As we said during the week, there was no way this group was going to beat Alabama. The Vols had to hope that the Tide would beat themselves, and it simply didn’t happen. The passing game is still very much a work in progress, but at this point that seems like a minor quibble.
Next week will be the toughest test to date, but if this team continues to play at this level it’s hard to see anyone on the schedule coming within two scores.
Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em and enjoy your evening. Ten in a row feels mighty fine.
