    Andy might have also included a #6. In 1956, Tenn likely prevented Tech from at least battling for its 5th (at that time) NC, when they handed the Jackets a 0-6 loss in Atlanta, Tech's only loss for the season. That single game was considered for a long time the greatest college football game ever played.

    I agree. All four teams playing in MB were invited to tour/practice prior to their respective game.

    Hi. BTW. Yeah, does this seriously give GT an advantage? If so, I really want someone to explain this to me.

    Lyle needs some cheese to go with all that whine.

    It does make you ponder if Alabama has an advantage practicing at Bryant - Denny before their home game with UT.

    It gives us an advantage because CPJ actually used those two hours to practice whereas Lyle would use his two hours touring the stadium and thinking of new excuses.

    He's probably talking about getting comfortable with the field, having the right spikes can be huge.

    Yes. It's always advantageous to actually practice on the field you will play on, especially if it's a brand new field. JJ Green spoke of having to track punts and kick-offs more carefully, as apparently they can get lost in the video board. And while all four teams were invited to practice there, we do have the advantage of being the only team able to bus the players 30 minutes down the road to the stadium.

    That being said, I am always in favor of taking every advantage I can legally get. :D

    Colton Jumper will be a good linebacker for Tennessee but he's nowhere near as good as Darren Kirkland Jr who he will be replacing.

    CPJ needs to run the ball straight up the middle to test the Tennessee defense which may not be improved from 2016.

    Have they traveled to Atlanta yet? There is some ancient curse in Knoxville that destroys knees.

    Tennessee has been cursed with injuries the last few seasons. Whether that has anything to do with Butch Jones who knows It's been said before that CBJ is a stern taskmaster. If Butch wins less than 7 games in 2017 he's probably out of a job.
