In the midst of this fairly brutal takedown of UT, John Adams notes this about the Vols’ likely 2013 road schedule:
… Although the 2013 SEC schedule hasn’t yet been set, you can assume it will include traditional West rival Alabama. You also can assume divisional opponents will continue to rotate venues on a yearly basis.
That means the Vols would be playing at Florida, Alabama and Missouri within the conference. They also will have a non-conference road game against Oregon, the week before they go to The Swamp.
Ouch. Even if SOD squeaks by with seven or eight wins this year, it’s hard to see how things get rosier after that.
