Justin: Do you believe Tennessee’s offense?
Daron: NoÂ I don’t
Justin: yeah. I saw the first quarter of that game.Â And the offense was still utterly incompetent. Comical bad.Â But! I will say this: they have a huge line and Montario Hardesty seems to be an animal
Daron:Â Well, we’ve always known that.Â He terrified me far more than Arian foster in previous years mostly because he lacked Foster’s talent for timely (or untimely, if you’re a UT fan) giveaways.
Justin: yeah he’s like Foster, without the penchant for the goalline jitters
Daron: or the “big moment” jitters.Â Foster was lights out on fourth and short when it came to fumbling. God, I’ll miss him
Justin: The man made it his job to fuck up their drives
Daron: and did it with gusto! and consistency! no higher praise is there.
Justin: True story
Justin: This game is gonna be fuckin’ hideous
Daron: UCLA struggled with SDSU,Â Â falling behind 14-3.
Justin: indeed,Â Â Prince had 179 yards 1 td, 2 picks. But most importantly, got out of the game with his knees in tact! A moral victory for UCLA QBs!
Daron: That’s an actual victory.
Justin: UCLA did roll up 150 yards on the ground, Which is quite encouraging given how bad they were last year.
Daron: yeah, that’s solid
Justin: they averaged 84 ypg last year.Â 84!!!!!
Daron:Â Â OH WOW.Â That’s, um, desultory, Â Â at best
Justin: also a Special Teams TD.Â I foresee defense and ST scoring ringing upÂ and in a game that involves the probable best defensive player in the country
Daron: I can see that
Justin: that leads me to say Tennessee is going to win this game
Daron: also, while the ground game improved, it still has some ugly on it
Justin: oh sure
Daron: it took 38 carries for those 144 yards
Justin: well 35 for 159 with sacksos still not good
im thinking…24-10 Tennesee with at least one defensive score
I think Eric Berry gets his
Justin: err non-offense score
Daron: 21-17.Â Bastardfaces over the bruins blech. It grosses me out to say that
Justin: yes i know
Daron: Also.Â I’m just gonna say this for the record: Â I could see this one spiraling a little bit, via bad play after bad play by both squads
Justin: so like last year?
Daron: and ending up 35-27, or some such.
