It's Unofficially Football Time In Tennessee....

Now that the SEC Media Days has come and gone I think it's time to talk expectations and predictions for the upcoming seasons. I may not get to all of my predictions in this blog but I will try. This is off the top of my head more or less.

First off to our beloved Vols. I know Tony has said he doesn't have expectations and a lot of people are the same way. Let's face it though. This is Tennessee. The way I look at it anything less than 8 wins in any year is a disappointment. Unfortunately this year looks to be a disappointment. Let's be fair though. Dooley inhereted this mess. Nick Saban would probabaly do good to win 8 games with this team. So granted that this year is almost certainly going to be substandard, this is what I want to see out of Tennessee this year. I want to see them put away inferior opponents and not let them hang around. I want to see them play hard. I don't want to see stupid penalties. I want to see them get better as the season goes on. I want to pull at least one upset. I want to get to a bowl. I absolutely DO NOT want to lose to Kentucky or Vandy under any circumstance. I think this team can go 7-5 and that is my prediction for the year. They could just as easily go 5-7 so I hope we have luck on our side. Maybe the most important thing I want to see out of the Vols is that they play with pride. They have had to hear all off season how bad they are going to be. I want to see them come out with a chip on their shoulder and prove a lot of people wrong.

Now for a few predictions.

For the 4th year in a row, South Carolina's "breakthrough season" will once again end in mediocrity and disappointment.

Oregon will lose at least 4 games as their team chemistry is decimated by off-field drama.

Ohio State will probably make it to the BCS Title game only to be humiliated once again.

Texas will take a step back and the Big 12 will come down to Oklahoma and Nebraska.

Florida State, Miami, and Virginia Tech all improve and make the ACC much better this year. Jacori Harris and Christian Ponder make strong pushes for the Heisman.

USC will lose 3 close games and Kiffin parlays that into a sales pitch to land a job as the head coach for the Giants.

Washington will be a surprise team this year and make a push for the Rose Bowl.

Boise State goes undefeated but still gets shut out of the BCS Title game, strengthening outcry for a playoff.

Michigan has a big year and suddenly Rich Rod is the most popular man in Ann Arbor.

Brian Kelly wins at least 9 games at Notre Dame.

Auburn fans will be disappointed when their record is similar to last years.

Georgia improves by maybe a game but their fans are still unhappy.

Florida gets upset at least once and maybe twice, sparking many sleepless nights for Urban Meyer on the phone with Tim Tebow.

And finally, for now anyway, Alabama becomes the first team since Tennessee to win the SEC in back to back years.

Things should be getting fun very soon as fall camp begins in a few weeks. I can't wait to hear how the incoming freshmen do. Hopefully the bar incident will be cleared up soon too so the focus can be purely on football.
