It shouldn’t be the case but after the loss to number one ranked Alabama there are a few overreactions swirling around.

No one expected the Vols to beat Alabama. Honestly not too many people thought Tennessee could keep the game within 20 points. It was apparent within five minutes that the Tide was going to run away with a win like that have against every other opponent.

You can’t take much from this loss, Alabama is destroying every team on their schedule. There doesn’t appear to be a team in college football this season that will be able to give them a game. Alabama is 8-0 on the season and has scored at least 50 points in six games. The other two scoring outputs were 45 points against Texas A&M and 39 points against Missouri.

The Vols, on the other hand, are right where most people thought they would be sitting at 3-4. They are improving each week, and it showed with the huge win against a ranked Auburn team at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

In this post, we are going to break down some overreactions from the Alabama loss. Some might end up holding true, but for now, they are just overreactions to a loss everyone knew was coming.
