Honestly, I would not be surprised to see you all get 7 wins but then again I would not be surprised to see you all beat someone that you should not beat and then lose to someone like Vandy or UK.
All that talk is only for recruiting. Which has been working well so far.

I think UT can get to 7 wins based upon some of your comments in the first post.

I think UT beats UF, Mizzou, KY and Vandy this season. If you were playing Ole Miss in Knoxville, I would give you the advantage there, but playing them on the road might be too much.

Utah State seems like the biggest trap. First game of the season, you guys (I think) have a lot of youth in the two deep. It also strikes me as the kind of game where Utah State might have circled as their one big game to beat someone notable and have all their practices geared towards taking you down. Of course I don't know a thing about them so they might just be really really bad...depends on their talent level as well as their number of older guys I think.
All of your points about the Utah St game are correct.

The following will either be starting or in the two deep game one for TN.

QB (RS Freshman Ferguson or SO Dobbs)
RB (TF Hurd and Scott)
WR (SO North, JUCO Pearson and TF Malone)
TE (TF Helm or Wolf)
OL (TF Thomas, JUCO Blair)

DL(TF Hendrix, JUCO Williams, SO Vereen, TF Sawyers)
LB (TF Bates, JUCO Weatherd)
DB (TF Kelly Jr TF Gaulden)

That is just game 1.

A.J. Johnson and Curt Maggitt would probably be our most established older players.

Marlin Lane probably on offense.

You would think as a SC fan you'd remember Marquez North !

The meltdown...if we should lose that game, would be something of epic proportions.

All Cock fans stayed tuned on Volnation and on this site late that Sunday evening. Cause it won't be pretty if we lose.

It never ceases to amaze me the amount of damage Tennessee did to itself with the way they handled the Fulmer situation and the Kiffen hire.

That's like asking if SC would ever win again during that 21 game losing streak. D'uh.

Marquez North looks like he is going to be a monster and newcomers Josh Malone and Von Pearson look to be the real deal (Malone had 3 TD's in the spring game). Add them to Jason Croom and the rest of our WR's and we should have a great group there.

Jalen Hurd and Marlin Lane look to be able to handle the ground game and our two freshen top rated TE's came in ready to play. The Oline has the talent to be good but has hardly any experience and no cohesion as a unit yet. it hink we will be better here than many would expect.

The big Q on O is QB. Worely, Ferguson and Dobbs all still look to have a shot at the job. Worely doesn't make mistakes, has improved his accuracy and arm strength, obviously still has his limitations. Ferguson is Bray Jr. tons of talent but makes the bonehead throw way too often. Dobbs is steady and improving and has a great running threat.

Our Dline looks to be the biggest concern on the team. Not a ton of depth here of talent and we look like we will have to rely on some freshman coming in this summer. This scares me.

LB unit looks very good and secondary should be improved, but not amazing by any means. Overall I think our D improves but not by a huge amount.

So if you are still with me can TN win 6 games this fall?

Utah St - Could lose which would be terrible, but if we come ready to play at home should be a W

Ark St - Same as above but should be a W

@Oklahoma - Why are we doing this to ourselves right now? Big L

BYE

@UGA - We seem to always play them close but don't see us stopping Gurley. 10 Pt L.

UF - One of the biggest games of the season, true toss up and will depend on if Bama destroys UF the week before our game and has them reeling or not. Toss Up

Chattanooga - Thank God an easy one W

@Ole Miss - Actually forgot about this game. Not sure what to expect here. But since it is on the road I will say close L.

Bama - That was short lived Big L

@USC - Payback should likely be in the minds of SC. Should be competitive for a while then SC blows it open in the 2nd half 14pt L

Bye

Missouri - Bye comes at a good time as this is our second big toss up game. Missouri lost 15 starters and I am not expecting a lot of them this year. This game is at home and we will be coming off a bye with a bowl game still in play. Can we pull it out? Toss Up

Kentucky - Should be able to win this one at home with a bowl game hopefully still in sight if we could have won one of UF or Missouri W

@Vandy - I believe Vandy takes a big tumble this year. This being on the road isn't a problem either as we always put about 60% of the stadium in Orange. We will have improved a lot over the year with our young talent playing. I give us the W

So by my estimations we have 5 W's and 5 L's with two toss ups. Can we win either of the two Cock friends? Make me excited for the fall!

Sadly for you, the big holes are at the worst spots: QB, OL and DL. Those positions are critical to succeeding over a full season. If it starts badly and you lose to UF it could start a snowball, resulting in losses to Mizzou and possibly Vandy. I think 4 wins is likely.
