Being a Tennessee alumni is usually a good deal. Right up until the football teams ends the season 5-7 and won’t play another game for nine months. But there is more hope going into this offseason then there was last year off season.
While there are some bright spots in the 5 wins it’s still a losing record. I know it was a ridiculously difficult schedule but next year isn’t going to be any better. Tennessee will open with Utah State who could win the Mountain West without their starting QB who will come back next year and could be a legit Heisman contender.
While I do not want to dampen the hope I have to be realistic. Coach Jones has got a long road in front of him. A six win season and a bowl game would be nice but this is Tennessee. We want championships.
