Tennessee football had a lot more positives coming out of their win over East Tennessee State. But will they last? Here are the Volunteers’ stock report.
Looking better against an FCS school than you did against a Top 20 team with a Heisman caliber candidate isn’t saying much. Tennessee football should have beaten the ETSU Buccaneers, and that’s exactly what they did.
A 59-3 win over this team is going to do very little to quell any concerns, or show any positives, related to the Vols. The Bucs aren’t yet even a good program by FCS standards, as former UT offensive coordinator Randy Sanders is still working to rebuild the program.
However, Tennessee football’s win does reveal a few consistent themes now that we can gauge after two weeks. And heading into Week 3 against the UTEP Miners, the Vols have some things working in their favor that are very clear.
In this post, we’re going to break down those things. As we noted last week, the stock report on the Vols can include anything, from coaching to units to individuals. It all depends on how things have been trending in recent weeks.
We’ll take a look at who’s in good standing right now along with in poor standing. But we’ll also make projections on how things are set to go. Nothing is likely to change too much with possibly the worst team in FBS coming to town this week. But that’s a chance to get out ahead of things.
So with conference play still two games away, what are the biggest positives facing the Vols right now? What is bringing out the biggest concern? Find out here with our Tennessee football stock report after their first win of the season.
