That Utah State game would scare the hell out of me if I'm a Vol fan, though.

I think UT will win, but Chuckie Keeton will have a field day. It'll be something like 41-35 with the Vols hanging on for dear life at the end.

BRUTAL schedule.

But they always say a head coach makes the most distinguishable improvement between years 1 and 2. That's why I expect a bit of a 'surprise' season from the Vols and they'll get to 7-5.

The conference schedule is frontloaded, and it'll get ugly in October. But I think by November the Vols will have developed some stability on the offensive line. They have a good selection of skill players, they just need a QB who can get the ball to them. Defense should be better as last year it was a nightmare and the Vols have recruited well, especially in the back seven.

Marquez North should have a breakout season if they can be a little more creative in terms of how they get him the ball. He's a true talent.

7-5. A trip to the Music City Bowl where they will play North Carolina State.


Wins over UF and Mizzou?

It also stated that all 5 O-Linemen starters would be new this year and that Tennessee lost it's top 5 tacklers from last year.

This will take a year or two at best.

Neither of those are true. AJ Johnson had to be one of our top tacklers and the two safeties had to be up there as well. Plus Marcus Jackson has started games for us, and Wiesman has played a bunch as well.

Florida is the most important game by far.

Why? If we suck, it's no big deal.
If we are great, it is expected you lose.

EDIT: If we suck and you still lose, I guess that would be a big deal.

LOL
This is going to be their worst season in a while.
I have no opinion on Butch, but he should get a complete pass for whatever happens this season.

Here is what Phil Steele has listed.

* Tennessee loses every single starter on their offensive and defensive lines. Combined with a tough schedule, that does not bode well for Butch Jones.

Saturday Down South has Tennessee with 5 starters back on offense and 5 on defense and no special team returners.

KnoxBlogs:
The Vols are losing all five starters, who accounted for roughly 92 percent of all snaps taken this year. The potential replacements are green.

That looks more like 3-9, 4-8 than anything. UT may not get to five wins.......

Jackson redshirted last year after being an OLine starter and we lost 1 of our top 5 tacklers (Sapp)but get Maggit back from a redshirt.

Like I said before it doesn't matter how good you are.  Its that you are Florida and it is still 1999 in our minds.

I am in no way arguing with you because unless your on our schedule I don't keep up with Tenn. Having said that,  I do buy the preseason mag's and read about a lot of teams and all pretty much say the same thing.

But good luck either way. Your not on our schedule......

You mean 2013 Gators. And I know.

I have Florida winning the East this year.

I just think the division as a whole is going to be chaos. Every team with at least two conference losses. UF, UGA, USC and Missouri all finishing within a game of each other in the standings.

UF will still be susceptible early in the year, but I think they make it to Atlanta.

This is actually the scenario I see playing out.
