It's going to be one of these 5 options.  What do you think?

6-4.
Too tough a schedule against five top 15 teams.
I think we pull one upset, but that's it.
We win against who we're supposed to beat and lose to those ranked ahead of us barring one upset.

New schedule might leave Tennessee Vols fans asking: "Why does the SEC hate us?" | Adams

SNIP:


I'm not sure how the SEC decided on its revised schedule. Based on UT's draw, I'm guessing that the consensus was something like: "How about we really stick it to the Vols?"

UT, which finished 8-5 last season, already had three preseason top-10 teams from the SEC on its schedule — Alabama from the West, and Georgia and Florida from the East.

The conference has yet to announce the order of games. Based on Friday's scheduling announcement, UT fans probably are thinking the worst.

The worst would be: Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia and Texas A&M on consecutive Saturdays to open the season.

The West is tough. We have the toughest schedule of the few SEC teams I checked with 5 of top 13 in the country. We have an experienced and pretty deep OL and DL. The perceived weakness is ILB, Safety, QB, and receivers. I think the ILBs and Safety weakness is overstated. We brought a lot of speed in at receiver. It all hinges on Guarantano becoming what everybody thought he would be. This is the first year he has had the same OC and QB coach year to year. No spring practice means that Harrison Bailey will be brought along a little more slowly. Perhaps Mauer can figure out that consistency counts.

If Geronimo is still the starting QB I'm predicting 5-5 and not real sure about that.
If everyone is thinking alike then somebody isn't thinking.

It would have been better to have waited until after the schedule dates are firm before doing a poll.
