    how will we be ? Do we have our linemen returning .I have heard that The Vols will be the only team taht has 0 linemen returning .Quote from a Vols forum "Tennessee is the only team in CFB that doesn't return a starter on either line of scrimmage for 2014."

    This was the preseason depth chart for Tennessee.

    That has to be an NCAA record for starting juniors and seniors. 20 out of the 25 starters (including 3 kicking game specialists) were Juniors, Redshirt Juniors, Seniors and Redshirt Seniors. Egad.

    It's been shocking how little they've got out of their offensive line with that experience. In 2012 there were 105 combined starts on the OL, 2013 had 123.

    Just as a comparison LSU had 104 in 2012, 49 going into 2013.
