College Football Week 3 Recap

There were a lot of disappointing teams in college football Week 3, from Michigan State to USC to Virginia Tech, but to me the most disappointing showing came from Tennessee in Saturday night’s 37-20 home loss to Florida. Not because the Vols played the worst, or suffered the most humiliating defeat. But because of what the loss says about where the program is at. With South Carolina and Georgia looking like strong contenders in the SEC East, Tennessee needed to win a game like this on their homefield to show that third-year coach Derek Dooley had the Vols moving to that same class. Instead, it’s Florida’s second-year man Wil Muschamp who gets the signature win and you have to wonder how much longer Dooley will get to prove he’s the man to return Tennessee to contending status just in the Eastern Division of this conference.
