Music City Bowl 2010: Will Tennessee Ever Get Back to SEC Prominence?

Tennessee has had a few rough years.  The once dominant SEC program is now faced with winning or facing its first below .500 season since 2008.

Last season the Volunteers finished 7-6 and were expected to do great things in the future under Lane Kiffin.  When Kiffin left for the University of Southern California this summer, all of that changed.  They were left without a coach and with their future looking bleak. 

Tennessee enters the Music City Bowl with a record of 6-6 and will face the 7-6 North Carolina Tar Heels.

That leaves us the question, "Will Tennessee ever get back to SEC prominence?"
