That ingredients of that play sure look familiar.  With the pulling lineman and tight end, the runner's strong cut in the backfield, and the runner's break away open field speed that clip looks very similar to the national championship.

Has Tennessee ever had a nationally relevant running back?  Quarterback sure, but I don't remember a good running back.

I thought it was really good but I have liked enough movies that other people hate to realize that my tastes do not always match popular opinion regarding movies.

We asked the same question about Devin Smith around this time and that worked out well so I'm not going to doubt Corey Smith or Zach Smith.

I'm not at all worried about our offensive tackles in the future. We have Prince, Feder, Schmidt, and Myers already and will get a quality tackle somewhere this year too.  We always steal kids out of state from under the noses of other programs, eventually it is bound to happen to us but there is no reason to be upset about it when you your program won't by changed by the absence of the individuals who go elsewhere.

He looks ready to contribute as a 2015 incoming freshman. It's crazy that he is 2016 and still has another year of high school ball left. Speaking of which, I feel so very sorry for the quarterbacks that play his team this year.

I noticed Conor when the team was just scrimmaging durin warm ups. He just seems to have a good understanding of where to be. I'd put him second on the depth chart at middle linebacker and give him plenty of time in blow outs. 

Im really excited about the whole defense this year.  Being dominant on defense is what separates us from pretenders like Baylor.  Our starters are already good and we seem to be developing very impressive depth across the whole defense.

I really doubt Saban wants another transfer quarterback after Cocker worked out so poorly.

I really hope they leave Cardale in for a long time today. He's non contact, and he needs lots of reps to have as many as Barrett or Miller overall. Also selfishly I'm not very excited to watch walk on quarterbacks. If they are going to take Cardale out, it is a shame that one of Burrows or Gibson isn't enrolled to make their introduction.

I have a very strong feeling that punt and kick return will be improved this year. We had to worry about who would start and get new players ready to go on both sides of the ball last year and I think that took priority over special teams in fall camp. This year we have a lot fewer questions on offense and defense so I think Meyer will devote more time to developing a nasty return game. With Samuel playing a lot of H, and Marshall probably playing both H and wide, I think Wilson should be the punt and kick off return man. He hasn't broken through yet but Wilson has speed and moves. The H is so stacked that he may fall behind Samuel to be third on the depth chart. The return game should be a good way to get the ball in his hands without taking snaps from Marshall or Samuel.

I hope he gets an offer. The thing about recruits his age is you have no idea if he will shoot up four inches late or never grow another millimeter. His speed is good enough that I personally don't mind the height but I'm not on the coaching staff so who knows.

I could see them replacing the chrome helmet uniforms as our alternative jerseys. I think there is some chrome fatigue because we don't seem to play well while wearing them (Illinois being an exception but they are Illinois so they don't matter). 

Personally I don't care whether the sleeves have gray or not, but I like how the stripes on the sleeves are large and fill the whole sleeve. It makes them more striking. 

In the end this probably comes down to what Nike wants.
