How ugly was that?
Missouri 29 Tennessee 21
If all football games were that ugly, I would have stopped watching football a long time ago.
That is not really a knock on either team’s will or desire. It’s just that the elegant side of football was completely missing Saturday night in Knoxville. What was left was ineffective offenses and hard-nosed defenses, with a truckload of mistakes thrown in for bad measure.
It was tedious to the point where I just wanted to leave my living room for long stretches of time.
But I suffered through the entire evening, glad that this was not the end of the season, not the end of Version 2.0 of Team 118.
Or better yet, perhaps we could nock it back a notch to something like Version 1.2.
That is a lot better than Version 1.0, which might have left us trying to avoid an 8 loss season next week in Nashville.
Instead, we have a nearly certain bowl bid awaiting after the Vols meet one of the worst Vandy teams in history.
Happy Thanksgiving indeed.
