Yikes. Can Vandy really have a better defense than our offense and a better rushing offense than our rushing defense? Somebody get me the schedules!

Um, not much help. We both got disassembled down in Gainesville, but Vandy beat Steve Spurrier worse than we did and Alabama beat us worse than they beat the Commodores. Once again, the Georgia game bucks the trend. Perhaps we didn't have to manufacture negativity all week; maybe we could have just looked at the numbers.

Congrats to MeytonPanning, who wins this week's Hail Mary Haiku with Message to Vandy :

Tennessee's been trending upward, and the 2005 game still looks like an aberration, but who would be shocked if we did indeed relapse to a depressive state after our manic phase last week against Arkansas? I'm still going with the Vols, 20-17, but I feel pretty wobbly about it.

See you here at kickoff!

Go Vols!
