LSU is not that improved at all.
CBS Sports: Two SEC teams overrated in coaches’ poll
Vols topped Fornelli’s list while the Tigers ranked third. Tennessee is
No. 10 overall in the actual Coaches Poll and received a first-place
vote. However, head coach Butch Jones is 3-13 against top 25 teams and
0-9 against top 10 teams since taking over in 2013.
No. 6 in the Coaches Poll, which Fornelli points out is six points ahead
of Ole Miss, who beat the Tigers by 21 points in 2015. He also refers
to the quarterback situation as “iffy at best,” which could put too much
on Leonard Fournette’s plate.
But Fornelli failed to mention
LSU and Tennessee return more starters than any other SEC teams, which
is why they have so much hype entering the season. Sure, he does credit
them both as being good teams, but is perhaps underestimating how
talented and experienced both are entering the season.
