Tennessee returned to a bowl for the first time since the 2010 season and took home a win against Iowa in the TaxSlayer Bowl. Thank a much improved defense--especially passing--for the turnaround. A dominant defensive line actually improved this offseason, but the unit loses linebacker AJ Johnson, the team’s leading tackler and defensive leader. While his direct replacement is yet to be discovered, a highly impressive recruiting class of 18 four-star recruits bolsters the pass rush, and when you repeatedly pressure the quarterback, good things happen. The offense is where help is needed, but they’ve got a good start with Joshua Dobbs at quarterback. The explosive dual threat took over midseason and impressed. He’ll have 2014’s leading receiver Pig Howard and Marquez North returning from injury, and Jalen Hurd is a serviceable lead tailback. The offensive line was horrendous a year ago, and it remains to be seen if a year of experience will be enough to improve it. It appears the defense will have everything it needs--but can the offense stave off the pressure long enough to beat SEC defenses? The Tennessee Volunteers operate under coach Butch Jones at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville. The Vols have been one of the more overlooked teams in this latest era of SEC greatness, but it wasn’t always that way--they won 10 games as recently as 2007. In fact, they made a bowl all but three years between 1981 and 2010, holding a national rank at some point every year between 1985 and 2008. All time, Tennessee has won six national titles, made 50 bowl appearances, and holds a .680 winning percentage. Peyton Manning, Reggie White, Stanley Morgan, Jason Witten, Arian Foster, Jamal Lewis, Jerod Mayo, and Albert Haynesworth are just some of the bigger names to come out of the school. Manning fell just short of a national title in 1997, but QB Tee Martin won one the next year anyway. An exciting 2015 home schedule includes Bowling Green, Oklahoma, Western Carolina, Arkansas, Georgia, South Carolina, North Texas, and Vanderbilt.
