We are less than two weeks away from the Tennessee Volunteers' first game of the 2012 season. It is officially time to get antsy and start talking to your neighbor (who's an Alabama fan again) about the upcoming year. So how will the Vols' season come out?
The high-powered offense is where it all starts for this year's team. Tennessee is built to score first, play pass defense and run the ball in the second half against an exhausted and loosened opposition. That works just fine for me since the Volunteers have as many as six future first-rounders starting on offense.
The defense has to stay healthy. The depth is only average at best, but the skill level of the starting unit, particular at linebacker, is very good. Assuming injuries aren't a killer like last year, this is how I see the 2012 season shaking out.
