Since arriving at Tennessee, Sunseri took personnel that had been recruited and developed for a 4-3 alignment and tried to shoe-horn players into his preferred 3-4 scheme. It simply hasn't translated. Tennessee currently ranks dead last in the SEC in total defense at 453.4 yards per game.

"We aren't going to sit here and defend anything we're doing because statistically we can't," Dooley said. "… The question is, what's the problem and how do we fix it?"

Dooley could start by adjusting what the Vols are doing on offense. When your defense is struggling this badly, why not shorten the game? The longer your offense is on the field, the less your defense is exposed. With that in mind, Dooley should abandon the no-huddle offense. He should run the ball more to take time off the clock.
