Gameday 4 Vol Stuff

Gameday 4 finds the Vols trying to close out the first month of a season with a win against a dangerous opponent that has already pulled one upset on Coach Dooley (and Saban) when he was at LSU. I’m not expecting this Tennessee team to overlook any team on their schedule as the coaching staff and players know better than anybody that they simply have to show up every gameday with their best effort to have any chance at the W.  Picking up the W on the last gameday of September would be big for the Vols as they could have a little mojo going into what looks like a brutal month of October on the schedule.  LSU, Georgia, Alabama and SC will is a gauntlet run for any team, much less a young team with less than
a full roster of scholly players.  Let’s hope that the Vols can take the lessons learned in the last 2 tough losses and fix the mistakes that in many cases have been game changers.  We’re watching some freshmen grow up this season that will be anchors on some potentially very competitive Vol teams over the next 2-3 seasons.  It’s a tough way to do it but some
good young players are getting all the experience they can handle this fall out of necessity.  All the best today to the coaches and players as they try to close out September with a .500 record against a very dangerous UAB team that will give it 100% to take out a SEC team on Gameday 4.
