Tennessee Volunteers @ Florida Gators: Live Thread


It’s gameday and it’s football time in……Gainesville.

The Tennessee Volunteers are all set to take the field against the Florida Gators, hoping to end an eight game losing streak.

Redshirt freshman Nathan Peterman will be making his first career start today, just 65 miles from his hometown of Fruit Cove, FL. Peterman will be taking over for junior Justin Worley, who started the Vols first three games. Butch Jones re-opened the quarterback competition this week after being unhappy with Worley’s performance thus far.

We invite you to hang out here with us and comment below. As we like to say, we want this site to be a virtual sports bar on Saturdays, where you can discuss the game with other Vol fans.

We even welcome fans of the opposing team!

    20 minutes until gametime, anyone have thoughts on Peterman starting today?

  • zach ragan

    Peterman’s insertion as the starting QB should open up the playbook more for the Vols. Peterman isn’t Michael Vick out there, but he’s considerably more mobile than Justin Worley.

    Here we go, Vols defer

  • zach ragan

    Good defensive start for the Vols, not a good start offensively with Neal fumbling. You CAN’T give Florida the ball back, especially in the red zone.

  • zach ragan

    That is what the Vols will have to do today to pull the upset. CREATE TURNOVERS

  • zach ragan

    Driskel out, get ready for a lot of running

  • zach ragan

    Vols D getting a bit winded. They’ve been on the field basically the whole game.

  • zach ragan

    Vols defense is looking good so far. Nice tackling.

  • zach ragan

    Big time hold for Vols, only giving up 3 after the turnover.

  • zach ragan

    Vols getting in a rhythm as they stick with Peterman

  • zach ragan

    7-3 Vols after one. Tennessee is starting to settle down on offense. They can’t afford any more mistakes against Florida at home.

  • zach ragan

    Vols doing what they can’t do today. Turning the ball over

  • zach ragan

    Well, Peterman isn’t the guy, that’s for sure now.

  • zach ragan

    This is the ugliest of ugly games.

  • zach ragan

    If Justin Worley isn’t in the game after this, well smh

  • zach ragan

    Let’s see how Worley handles this second half.

  • zach ragan

    Vols found a rhythm on that drive, settle for a FG

  • zach ragan

    Solomon Patton dropped a wide open pass.

  • zach ragan

    Vols still about 2 years away from competing in the SEC

  • zach ragan

    Ejecting rule being enforced against Florida, good call.

  • zach ragan

    Well, Vols down by 2 scores

  • zach ragan

    Vols are a turnover machine today.
