Drew Lock’s breakout season at quarterback has triggered some hardcore dreaming among Missouri fans; In a transitional SEC East, the Gamecocks look like runner-up contenders simply because their fundamentals are better than those of most competitors; It’s a new day in Knoxville as Jeremy Pruitt takes over as head coach, and if he’s anywhere near the emerging talent many believe him to be, the Vols just got better no matter how many players they lose from last year’s squad; Unfortunately for the Commodores, the method of success in Nashville is typically to schedule a competitive team every four years, when a strong defense moves up en masse from the junior class.
