No major injuries.

Hill can spin it and made the throws and decisions throughout the game.

They only converted 1 third down

Parker white was perfect and the leading scorer

Enagbare had a great game - tons of energy

Shi Smith looked and played like a #1 WR.  Could have a huge year.

We used a fullback

Thank you.  None of our previous OCs have used blocking backs to make up for deficiencies in the OL and it has driven me nuts.

Enagbare kinda reminded me of Clowney many times in the game.  Let's hope that continues.

Hill kept the offense up-tempo most of the game.  Tempo can really make up for mismatches if you call the right plays.  Usually we do it against OOC opponents okay then it disappears the rest of the season.  I also think the other players respect Hill's courage overcoming the three ACLs and it creates a spark that really hasn't been there the past few seasons.  Shaw used to create the same spark when he played hurt.  You could tell Clowney and Vic Hampton fed off of that stuff.

Parker White has become a really great kicker for us and will win games for us all other things being equal.

Although we lost, the team had an emotional fire against the Vols that we haven't seen too much of the past several years.

I was pleased with Hill's performance. He is accurate and has zip on his passes. I think White, Harris and Fenwick will make a serviceable backfield, more so than I had hoped. I think some of the biggest weaknesses on display (play along both lines and safety run support) are fixable this season with coaching (OL/safety play) and personnel swaps (DL). The offensive game plan looked far more cohesive than at any other time during Muschamp's tenure, and we actually made worthwhile adjustments on the fly, something that was lacking during McClendon's tenure. The way things ended was obviously gut-wrenching/angering, but this was a better first-game performance than I have seen from us in a couple of years.

Kevin Harris looked very good against florida. Horn, Hill, Burch, Pickens, and Smith continue to be good players. I was fine with the offensive playcalling much of the afternoon. 

I was also glad to see Israel Makuamu play well this week after not playing much last week.

 

This may be Year 5 for CWM, but it is really Year -2 for our next coach.

If we had had this offense of consistency and diversity did the last 4 years, we wouldn’t be discussing at all about firing Muschamp.  I’m very interested to see how we do against vandy, Missouri, Kentucky and ole miss.  If you win those 4 and pull one out of the western game, I think you have to feel good about our program.

Mr Perfect on the season.  White is automatic right now.

Also - I think the OL for the most part played more physically than they have.  More pulling guards and moving folks off the ball.  Our backs, overall took what was given and hit the holes instead of dancing or tiptoeing to the line.  Looks to be better coaching on both parts there.

Yes.  About 7-10 days ago.

I remember seeing post where he joined the practice squad. Didn't realize he got activated.

Thanks. I actually had the game on last night and watched the first half, though I was not really paying much attention to it. If I realized he was on playing, I would have paid more attention.

Glad we didn't play down to the level of competition. 41-7 Vanderbilt

Vanderbilt could not get a hand on Kevin Harris most of the afternoon and he should some speed.

Colin Hill managed a good game and spread the ball around to receivers who actually caught some balls this week. Hill had two rushing TDs.

I don't have any complaints about Mike Bobo's selection of plays through three games (my problems and worry is that poor clock management may show up at points throughout the season).

 

1ST win of the season.

Hill is the best QB we have had in a while.  Callin' his own number with the QB sneaks and such creates respect and momentum.  We haven't really had that kinda stuff since Connor Shaw, who coincidentally is on our staff this year.

His influence on our QBs going forward will be a quiet game-changer for us, just like it was during his playing time here.

His success on the field will mean that we don’t have to rush the development of Hilinski and Doty. They have time to learn in practices and digest the full playbook without the pressure of being the starting qb. While either may be serviceable now, the time to learn could be critical for our future
