And now for the fun part: There’s a reason we wait til Mondays on these things: not too high, not too low, etc. But I’m very curious to see where our community will land after Saturday’s beat down. In addition, our next two opponents didn’t exactly cover themselves in glory. […]

It’s early, but these Vols are playing at a higher level than we’ve seen for much of this attempted rebuild.
Context is king, but it’s hard to find after this one my friends.
Our community expected win total lands at 5.92 this week. Through four weeks of the season, Tennessee has been incredibly steady as it relates to expectations. The biggest difference we’ve seen in expected win totals was losing a 50/50 game to Pittsburgh: In our three games vs FBS competition, the […]
The thing Tennessee was worst at last season was allowing opposing quarterbacks to complete 68.2% of their passes, 125th of 127 teams that played.

Two years ago this week, the Vols headed to Gainesville after losing to Georgia State and BYU. In the middle of that week, it looked like the line in Vegas might become the second-worst of the then 30 years Tennessee and Florida had met consecutively. It settled at +12.5 by […]
Here’s where we’ve stood heading into the first three Saturdays of the year in expected win totals: Week 1: 6.74 wins Week 2: 6.60 Week 3: 5.94 The Vols had no problem with Tennessee Tech, but are still more of a mystery than we were counting on after three weeks. […]
