Tennessee held its last practice of the bye week on Thursday. Then, it’s off to a much needed weekend of rest before Tennessee’s biggest challenge of the season – a trip to Tuscaloosa to face the tenth-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide.
Here are four things to know:
- Tennessee quarterback Joshua Dobbs has proven he’s not a player that should be easily dismissed, as per Knoxville News Sentinel columnist Mike Strange.
- There’s a fine balance between being physical and prudent during an off week, according to GoVols247.com reporter Ryan Callahan.
- Despite the criticism, persistence was key for first-year Tennessee offensive coordinator Mike DeBord, according to GoVols247.com reporter Wes Rucker.
- The controversy surrounding the hit that ended defensive tackle Shy Tuttle’s season continued on Thursday. One Vols player had some strong thoughts about the play from last Saturday’s UGA game.
