All in all, it was an impressive showing by an attack unit that appears to be miles ahead of this time last year.
"I think we're a little further ahead," Clausen said. "We have quite a bit more in the package. We have a lot more guys that know what they're supposed to do, and we're just trying to take it from there."
The Vols have more in the package this year because Clausen and Ainge now have a year's experience in the UT system. Obviously, the more responsibility the QBs show they can handle, the more responsibility they are given.
"We tend to do more now," Clausen said. "But, at the same time, we have to be wary of trying to do too much. Coach (Randy) Sanders is allowing us a little rope, but we can't hang ourselves with it."
"These guys are really doing a good job of picking up the system – from the linemen to the receivers to the running backs to the tight ends," Clausen said. "They're all starting to learn, which is good to see.
"It just goes to show that the guys want to learn. They have the drive to learn, and that's always good to find in those (new) guys."
