I know the bowl selection changes this year but that would probably get you to like the B-ham Bowl or Liberty Bowl.

E-Vol: replacing both lines.... That is crazy... If the lines come together fairly quickly, 7 wins is possible... The Florida, Mizzou and Vandy games determine if y'all go anywhere from 4-8 to 7-5

DL I'm pretty sure is going to be a problem all year.
Both QB and Olines are questions, that is why I called them holes. Sure they may pan out, but they are just as likely to flounder. For projecting your season, all I am saying is your question marks are at the worst spots: QB, OL and DL.

We played that game in 2013 the way y'all played against us in 2005. Clearly the better team, but couldn't get out of our own way. Credit to UT for hanging tough and capitalizing on our mistakes. I'll be interested to see how we match up with the likes of your talented wide receivers. I feel like we should beat UT this yet, but one never knows.

7-5 is what I predict.

It's hard to win in the SEC with 85 freshmen.

On a flight now with Zach Azzanni - think he is head of recruiting at UTenn. Told him we have some payback coming his way.

Agree with @uscgamecocks88, although I think they beat Mizzou at home.

Unfortunately for SC, fortunately for UT, our game last year has given you guys some hope. I can 6-6, 7-5 at best if the ball bounces your way.

3 OOC wins...
UK, Vandy - wins...


I could see defintely 1, maybe 2 from these 3:
OU..I dunno I am not sold on OU, I could see a shocker here even if it is in Norman. But OU really should win
Ole Miss - they are this sexy, trendy team...who will win 7 games
Missou - matty mauk, I think they are an 80s one hit wonder bad.

HOWEVER, if the vols end up 4-8 with a season ending loss to the 'dores, will Butch be granted another year??? After all, the vols are replacing both lines!!! Maybe that fact will buy him some ice packs to sit on while in the hot seat!!

He would get another year 100% but year 3 wouldn't be pleasant like it is right now.

He probably needs to go 6-6 to not feel any pressure going into year 3.

I think a bowl is possible but not likely. Regardless of what happens, Butch will get another year. Like AN alluded to, UT is losing some guys but also has 75 freshmen. You need to give those kids time to develop.

Some great quotes from Pete Roussel's trip to several football programs recently (free read from CoachingSearch). Here's the ones about Tennessee:
http://coachingsearch.247sports.com/...-tour-28381614

Quote:
In two years, Butch Jones has completely changed the Tennessee football facility.
I visited Knoxville shortly after Butch Jones accepted the job two years ago and I left hardly impressed by the décor and interior design of the football facility. In fact, though some parts of the new facility were not yet finished at the time, parts that were completed left much to be desired. Last week, I was unbelievably impressed. There is a ‘wow’ factor everywhere you turn in the facility. Tennessee director of football operations Chris Spognardi, an extremely sharp individual who has worked alongside Butch Jones for the last seven years, said that Jones never stops thinking about facility enhancements that appeal to high school recruits. Even more importantly, he wants the UT football facility to be different. I agree: You can’t just do what everyone else is doing and try to do a little bit better. That’s wasting time. The latest project is coming this summer when a “Rockefeller Center” type of media center is constructed inside the Tennessee football facility.

Did that really just happen?
Butch Jones greets me by saying, “Pete, I’m Butch Jones. Really glad you’re here. I love your website, check it all the time. I love what you do and what you stand for.” It’s amazing how the smallest things go a long way. In addition, I sat with Jones in his office for 35-40 minutes, pardon the interruption by Dave Hart to introduce Jones to the Vols new head basketball coach Donnie Tyndall, and Jones proceeded to ask me 8-10 questions about my perspective from covering coaches and walking through facilities over the last six years. In doing so, he took two pages of notes. For me, it was an honor. But what got me really fired up was that just as any great leader, Jones was thirsty for information, anything to gain a competitive edge for Tennessee. Sleep easy, Knoxville. You’ve got a real leader now.
