This Week's Roundtable is hosted by:
Buy Imitrex Without Prescription, In the interest of full disclosure, HSH sent me his responses to this week’s questions earlier in the week. In theory, I was then supposed assemble a post including my answers along with his. In theory, this sounds simple … in theory. Reality is quite a different matter. I have been woefully unreliable in terms of my posting of late due to my “real life,” and more specifically, my “real job.”
Thus, as a result of me being completely backed-up in preparation for an upcoming trial (a/k/a “evidence manipulation conference”) I am yet again forced to punt—at least for the moment. This is particularly annoying considering how great the questions are this week. Thus, for now the only answers I have to offer are those from HSH—which is probably a good thing considering that he actually knows what he’s talking about. I will try to add in my responses later, if possible. Until then, however, here are HSH’s thoughts for the week:
1) Which newcomer do you expect to play the most total snaps for the Vols this fall?
HSH: Well, by the looks of things, we know for sure it won't be Bryce Brown, though he may be the best talent of the freshmen.
Though I have trouble remembering him actually being a freshman, it almost has to be Montori Hughes at defensive tackle, simply because of the lack of depth at defensive tackle and the sore, wobbly knees of senior end-turned-tackle Wes Brown. With Brown's knees, its almost more a question of when as opposed to if they're going to take him out of action. I have to take this moment to say his never-quit attitude and what he's been saying about his situation has him rapidly climbing up my favorite 2009 Vols.
Back to Hughes, I said he doesn't seem like a freshman because of three things: first, he's obviously from the 2008 class out of Siegel High School in middle Tennessee, but didn't qualify. Secondly, he enrolled in January, so he was in for the spring, so it's like he's been at UT for longer than the other freshman. Finally, it's because he's a very large man. Either way, it's clear he's moved up to the third tackle spot, behind Williams and Brown and ahead of Victor Thomas, Rae Sykes and Marlon Walls.
But given the situation at defensive tackle behind Big Dan Williams, Hughes has to be the freshman who will see the most action.
As for the "true" freshman with the most impact, I'll say receiver Marsalis Teague. I went to last Thursday's practice and last Saturday's scrimmage, and Teague had some impressive plays. I think Gerald Jones and Brandon Warren will be the top 2 wideouts, but Teague is my third (and Quintin Hancock fourth), given the injury to Denarius Moore. Also, Teague seems like more a pure receiver than Nu'Keese Richardson in my opinion.
Lawvol: (Long thoughtful pause followed by a longer, yet less thoughtful, sucking sound…)
2) Assuming we all believe Gerald Jones is going to lead the team in receptions again this season, who will finish second?
HSH: I somewhat addressed Tennessee's receivers in the previous question, and I'll go with who I said was the second receiver there: Brandon Warren. As I said, from last Thursday and last Saturday, my reaction to see #1 running routes and catching passes was one of amazement. In other words, I was surprised how he was a "tight end" last year and how he caught maybe 10 passes last year. He easily passes the eye test as a wide receiver.
One final thought: Jones led UT with 30 catches last year and Lucas Taylor led the Vols in yards. Taylor caught 26 passes. Who was third? Arian Foster with 19. Josh Briscoe and Austin Rogers were the next wide receivers, with both catching 14. All that is to say again how ineffective the quarterbacks were last year. Hopefully the second and third leading receivers this year have more catches—which you think has to happen, right?
Lawvol: Objection! Leading, calls for speculation, and assumes facts not in evidence… (sorry, it's just a habit)
3) If Tim Tebow and Eric Berry are the two best players in the SEC, who's third?
HSH: Give me Brandon Spikes, Florida's middle linebacker, who turned down a boatload of money from an NFL team to stay and try to win another national championship (vomit).
I've seen Terrance Cody and Rolando McClain, but I'll take Spikes, the leader and best player on the league's top defense. Oh, and also this amusing celebration of a pick-six against LSU last year, and his best Eric Berry impression.
Honorable mention: Ole Miss QB Jevan Snead, Cody and McClain on the Alabama defense, Georgia LB Rennie Curran (SEC's leading returner tackler), running back Charles Scott from LSU, the other 11 players on Florida's defense and a trio of wide receivers: Julio Jones (Alabama), A.J. Green (UGA) and Brandon LaFell (LSU).
Lawvol: (Note the theme song to "the Smurfs" playing in the background…)
4) Generally speaking, which opposing SEC fanbase is your favorite to interact with, Imitrex trusted pharmacy reviews. No prescription Imitrex online, And which is your least favorite?
HSH: I'll start with the least favorite, and that's Georgia. I went to Athens for the 51-33 beatdown as a college freshman in 2006 and I got treated worse there than I did in trips to more vaunted venues in Gainesville (2007) and Tuscaloosa (2005 and 2007).
I got incessantly and constantly barked at, generic Imitrex, Imitrex use, which is fine but extremely annoying. But even more so, my friends and I got cursed at because we had orange on. They had no respect for me. I had sorority girls looking great in red and black dresses dropping the F-bomb at me completely unprovoked. The typical, Imitrex coupon, Buy no prescription Imitrex online, expected stuff—"Tennessee sucks," "Fulmer sucks, Imitrex natural, Imitrex for sale, " "nothing sucks like a Big Orange," the Gator Chomp, where can i buy Imitrex online, Imitrex pharmacy, Roll Tide, War Eagle, online buying Imitrex, Imitrex from canadian pharmacy, Pig Sooie, etc., herbal Imitrex, Buy Imitrex without prescription, etc.—doesn't bother me a bit. But profanity?
I'm not saying I can't handle it, but c'mon. If I'm doing some chatting too, buy Imitrex without a prescription, Real brand Imitrex online, that's one thing. I don't get belligerent at visitors in Knoxville unless they provoke me—and even then, I'm not yelling at them to “eff” their school or “eff” themselves. Some common courtesy would be nice.
Though I have a higher disdain for Florida and Alabama because they're our biggest rivals, Imitrex duration, Buy Imitrex online cod, Georgia will always be #3 on that list because of that trip to Athens.
As for the favorite, I would have to say Auburn, Imitrex maximum dosage, Imitrex class, because as I've said repeatedly I have friends there and I can't find any reason to really dislike them. I haven't been to Baton Rouge (or Columbia or Fayetteville - been everywhere else), but I haven't had any issues with LSU fans when they've come to Knoxville and Atlanta.
But overall, online Imitrex without a prescription, Purchase Imitrex online, I don't know if I have a "favorite"—it's more of a feeling of indifference than a preference one way or another.
Lawvol: This one I can actually answer, well, where to buy Imitrex, Purchase Imitrex for sale, sort of. I have pretty much addressed this in the past on more than one occasion. I was probably clearest in my article “The State of Hate: Football Rivalries at Tennessee,” which continues to be true for me today.

The 2009 Orange and White game has come and gone and now we have a little bit of an idea of what we should expect from the Tennessee Volunteers this fall. It was less than exciting—as most scrimmages are—but showed a brief glimpse of the 2009 Vols and what is on the horizon for Tennessee fans and haters alike.
Cephalexin For Sale, On the whole, it looked pretty good…
I was unable to attend the game in person, but got a chance to catch some of the replay on SportSouth last night. If you missed it, GVX now has a play-by-lay recap posted (HT: RTT). On the whole there were some nice things shown, as well as some areas that need a little improvement.
Here are my thoughts in semi-stream of consciousness mode:
First, the running game looks strong. Montario Hardesty, Toney Williams, and Taurean Poole all looked solid running behind the offensive line. The run game was quick and crisp and seemed to have far more of a “north-south” orientation than it has in years past. The addition of incoming freshmen Bryce Brown and David Oku this fall should only improve this squad. Runningbacks coach Eddie Gran will have a very deep pool of talent with which to work, which is nice for a change. At this point, it seems likely that Tennessee’s primary offensive attack will come on the ground. After the 2008 campaign, I’m just glad that there is a primary offensive attack.
Second, the secondary—led by All-world Eric Berry at safety—appeared ready to be Tennessee’s lead squad of playmakers. While I realize that this was little more than a spring scrimmage, it seems possible that the Vols secondary this fall could be one of the best ever to wear the orange. That said, it seemed that the backs were playing a little soft either due to the scrimmage environment or due to their being in the process of learning the Full Monte’s new system.
Third, the offensive line looked good at run blocking, but less so when it came time for the pass. It would be nice to see improvement on pass blocking since our quarterback play is “average” at best at the moment. The offensive line must find ways to give the quarterbacks a little time to throw, lest the Vols become a one-directional run-only offense. Still, on the whole, it appears that there is the making of a strong unit.
Fourth, the defensive line—especially when paired with the strength of the secondary—looks tough. This line has clearly bought-in to a more aggressive style of play. This is refreshing, and could be extremely impressive if the linemen continue to work on making smart decisions when it comes to attacking. Still, at this point the d-line—especially Chris Walker and Montori Hughes—looks solid.
Fifth, the receiving corps, seemed more than capable to get open, make the catch, and add yards after the fact. Gerald Jones and Quintin Hancock looked particularly solid. The addition of Denarius Moore and Brandon Warren as third and fourth options further bolster this group. At this early point, Jones appears to be the top receiver, but fortunately there is more than one target.
Sixth, the quarterbacks continue to look fairly erratic. This does not really surprise me (or anyone else for that matter, I imagine) after the disastrous quarterback play seen in 2008. It appears that Jonathan Crompton is the likely starter, but that might change considering that Nick Stephens was plagued by wrist problems throughout the spring. The addition of 23 year-old quarterback Mike Rozier, who has been playing pitcher in the Boston Red Sox for the past several years, might change that dynamic a bit, but considering he will be coming in green (with four years of eligibility), it seems unlikely that he will immediately rocket to the top. Stranger things, however, have happened. One way or the other, it seems apparent that the pass game will be as simple and as error-free as possible. “Keep it simple, keep it clean” seems to be the mantra. If the quarterbacks can accomplish this, then they might just do okay.
Finally, the special teams, are a bit of a question in my mind. Punter Chad Cunningham was more than capable, but kicker Daniel Lincoln continued his slide by missing a makeable field goal. This team is likely to need field goals a fair amount this fall, thus this is quite concerning. Hopefully, Lincoln will find his range from 2007 again and return to form. If not, his inconsistency could spell trouble for the Vols in tight games.
In the end, this team is a work in progress. They are unlikely to be world-beaters this fall, but do appear to be in position to lay a solid foundation on which to build for the future. Furthermore, as they become more and more familiar with Lane Kiffin’s new system things should become more automatic and more graceful. More importantly, both the players and the coaches looked as if they were actually enjoying themselves. As an outsider, it seemed that the team as a whole likes the course that the “Kiffin Chimera” has set.
On the whole, I am encouraged by what I saw and how the Vols performed. Will this team win the SEC East in 2009? Not likely, but possible. Will they finish at the bottom? Doubtful. The real question is how they will do in tight games. If they fold, then the Vols can expect at least three or four losses. If they rise to the occasion … well … they might just surprise a few people.
Either way, I am already looking forward to the 5 September kickoff…
