Butch Jones really blew it last year with a loaded squad and a weak SEC East.  How did the Volunteers not win the SEC East?  Georgia had a rookie coach in Kirby Smart.  South Carolina was a complete mess when Will Muschamp arrived.  Jim McElwain still hasn't found a quarterback with the Gators.  Missouri looks to be in for some difficult years for the foreseeable future with the mess Gary Pinkel left them in and Kentucky and Vanderbilt are historically irrelevant in SEC football.  After four seasons, Jones teams are inconsistent and lack attention to detail in big moments.  I expect more of the same this year.

 Rebound from what? They had a great year, capped with a bowl win.

Beg to differ sir.  They were 8-4 in the regular season and played in the Music City Bowl.  If you think Vols fans were happy with those results you are mistaken.

Tennessee was picked to win the SEC East and play for the championship.  Didn't happen...even Vanderbilt beat them.

Tennessee has a new Chancellor (Beverly Davenport) and just recently hired a new Athletic Director (John Currie).  Neither has any loyalty to coach Butch Jones and most AD's like to bring in their own coach.

If Butch Jones comes in with another 8-4 record, he will be history after five seasons.

I'd say they weren't loaded.  The numbers from 2015 suggested they overachieved compared to their stats.

My friend I don't like to be UGLY to anyone who loves CFB.  It's clear you need to do some research/homework because you don't have a bloody CLUE what you are TALKING about.
