|Big stakes at Mississippi State on Saturday|
This brings us to this week's road game at
the stakes are high. A road win against
this quality opponent would be another step in the rebuilding of the program.
The Vols came close against Tennessee ,
and a win here could be a springboard to an excellent second half of the
season. If we lose, it will be another
frustrating loss that drops the team's record to 3-3 with back-to-back games against
Georgia Alabama and coming up. Additionally, if we lose to State, Bama, and South Carolina Carolina, the team's record will be 3-5 and the vultures
may start circling
when it comes to head coach Derek Dooley's future. Knoxville
Personally, I believe Dooley deserves another season when considering the horrible status of the program when he took over. However, we all know that fairness is not always a part of the college football landscape. A win would do the program and Dooley a lot of good, but a loss continues the uncertainty we have lived with since Phillip Fulmer was fired.
