Many are impatient, including myself, for what awaits Tennessee's defense.
Justin Wilcox has been caught in a bit of a tornado-like success in his short-lived college tenure. Rising from the ranks as a graduate assistant at Boise State to the LB coach at UCLA, he was quickly recognized for his ability to coach up players.
He turned UCLA's LB squad into All PAC-10 players then got the call to return to Boise State. Back at home, Wilcox helped turn the Broncos defensive squad into a defensive wrecking ball, where he utilized that good old swarm-to-the-ball philosophy to amass a 49-4 record over four seasons.
At the end of the last season, there were a few grumbles that wondered whether he could bring that championship flavor to Tennessee. If you are one of those doubters, then maybe after reading this, you will grumble a little less.
