We don’t need no stinkin’ Badgers

Vols 21, Badgers 17

A mediocre game filled with mediocre moments and mediocre play was enough for Tennessee to defeat the Wisconsin in a mostly mediocre bowl game. With most of its offensive coaches in a lame duck session (David Cutcliffe, Trooper Taylor, and others are all departing for more senior positions), the Vols did well to fend off a scrappy Badger offense to win their first bowl game in three years.

So against all odds, Tennessee finishes 10-4, so I’ll gladly tip my hat to a team which turned an abysmal beginning into a non-embarrassing season. It’s certainly better than anyone expected. On the slate for 2008:

  1. Find some offensive coaches
  2. Find a new quarterback
  3. Last but not least, BEAT FLORIDA

Here’s to a hopeful hibernation for the Vols!
