Tennessee's young'uns are coming of age.
After a modest two-game win streak over South Carolina and Kentucky, Coach Butch Jones' Vols can leave this season on a even more positive note by beating No. 19 Missouri and in-state rival Vanderbilt.
Every week that passes, I grow more anxious to see the finished product that will be the inaugural College Football Playoff field of four teams.
A committee has been appointed to select what it deems the four best college football teams.
Are you kidding me? No college football coach of one of the teams currently in the conversation will be able to survive without incurring some mental scars.
It's been a long time coming for Butch Jones and Tennessee's football team.
You could see improvement in previous games, but every time they had a chance to win, they came up short. It was wearing thin.
Any NFL team with playoff goals has to have important individual pieces.
On offense, you have to have a solid quarterback who can make all the throws and read defenses.
Now that we have an ebola czar, I hereby humbly declare myself college football czar.

In any sport, winning beats losing. It's why they keep score.
In the case of the Titans, what a difference a week made. Last week, they dropped a close 29-28 decision to the visiting Cleveland Browns. It was lost in the most bizarre fashion - taking a 28-3 lead only to allow the Browns to score 26 unanswered points.
The Titans honored former kicker Rob Bironas before Sunday's NFL game against Cleveland.
They showed a video montage of highlights of his nine seasons with the Titans.
Tennessee's football team is on the right track.
Yes, they lost a tough 35-32 game to No. 12 Georgia. It's a hostile atmosphere between the hedges, especially when you have a freshman-sophomore dominated team like the Vols.
When a quarterback plays well and his team does the same, it is the quarterback that gets most of the credit.
If a quarterback has a bad day, odds are his team will find ways to lose. The quarterback then gets most of the blame.
Tennessee fans looked at the Oklahoma game as a measuring stick to determine just how far second year coach Butch Jones has taken this program.
The Vol Nation is hungry for success, after dismal results produced by former head coaches, Lane Kiffin and Derek Dooley.
