To me Tennessee fans have became insane.  

Why?


Well I love to roam on message boards, I like to see what the other SEC fans are thinking on how their team will be next year. What I saw shocked me, especially from Tennessee fans. 

Tennessee fans think they have a legitimate shot of beating Kentucky, of course miracles happen and I believe in miracles, but come on! They got blown out last year by 20 points,  even with a more talented team.

Kentucky has three lottery picks in next year's draft and will absolutely slaughter the majority of the SEC teams this year. 

To just be on the real, Tennessee you're good enough to come in second in the standings, but you are far far from being first.
