Breaking: Vol supporters are eager for Tennessee to play Iowa in the Citrus Bowl.

The Vols’ season has been uneventful and has fallen short of fans’ expectations.

According to Cosentino, “I believe they fulfilled real expectations, but they let the Tennessee fans down.” “With the SEC schedule and the players we lost, we had pretty high expectations for our team.
