ESPN Season Report Card: Tennessee

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports
ESPN is releasing 2013 Season Report Cards for all SEC teams. Here is how they graded Tennessee:

OFFENSE: C-
DEFENSE: D
SPECIAL TEAMS: B-

The breakthrough win over South Carolina keeps this from being a "D." Losing seasons are never acceptable at Tennessee, even when it's the fourth in a row. But Butch Jones clearly made some strides with this program in his first season in Knoxville. The Vols were right there in the 34-31 overtime loss to Georgia, and to their credit, bounced back two weeks later from that bitter loss with the 23-21 win over South Carolina, their first over a nationally ranked foe after 19 straight defeats. The injury to Worley was a tough blow. Had he stayed healthy, Tennessee might have been able to sneak into a bowl game. The schedule was brutal, too. Five of the Vols' seven losses came to teams that finished the season ranked in the top 10 nationally. Jones is working feverishly to upgrade the talent, but this first grade on his watch comes in just south of average.
