Expectations for the Tennessee Volunteers were low in 2010, so low in fact that Vegas books actually had the stricken Vols finishing last in the SEC...even behind Vanderbilt.
But alas, that was not the case. Not only did the Vols not finish last, they tied for third with Georgia in the SEC East, and they went to a bowl game. On the whole, breaking even with six wins and six losses in regular season is always better than losing one. However, 2011 isn't last year. Head coach Derek Dooley says "...this is year one, last year was year zero."
With this mentality it suggests many things that can be construed negatively and positively, the problem is understanding what's feasible and what isn't. Dooley may think this is year one, but a few Vols may see it otherwise. So...what should Vols expect from Coach Dooley in 2011?
