When a quarterback throws for 251 yards on 18-of-33 completions and it's considered an off-night, you know what kind of signal caller you really have, and unfortunately for the Vols, you know just how much you are going to miss him for a while.
Bray had a few passes sail on him, and it's not clear if he was just throwing away some balls or they just came out of his hand the wrong way.
One thing that was clear, however, is that Georgia's defensive backs cut off the deep pass all evening long. There were some big plays, but most of Bray's yardage came on underneath routes to the tight end and running back.
Losing Bray to a broken thumb on the only touchdown drive of the night was about the worst thing that could have happened to this young Vols team.
Senior Matt Simms came in and took the Vols into the endzone on 4-of-6 passing for 39 yards. His 4th-and-16 pass to the Georgia 1-yard line with a little over three minutes left was the play of the game for Tennessee.
