The Tennessee Volunteers 2014 offense is going to be young but very talented. Losing the entire offensive line and the primary running back isn't the best way to start an offseason, but that's the reality, and you won't hear Butch Jones using it as an excuse.
It's time to take an early look at the two-deep depth chart.
This fall could be as tough as 2013. Tennessee is looking at five to seven wins, the latter of which would make the 2014 campaign a success. The Vols are 16 years removed from 1998. The incoming freshmen were two years old when Tennessee won the national championship. Lamenting the fact that a bowl trip would make this season a success is living in the past and failing to see reality.
Luckily, Tennessee has the right guy at the helm to return the program to its winning ways. His offense will go through growing pains, but you'll see flashes of brilliance from the talent on the field.
