Vols' resiliency has, will be tested
Hearing and seeing oftentimes don't merge on Tennessee's football highway. Yet something different happened Saturday night under the lights of Neyland Stadium, when it seemed Alabama was about to boat-race the Vols right into the Tennessee River.
They showed hope. They showed genuine reasons to think November might not be all pain. Hell, even Jones showed his resiliency post-game, and he had to: Alabama's marching band was filing out of Neyland Stadium, blaring their horns in jubilation on the heels of the Tide's 34-20 win as Jones began his press conference.....more
Dobbs makes most of chance
Tennessee lost it's fourth SEC game of 2014, falling 34-20 to Alabama but the Vols may have found a quarterback to spark what's been a sputtering offense. At least that's what many people will take away from tonight after Josh Dobbs came off the bench to lead three straight scoring drives at one point and pump some life into Neyland Stadium.
Stats, execution show growing pains and growth
The stat line reads as follows: 17 points, 227 yards and no sacks on 36 plays in three drives. It was 36 yards more than Tennessee had last week at Ole Miss. It was 6 yards less that the Vols had three weeks ago in a loss to Florida.
Don't misunderstand, it's still a loss.
Dobbs sparks Vols' ground game
The result certainly wasn't what Tennessee head coach Butch Jones and his team wanted when the final whistle blew Saturday night as Alabama defeated the Vols, 34-20, but the Vols showed life on the ground in the defeat spearheaded by quarterback Josh Dobbs' big day on the ground.
Jones questions 'late substitution' on 'Bama TD
Amari Cooper came across the formation, took in the pass in the flats from a bootlegging Blake Sims, got a couple blocks and went 80 yards up the west sideline for a touchdown on No. 4 Alabama's first play from scrimmage in Saturday night's 34-20 win over Tennessee at Neyland Stadium.
It was the first of 20 first-quarter points for Crimson Tide and the first of 185 receiving yards for Cooper in the opening 10 minutes, five seconds of game time.
But Tennessee coach Butch Jones said it never should've been allowed to happen.
