Is Tennessee Football going to the College Football Playoff this year, or will they have a major drop-off? Well, depending on which analyst you listen to, as we’ve discussed, the prediction is wildly different. Caleb Calhoun and Dave Hooker discuss what PFF and Greg McElroy have to say about the Vols on Off The Hook Sports’ Thursday, July 13 podcast. Josh Ward and Caleb Jarreau join.
Tennessee Football a top 15 CFP contender, per PFF
A recent article by Pro Football Focus named Tennessee Football one of the top 15 CFB Playoff contenders and actually said the Vols could be better this year. Since PFF is more analytical, does this carry more weight than other preseason projections from media outlets, or is it the same?
Greg McElroy: Tennessee Football will “come back to Earth”
While PFF College is high on Tennessee Football, former Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback and current ESPN analyst Greg McElroy has the Vols at No. 18 in his preseason rankings and is projecting that they will win nine games. McElroy said they will have a bit of a “correction.” How accurate is he on that?
Vols who could win postseason awards
Josh Ward of 99.1 The Sports Animal joins the show to talk about his article on Tennessee Football players most likely to win postseason awards in 2023. Could the Vols have back to back Biletnikoff Award winners. What about finally bringing home a Heisman Trophy? Are there any other awards that a different player could win?
Recruiting news for Tennessee Football
Last week, Tennessee Football picked up a huge offensive line commitment in William Satterwhite. The Vols are now trending for a lot more athletes, most recently four-star wide receiver Amari Jefferson. Which of their targets are the most important, and who is most likely to commit in the coming days, weeks and month? Caleb Jarreau joins the show to discuss Josh Heupel on the trail.
