Although not to take anything away from UMass, but TN was a team that never really earned it's ranking. Played weak teams OOC, like Vandy. Sometimes the committee gives out rankings to P5 schools deserved or not.

It's good not great. Let them play a team that earned it's ranking and then let's talk. It's not 0-0 which would be impressive. Holding them scoreless. But take whatever confetti droppings you want.

Your reasonable tone almost convinced me. So rankings count except when they donít? Only a clean sheet would make Umass worthy?

Tennessee
Top 25

Last year
Top ten

2017
Top 20

But yeah, meh


Confetti

No Shaw. Not close to the same team. They got a history ranking to start the year and did not lose games. Same as Unc. Committee bases a lot of last year to start even tho personnel can change a lot. Look at Duke. They lost huge pieces and somehow were ranked highly.

How about UMass scored the same amount of goals as Tennesseeís other 6 opponents combined would that be impressive?

Itís boring to argue. Whatever. But is it, they donít play quality opponents, or is it they donít have Shaw etc?

Time will tell for both teams.

Iím not arguing. Different poster. Just stating a fact. Tennessee are not close to the same team without Shaw but the ranking to start the year does not reflect that. They get the benefit of last year. If they donít lose games( that can be schedule related ) they will be ranked high. U mass may be great but the value of beating Tennessee is yet to be determined
