Wiedmer: Vols have talent, temperament to win the SEC East

The University of Tennessee's second Southeastern Conference football victory in two tries this season complete Saturday afternoon, sophomore linebacker Henry To'o To'o was asked to comment on the Volunteers' offensive line.

"We have the best offensive line in the country," replied the California native shortly after the Vols' 35-12 victory over Missouri inside Neyland Stadium.

It's beginning to look as if the Big Orange just might have the best team in the SEC East, if not the whole Southeastern Conference. At least it could certainly begin looking that way if the Vols win next weekend at Georgia.

This is not written to needlessly hype a contest that needs no pregame promotion. This is to say that two games into Jeremy Pruitt's third season atop Rocky Top, UT looks closer to its 1990s glory days than it has in two decades, beginning with an offensive line a handful of NFL teams would covet now that Cade Mays has been let out of SEC transfer jail.
