Four of their first seven games were against teams ranked at least 20th or better. I know those aren't exactly the juggernauts that App State, Ohio or VT are, but that's who they've played. Of the 3 ranked teams UT has played, only 1 was top 10, and they lost to them.
Bet you didn't feel that way when Kiffin and Orgeron did it to UT when they left. What a bunch of hypocrites.
