Few Tennessee fans could have seen this coming at the beginning of the season.
The Volunteers were upset by the South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday night. Tennessee has lost three straight, and while the first two came against top 10 opponents, the South Carolina loss came after a bye week.
Paul Finebaum, Jason Sehorn and Kevin Carter debated what is wrong with Tennessee, and they all pointed their fingers at the same issue: coaching.
Tennessee is all but out of the SEC race before November.

A month ago, everyone was gushing about Tennessee and how the program had returned to relevance. But now sitting at 5-3 overall and 2-3 in SEC play, fans seem to be panicking.
The Volunteers need to win their final three conference games — vs. Kentucky and Missouri and at Vanderbilt — and for Florida to lose twice to get to Atlanta for the SEC championship game.
The Volunteers will have a chance to end their losing streak this Saturday when they take on Tennessee Tech.
