Time for the Hedge Clippers
A.J. Green is back after paying the price for selling one of his invaluable jerseys a while back. I doubt he’ll be too rusty, which means that the best part of the Bulldog team just got better. And since Tennessee’s strength so far this season seems to be pass defense, Saturday’s game, when Georgia QB Aaron Murray decides to put it up in the air, might get quite interesting. Other than that, there’s not too much to look forward to in terms of overall quality. Even the Dooley heritage angle to this event has me bored.
Normally fireworks erupt when Tennessee and Georgia get together. But something tells me this season’s episode of this rivalry that keeps getting better and better will be a bit of a snoozer. I just hope that last week’s tragedy doesn’t affect the Vols’ mental approach to the game. I don’t think it will. In fact, I’m somewhat optimistic that it will help more than it will hurt.
Just not yet, though.
