POTTS WAS THE BEST PLAYER ON THE FIELD

He probably had a rough time sleeping over the weekend thinking about Tech's missed opportunities and what could have been.
But I have never been more impressed with a QB's performance than I was on Saturday watching Potts operate.
On the road in front of 105+ thousand screaming UT fans. Against the #2 ranked team in the country led by a Heisman front runner.
He was poised. He was efficient. He was accurate. He was passionate. He was sensational.
And, oh my goodness, did he ever get obliterated by one of the biggest, baddest defenders in the country.
Not only did Potts get back up after Sergio Kindle nearly decapitated him...he led the Raiders on a scoring drive the next time he touched the ball.
Not many of us will ever know what it feels like to get hit like that...ever. Maybe if you've been involved in a head-on collision on the interstate. Other than that, nothing comes close.
Needless to say, Potts is a tough kid.
There were a lot of things out of Taylor's control that led to the Tech loss. But the things he could control were handled professionally and remarkably.
He was the best player on the field and has a huge career in front of him.
