A mediocre game filled with mediocre moments and mediocre play was enough for Tennessee to defeat the Wisconsin in a mostly mediocre bowl game. With most of its offensive coaches in a lame duck session (David Cutcliffe, Trooper Taylor, and others are all departing for more senior positions), the Vols did well to fend off a scrappy Badger offense to win their first bowl game in three years.
So against all odds, Tennessee finishes 10-4, so I’ll gladly tip my hat to a team which turned an abysmal beginning into a non-embarrassing season. It’s certainly better than anyone expected. On the slate for 2008:
- Find some offensive coaches
- Find a new quarterback
- Last but not least, BEAT FLORIDA
Here’s to a hopeful hibernation for the Vols!
