Somebody buy Joe a beer!
UTK, Class of 2009
At first I thought you meant in the SEC.... then I looked at the list.... 13th is way too high...
That's bizarre. I'm glad for the attention, but I'd like to hear his rationale. Hopefully the Vols can live up to his expectations!
He has several questionable rankings in his poll. On second thought, don't buy him a beer. Looks like he had a few too many when he created his power poll.
But, we may be here midseason if things go our way!
Nice find +1. I have my doubts about us but let's hope he is right. He also had the Gators 10th. The bottom line is that these guys were all over the place after the first few teams so me thinks they are guessing more than analyzing.
Butch Jones. Who???
Let's hope he's right.
i think we'll do well this fall and may even surprise a few people....but i want some of what Joe Schad is smoking!
I assume he's going by upside and it being our turn for good luck
Honestly, we are an awesome team for a reporter to take a flyer on. This team is similar to Arky last year or 2 years ago IMO, so we will at least be exciting.
If we win, Joe looks like a genius. If we lose, blame the coach who will be gone next year.
I agree! The others don't even have us in the top 25. Maybe he has good feeling about us! I will take it!
I can see Tennessee on the outside looking in on the Top 25 (26th-29th), but not #13. Now if UT beats NC State, GA State, and UF, my opinion will change...
Joe has obviously gone rogue

I honestly think his poll about right all the way down the list. I know I am a bit of a Positive Peggy, but we have several individuals who will make a living playing on Sundays on both sides of the ball. If we play up to the level we are capable of playing I believe 13 is about right.
Several of you guys said in another thread the other day we'd win 10, but now you doubt we'd be highly ranked? Win 10 and we probably are about 13th.
Why not make some bold picks during the preseason? Anybody can round up the usual suspects.
This is exactly what I just told Wes earlier when reading about Schad's pick. Preseason predictions are mostly worthless. If you're wrong, who cares? If you're right about a team no one else expected to be that good, you get to say, "I told you so."

He had Michigan 5th and UNC in the top 25. Come on man!?
UNC has a lot of talent and they are very fired up about Larry Fedora as coach. I could see it happening. Michigan at fifth, I couldn't go there.
Maybe he did this like March Madness and had a couple different brackets...he just accidentally turned the Cinderella one in instead of his real one!
5th is a little high but they did win like 10 games
Especially since they open up with Bama in Texas.
joe is gonna look like a genius after the florida game and we are undefeated. GO BIG ORANGE!!!
GO BIG ORANGE!!!
+1 my friend!!
