Vols trail Georgia Tech at halftime

Vols trail Georgia Tech at halftime

That decision to go for two might come back to haunt him if the season goes off the rails. After about the third drive, their triple option attack set in and took advantage of a winded Vols defense.

After a shaky first half in his first career start, Dormady was able to settle in and make big throws when needed.

Tennessee is one of six SEC teams in the coaches poll, joining No.1 Alabama, No. 12 LSU, No. 13 Auburn, No. 15 Georgia and No. 24 Florida. Quarterback Quinten Dormady could be a bit more accurate on his passes at times.

"As much as Marquez Callaway sparked us, John Kelly sparked us", Jones said. "He played with passion and played with energy".

Winning more than eight or nine games requires more than intangibles.

Johnson said the schedule will definitely affect how he approaches practice this week, particularly for an offense that was on the field for 96 total plays and rolled up 655 total yards. "He's very physical, and again, I thought he did some good things in the back end of tackling and running to the football. He's resilient and I expect him to have a big year".

It was not all bad: John Kelly looked fantastic, and Butch Jones allowed his offensive coordinator-now Larry Scott-to call a fade route in the endzone. The guy with the two black lines coming out of his body in the diagram up above, Tennessee linebacker Cortez McDowell, was unblocked, but the play's created to make him choose which of two potential ball carriers to stop. Three of them were in orange, and four were in white. Sure, defending the triple option is hard, but the best times to face it are during bowl games and the first game of the season - when you have plenty of time to prepare. Given new life, Tennessee drove 70 yards for a quick touchdown, and it was suddenly a one-touchdown game, a swing of 10 points.

Overtime was only possible because Tennessee scored 14 unanswered points in the fourth quarter and then blocked Shawn Davis' field-goal attempt at the end of regulation. That was his fourth on the day.

Open title without dropping a set in the Open era. "I am pretty satisfied", said Thiem , who is looking to reach the U.S. It's a very special tournament to me. "And then when I saw all this crowd cheering for me, my energies went up".

Notably, Nadal and Daniel have never met in the past and the Spaniard starts as the overwhelming favourite in their first meeting. So many characters and back stories and accomplished athletes still are in the mix. "So I can play calm from the background".


Kohli, Rohit flay Sri Lanka
MS Dhoni , prowling like a hawk behind the stumps, urged skipper Kohli to review, a decision that reaped good result. Angry fans lobbed bottles and other objects after Sri Lanka lost the third game in Pallekele to India on Sunday.


Tennessee had defended 86 Georgia Tech runs on the night, the vast majority of them poorly.

He and the Yellowjackets did not get it.

After Tennessee (1-0) found pay dirt to pull within 21-14, Georgia Tech (0-1) again traversed the length of the field, moving 75 yards in a brief - for them - two minutes and 34 seconds, as a 6-yard Marshall run gave the Jackets a 28-14 lead with 13:08 remaining in the game.

Coach Butch Jones said he would discuss Jennings's status later in the week, but Jennings reportedly is having surgery Tuesday.

Now that we know this fact, we'll just have to deal with the aerial dunk fests that are to ensue when the Volunteers force a turnover. In the limited amount of passing the Jackets did, the Volunteer secondary looked woeful. "We had way too many negative yardage plays, too many third-and-longs and too many dropped passes".

He struck a wait-and-see tone with the defense and had concerns about the kicking game.

ABOUT TENNESSEE (2016: 9-4): The Volunteers look to replace most of their offensive firepower from last season, but return running back John Kelly (630 yards rushing in 2016) and receiver Jauan Jennings (seven receiving touchdowns). Kelly disappeared from the game plan for prolonged periods of time.

As good as Kelly was, he wouldn't have had almost the same degree of success if it weren't for the incredible debut of offensive guard Smith.
