Killing the Giant Killers

Vols 39, Golden Eagles 19

Following the typical playbook for a Tennessee pay-per-view game, the Vols started out shaky and rallied in the second half to win handily. Southern Mississippi is legendary for creating upsets, but five games with Tennessee have yet to perpetate the legend.

I didn’t see this game, but I listened to the often confusing successors to John Ward and Bill Anderson on a streaming webcast of the game. The offense sounded sound, and the defense sounded still shaky. I hope it’s just my ears failing me…

All in all, a good prep for next week’s foray into the swamplands.
