Junior League

Vols 24, Bruins 27

In football, experience can make or break you.  The fact that Tennessee had a young, inexperienced team this year was no surprise.  The fact that they were inexperienced enough to lose to a UCLA team that played like a mediocre high school squad was more a disappointment than a surprise.

There were holes all around, undoubtedly camouflaged by Bruin QB Kevin Craft’s 4 interceptions in the first half.  Foster’s crucial fumble,  missed field goals, and missing players. Crompton looked rough, but in all fairness didn’t have much help.  The Vol offensive line — the one aspect of the Tennessee team that had experience — handled UCLA’s blitz as effectively as a screen door on a submarine.

On the bright side, overtime offers some extra experience, right?  Ughh.

    Don’t get down. Remember, Kentucky won.

    Did anyone mention the UCLA coaching? Something in the mix made UT’s secondary as useless as a song you can’t sing.
