    I'm sorry. I know it's not popular, but I have to blame these defensive injuries on Kirby. People always say "defense wins championships". And mostly it is true. It's because of offense, not scoring 100 points, which would help, but mainly controlling the game. Kirby not being just enough aggressive on offense, by going for more 1st downs towards the end of the game, caused those injuries. After UT went on that long td drive at the end of the game, Kirby decided it would be a good idea to run 3 straight times into the middle and punt again. Just to put the defense right back out there. The game was by all intentions over. Should of thrown the ball to try and pick up the 1st down.

    I will say it again, if you don't throw a pick 6, or a scoop and score fumble, as long as your offense has the ball, the other team has a 0% chance of scoring, period.

    Living in TN, the radio was all about how it seemed Hooker was "off", no credit to the defense, by the callers that is. And how they scored more points than anybody. MG guest this week from knoxville, gave more credit to the defense.

    Sorry, totally got side tracked there. Lol. So when I say be more aggressive on offense, I mean go after 1st downs, and hold the ball. I honestly believe 45 points against everyone will be enough to win, but really helps when the defense doesn't have to play as much. So come on kirby, give rest to the defense, keep the ball on offense.

    GO DAWGS!!!!!!

    I sure hope Big D will heal up and be back soon. Dawgs need him. What a Warrior he is !! He got hurt three times at least but came back in !! The last time got him. Although I realize this is not an Exact sign as we’ve seen that later on it still proved to be really bad, But at least after he was helped to stand up he walked off the field on his own power. And he Seemed to be walking without a limp. Devonte deserves tons of credit for his play this season. He’s an instrumental part of this team Defense. Prayers he’s OK and All our injured Dawgs.

    It seemed like the only time the fast pace everyone was worried about from Tn. only worked the first time. It looked like the Dogs figured it out pretty quick. They tried to get it going again through out the game but it never worked as good as the first time. Cook looked very competent I thought, along with many others. I love this football team!
