It's true. Tennessee Volunteer Robert Meachem has a guest post over at the official NCAA blog Every Game Counts. Meachem attributes the team's improvement this year to a family atmosphere and a conscious effort to build team chemistry:
Do you remember the year that Auburn was so great? And everybody was trying to figure out how they were so great. Well, the reason they were so great is that they bonded with each other, they had a family atmosphere. And now with us everything is more family. We bleed, we sweat and we cry together. We joke on each other all together. Everything we do, we do together. We just have a bond together.
