The time has finally come.
Football officially begins this Friday night for the University of Tennessee, which means that no longer are we forced to talk about “what ifs” and the potential good or bad for the upcoming season.
The offseason brought about many ups and downs for the Vols. According to head coach Derek Dooley, this is the best team in Knoxville during his three years at the helm. However, the recent news of Da’Rick Rogers leaving the program has put a small damper on some spirits.
Come Friday night, it will be time to put up or shut up for Dooley and the Vols, and the opening game with North Carolina State will set the tone for the 2012 season.
Here’s a look at the final depth chart for game one.
