Despite their team missing out on a bowl game with a 5-7 record, Tennessee football fans have a great deal to look forward to in 2014. The Vols, who went out and hired head coach Butch Jones away from Cincinnati last year, played one of the nation’s toughest schedules (seven ranked teams in eight games at one point) and stayed competitive throughout the year. Plus, they’ve currently got the third best recruiting class (according to Rivals) in the country coming in ahead of next season.
It appears that the program’s PR department has been on its game as well – check out the epic eight-minute hype video the Vols released last night just two days before national signing day. Jones himself narrates the clip.
Only time will tell if the Vols can that next step in 2014 – but early indications certainly suggest they will.
