The Tennessee Volunteers have gotten off to a “rocky” start this season. With two losses, the Vols face an up hill battle for the rest of the year.

The Vols have managed to record three wins so far this year.  Two of them were close games versus average teams.  There only dominant performance game against a mediocre Indiana State team.

Still remaining on the schedule are Alabama and Kentucky, two games they will almost certainly lose.  With these two losses, they must avoid defeat from three teams that have the potential to beat them- Vanderbilt, LSU, and South Carolina.

This can only mean trouble for the Vols and Butch Jones.  The Jones era began in 2013 resulting in two playoff appearances, both first round losses.

Jones best season records thus far is 9-4 from the last two years.  In each of these years, the regular season record was 9-3 which means this year will likely be Jones worst of all.

With all attention on Butch Jones this year and questions swirling, if the Vols end up with a five loss season it will be the end of Jones at Tennessee.

College Football is not like the NFL.  There is no draft, players are recruited.  Coaches must identify the best players for their team and convince them to play.  It is nearly impossible to get the best players when a program is on the decline.

Bringing in a new head coach is the only way to get their one players when a team did not do well the year before.  Knowing this makes this Jones future transparent.

Jones must finish the season with no more than three losses in the regular season to come back next year.  This task seems nearly impossible given the strength of schedule to come.

The Vols will likely finish the season 7-5 falling to Alabama, Kentucky, and one of the three average teams.  This will bring the exit of Butch Jones at the end of the year.
