Is this the season it all clicks for head coach Cuonzo Martin? In 2011-12, the Vols revealed exciting potential; in 2012-13, they failed to make good. There is every reason for optimism now: Bullish forward Jarnell Stokes and SEC leading scorer Jordan McRae will be rejoined by Jeronne Maymon, who spent almost all of last season recovering from knee surgery. Point guard Trae Golden left the team in May, but the transfer of Memphis guard Antonio Barton might be a better fit anyway. It's NCAA tournament or bust in Knoxville this season, and that's a baseline expectation.
