Another embarrassing performance by the Vols.  Just terrible.  In a game they should have dominated, they fell to BYU in double OT.  

Just when you think they can't fall any farther, they say "hold my beer" and do just that.  

Wow.

FYI best fan reaction video I've ever seen.  This from a Vols fan BEFORE their loss to BYU today:  Link

That’s great. Just imagine the video he made after yesterday’s game.

LSU/Texas was my kind of college football game - two top teams, a wild atmosphere and both teams showed up and swung for the fences.

I expect there to be some sort of shake up with the Vols. The defense was awful, and they lost due to blown assignments as much as overall bad play.

Someone on Facebook blamed the Georgia State loss on the QB. Ummm....yeah. Blame the team losing by 8 points when they're favored by 26+ and end up giving up 38 on the offense. The Vols shouldn't have given up more than 13 points to the Panthers.

I haven't checked FB yet, but if that person blames the BYU loss on the offense again, then they're clearly too mentally deficient to be watching football. Or related to someone on the defense.....

Thrilling win for the Gators.  I hate these kinds of games, but if they end up in a win I guess I can't complain.  Franks does as well as he can, but goes out to injury in the third.  Trask steps in and scores 19 unanswered points to lead the Gators to victory.  By all accounts, the Wildcats should have won that game but we find a way to pull victory from the jaws of defeat.  

Interesting for the Gators moving forward.  Franks is done for the season.  It's Trask's team now.  I know Mullen is high on Trask, which speaks volumes, but how does he hold up during what will be a brutal October schedule: Auburn, LSU, South Carolina, Georgia?  

Time will tell, but in the meantime....GO GATORS!!!!!

Thrilling win, but, man, that defense's complete inability to get off the field on 3rd and long is a major concern.

I will say when Trask came in, I knew the story of him leading the comeback win was there waiting to happen - and I was glad it did!

Next week should be interesting with Georgia/Notre Dame and Michigan/Wisconsin.
