Vols' Mistakes Costly In 34-3 Loss At Florida

Saturday, September 21, 2019
Despite a third quarter that saw Tennessee force two turnovers and record a pair of sacks, the Vols fell to the No. 9/8 Florida Gators 34-3 on Saturday afternoon in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in their SEC opener.
 
The UT defense completed the afternoon forcing four turnovers.
 
Senior linebacker Daniel Bituli recorded a game-high two sacks.
His first sack of the season forced a Kyle Trask fumble, the first of his career, which was recovered by freshman 
Henry To'o To'o at the UF 19-yard line. It was the first fumble recovery for To'o To'o. UF lost four yards on Bituli's second sack of the contest.
 
Bituli and To'o To'o's add eight tackles each to lead the Vols.
 
In the secondary, Theo Jackson and Alonte Taylor recorded their first career interceptions in the third quarter. Taylor's came off a pass-breakup from Jackson.
 
Though the Vols struggled offensively, Jauan Jennings had a milestone day. UT's opening drive saw Jennings become the 22nd Vol to reach the 100-reception milestone. The catch came on a six-yard toss from Jarrett Guarantano. Jennings finished the game with seven catches for 73 yards. He is now tied for 16th on the Vols' all-time reception list with 106 catches.
 
UT's offense also got a shakeup in the second half as true freshman quarterback Brian Mauer started the quarter. Hailing from nearby Ocala, Fla., he threw for 46 yards on three passes to move the Vols into field goal range. The drive was capped by Brent Cimaglia's nation-leading ninth consecutive field goal this season.
 
Quavaris Crouch recorded his first career carry in the third quarter, going four yards for a first down.
 
The Vols return to Neyland Stadium on Oct. 5 to host No. 3 Georgia after having next Saturday off.

Good Urban Design

Chattanooga is enjoying a robust movement to plan developments in a number of downtown neighborhoods, and there is good reason to believe that well designed development should be welcomed. The opposite is also true, that bad or poorly designed development should not be welcomed, especially if it seriously degrades the existing neighborhood. In the case of a sought after rezoning ...

Roy Exum: Manny Is Best For All

I am not a big fan of Bill Hagerty, the early front-runner to replace Lamar Alexander as Tennessee’s next Senator, because I dislike the thought of six more years with a partisan puppet. Hagerty was in Chattanooga earlier this week to tell the Hamilton County Pachyderm Club how loyal he is to President Donald Trump, how much he enjoys laughing at the Democrats’ presidential field ...
