Tennessee Offense vs. Penn State Defense
Tennessee's backfield is talented and as healthy as it has been in quite some time, as LaMarcus Coker, Montario Hardesty and Arian Foster are all strong runners who show good burst through the hole. However, the Volunteers' ground game has been one of the least productive in the nation this year and they should have a hard time establishing the run against a strong Penn State defensive front seven. First off, Tennessee's offensive line isn't a physical unit that takes pride in driving defenders off the ball and it likely will be without ROG Anthony Parker, who is expected to miss this game with a knee injury. The front five will have a hard time controlling the line of scrimmage working against a defensive line headlined by DT Jay Alford. Alford is an explosive one-gap defender who can make plays in the backfield and benefits from playing with a strong supporting cast. Though Penn State suspended Ed Johnson, who started all 12 games this year, for violating team rules, either Phillip Taylor or Steve Roach is expected to replace him. Both can hold their own at the point of attack and that will make it harder for Tennessee to commit two blockers to Alford. It's also worth noting that defensive coordinator Tom Bradley can mask Johnson's absence by running more 3-4 schemes because of the depth he has at linebacker. Secondly and most importantly, LBs Paul Posluszny, Dan Conner, Sean Lee and the versatile Tim Shaw, when he drops back from defensive end, stalk ball carriers like a pack of hyenas. They should make life very difficult for the Volunteers' backs.

PQ is pretty good, grass isn't swimming and no macroblocking yet.

Getting a few short audio drops in 3rd quarter. HR10 and D*. Doesn't seem to be the 9 second drop (very short and no quiver at end).

I had the dropouts in that area of the game as well on my HR10-250.

I thought the PQ looked just average on most camera angles but the main midfield camera. Crowd shots in the background looked fuzzy on other camera angles as well.

Holly Rowe and her reporting is...uh useless....almost as useless as a Tennessee DB on any given passing play today.
