The Tennessee Football program has been in peril since 2008.
The team was bad, the coaching was bad, and the recruiting was abysmal that year. UT made stride in 2009 when outsider Lane Kiffin took over and breathed new hope into the program. That is until he left them high and dry after one season for his “dream job.”
That left Tennessee down and all but out.
Since then, Derek Dooley has been trying to put all the pieces back together. He has created the “Vol For Life program” in an attempt to change the culture for the better. He pulled in a top 15 recruiting class for the second straight season. He has a great staff full of potential to be extraordinary coaches. Dooley now has experience and knowledge of the SEC.
Everything is in place for Tennessee to break out and have a great year.
Here are the top 10 reasons they have at least 10 wins this year.
