Vanderbilt Game Preview
Posted: Wednesday, November 25th, 2015, 8:00 PM

Missouri was a nice win. It's obvious that the coaches are just trying to do the bare minimum to win games and keep everyone healthy. I can understand that I guess. That said, I think it would be nice to see Tennessee try to hammer Vandy but I doubt that happens.

This will be a shorter version of the blog. There is a lot going on this week with Thanksgiving and all so my time is a bit limited right now.

Vandy is very similar to Missouri. Great defense and terrible offense. Vandy was able to beat Missouri earlier in the season so perhaps they are a bit more imposing. It is also important to consider that the game will be played on a terrible field. I am all for going to field turf by the way. It just looks real nice to me and there will be no more worring about the field tackling someone.

I think this game will play out much like the Missouri game did. Tennessee will basically control the game on the ground and be conservative and play smart defense. I don't think they will take many chances on their way to their 8th win.

If Tennessee wins Saturday, this season will be the best since 2007. It really feels like it could have been so much more. A lot of fans will consider this a success but to me it was a pretty disappointing season. Not because we will have won 8 games but because we should have won 10 at least. This season made it abundantly clear that we are stuck with a coach that probably won't outcoach anyone. He has to rely on out talenting teams and being very conservative. The shame of that is that we will never beat enough elite teams to win a championship so essentially all of this talent will probably be squandered. I would be happy to be wrong but next year, all things considered, 9-3 is probably realistic because Butch will blow too many games by being conservative. All and all this is a decent season. Definitely not great and I don't think anyone should really be satisfied with this. In the big picture, this season is the bare minimum of what should be considered decent at Tennessee.
