KNOXVILLE -- Nick Reveiz didn't see the field in Saturday afternoon's Orange-White game. No sense tempting the football gods by playing on a repaired knee that could almost assuredly use a few more weeks of rehab.
But that didn't stop the spiritual leader of Tennessee's defense from making a few predictions about the linebacker corps he will rejoin in August.
"I think we did well," said Reveiz following the White's 16-7 victory. "I think we have the potential to be one of the best groups on the team, if not the whole SEC. We've got to keep building, we've got to keep working. We're going to have a good year."
They've all got to keep building and working to have a good year against a schedule that includes Oregon, Florida and defending national champ Alabama at home, plus road trips to LSU, Georgia and South Carolina.
