UT vs Alabama Preview

by | Oct 23, 2020 | Reporting | 0 comments

It’s no secret that the game this past Saturday against Kentucky was a major letdown. Many across the country thought the Vols would beat Kentucky, some thought it would come in a more convincing fashion, but that simply didn’t happen. It’s difficult to overcome 3 turnovers, 2 of those turnovers resulting in Kentucky touchdowns via pick sixes. Overall, the team looked sluggish. It seemed as if there was a lack of interest from the entire team, like only a few guys truly wanted to be out there. 

This week’s task is much more daunting. Besides the fact this is the biggest game on the schedule every year, Alabama boasts one of the best offenses in the country. Don’t believe me, just ask Coach Pruitt. Pruitt was quoted saying, “This is the best Alabama offense I’ve ever seen.” Alabama is traditionally known for having a defense that can stop anyone and an offense that can control the pace of the game because of the studs they have in the backfield. This Alabama offense is different. While Najee Harris is one of the best backs in the country, they also possess one of the best receiving corps in the nation. It’s easy to see that the Vols will have their hands full this week. 

If there’s one thing we can expect this weekend it’s this: the Vols will come out fired up. Pruitt stated earlier this week that they’ve had some of the best practices they’ve had all year.. I don’t believe we’ll see the same sluggish team we saw against Kentucky. I believe coach will have the guys ready to run through a brick wall, and they’ll need to be ready to do just that. If the Vols can take care of the ball, limit the big plays on defense and run the ball effectively, then who knows what could happen. After last year’s Alabama game and seeing how up until the goal line fumble we were right in the game, I expect the players and coaches to be ready to roll against the Tide.
