Tennessee's 2010 football schedule offers many challenges

Now that recruiting season is finished and Tennessee did reasonably well, it is time to look at the 2010 schedule. Here it is:

Sept. 4 – vs. UT-Martin
Sept. 11 – vs. Oregon
Sept. 18 – vs. Florida
Sept. 25 – vs. Alabama-Birmingham
Oct. 2 – at LSU
Oct. 9 – at Georgia
Oct. 23 – vs. Alabama
Oct. 30 – at South Carolina
Nov. 6 – at Memphis
Nov. 13 – vs. Ole Miss
Nov. 20 – at Vanderbilt
Nov. 27 – vs. Kentucky

The good news is Tennessee plays its first four games at home. The bad news is two of those games are against Oregon and Florida. And then, after that, we play five of our next seven games on the road.

LSU comes on the schedule in place of Auburn, and we play them at Baton Rouge. I've never liked playing at Memphis but we do on Nov. 6. One silver lining is that we have a bye week before we play Alabama.

This is a tough schedule, and most of our playmakers from last year are gone.

Good luck Coach Dooley.
