Gameday 9 Vol Stuff

Vols get what is probably their last shot of the season to knock
off a ranked team today.  The problem is, they’ve historically not
been very successful at knocking off a ranked team coached by Steve
Spurrier.  South Carolina has already been the final straw in sending
two former Vol coaches packing.  Nobody knows for certain how important
today’s game is for Dooley but you’ve got to suspect that a poor
showing by the Vols in Columbia is the last thing he needs at this point.
Nobody can know for certain what the Vols mindset is coming off the
beat down by Bama last week but timing may actually be on their side
in this SC matchup.  SC has played UGA, LSU & UF on consecutive game
days.  That’s tough and you got to believe they’re looking forward to
being off on Gameday 10.  So does SC have enough left in the tank to
take care of the Vols before taking a week off?  Lattimore being back
certainly helps their situation in a big way.  He’s a difference maker
and will certainly help make Shaw look like a much better QB than he
looked last week against UF.  And you just know outside of UGA, Tennessee
is the team Spurrier likes to beat more than any other in the SEC. 

So, realistically the Vols have a shot of finally picking up a SEC win
today in SC.  But, they will have to play far better on both sides of the
ball than they did last week.  Back to the earlier question regarding the
Vols mentality, do they have what it takes to bring their A game into
Columbia?  We’ll know about midway through the 1st quarter.  It’s time
they brought their A game to the stadium against a SEC team.  We’ve yet
to see that for 60 minutes this season and time is running out in more
ways than one.
