Tennessee have holes to fill

The Vols won the SEC East in 2004, losing to unbeaten Auburn in the SEC championship game. Things haven’t gone all that well since.

There was a 5-6 finish in 2005 before the Vols bounced back to win nine games in ’06 and 10 games and the East title in ’07. But that ’07 season saw the Vols lose by a combined 63 points to Alabama and Florida, which caused fans to start grumbling loudly about coach Phil Fulmer.
