5 questions with a Tennessee beat writer


On the other side of Auburn’s 21-day break waits a team that coach Gus Malzahn is wary of.


“When you look at them, they’ve got a lot of guys back offensively and defensively on their team,” Malzahn said.


Gus Malzahn has been saying that Tennessee’s record doesn’t illustrate how strong they actually are as a team.


But -- I wrote about it this week at the Athletic -- but we’ve seen their percentage of Tennessee’s passes that have been pressured has actually gone up this year despite the fact that the five-star tackles that are sophomores now should be more experienced.


But also, the tackles Darnell Wright and Wanya Morris have just been beaten, straight up, a few times this year and have given up free shots on Jarrett Guarantano.


Or do they say ‘We want to give Bailey a shot and if he struggles do we bring Jarrett Guarantano off the bench’ like we saw last year?
