5 things to know about the Vols today

Streeter Lecka

Hey, it's Jadeveon Clowney. But it's not just Clowney, it's his clan. And Connor Shaw, who's earned rare praise from Steve Spurrier, hater of quarterbacks. This and more in today's Talking Points.

  1. Yes, Tiny Richardson is looking forward to matching up against Jadeveon Clowney again this year and avenging the one play during which Clowney got the best of him last year.
  2. But the coaching staff and the rest of the o-line is harping on the fact that the Gamecocks' entire defensive line is pretty darn good.
  3. Speaking of pretty darn good, QB Connor Shaw qualifies even though he's a bit under the radar. He's even earned praise from Steve Spurrier, who said Shaw's play against Arkansas was "exceptional." Yes, Spurrier actually said that about one of his quarterbacks.
  4. Marlin Lane is expected to return Saturday. Curt Maggitt is indeed expected to redshirt. Devrin Young is back at practice, but he's in a green jersey, and JaRon Toney and Malik Foreman are listed as the kick returnersthis week.
  5. If you missed it, our statsy preview calculator spit out a 35-28 win for the Gamecocks.
