    What I liked best of all was Johnson's declaration QB is the deepest position on the team. Talk about a game changer at last.

    We are so dependent upon precise reads and blocking the right guy that it seems to take a couple of weeks to get the timing down. Maybe there is some truth to that old adage: "When the leaves are turning, the option starts churning." The footwork and choreography between the quarterback, Bback, and Abacks are so intricate, hell they might as well be on "Dancing with the Stars." My wife loves that show.

    All the more reason it is important to have the power running game element ready to go. With our OL and (maybe) MJ and DM, we may not have to depend entirely on precision. Hopefully we can blow some people off the line and count on 4pyc.

    Ya, the zone / belly / trap / midline is less complex. My 8th grade team ran it as purely check-with-me. Would have been pretty unstoppable with MJ and Mills.

    With a great OL and BBs, all we need is JN 2.0. Ground and pound. Very boring and disheartening for non-GT fans. But will usually result in more points than the other team.

    Ask UGAg about the wisdom of passing when the running game is working. Actually, don't waste your time.

    The thing that bothers me, like others said, we start slow. BC game?? And UT has a ton of talent.

    And coming off of an awful season, with the new meshing of a B back and new guys on the OL.

    The biggest thing I learned from watching this video is the Vols can't cut block worth a damn!

    Seems like Jordan Woods isn't on the roster anymore on RW.com. Any news?
