Well, that was a closer game than most people expected. Interestingly, Crompton was basically the one saving grace of the offense today. He put us in a position to win, and that’s all you can ask from your starting QB. He played like a champ.
The defense had another awesome outing, and if it weren’t for two nearly 50 yard field goals, Tennessee very possibly could have won the game. Monte Kiffin’s D did their part in not allowing a single touchdown.
The kick return teams were serviceable against possibly Alabama’s weakest unit, and the Kickoff teams seemed adequate for the most part.
Am I missing anything?
I don’t think I am. If you can think of any unit I might have missed… let me know.
I mean, perhaps it was fate. Some dude named Lincoln, is bound to have bad luck in the South (too soon?). OK, that was a cheap joke, but it was too good to not share.
Seriously though, I’m getting more and more excited about the team. Even after a close loss that stings a lot, consider that Tennessee has played two teams ranked #1 this year, lost one by 10, then the next one by 2. It feels like this could very well be the last of the close losses. Let’s hope that’s the case.
Alabama played a good, tough game, and they should be commended for doing what they needed to to grind out a win in a rivalry game. Now, allow me to go wash myself.
