    Da Rick will be missed in the bigger games. Bray looked shitty I thought, what was up with his dirt balls? The announcers were like "that must've been tipped" and then they would replay and they were like "uh well I guess not "

    Yeah...27 of 41 for 333 yards, no int., 66% completion in first game. He threw o couple of dirt balls. Yep he sucks.

    Reading comprehension much? I didn't say he sucked. But I don't think he looks as good as the stats say.

    Did you not see him throw balls into the dirt? Happened twice at least. Our WRs are good and that helps Bray look good.

    This is NCState. Not an SEC team.

    Never said that NC State are world beaters, but not like they are a cupcake either. They are a solid team that was expected to challenge for acc title.

    Was bray perfect? No. But a couple of bad throws don't over shadow the great throws he made. Hunter, a really good wr, dropped a couple of passes. Bray has an NFL arm and his one weakness is maturity and leadership. Time will tell.

    Bray will most likely be a top 10 pick, maybe top 5. Hunter will go in the first, Patterson should go there as well, but he might fall into the second round
    the defense is much improved

    Vols beat a team they were more talented than handily. Im happy with the result.

    Vols would have lost this game in 2010 or 2011.

    As for VD IMO the Vols have too be competitive in all games and he does need too win a game or 2 that maybe the Vols are overmatched in. Well see.

    Dooley has to beat Alabama, Florida or Georgia. Beating South Carolina wouldn't be impressive imo. Really Florida is down too but a win against Florida always looks good.

    Missouri, Vanderbilt and Kentucky do not count either.


    If he drops one to Troy, VU or UK he is gone.

    He might beat Florida. I mean, Bowling Green had them on the ropes a bit today.

    Not gonna beat Bama or Georgia though.

    Bray is still raw but he has a cannon. He throws one of the best most catchable deepballs I have ever seen.
