Former Tennessee Vols quarterback Josh Dobbs recently appeared on “Bussin with the Boys” with Titans offensive lineman Taylor Lewan and former Titans linebacker Will Compton.

The conversation lasted for a couple of hours and included Dobbs telling the story of the 2016 Hail Mary to beat Georgia in Athens (the story from his vantage point is fantastic).

After Dobbs told the story about beating Georgia in 2016, he was asked about former Vols head coach Butch Jones (Dobbs played for Jones from 2013 to 2016). He was also asked about former Vols running back Alvin Kamara’s usage at Tennessee in 2015 and 2016.

“He’s at Arkansas State, good dude,” said Dobbs when asked about Jones. “Really good dude.”

“Well, we had Jalen Hurd, too,” said Dobbs in response to a question about whether or not Kamara was underutilized. “Jalen Hurd was a 1,000-yard rusher as a freshman and sophomore. And then Alvin got there, too. And then once Jalen got hurt, Alvin obviously started going off — he was already going off. It’s just, we would give the ball to Jalen a little bit more than we gave it to Alvin.”

“Obviously in hindsight, you’re like ‘man this dude is amazing, he’s one of the best running backs in the league, wish we could’ve used him a little more in college’. At the time, we thought we were utilizing people the best we could.”

The Kamara/Tennessee debate has raged on for years. Mostly, I think, because of the success Kamara’s had in the NFL — though he certainly showed he was electric at UT.

Hurd played at a high level for the Vols before leaving the program in late 2016. His 1,285 rushing yards in 2015 is the 7th most rushing yards all-time in a season by a Tennessee running back. It’s not like the Vols were struggling at running back.

I do wonder, however, how many yards Kamara could’ve rushed for had he been the featured back during his two seasons in Knoxville. Unfortunately, we’ll never know.
