The Tennessee Volunteers, who began the season with national championship aspirations, have just lost 16-15 to the perennial 4th-in-the-SEC-east South Carolina Gamecocks.
The Vols fall to 3-4 overall and 2-4 in the SEC. They are 0-3 in the SEC East. They were favorites to win it.
2005 is shaping up to be the worst season for Tennessee football in a very long time. Add to that the fact that pre-season expectations were higher than they had been for a very long time, and you have serious problems on Rocky Top.
This is not going to be pretty.
