Kiper: Berry upstaged by Moore


It's an ESPN Insider snippet from Mel Kiper, but the headline pretty much says everything.  Kiper says that Eric Berry was upstaged by UCLA's Rahim Moore this past weekend - because Moore had 2 interceptions.  It's not too hard to look like a star DB when the other team's recievers run "lazy" routes, and the quarterback is Jonathan Crompton.

Berry finished the game with a team-high 10 tackles, 1 for a loss, and 1 QB hurry.  Moore had 6 tackles and 2 picks.  The diference in stats is really an indication of different positions they play.  Berry is a Strong Safety and Moore is a Free Safety.  Berry played close to the line of scrimmage for most of the game - highlighting Tennessee's emphasis on stopping the run - while Moore was dropping back into coverage.

As for this week, Crompton has officially been named the starter.  Which will likely be the last time, says Todd McShay.

Personally, I have come up with a game plan that should keep things close.  On offense, we hand the ball off literally every play, don't turn it over, and get some good punts.  On defense, we do this: Eric Berry
