Man. I hate sweating out ballgames. But, that's exactly what happened on Saturday.
I just get this feeling that they're holding something back for LSU. It may creep up and bite us in the ass this weekend at UT, but it just feels like, in the 2nd half, they're getting conservative and trying to bust trends more than kick ass. That's fine with me, as long as we keep winning...but it's just getting a lil bit too close, y'know?
But, alas, a win is a win, and that's fine with me.
Things don't look too good for Mount Cody. It appears he will be out 3-4 weeks, which is NOT cool, because that includes the LSU game. I think we might can get through UT and Arkansas State without him. Maybe not the LSU game. But, I could be wrong about that. I think the guys we have are capable...but there's such a drop off from Cody to Nick Gentry it's ridiculous.
Here's hoping everything goes ok over the next 2 weeks and maybe he's back in time for the LSU game. Cause we'll need him in that one.
Tennessee has some injury issues as well. Gerald Jones is out for the game with a high-ankle sprain, as is senior offensive lineman Anthony Parker. Both of these guys were starters and big-time contributors. I guess that MAYBE that equals out to Terrence Cody. Maybe.
Regardless, we're gonna have to play one hell of a game Saturday night to be able to escape Knoxville with a win. Game time is 6:45pm CST on ESPN. Which might be better for us. Haha.
