It's finally starting to really feel like fall, maybe even winter, you're any Cincy. That means another football Saturday for our beloved volunteers and another chance to get even with those newest SECTigers. No, not the ones from LSU or Auburn, the ones from Missouri. In case you hadn't noticed, Missouri is three and one against Tennessee, including two and oh and Knoxville. If that doesn't make you want to toss your pumpkin cookies, I don't know what will. Today is also the day that we find out whether the I GYV is still intact. (For those of you not familiar with the TonyBasilio show, the I GYV essentially means that the volunteers will make the SEC championship game no matter what or how fluky the circumstances.) If LSU, who is favored by two touchdowns, manages to beat the gators, who are suffering from a rash of injuries themselves, and Tennessee gets closer to leveling the series with Missouri, only hated, instead, little brother rival Vandy will stand in the way of the large orange reaching Atlanta.

The one problem with this scenario is that the Columbia tigers are much improved from last year, especially on the offense of side of the ball. Sophomore QB Drew Loc leads the SEC in both passing yards and touchdowns passes. The running game isn't shabby either, averaging almost 225 yards per game. Despite this, Missouri has the only man is day three and seven record today, although they did pull off an upset last week. What does all this mean for Tennessee? It means that Joshua Dobbs in the Tennessee offense will likely have to score well over 40 points (due to the fact that the Tennessee defense is struggling of late) if the volunteers are to meet Las Vegas his expectations of a 17 point spread. While hopeful, I am not expecting a 17 point or greater victory today.

Nevertheless, expect Joshua Dobbs to go out on senior day and style. Look for the senior captain, who is largely responsible for the resurrection of our ones proud program, to amass 253 passing yards on 25 of 32 attempts with three TDs. They expect him to tack on an additional 194 yards on the ground on 16 carries, Including two long runs of 60+ yards each and two TDs. I would say that five total TDs and nearly 450 yards of total offense on senior day is a way Josh would like to end his home Tennessee career.

expect Alvin Camara, who will very likely be playing in his last game in Kneeland Stadium, to dazzle as well, with 15 carries for 175 yards and two TDs. Look for John Kelly @ to add an additional 90 yards on 14 carries.

Expect Josh Malone, who is contemplating a move to the pros himself, thanks in part to his semi break out performance this season, to score a one TD to go with 97 yards on eight catches.look for Juwan Jennings to catch one 17 yard TD. Look for Tyler bird to again get two passes for a total of 38 yards, with one catch of 27 yards. Look for Ethan wolf to continue his light sees an uptick, with three catches for 48 yards and one TD. Expect running back's Alvin and John to combine 457 yards receiving on six catches.

Expect the volunteer defensive ends to harass Missouri QB Drew lock in the Second half, upsetting the typically stout although young Tiger offense of line, who is best in the conference in tackles for loss allowed. Look for that to be the impetus that takes a close game and turns it in favor of the men in orange. Expect the defense to struggle on the day as a whole, however, leading to what will look like an old big 12 shoot out on the scoreboard. Look for Kim Sutton to go out in style as well, with a late game interception that seals the deal for the home team. Expect Derek Barnett, who Will be playing on Sundays next year, to get 1.5 sacks on the day. Expect Bob shoot to finally see the light and play freshman safety Nigel warrior and a game that actually matters, and expect him to wreak have it in the secondary with hey forced fumble and some late game here Roeck's in the form of plugging a leaky Tennessee run defense.

Expect Butch Jones to finally see the light as well, playing Markwest Callaway on punt and kick off return teams. Expect Callaway to dazzle on at least one pot return at 25+ yards. And expect me to explode if Callaway and or bird (preferably both) don't see significant time on return teams today with their hands on the football.

Expect Aaron medley to make his only field goal attempt of the day from 42 yards.

And expect the final score of…

Missouri 41, Tennessee 52

Sure, the walls won't cover the spread, but after him and LSU beat down of the Florida gators, The volunteers will be in control of their destiny and halfway to Atlanta. Welcome holiday season, and go volunteers!
