Here's what Cirminiello has to say about the Vols' strong-armed passing whiz:
12. QB Erik Ainge, Sr., Tennessee
Fund a campaign: Ainge regained his freshman form in 2006, authoring one of last season's comeback stories of the year. With similar strides in his second full season with offensive coordinator David Cutcliffe, he'll be in the thick of the race, especially if Tennessee can win the SEC title.
Buy new wrestling mats: Ainge was good last season, but a lot of the credit for his rebound goes to receivers Robert Meachem and Jayson Swain, both of whom are off to the NFL. All but five of his 19 touchdown passes went to the duo, production which will be real difficult to replace.
