CAN’T SPELL “STATISTICAL ANALYSIS” WITHOUT “TENNESSEE” PROBABLY. Our pals over at Rocky Top Talk give a nice breakdown of the Vols’ trends this year: starting games out pretty awful but finishing really strong. They’re also among the best in the nation at preventing big plays, something we enjoy doing. Something’s going to give on Saturday. They are. Not us. Them. OK.

[BURIES QB NEWS IN SECOND PARAGRAPH OF DAILY LINK DUMP]: So apparently the Ags pretty much wrapped up the commitment of super-heralded QB recruit Kellen Mond yesterday. Mond has signed financial aid papers and will enroll early, making him the class of 2017’s highest-rated player.

It’s great that we’ve got a really talented QB coming to play Aggie Football. But let’s kinda sit back and see what kind of player he ends up being before we trip over ourselves with internet craziness. No point in getting ahead of things here like certain other entities have done before.

CHAVIS vs. TENNESSEE. Did you know: John Chavis is undefeated (2-0) against his alma mater since leaving the Vols’ staff for LSU? The first game was the infamous “13 guys on the field” game, which is clearly a system they installed after Chief left. Anyway, what’s overlooked is that LSU’s defense only gave up 217 yards in that day. The other matchup was a 38-7 trouncing in 2011 in which Chavis’ defense only gave up 239 yards in Knoxville. Granted, these were Derek Dooley teams. But Butch Jones hasn’t exactly shown the ability to coach a complete game yet this year.

Enjoy your Tuesdays.
