Well they routinely beat one of the best programs in the state almost every year (Alcoa).
That counts for something.

However, they DO need to play a championship program out-of state to be seen with more national relevancy. Let them drive 6 hours to South Carolina and play Dutch Fork, or Hoover in Alabama.
Get with the rest of the times...
They do seem afraid to do that.
They won’t be seen as nationally relevant bc maryville would get their butts kicked.

We won't know until they try.
That's the point.

In this era of high school sports, you'd like to to see them at least try to venture out.

They could absolutely play with the majority or teams in the Carolinas, VA, and Kentucky. Most teams in Alabama or Mississippi too.
GA and FLA? Doubtful. Still would like to see them try.

The top teams in Carolinas and and Virginia would beat Maryville comfortably

Alex Golesh, Tennessee's offensive coordinator and tight ends coach, was in Nashville, Tenn., on Tuesday to check on one of the Vols' commitments, wide receiver Nate Spillman, and his younger brother, four-star Class of 2024 linebacker Edwin Spillman. Both of them are planning to return the favor by traveling to Knoxville again soon.

Edwin Spillman, a Top247 prospect from Nashville's Lipscomb Academy, told GoVols247 that he and his brother, who has been committed to Tennessee for more than two months, are scheduled to visit the Vols again May 28 for their Memorial Day weekend recruiting event that's expected to bring a number of high-priority targets to Knoxville. The younger Spillman said Golesh attended Lipscomb's "whole practice" Tuesday afternoon to see him and his older brother in action.

Tuesday's visit also allowed Golesh to check on two other Tennessee targets who play for the Mustangs: four-star Class of 2024 cornerback Kaleb Beasley and Class of 2025 offensive lineman Chauncey Gooden.

Edwin Spillman, a 6-foot-2, 221-pound sophomore, has been one of the Vols' top in-state targets in the 2024 class since getting a scholarship offer from them more than a year ago. He already has received offers from more than 15 schools, including Georgia, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Arkansas and Mississippi State.

He's ranked the No. 102 overall prospect and No. 10 linebacker in the 2024 class and the No. 2 sophomore from the state of Tennessee, according to the industry-generated 247Sports Composite. He's also a Top247 prospect in 247Sports' rankings, where he's the No. 1 player from Tennessee in the 2024 class.

Nate Spillman has been the lone wide receiver in Tennessee's 2023 class since announcing his commitment to the Vols on March 6. He chose them over offers from Arkansas State and Marshall, and he added an offer from Western Kentucky a little more than a week ago.

In the 247Sports Composite, the elder Spillman is ranked the No. 125 wide receiver in the 2023 class and the No. 36 junior from Tennessee.

Tennessee has continued to make Edwin Spillman a priority since landing his brother more than two months ago. After attending the Vols' junior day on March 5, when his brother informed Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel's staff of his decision, the younger Spillman said having a chance to join his brother in Knoxville would impact his recruitment.

“It’s definitely going to affect it, because my brother’s going to a school that’s also recruiting me, too, which is a big part,” Edwin Spillman said at the time. “It’d just be really cool just to get to play with him and just getting to be in the same college.”

Now that he has an opportunity to team up with his brother at a school he already likes, Spillman said it would “be tough not to do that.” The Vols have continued to impress him during each of his trips to Knoxville.

“I really just love everything about Tennessee — just, like, what they preach out and then also just how the coaches interact with the players,” the younger Spillman said in early March. “I just love everything about it. It’s a real cool environment.”

QB doesn't matter much when you always run. They lost their 2 D1 running backs and their star WR they used on sweeps and opened the run game up more
Yeah, but what im saying is they were state title contenders before any of those guys came there.
WR came from Ensworth, James from Brentwood.

There's still some names on their roster, and I wouldn't be surprised to see other transfer there.
They're very well coached. More so than those Tidewater teams in VA.

Yes but just because they are competing with Maryville in the state quarterfinals before that doesn't mean they would beat the top teams in Virginia
