For 14 UT Seniors, There Won’t Be Too Much Of A Legacy

Tomorrow’s Senior Day festivities in Knoxville shouldn’t take very long.  Derek Dooley’s squad will say goodbye to just 14 seniors… a pretty telling sign of the youth on Tennessee’s squad.  When asked about the legacy he and his fellow seniors will leave behind, tailback Tauren Poole wasn’t exactly upbeat:

“I don’t know if there is much of a legacy, man, and I’m not saying that to be disrespectful or anything.  I don’t know if people are going to remember this class for what we did because we didn’t to much, to be honest with you.  We can finish these two games on a good note (Vandy and Kentucky).

We have to continue to come to the practice field and keep guys positive, because there is negative energy around everywhere, but we have to stay positive.”

Ever heard the team “playing out the string?”  Sounds like that might just apply in Knoxville these days.

Take a frustrating season, mix in a good dose of youth and a lack of senior leadership and things can spiral downward quickly.  If Vanderbilt gets an early lead on Tennessee tomorrow, it will be interesting to see if the Vols fight through it… or if they succumb to some more of that negative energy.
