Isn't this scary?

From OTS at RollBamaRoll: "Tennessee: Pretty easy to see that end result coming from a mile away, but at least give Dooley credit for having his guys prepared and playing hard. For better or for worse -- and hopefully it is for worse -- this is likely going to be the status quo for the Vols this season. An upset or two might happen (big smile and waive at you, UGA), but the odds are that the Vols lose to every solid team they play this season. The good news, if any, is that without a major upset to a lesser team the Vols ought to make it to 6-6 and the PapaJohns.com Bowl. Well, okay, so maybe that's only good news for those of us who bleed crimson and white." Now, I love OTS- he's a man among boys in blog-land: both in expertise and journalistic integrity. But I have to say- even fans of teams in the SEC know that going 6-6 and winning against less than solid-teams will guarantee that a SEC team will be bowl bound. Trouble is, when a SEC team plays in their bowl game, they usually (more often than not) WIN. That's the part that sucks for a non-SEC partisan. Still, the commentary on a team like Tennessee is scary indeed.
