Tennessee-Martin Game Preview

I'm back after a brief vacation from blogging. Now that football season is starting I plan to have weekly game previews and weekly game analysis. During Tennessee's bye week after the Georgia game I will feature the biggest national game. Which game that will be is yet to be determinied as how the season plays out will dictate which game is chosen. Okay, on to Tennessee football.

We all know that Tennessee-Martin has very little chance of beating the Volunteers, even with the Vols in rebuilding mode. I realize this will likely be my most anti-climatic preview but I have committed to doing it for every game so here we go. In researching Tennessee-Martin a little, it is apparent that they are very undersized up front. Both lines are much bigger for Tennessee. This will be a good game for both of Tennessee's young lines to gain experience and confidence. Dooley doesn't strike me as the type of coach to run the score up so don't expect 70 points. I think Tennessee will be pretty vanilla and mostly run the ball while throwing a good amount to get Simms some quality work. On defense I expect Tennessee to play a lot of young players and start the long process of building depth early in the game. It will be interesting to see how Wilcox deals with situations like 3rd and long, 2nd and short, 3rd and short, and so on. It will be interesting to see if Palardy can regularly kickoff into the endzone. It will be interesting to see if our special teams has improved at all.

I look for Tauren Poole to have at least 150 yards and Oku could be close to 100 yards. I expect Simms to throw for around 200 yards with Stocker being a big target. I don't expect to see many shots down field, as Dooley won't want to show too much of his hand to Oregon. I expect a few interceptions by our more athletic secondary. I expect our front 4 to get a lot of pressure on that undersized UT-Martin offensive line.

At the end of the day the Vols will roll, giving up a late touchdown to defensive reserves.
