The 2017 season marks the first time in school history the Vols have been winless in the SEC.  Finishing the year 0-8 in the division, the Vols have a lot of work to do this off season.

Even after a season all Vols fans want to forget, Tennessee is a quality program that will bounce back quickly.  The Vols have the talent on the team but have had an absence of leadership the entire year.

With the right hire for the  head coaching position, this team could easily be the most improved team for 2018.  While there are great things to come from the Vols, Vanderbilt takes this one home by a land slide.
