Tennessee Vols Football Getting No Respect; Do They Deserve Any?

Article By on 10th August, 2009

... Tennessee ranked anywhere from 40th to 30th in the country. In my humble opinion that is well deserved after last season’s 5-7 finish.  

However, the Vols received one ranking last week that I thought was quite ridiculous and disrespectful. In the preseason USA Today/Coaches' Top 25, Tennessee ended up with two votes, placing them 56th in the country.

Among the teams receiving more votes was UCLA who was 4-8 in ’08; Auburn who finished 5-7 and barely beat Tennessee on their own home field; and Kentucky, whom Tennessee played their best game of ’08 against. Tennessee’s two votes were one more than Michigan (3-9 in ’08) received.
