| SEC Rant|| Board Degenerates: Quick Question regarding Tennessee and Missouri - Tennessee Jed on 11/20/14 at 3:59 pm|
If 75% of the money is coming in on Missouri, but the line is staying at TN -3, what does that mean?...
| SEC Rant|| Tennessee will be starting 9 true freshman this Saturday. - Tennessee Jed on 11/20/14 at 7:53 am|
Updwards of 23 will play a role in the game. It blows my mind that our fans are so confident. There is a lot of youth out there, and that lack of experience is extremely difficult to overcome. Especially, when playing a team that's coached as well as Missouri.
RB - Jalen Hurd
OG - Jashon Robert...

Gary Pinkel is the best in the league, bar none. What he does with Mizzou's "perceived" talent is nothing short of spectacular. Based on Rivals Rankings, Missouri's offensive/defensive 2 deep includes....

What can the board tell me about this future Vol? Haven't really heard much about him before today, but it appears the Crystals Balls are rolling in for UT.
| SEC Rant|| quick note on TN's revamped offense - Tennessee Jed on 11/18/14 at 11:23 am|
Prior to Josh Dobbs taking the helm late in the first quarter against Alabama, the Tennessee defense had given up 31 sacks on the year. Since then, the Vols have given up 2, 1 to Alabama and 1 to Kentucky.
Mizzou has an elite pass rush, so that's obviously something to watch out for...
| SEC Rant|| I want to applaud Mizzou and what they've been able to accomplish in the SEC - Tennessee Jed on 11/16/14 at 4:16 pm|
Just a fantastic program, and a pleasant surprise. Nice addition to the league.

| SEC Rant|| Myles Garrett vs Derek Barnett: behind the #s - Tennessee Jed on 11/6/14 at 10:59 am|
Garrett leads all-SEC freshman in sacks with 11, Derek Barnett is in 2nd with 7. Currently, Barnett does have more TFLs than Garrett.
Myles has already passed Clowney's record, and Barnett will tie it if he manages one more.
However looking past the #s.
8 of Garrett's 11 came against Ric...
| SEC Rant|| NFL.com Scout's Take: Josh Dobbs an Emerging Superstar - Tennessee Jed on 11/3/14 at 4:24 pm|
Obviously, they haven't annointed him after 2 games, but he's now on every GM's radar.
Incredibly intelligent, high character guy with an arm and wheels. ...
| SEC Rant|| Looking ahead to your 2015 TN Vols - Tennessee Jed on 11/3/14 at 10:53 am|
Honestly, I hate to do this so early, because this season isn't over. We have 2 toss ups, and a gimme left, and 7-5 isn't out of the question. Obviously, that's not where we want to be long term, but it is tangible progress.
Not counting Justin Worley, the TN Vols will return 39 of th...

| SEC Rant|| TN's most talented player, and the true freshman no one is talking about. - Tennessee Jed on 10/30/14 at 11:44 am|
Nashville's own, Derek Barnett
He hasn't been given any weekly awards and he wasn't mentioned on ESPN's mid-season All-SEC Freshman Team, however, he ranks second in the conference in TFLs and sixth in the league in sacks recorded.
In fact, through 8 games this season, he's had more TFLs, sa...

I have a sneaking suspicion this might be their, and Anthony Davis', coming out party. In fact, I'm expecting them to finish anywhere between 5 and 8 this year. Definitely an underrated team heading into the season.
I'm ready for some basketball....

| SEC Rant|| How are your freshman *****s doing so far this season. - Tennessee Jed on 9/26/14 at 3:20 pm|
Jalen Hurd certainly appears to be legit. He did extremely well against a stout OU defense, running behind a woefully deficient offensive line.
Josh Malone looks the part, but he hasn't broken out yet.
It seems that he's going to get the nod this weekend with von Pearson and Josh Smith both...
| SEC Recruiting|| Darrell Taylor - ATH/DE - Hopewell, VA - Composite **** - Tennessee Jed on 9/26/14 at 9:43 am|
He's announcing tomorrow, and up until late last night he was thought of as a VA Tech lock. Rumours are swirling that he might shock the masses and pick TN.
Upon hearing the news, Va Tech is purportedly sending coaches to his ...

State has been severely underrated this season, and honestly last night was a text book example displaying the absurdity of pre season rankings. Stacked on the line of scrimmage, a playmaker at QB, and lead by a man who can coach with the best of them, it won't be the last time they play spoiler i...
