07:43 AM ET 11.28 | If 4-7 Tennessee manages to lose to 2-9 Kentucky on Saturday in Lexington, the Vols will become the first team in Tennessee history to lose more than seven games in a season. "You just informed me," senior offensive lineman Ja'Wuan James said on Monday. It may seem too cruel to point out, especially for a senior class that has experienced its share of indignities, that even a victory on Saturday won't erase this distinction: Tennessee's senior class will leave Knoxville with the worst four-year record in school history. Tennessee is 20-28 overall and 6-25 in the SEC since 2010. "Honestly, I think God chose us to go through it," said senior defensive end Marlon Walls. "It was our destiny, as much as we don't like it. I guess he thought we were strong enough to do it."

UTk blazing a trail for the Gators to follow? Sure hope not.

At least Lane Kiffin is out of work, so the season is not a total loss.

You know how bad it is for Vol fans??? I hear em wishing and fawning over the Phillip Fulmer days.

Let Tennessee be a lessen to all CF fans (hear me LSU). Be careful what you wish for.

It is really good to make history sometimes, this is one of them. ;-)

"Honestly, I think God chose us to go through it" The chosen ones. Who knew?

With Walls' Biblical allusion, I think it's more like 40 years in the wilderness.

Tennessee's worst class ever was the one where the teacher forced the athletes do the work and refused to pass them if they didn't. Remedial reading class.

Us Gator fans might wanna consider this advice as well. If you don't have a good replacement candidate in your sights, be careful kicking out who you have.

No one pays attention to anything except ESPN these days. Anything else is just too hard!

This article is in very poor taste. Do those young men really deserve to be told they're the "worst ever?" I think not.

November 28, 2013  07:14 PM ET

The thing they should fear most is no one cares that they suck. Then they will start to believe it.

November 28, 2013  07:56 PM ET

LK's creamsicle team went to a bowl at least.

And TENN's worst class was the one that featured a dude that picked a Prius as a getaway car.
