Tennessee football blame pie: Who’s responsible for Vols’ 35-13 Alabama loss?

It’s fair to blame the officials for lots of bad calls, and we’ll still have more to write about there. However, Tennessee football had many of its own make critical mistakes in its 35-13 loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide Saturday night.

The Vols deserve a lot of credit for keeping the game close and having a chance to cut it to one score midway through the fourth quarter. But it’s their fault and their fault alone they didn’t cut it to one score.

Who’s most responsible? Well, it was pretty easy to nail it down because the blowout came to just a few specific plays.
