Last-minute predictions for Vols and Bulldogs — Georgia

2007 had two games where Georgia scuffled against Tennessee in Neyland Stadium and at home against SC. Fromm came out and was missing easy throws and not completing balls that we've used to seeing him make. We still got a lot of room for improvement.

"He talked to the team on Friday". And Sony Michel said the Volunteers' "goose egg" on the scoreboard that the defense generated was well-deserved. That's kind of what we want, a game that matches the championship game between those two games in 2012. What we have to do is, stay ahead of the chains and work to eliminate negative yardage plays.

"We know it was going to be hard to replace a player that's the all-time leading sack (record) holder at the University of Tennessee", defensive end Kyle Phillips said. "We've got to be consistent more than complacent".

Saturday felt a bit like Al Golden's Waterloo at Miami two years ago.

But last week's strugglebus of a four-point win wasn't. You win control of the line, you win the game. Receiver Brandon Johnson has twice as many targets as No. 1 receiver Marquez Callaway, and Tyler Byrd has received just two targets since his return to injury. The Vols have had a winning season in four of those eight years, although Butch Jones does have three those seasons under his belt. He said the player fell on a helmet.

"Every week is a new season", said Jones. "We will not go backward with that".

Virginia Tech went 5-1 at home last season, the first for Justin Fuente as the Hokies head coach. "Last week is last week. I think last week was a big step for us".

Tennessee's third defense was only out-matched in terms of ineptitude by Tennessee's third down offense. If Georgia can limit the production of these two - and that means wrapping up the slippery Kelly - Tennessee will have trouble finding the end zone. We know why now.

The seventh-ranked Georgia Bulldogs conducted a two-hour practice in full pads mostly in their Indoor Athletic Facility Wednesday.

SEEKING TO RUN: Tennessee has the SEC's leading rusher in John Kelly, but the Vols gained just 3.5 yards per carry against UMass last week. "We still have guys that do not strike blockers the right way and do it the right way consistently".

But it's the reason why the Vols will soon be paying almost $10 million to make Jones go away. They've recently had a great 31-3 victory over Mississippi. "That's a tough place to play". With No. 7 Georgia (4-0, 1-0) heading to Neyland Stadium this week, a repeat performance could prove disastrous.

Jones has come across as paranoid and defensive quite a few times during his tenure, even during the good times.

In short, they are getting destroyed by the visiting Bulldogs and there's no way to spin it. You know that. It's loud.

"It felt like were were on the field more than the sideline". He isn't flinching from going back there.

The other team (Tennessee) and its embattled coach (Butch Jones) are hanging on to this season by a thread.

And the ebbs and flows of a season.

And then Tyrique McGhee intercepted the first pass. "We're focusing on being consistent and moving on to the next".

If Kindley is unable to play then Dyshon Sims would be expected to start over him.
