It's okay, you aren't comprehending what I am saying. I'll break it down for you.
UT will get it "turned around" (winning bowl games etc), but they will not get past 3rd in the East for a longgg time. There are three teams who are already where UT wants to be and barring sanctions will stay at the top. UT needs to hope that one or more of them fall down (like how UT did years ago).
In order for them to consistently be a threat in the East, they will need for one/two of the power East teams to falter for consecutive years. I do not see that happening anytime soon, maybe I am insane though.
I said Mizzou was coming on strong, so I don't see UT staying in 5th, not Mizzou. But once again you did not comprehend my post.
I agree with LeeSC that UT will move into the top 4, but I see them getting no higher than 4 in the East (consistently) for a long time
