In this gem from Rocky Top, we have two teams who would rather forget about what happened last year.
Montario Hardesty and Bryce Brown look like they are going to be a handful for those who are unfortunate enough to draw the Vols on their schedule this year, and UCLA is next in line.
While Jonathan Crompton looked efficient under center, the Vol offense is a run first unit, and why wouldn't they be when they have that kind of talent?
While UCLA had a ton of injuries across the board last year, it did give a lot of the younger players a chance to get valuable playing time and starts. UCLA returns four linebackers who have started more than just a handful of games, and since they play out of a base 4-3, that creates solid depth at this all-important position.
Just seeing the color of these uniforms on a football field in Knoxville, Tennessee on an early fall day is enough to get any football fan's engine revved up, but the inner matchup is a whole game unto itself.
