Tennessee has real momentum this spring

A snippet....

But if you really dive into what Jones said on Monday and take a look at what this program has been doing since the end of last season, you can't really argue with the man. Jones might not approach the whole how-to-send-a-message thing well at times, but even in his most monotone delivery he makes his point about how Tennessee seriously does have real momentum in 2017 and he's got the facts to back it up.

"When you look at the NFL draft with the six drafted players and the numerous free-agent signings, the 972 in the APR (Academic Progress Rate) -- that's what it's all about, is winning football games, graduating players and developing them to play at the next level," Jones said. "I think our program has a lot of momentum. It's a great challenge this offseason in terms of the summer then into fall camp with a very, very good Georgia Tech and the many challenges they will present, but I was pleased overall with the spring."

The author cites Jones on the 2017 NFL Draftees, improved APR, and the 2018 recruiting prospects in the article.

I'm not sure how any of those three items have any bearing on whether or not UT has 'momentum' going into the 2017 season.

Im not sure momentum is even a real thing is sports. A streak of good news means momentum? A few scores or wins in a row? Maybe it inspires confidence in players and fans but I don't think it has any bearing on future outcomes.

How is that a negative statement? Feel free to explain how any of those three items contribute to momentum going into the 2017 season.

Seems to be sounding a slight alarm bell for the Ga. Tech game....They really worry me on several levels. Least of which is not being use to the blocking coming from their type of running game. Must be able to watch all sides when running down ball carriers from one side of the field to the other. Big chance of getting hurt.

Said it before, saying it again the Vols will be better than anticipated.

If you don't believe momentum is real in sports, I question if you ever played a sport. It absolutely exists and can turn on a dime.

Seeing how far you can throw empty beer cans into your yard is not a sport?

I hope this carries into the fall KB!
