The Vols got off to a promising start to its new season last Friday with a convincing 35-21 win over a decent North Carolina State team. Coach Derek Dooley and his staff were clearly prepared, and for the most part the players — from quarterback Tyler Bray to breakout newcomer Cordarrelle Patterson — were sharp.
Meanwhile Georgia State, UT’s opponent this Saturday, was clobbered by South Carolina State, 33-6, in their opener last weekend.
Obviously, the Vols are a prohibitive favorite against the Panthers in Neyland Stadium Saturday (kickoff: 4 p.m.).
But oddsmakers work with theories, and fans ... well, fans often work with emotions.
So we ask the Big Orange faithful: How concerned are you about Georgia State?
