Tennessee Football's New Motivational Theme Is ’25 Points’
Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports
The Tennessee football team is rallying around "25 Points" as new motivation going into the 2016 season. Why "25 Points" you may ask? Well...


The Vols' last five losses, going back to November 22, 2014...

Alabama 19 – Tennessee 14
Arkansas 24 – Tennessee 20
Florida 28 – Tennessee 27
Oklahoma 31 – Tennessee 24
Missouri 29 – Tennessee 21

Whatever it takes, I guess.

25 points. 50 first dates. Whichever. They're not getting lucky either way, it seems.

I think that's the entire point. If you're that close, it's time to start getting lucky.

I think the significance of the "last 5 losses" thing is that the 2014 South Carolina game (aka when the referenced 13-5 stretch started) is when Josh Dobbs took over and it truly became his team. We were a vastly different team previous to that, with Justin Worley under center.

IOW, that's the turning point when the team started to look less like a team of Dooley holdovers and more like the team we are now, and since then UT has played a lot better overall.

Why not 20 games, "70 PTS" didn't seem to have the same luster?

Let's just go all time while we're at it. 3042 points, why not?

They should have with 20. As in games in a row lost to Bama and Florida. If that doesn't motivate them, nothing will.
