First chance I've had to reply since I posted this morning, but here it goes...
I don't feel sorry for UT at all. I don't think Butch Jones REALLY knew what he was getting in to when he took the job though. Even the back half of their schedule (Mizzou, Auburn, Vandy, and Kentucky) will be tough on them. Remember this: They are losing almost the entirety of their offense (Bray, Hunter, Patterson, and Zach Rogers), plus had one of the worst defenses in the nation (107 in total defense). The coach they brought in is an offensive minded guy...not a good combo. I think they, at best, win 6 games... I look for them to go 4-8 in all reality. Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch...
On the flip side of that, I think we have arguably our easiest schedule since CNS has been at Alabama. Toughest games should be aTm, Ole Miss, and LSU... Though I think LSU will be down this year, and Mississippi won't be quite ready yet... Getting the Aggies in week 3, after a bye (plus having the bye before LSU to get healthy down the stretch), stacks up well. Our schedule is very reminiscent of Auburn's in 2010...it seemed built to make a run.

Wow! One of the hardest schedules I've seen in a long time.
