Tennessee coach Butch Jones said he was impressed that 97,223 fans braved the cold weather to watch Tennessee's final regular season game at Neyland Stadium.

"That's very encouraging," he said. "Because when this thing really gets going, it's going to be special."

The Vols averaged 95,584 fans over seven games at Neyland Stadium, the best numbers since 2010. But UT fell about 4,000 short of the 99,781 averaged during Derek Dooley's first season at the helm.

It will be 2015 before we see the improvement. Next year will not be better than this year. The top class we have for 2014 will only be freshman next year so alot of learning will be going on. It will take another class to be competitive again. Look for the next bowl game in 2015. Then 2016 we should see the fruits of Butch Jones labor.
