Tennessee kicked off fall training camp Monday under second-year head coach Josh Heupel.

Heupel met with media Sunday ahead of the Vols’ first practice.

He discussed Tennessee’s program shifting its mindset from hoping, to believing, and expecting to win.

“It’s based off of the investment that you have inside of your program,” Heupel said. “Not by one person, but everybody. Being connected in a way where you believe in the person to the left and to the right of you. It’s something that doesn’t happen immediately. It’s not something you can just talk about and it happens. It happens because of what you’ve done in the investment process.

“Our guys have done a great job. Been dramatically different since they got back in January. They continue to push forward. I believe we’re in a position, if we handle training camp the right way, that we’ll be in that type of position this fall.”

Tennessee will kick off its 2022 season Sept. 1 against Ball State at Neyland Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. EDT and SEC Network will televise the season-opening matchup.

The Vols went 7-6 and appeared in the TransPerfect Music City Bowl during Heupel’s first season in 2021.
