KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee believes it wont be distracted by its unfamiliar status as a preseason division favorite.The Volunteers opened preseason practice Monday, returning the nucleus of a team that went 9-4 last year and ended the season on a six-game winning streak. Southeastern Conference media have picked Tennessee to win its first Eastern Division title since 2007.When your internal expectations are very high, it doesnt matter what the external expectations are, coach Butch Jones said.This marks the first time since 2005 that SEC media have picked Tennessee to win a division, but that distinction comes with a caveat. Tennessee finished only 5-6 in 2005 despite being picked to win the entire SEC that year.It wants to avoid a similar fate this season.We always have high expectations, Jones said. We expect to compete for championships. Thats why you compete. But you have to follow the process, and its a journey. The more time you spend talking about winning championships and expectations, youre wasting time. Thats taking you away from the task at hand -- and thats being a better football player and a better football team.Jones enters his fourth season as the Vols coach with the most experienced team hes had at Tennessee. That has allowed him to lean on his upperclassmen to help teach the newcomers whats expected.If somebodys doing something theyre not supposed to do, we can (correct) it, junior defensive end Derek Barnett said. He trusts us because were older.Its different because since Ive been here, weve always been a young team. Its the first year since Ive been here weve been a veteran team.The only starters from last seasons Outback Bowl blowout of Northwestern missing from this seasons roster are offensive tackle Kyler Kerbyson, wide receiver Von Pearson, defensive tackle Owen Williams and safeties Brian Randolph and LaDarrell McNeil.On offense, the Vols must find a left tackle to replace Kerbyson, a two-year starter. They also are seeking reliable targets for quarterback Joshua Dobbs, as the Vols havent had anyone accumulate more than 618 yards receiving in each of Jones first three seasons.We have to stay healthy on the perimeter of our offense, Jones said. When you look at it, weve been decimated with injuries (at receiver) the last two years. Everything inn the throw game is about rhythm and timing and trust and consistency. Dennis Smith Jersey. Its kind of been a revolving door there.Tennessees defense must replace the Randolph-McNeill duo at safety. Jones called it an extremely, extremely, extremely competitive situation. Candidates include Todd Kelly Jr., Rashaan Gaulden, Evan Berry, Micah Abernathy and freshman Nigel Warrior.The Vols also must determine who will line up at cornerback alongside senior Cam Sutton, entering his fourth year as a starter. Justin Martin, Emmanuel Moseley, Malik Foreman and freshman Marquill Osborne are among the contenders for that spot.But with much of the lineup relatively set, the biggest concern for Tennessee may be how it handles its status as the team to beat in the SEC East. Jones likes the mindset his team has shown throughout the offseason.As we all know, its a long journey, he said. Its not a sprint. Its a marathon and every day is critical. We put a lot of work into this, a lot of work that really started since we walked off the field in Tampa (after the Outback Bowl).Game notes Jones said defensive tackle Shy Tuttle will be very, very limited at the start of preseason practice. Tuttle is recovering from a broken fibula and torn ankle ligament that caused him to miss the final seven games last season. Jones said wide receiver Jauan Jennings also will be limited at the start of practice but is expected to be full-go here real shortly....
