Paul Fortenberry of Volquest.com is my guest on this Pressbox Podcast as we preview the Mizzou-Tennesee game coming up this Saturday in Knoxville. If there was going to be a game where Tiger fans finally get to see DGB have his first big time game in college, this could be the week.
Paul talks about Tennessee’s defensive struggles and in particular the struggles of the secondary and immediately the question popped into my head…”Would offensive coordinator David Yost take some shots down the field and go long with Green-Beckham?”
Now, don’t let Tennessee’s 4-5 record fool you. While they have given up a lot of points, they also score a lot. Junior QB Tyler Bray has two big, fast weapons at wide receiver. 6’3 Cordarrelle Patterson and 6’4 Justin Hunter. The two have combined for 1,233 yards and 11 touchdowns. While the Tennessee coaches say Bray is locked in, Paul tells us he has been known to be careless with the football. Can the Mizzou defense continue their ways of forcing turnovers?
Finally, Paul will talk about recruiting and why he thinks the Tigers focusing in on Atlanta, GA is a bad idea.
