Everybody is high on Tennessee Football players. Caleb Calhoun and Dave Hooker discuss recognition of Joe Milton III, James Pearce Jr. and Dee Williams on Off the Hook Sports’ Tuesday, Oct. 17 podcast. They also cover Georgia Bulldogs tight end Brock Bowers, Week 7 coaching blunders and the Vols in the basketball top 10. Blake Toppmeyer and John Adams join.
Nick Saban, Urban Meyer LIE about Tennessee Football QB
John Adams of the Knoxville News Sentinel joins the show to discuss Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban saying Tennessee Football quarterback Joe Milton III isn’t much different from Hendon Hooker and Urban Meyer saying at the Knoxville Quarterback Club that the Vols signal-caller is Cam Newton. Why the lies?
SEC recognizes Tennessee Football DE, RS
James Pearce Jr. earned SEC co-Defensive Lineman of the Week for his play on Saturday, with one sack and two tackles for a loss, helping Tennessee Football beat the Texas A&M Aggies. Meanwhile, Vols return specialist Dee Williams was named SEC co-Special Teams Player of the Week after a punt return for a touchdown in that game.
What Brock Bowers injury means for SEC
Georgia Bulldogs tight end Brock Bowers suffered a high ankle sprain in his team’s win last Saturday against the Vanderbilt Commodores, which will at least impact him for a few weeks. This is the same injury that derailed Tua Tagovailoa in his final season with Alabama. What does this mean for the rest of the conference? John Adams remains to discuss.

They do have Santiago Vescovi and Josiah-Jordan James coming back, but they lost Olivier Nkamhoua and Julian Phillips to transfer. As a result, is this too high?
