Lanier and Byron Moore. Then we're bringing in three very talented freshman in corner Justin Coleman (an EE), and safeties Brian Randolph and Pat Martin.

                            We're also still waiting to see if highly touted safety Eddrick Loften and freshman corner Tino Thomas make it in but they'd be a luxury at this point.

                            Special teams will hopefully be improved this year as well. UT had all kinds of problems with kick returns last year, especially at punt returning. For this the coaches signed return specialist Devrin Young. He's tiny but super quick and fast and hopefully he'll be our version of Brandon James.

                            Also, highly recruited Michael Palardy should take over kicking duties from the much maligned Daniel Lincoln and number one punting recruit from 2010 Matt Darr should be solid at punter.

                            • Man, this was our OL last year:

                              LT Dallas Thomas [True Sophomore]
                              LG JerQuari Schofield [RS Freshman]
                              C James Stone [True Freshman]
                              RG Zach Fulton [True Freshman]
                              RT JaWuan James [True Freshman]

                              Hahahahahahaha! That's insane! Darin Gooch got some time too, and I think James Stone played LG for Schofield when JQ got hurt. It was Gooch at C, Stone at LG, and when JQ got healthy, they moved Stone to C. I hope they keep him there too. Posters at VN say OG is his natural position, but I think OC is the second most important OL position and I want a stud there.

                              I've heard great things about Marcus Jackson, and getting Bullard and his experience will make him great depth. I think Antonio Richardson could definitely play RG too. Plus, there's Mack Crowder but he looks like a natural OC.

                              • Dallas Thomas was a redshirt but it's all good!

                                I'm thinking the two-deep at OL this year will look like...

                                LT - Dallas Thomas (RSJR)
                                LG - JerQuari Schofield (RSSO)
                                C - James Stone (SO)
                                RG - Zach Fulton (SO)
                                RT - Jawuan James (SO)

                                Then the primary backups will be Antonio Richardson at tackle, Alex Bullard at center and Marcus Jackson at OG. Bullard could basically back-up every position except maybe LT.

                                Let's hope to God Gooch doesn't see the light of the lineup ever again. He's awful. I'm hoping he'll be one of the guys capped to make room for a bigger signing class for 2012. I know that sounds bad, but oh well.

                                Also, Jarrod Shaw got some time at guard last season. Especially at the start of the season and during the injuries. He was pretty bad as well.
