Cincinnati vs. Tennessee Football: Will Bearcats Be Another Warmup for Vols?

"If what you did yesterday seems big, you haven't done anything today."         —Lou Holtz

I never really gave much thought to anything Lou Holtz said, primarily because he believes Notre Dame will win every game they play, secondly because he sounds like the Tasmanian Devil.

However, his quote seems prophetic considering the circumstances for the Vols this Saturday. The Bearcats are no longer led by Brian Kelly who coached their team to a record of 23-3 and two conference titles over two seasons before bolting for Notre Dame. Enter Butch Jones, who on his first outing squandered what little legacy was left behind and ended his first Bearcat campaign 4-8, and seventh out of eight teams.

But, don't get too happy. It seems Jones may have learned a thing or two after last season, and now seems to have a few things mapped out. The biggest question is whether or not Jones will use the Vols to make a statement, or if the Vols will skin the Bearcats as another warmup for a swim in the Swamp.

Whatever happens, Tennessee can't bank its win against Montana until the Bearcats have been dismantled, and in convincing fashion.
