Let's predict the record for Tennessee in 2022

There seems to be a decent amount of hype around Tennessee for the 2022 football season, so let's dive in and take a look see at what all the hubub is about.

Tennessee in 2021 finished the season 7-6 and unranked in either poll.

2021 Schedule
vs Bowling Green 38-6 W
vs Pittsburgh 41-34 L
vs Tennessee Tech 56-0 W
@ Florida 38-14 L
@ Missouri 62-24 W
vs Carolina 45-42 W
vs Ole Miss 31-26 L
@ Alabama 52-24 L
@ Kentucky 45-42 W
vs Georgia 41-17 L
vs South Alabama 60-14 W
vs Vanderbilt 45-21 W

2022 Schedule
vs Ball State
@ Pittsburgh
vs Akron
vs Florida
@ LSU
vs Alabama
vs UT Martin
vs Kentucky
@ Georgia
vs Missouri
@ Carolina
@ Vanderbilt

So I am looking at the pretty much sure things and you have 3 wins and 2 losses that I think we can pencil in with Ball State, Akron and UT Martin as the wins and Alabama and Georgia as the losses.

So that leaves a whole bunch of toss up games.
@ Pitt
vs Fla
@ LSU
vs UK
vs Miz
@ SC
@ Van

If you can go 4-3 against these teams that will put you at 7-5 for the season. 5-2 would bump you to 8-4.

I am not sure I see Tennessee going better than 5-2 in these toss up games. 8-4 would be a good season for the Vols.

What sez the Rant?

I'll say 8-4 headed to bowl game. Great season for Tenner.

First of all, at such a chump non-conference schedule. Ball State, Akron, Pittsburg, and UT Martin? Geez, nothing screams "We're back" like that murderer's row. The bad part is, Pittsburg being good right now is a pure accident. This was meant to be 4 cupcakes, but I digress.


2022 Schedule
vs Ball State W
@ Pittsburgh L (on the road, not happening)
vs Akron W
vs Florida W (pure toss up, but Napier seems over his head ATM)
@ LSU L
vs Alabama L
vs UT Martin W
vs Kentucky W (only b/c it's at home. could easily be a loss though)
@ Georgia LOL
vs Missouri W
@ Carolina L (road game, and Beamer has SC improving)
@ Vanderbilt W

So, there you have it. 7-5, with 2 of their 7 wins coming against teams with a pulse. THEY'RE BACK BABY!!!

Tennessee actually never won the Fulmer Cup...unlike:

Bama (2008)
Georgia (2010)
Auburn (2011)
Arkansas (2012)
Vandy (2013)

Would be disappointed with with 7 or less but would be pumped with 10+. I’d say 8-4 would be a fair prediction, obviously I’m hoping for more.
