Positionally Tennessee is the hardest hit program in the SEC in football. Looking at the roster/ depth chart according to rivals.com the UT program is losing 28 players from last year's roster. The hardest hit positions are QB, RB, TE, OT, OG, LB, and DT. At those positions they lose at last 2 players out the three deep chart. Most notable loses are Berry and Crompton. Crompton is unavoidable and so most likely is Berry but the loses to the offensive and defensive lines are severe. Tennessee is a storied program but when you lose essentially your entire offensive and defensive lines any football team is going to take a hit. 2010 looks like a loosing season for the vols unless Dooley coaches them up to play harder then anyone in the SEC.
