Knock 'Em Dead, Erik Ainge
After setting records as a true Freshman and leading us to the SEC Championship game, you became a victim of the Randy McSanders Clown Show and Rick Clausen Love Fest. One admittedly horrible play against LSU has turned many against you. Let's be honest Mr. Ainge, you are not going to play QB for Tennessee very long by throwing underhanded panic-tosses to the other team in your own endzone. That stuff has to stop. Throw the ball away, take a knee, spike the ball, whatever. Just never ever do that again. I fully expect you to take the bull by the horns and become the QB we all knew you could be. You do not have to beat Cal all by yourself. Just dump the ball off and make good passes. No need to be a hero, there is plenty of glory to go around. This is a team game. Now get out there and knock 'em dead kid.
