Every Friday of the offseason, a member of the RTI team will post a top-10 list. Many will be directly related to UT athletics, but some will veer off course a bit. Obviously these will all be subjective in nature, a bit ridiculous at times and subject to a lot opinion and discussion.
In light of my colleagues Houston Kress and Reed Carringer completely taking RTI Radio off the the rails this week in terms of optimism for 2015 Tennessee football, I decided to follow that up with a Friday Top 10 consisting of reasons for Vol fans to be optimistic about the 2015 team.
This is definitely a sunshine-leaning piece. And I may have to follow it up next Friday with 10 reasons for concerns (which approximately three of you will read), but this week’s piece is all grounded in reality.
The Vols have been a chic pick nationally to make some noise in the SEC next year with some pundits even going as far as putting UT in the College Football Playoff conversation. And while I’m not ready to go there yet (again, see my piece next week), there are plenty of reasons why the Vols can be really good in 2015.
