2. The Vols should be a preseason Top 15 team in 2016
A few national outlets have already put Tennessee in the top 15 in their way-too-early 2016 rankings. Friday’s demolition of Northwestern will do nothing but reinforce that notion, possibly even pushing the Vols higher. UT will likely finish in the top 20 range this year and with one of the younger rosters in the nation, it seems very realistic that Tennessee can, and should, be at least in the top 15 in the 2016 preseason polls.
