With the calendar flipped to 2014 and this year's recruiting cycle wrapped up, Tennessee head football coach Butch Jones and his staff have directed their attention to spring practice.
For Jones, this year's 15 practices—slated to begin March 7 and culminating with the Orange and White Game on April 12—are vital to this program taking the next step. In order for an incredibly youthful Volunteers team to make a bowl game in 2014, several things need to occur.
From questions at quarterback to revamping several positions from scratch, the Vols have to break some serious ground in Jones' reconstruction process.
There is plenty for Jones to worry about, but the best news for Tennessee is every Vols scholarship quarterback already is on campus and UT welcomed 14 early enrollees who should provide an injection of serious talent into a program needing it.
Let's take a look at six major projects on Jones' to-do list once spring practice kicks off in less than a month.
