    No wonder our rushing offense was always so bad.

    Seeing DBs in man press is gonna be amazing. Don't care that we'll get toasted at times. I can't stand watching soft corners over and over.

    "The new approach on offense has created a challenge for Swilling on defense. As a press corner, he has to adjust from last season. Previously, he was able to back pedal and see the play unfold in front of him. Now, being a part of the press man-to-man technique he has to dissect the play faster and prevent the receiver from getting into his route."

    I'd also rather see us get toasted occasionaly rather than continuously giving up 6 yards on 3rd and 5 playing 8yd cushions.

    Maybe it's because I live in Knoxville and have watched the Vols parade in 4 coaches since Fulmer was forced out in 2008...all of which were heralded as the great new savior, all of which were met with great excitement, all of which were going to fix the lack of talent left behind by the previous guy. Yeah...it hasn't quite worked out that way for them.

    I am curious as to how much of that is a direct result of the type offense under CPJ and how much is just a result of the change in D scheme / emphasis unde CGC. Certainly, CPJ would have loved a stout D, but he obviously focused on and centered the team around his system. Did we not play press coverage under CPJ due to his O, i.e general gameplan? Or, was it just the type DCs that we hired with their schemes? Honest questions.

    It seems to me that (a) players and recruits will be good with our new schemes because they translate to NFL (helps recruiting) and (b) as a result of running these schemes from top-to-bottom and more similar to what other teams run, it seems our scout teams, etc. ought to be better giving the overall performance a bump. You don't have scout O players learning the 3O on one side and then having to play a totally foreign scheme while getting the D ready.

    Wasn't that part of our bend-then-break defensive philosophy?

    Really good post. Let's embrace the positive changes and not try to constantly compare to the old regime, because that will never go well.

    I never met any Vol fan who was EVER sold on Dooley. Vince Dooley wasn't even that great of a coach, either. His only MNC was due to a freakish athlete at RB.

    And Buck Belue is a bigger dick-rider than Yoko Ono.

    Well, sewak was not the one that, it appears, gave himself a “no fire” contract clause for life.

    MS was much better at the XnOs + theoretical concepts of the 3O than probably anyone. But technique wise, well let’s just say “80/20, 80/20” isn’t a technique.

    Remember that one play in that one game where we didn't gain a single yard? What a failure CPJ's offense is! TBH it seems that you've got Orange Man Bad Syndrome for the guy that did you wrong at GT.

    Your mistake is thinking that it’s personal. It’s not. PJ gave me a great opportunity to advance my life by giving me a scholarship to one of the most prestigious institutions in the world. Go read my statement I put out in the AJC way back when. I answered your facetious response with one of my own.

    You never saw the problems that not meeting as a full unit created so I wouldn’t expect you to understand why it is a problem. You’re a lawyer right? Would you expect a legal team to never meet together as a full unit before going to trial? How ridiculous!

    The last year we had great line play Shaq Mason was basically the O Line coach by proxy. He was handing out assignments in the huddle.
