Will any of these Tennessee Football records realistically ever be broken?

Yes. Guessing most of the passing ones will, since the game is evolving more in that direction every year. And Henry’s career rushing yard record isn’t really that impressive of a number. One would think UT would have someone with 4,000 yards at this point. Hurd would have if he’d stayed 4 years.
Tennessee has always had multiple backs to share the load. One year they had a 1000yd rusher, 2 with 700+ and yet another with over 500.

For the record, I'd say Kelsey Finch's 99 yd TD against The Gators will stand forever. :p

Why not? Because some of those records require 4 years of game experience and the players also need to be very talented. Talented players [as a rule] do not stay 4 years anymore!
That's valid. The way the rules are favoring the offense. I can see some things being accomplished in three years that used to take four years.

If we can convince good players to stay here as 4 year starters, a lot of records can be broken.

Shutouts per season and tackles are gonna be tough to break though!

Hurd easily had the rushing record broken until he went Rogue and broke away from lyle. If Kamara had started here for 3 years, he would have shattered a few records as well. Evan Berry minus injury had the return record easily within sights ( that one will be tough now due to rule changes for KOs ).

Yea we had alot of guys that could be the rushing leader. Most of them were stacked on top of each other. You have to be the feature back for 3 years to do it.

Of course Finch's 99 yd run wont be broken so I think the tackles records would be the hardest to break nowadays with the way the rules set up for the offense and teams seem to not run as much anymore. Records are meant to be broken tho so who knows,,,,,,,

I could see single game or single season being broken but not many career possibilities since the great players seldom stay 4 years any more.
