It was not just UGA, they beat UMASS 17-13 the week before, also at home. They are very fragile and not playing well at home, and the wolves will be out in force.

They had a similar situation coming into our game last year and lost - with a veteran QB, RBs, WRs, and Barnett at DE. They have none of that this year and will go with a new QB.

The games that we lost under Spurrier were when we were the Big Dog and were favored. We just came in over-confident and did not take the game seriously enough. I don't think this team has a big head and we are growing up quickly.

I've learned my lesson, I never go in expecting anything more than a tossup in Neyland, The Swamp, or Between the Hedges. Historically the games against UT have been tight regardless of which team home team was a dumpster fire. I don't see this game being an exception. Could it be the exception to the rule in this series? Sure. Would I bet on it being the exception and us dominating? No.

We beat them in 2010, 2011, and 2012. 2010 and 2012 were at home and the road game against a very bad (1 conference win) Tennessee team the final score was 14-3.

Yeah, they will play with pride, but as long as we play well, we are still 3 TDs Better then them on their best damn day. The problem with neither team is effort. TN's problem is they are poorly coached, lack a proven QB, and have no confidence. They are in their heads even more than you are.

There is no rule like that. It's BS you made up. You just don't think we'll go up there and kick some ass because we never have before. Well get ready, because it's about to happen. It's on a platter for us. Inferiority complex not needed.

It's not an inferiority complex, I expect the same thing when those teams walk in the Williams Brice. It comes with the territory in the SEC, it's damn difficult to win on the road and it's even more difficult to crush a team on the road.

They're poorly coached for sure, no doubting that. Pure talent, even if it has been underutilized by that coaching staff is still at minimum equal to ours. I think we'll win a tight game because they're not going to roll over but we have the superior coaching staff that will make better adjustments than theirs will. I think we'll win by somewhere between 3-10 points and won't be shocked if we lose. It's not being a pessimist, I'm just not allowing the last game for each team to overly influence my view of the game. The last time we did that was UK after we crushed Mizzou and UK barely beat a very bad team in back to back weeks. People went overboard on thinking we would lose to Arky last week after what had happened due against UK, LaTech, and A&M while I was predicting a win so I'm not a pessimist by any stretch I'm just not foolish enough to predict crushing UT in UT where historically our biggest win against them was by 11 and that was with one of the best teams in our history against another dumpster fire UT team with a poor staff.
