Man, Pete Fiutak really piles it on here:
You ready for pain? Since 2008, Tennessee has as many bowl wins as Vanderbilt.
And it gets worse.
After last week’s loss to BYU, Tennessee has gone 9-17 since opening up the 2017 season with a thrilling win over Georgia Tech. Over that time, the Vols have a grand total of two wins over Power Five programs.
And it gets even worse than that.
Even with the losses to Georgia State and BYU, Tennessee barely gets on the radar to be among the nation’s biggest early disappointments, mainly because no one really expected anything in the first place.
Not that he’s wrong about any of that.
