Gosh, Arkansas has a lot of work to do, just like Tennessee has. We don't even know what the August 1 rosters will look like yet.
Tennessee has nice talent lined up at running back and wide receiver. QB Josh Dobbs can run and throw, hard to stop. The Vols' offensive line has to be much improved now that it doesn't have five new starters. On defense, Tennessee is very pleased with its talent level on the Dline and in the secondary. Their starting linebackers should be good, not as much depth there.
Last season, the Vols gave up 30+ points to Oklahoma, Georgia, Ole Miss, Alabama and South Carolina. Their best defensive performances in the SEC were allowing 10 points to Florida (in a loss), 16 to Kentucky and 17 to Vanderbilt.
Tennessee scored 10 at OU, 9 against Florida, 3 at Ole Miss, 20 vs. Alabama, 21 vs. Missouri, 24 at Vanderbilt. Their highlights were 50 vs. Kentucky, 45 at South Carolina, and 45 on Iowa in the TaxSlayer Bowl. Did a respectable 32 points at Georgia.
Dobbs only started the last five games, played most of the Alabama game. Just eyeballing it, they have more problems on defense than offense, is my guess.
Interesting aspect of the schedule: In recent years, Tennessee had scheduled an easy nonconference game between Florida and Georgia. Arkansas plays the Vols the week after their road trip to the Swamp + a week before Georgia. Not sure it really matters one way or the other. For Arkansas, it's sandwiched between Texas A&M and Alabama.
