Vols will go 2-10 this year.

Sep 5 W. Kentucky (win)
Sep 12 UCLA 4:00pm (loss)
Sep 19 @Florida 3:30pm (big loss LOL!!!)
Sep 26 Ohio (win)
Oct 3 Auburn (loss)
Oct 10 Georgia (loss)
Oct 24 @Alabama (loss - BIG TROUNCING WAITING TO HAPPEN)
Oct 31 South Carolina (loss)
Nov 7 Memphis (loss)
Nov 14 @Mississippi (loss)
Nov 21 Vanderbilt (loss)
Nov 28 @Kentucky (loss)

I predict Kiffin will be fired after a loss to Vanderbilt in front of the home crowd at old Rocky Flop, which will be just too embarrassing for the Tennessee Alumni, Boosters, and the A.D.

the vols will surprise this year. they are one of the few teams in the east that isn't hyped up. florida, georgia or ole miss will have a bad year and not live up to the hype. i think it'll be georgia. you have to be kidding me if you honestly think ut will only win 2 games. i say more realistically it will be 7-4 or possibly 8-3, with the auburn game being the wild card.

i know, i didn't specify that i was only talking about the regular season. it's hard to predict games if you don't know who's playing in them. that and my math sucks. haha. 7-5 or 8-4. ;)

I LOL at people who go to a Directional School and or Community College hating on Tennessee.
who goes to a direction school or community college?

Losing to Vandy? Really? Not sure about that one. Damn, I can't wait for September.
Alabama said the same thing 2 years ago, and they got rick rolled by Louisiana Monroe.

are you joking? Look at what Rich Rodriguez did with Michigan last year, do you really think Kiffin is just going to come in and strike gold his first year? Not happening. If the guy were Urban Meyer caliber, then yes maybe.

and if you think Florida is having a bad year this year, you don't know much about college football.

michigan was a lot worse off when rich rodriguez took over than what kiffin is getting. i'm not saying he's going to burn a path down to atlanta like gen. sherman, but i bet it'll go a lot better than only 2 wins.

and i never said florida will have a bad year, i'm just saying they have a TON of hype to live up to. then i finished that statement off with georgia probably being the one to fall a bit.

yes I'm pretty sure you did say they will have a bad year. see your quote above.

but in all honesty, when new head coaches come in they traditionally don't have good first or second years. Even the Almighty Nick Saban had a 6-6 year his first year at Alabama, and they lost to Louisiana Monroe, a team they never lose to.

but I look at Kiffin's level of experience when I say the Vols go 2-12.

He did poorly at the Raiders, and he has no previous head coaching experience prior to the Raiders job...he was only an offensive coordinator for the USC Trojans, in a system riddled with talent and top of the line blue chip players at his disposal.

realistically, I think you can expect 3-9, 4-8, but anything over that, I think you're grabbing at straws and having wishful thinking.

not re-reading what i typed ftl :( haha. i don't really think florida will have a bad year though. will all they have, it will be very hard to have a bad year. but with that being said, there is a ton of pressure that may prove tough to take. i just hope to god nobody makes tebow promise again, that kid is money.

and i will admit that kiffin is lacking in the experience column. that's just fact. i still think he'll be better than what fulmer had been doing recently. don't get me wrong, i love fulmer and he was a great coach, but it just seemed like he lost the fire and discipline he needed to return to greatness. that and the sec is truly a murderers row now.

Wyatt has a good point - don't expect a solid year, Vols, you're going to get heartbroken... its just the nature of things... he needs time to work himself in, and the SEC is brutal...

As far as watching sports goes, college level sports IMHO are much more fun to keep up with.

Well I don't profess to know anything about UT football........other than the fact that I did both my Undergrad and Grad school at UT. Marched in the Band at UT for 5 years....and I have been at EVERY SINGLE GAME UT has played(home road and bowl) since 1995. That being said no I don't think we will finish better than 4th in the SEC East but I also say there is NO way this club wins only 2 games.

Sep 5 W. Kentucky (win)

Sep 12 UCLA 4:00pm (win) This game is in Knoxville, and the game last year went into OT. The only reason we lost this game was the fact that we gave up on the running game. We gave up on the Run game because our O-Line had not bought into David Clawsen's crazy Zone Blocking scheme where the tackles and guards swapped sides of the ball depending on the way the play was called to be ran. If you have ever played a down of football.....esp on the line you know how hard that is....hell PRO teams don't even do that stuff.

Sep 19 @Florida 3:30pm (big loss LOL!!!) I agree. It's at the Swamp and I think the Gaytors could beat the NFL Pro Bowl team this year.

Sep 26 Ohio (win)

Oct 3 Auburn (Win)This game was so close last year it wasn't funny. We lost this game exactly the same way and for exactly the same reason as the UCLA game.

Oct 10 Georgia (Toss Up) The Neyland Factor will play a big role here....esp since they will be bringing a new QB to his First big time Road game. Tennessee always has played Ga well and beat them many times when they "had no chance" to win.

Oct 24 @Alabama (loss) General Neyland's ghost couldn't even help us here

Oct 31 South Carolina (Win)The only way SC beat us is beacuse of Spurrior's intimidation of Phil Fulmer. Well Fulmer is gone and Kiff isn't scared at all of Stevie.

Nov 7 Memphis (WIN) You have got to be smoking something other than the normal pole you smoke if you think Tiger High is going to win at Neyland. The only time they have even been in the ball game was 1996.

Nov 14 @Mississippi (loss) Ole Miss is going to be tough this year.....They are my pick to win the West.

Nov 21 Vanderbilt (loss) No way Vandy wins this year....look at what happened last year and there is NO WAY this team is going to be worse than last years team. We could just put Bryice Brown in the backfield and run the ball down Vandy's throught

Nov 28 @Kentucky (WIN) You weren't even alive the last time KY beat Tennessee. Hell I was only 4. KY is weak this year in the Defensive front 7....see game plan above.

So even if we do lose the two toss up games we are still 7 and 5.....6 and 6 if you really think USC will win......and after last year with all the changes I think 7 and 5 or 6 and 6 is a good year and anything more than that shows that Kiffen is in fact a miricale worker.

lol, it's all good man, just had to point it out.

well if the Vols Alumni, boosters, and AD can put up with a rough season and they don't run him after year 1, then I think he can and will improve the team over the next couple years, but he's not off to a good start by running his mouth at Urban Meyer making accusations like he did back in April, and Kiffin needs to learn when to speak and when to shut up.

There's also the recruiting factor. Players always look good on paper, but how will that actually translate to production and wins on the field? that remains to be seen.

gonna be a long year, for Vols and Titans fans alike.

but the future for Vols fans could be good if Kiffin actually turns out on the upside of things.
