John Adams joins Caleb Calhoun and Dave Hooker to discuss Tennessee Football disappointments, potential transfers, the week 12 coaching fails and what to make of Josh Heupel to this point on Off the Hook Sports’ Tuesday, Nov. 21 podcast. The basketball Vols in the Maui Invitational also make news, and who should UT start at quarterback Saturday?
How much faith is there in Josh Heupel?
After a top 10 season in 2022, Tennessee Football head coach Josh Heupel was the hottest commodity in the sport. However, the Vols have been somewhat of a disappointment this season with their 7-4 record. What level of confidence should fans now have in Heupel given his third year on the job?
Who is the biggest Tennessee Football disappointment?
There are lots of reasons Tennessee Football hasn’t been able to match the success it had in 2022, including injuries and losing Hendon Hooker, Jalin Hyatt and Cedric Tillman. Taking all that into account, though, who has been the biggest disappointment for the Vols this season?
Can transfers save Tennessee Football?
When Josh Heupel took over as Tennessee Football head coach, he lucked out with Virginia Tech Hokies transfer Hendon Hooker making an immediate impact. Since then, the Vols have relied on the transfer portal to offset talent deficiencies. Going forward, what level of impact can transfers have on UT?
Worst Week 12 coaching decisions
Maryland Terrapins head coach Mike Locksley and Miami Hurricanes head coach Mario Cristobal burning timeouts in the stupidest moments headline our Week 12 Football IQ segment. UCF Knights head coach Gus Malzahn and Kentucky Wildcats head coach Mark Stoops mismanaging the clock at the end of the first half are also on there.
Should Nico or Joe start at QB Saturday?
Which quarterback should start for Tennessee Football Saturday against the Vanderbilt Commodores? Given the fact that the Vols have nothing left to play for and Joe Milton III won’t be here next year anyway, should Josh Heupel go ahead and pull the trigger by starting Nico Iamaleava?
