Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt is learning on the job. That’s what makes the final stretch so critical
This is #fakenews. Seems like the reporter wants clicks and got em. Pruitt’s transparency is a breath of fresh air. He always takes the blame for when his players are failing him, for mostly a lack of talent, but sometimes effort. This article loosely ties together facts, some months old, and wants to paint a picture. Even with recent politics and ESPN failures, the media still doesn’t realize we don’t care about editorials, we just want the news. Pruitt has made some rookie coaching calls. The fumble was blown dead and couldn’t be reviewed and there was no angle to overturn it regardless of if you think it was or wasn’t a fumble. Guarantano still cannot process information or make decisions quickly even though he has a cannon. No one’s pointing that out. Helton calls the plays except the 4th down decisions. Let it be. UT fans and players, and recruits (!) love Pruitt. They’re headed in the right direction all accounts. Grow up and just give the facts, Sir. This is pure echo chamber.
Travis Henry was very good, but my TN vote goes to Jamal Lewis for his NFL tenure (since they are including that in this article). Elite 2000 yd club and Super Bowl champion.
We can all look like fools or geniuses with 10 yr old quotes or projections. On this one, an an NFL Redskins’ fan who loved RGIII, I have already thought this about Jackson. He has Sunday talent but will no longer have elite speed and is very small at the next level. RGIII has his ACL torn during a mid-air collision with Ngata. Tons of dynamic (Manziel & Tebow) can make it happen on Saturdays by being phenom athletes. There are 22 phenom athletes on the field, every game, on Sundays.
As a #VFL, I do not like this this decision but I understand he is a purist and wants to keep it simple, like Alabama’s uniforms. They were voted best unis in NCAA by one poll. Have the shirt and ball cap to match I like them so much.
Would not watch. Bad idea.
Tennessee doesn’t need a RB and won’t need a WR if Jennings returns with Calloway. But yeah, everything else. :D
Georgia is filling the gap left by TN. This hire could make it an interim position. #GBO Lots of good coaches hired. We know very little. Winning fixes everything.
We wouldn’t be taking about Tee if he didn’t graduate from UT. He is an OC in training if he doesn’t call all of the plays. Could be great someday but not quite ready.
It got your click. This is the only thing that matters in 2017 journalism.
Fingers crossed. Folks say that Phil was an absolute closer in the living room on the recruiting trail. Hopefully he can find the same success on the next level. Winning fixes everything.
eaglebuc - You need to remove this. I graduated from BHS and was at the game. You're upset we were beaten by a better team and that he taunted the crowd once. This kid is a stud. He looked to have hurt his knee (looked bad) because his coach had him in the game with 4 min left in a blowout win (horrible coach mistake). I hope he is fine and ready to play in the fall. Now - with Phil Fulmer as the AD, coaching and recruiting conversations could re-open. People always said Phil was $$$ in the living room and could recruit anyone. I hope that's true for coaches as well, and it could re-open conversations with guys like Mr. May. Please reconsider and delete this post.
