Gave you a like for the majority of this post....it’s both good and somewhat poetic. Gonna disagree on the UF sentiment however.....we have a better chance of beating both Clemson and Alabama simultaneously, 22 on 11, than we do of beating UF in the Swamp, in Neyland stadium or at the SuperBowl.

Tbh it's kinda hard for me to keep up with teams other than the Vols during the offseason. I appreciate when fans from other teams give us the low-down, for better or worse. Of course I want us to win more than we did last year, but man beating the Gators and UGA would be sweet this year.

Thanks for the post. To hell with Georgia! Go Vols!
Are you really in japan and where?

Hello all, I lurk around the message boards of many teams. It helps me get better news and alternative perspectives on the recruiting trail, fans thoughts, etc. I love college football and I try to look at it from all angles

I am a GA alumni and fan. I am also a little bored this evening and felt like laying out a few thoughts for you all.

I truly think that UT finishes 2nd or 3rd this year in the east. Yes, I do think that UGA finishes first. I think that UT has the weapons to upset some people. Many other teams will undergo a lot of rebuilding over the next season while UT has virtually no turnover of players from 2018 to 2019. Given lack of turnover of players, a better offensive coordinator, and a second year with the coaching staff implementing their systems then one would only think there would be improvement, right??

I do not think many would disagree that UT should pick up an additional 2 wins over last season with the potential of picking up an additional 4 wins from last year.

UF is losing 4 out of 5 of their starting offensive lineman from 2018. They lose their leaders on defense as well. They do not yet have the depth to truly stack the team back up

Nearly all of Vanderbilts defense graduates

Kentucky has 12 starters leaving their team and 3 of them should be drafted in the first 3 rounds

Missouri has 10 starters leaving their team and 2 should be drafted in the first 3 rounds

GA State -W
BYU -W
Chat -W
UF - L (I think this will be a close loss and I give Florida the edge only because UT is playing away)
UGA - L (given the bye week, pruitt and kirbys hostility, playing at UT and Chaney trying to prove himself.... I could see this going bad for us. I think that UT leads for some of the game, but GA has more talent and more depth on the field which helps them close it out in the 4th quarter)
MS State - W
Alabama - L
USCjr. - W
UAB - W
KY - W
Missouri - W
Vanderbilt-W

Final, 9-3

Floor of 7 wins, ceiling of 10 wins.

Good luck this year. I hope you beat the gators, but lose to UGA and close out with 10 wins.

It is a very interesting year in the East (after UGA). UGA has far more talent than the rest of the division and should win the East.

Florida gets Auburn and LSU back to back, along with MIAMI to start the season.

USCe has a really interesting schedule with Alabama, A&M, Clemson and they get Tennesse after playing UGA and Florida back to back. Vols should have a good shot here.

KY gets Miss St and Arkansas from the West, and have an easy schedule, but they lost a lot.

Mizzou packed their schedule with cupcakes (Wyoming, WVU, SE Missouri and Troy) and they have Ole Miss and Arkansas from the West, so they should have a good record.

If the Vols could pull out a win against UF, not out of the question for the Vols to finish second or third in the division.

I agree with you I think Tennessee goes 9-3 losing to Florida,Georgia and Alabama. I think Tennessee will spend New Years in Tampa playing in the Outback Bowl against Michigan State,Iowa or Penn State.

Florida’s roster-wide depth is the best it has been in a decade. Absolutely loaded at WR, TE, RB, DL, LB and the secondary will be ridiculously good. Even the QB position is three-deep; Franks, Trask and Emory Jones. UF lost Polite and Chauncey Gardner on defense, but bring back about 15 guys who have played a ton. So, “they lost their leaders on defense” is wrong. The only spot of concern for UF is o-line, but even that is overblown by hopeful rival fans. UF did lose 4 2018 starters but they bring back Heggie who had numerous starts in 2017 and Stone Forsyth and Chris Bleich, both of whom played in double-digit games last year. Jean Delance will start at right Tackle and he played in games as a true freshman for Texas in 2017 before transferring. Nick Buchanan also returns, he started every game at Center last year. So the o-line will certainly need time to gel, but it’s not like they’ve got 5 inexperienced stiffs they’ll be trotting out. I will admit that if they have any key injuries here, they’ll be relying on some very young and inexperienced guys to step in. Make no mistake about it, Florida is coming after Georgia this year. See y’all in Jacksonville, the winner will be in Atlanta.
