Look, times have been hard on Rocky Top for a few years now. It started around 2005. That's when a former freshman phenom of a QB, named Eric Ainge, put together a miserable, cringe worthy sophomore campaign at QB for Tennessee. It wasn't the same guy that had taken the reigns his freshman year. Not the same guy that, with his 6-6 220 frame was drawing the "young Peyton Manning" comparisons, which is the standard that all Tennessee QB's are measured by.
