This is the kind of player Tennessee should be recruiting more of: good three stars. Develop them and prove to four and five star talent that you aren’t a talent graveyard.
As an impartial observer, this sounds more like a UK pipe dream than reality. The ceiling at UT is higher than it ever will be at Kentucky.
Truth right here. I’ll say this though: the quickest way to relevance is a great offense. Think about the last 15 years with Oregon and Baylor. Those two programs had unstoppable offenses under Chip Kelly and Art Briles. Ole Miss has something in Kiffin. Time will tell for Tennessee.
100% ok in my book. Don’t want to get shown up? Just pitch and play better.
The only team that has a realistic shot of doing this is Tennessee. They're the only other program in the East with the ceiling of Florida and Georgia. Kentucky lacks fan support for football, Missouri and South Carolina both lack the resources and the boosters to compete. Vanderbilt.... well, they're Vanderbilt. Tennessee has the ability to get back there someday, but probably not for another 5-6 years.
As long as the NFL draft has been around, You can argue that some people make it more about themselves than they do the team. This isn’t the start. This is a logical step in this long sequence of events
Bro, Hooker is your best option. Tennessee’s quarterback play was awful last year. You might as well go with the only quarterback with experience who wasn’t part of that mess
Based off how y’all did last year, no QB on your roster can throw so you might as well roll with the one on your roster that can run.
Well at least he's consistent, unlike his Bulldogs.
Bad idea, Tennessee.
Sounds like Sunseri all over again. We all know how that went for Tennessee.
Awfully brave to assume the Vols will get in field goal range this season.....
Hit dogs bark the loudest. Did I hit a nerve, Smokey?
“One of the best staffs in the entire country” *brings half his UCF staff* I think not.
I've been saying that Tennessee is the new Nebraska. Well.... isn't this ironic?
That would be hilarious
I used to think Tennessee was the new Nebraska. Now they’re the new SMU.
This is definitely a Tennessee move: find a person less qualified than Pruitt.
Better than you since 1998: Texas: 199-84 Tennessee: 168-109
Tennessee is probably better off hiring the coach at Army so he can run the triple option. Might be the only way to start winning again.
Not sure why a kid would want to go to Tennessee right now
Not sure you should be complaining about his record. Mr. 8-8 would be a step up from 3-7.
Honestly, I think Tennessee finds a way to lose this game. I'm not sure how and I'm not sure of the score.... but I don't see Tennessee pulling this one off.
Tennessee hasn't been relevant since 2001.
When was the last time Mizzou won a natty? I'll wait.
Tennessee definitely doesn't have the stones to fire Pruitt and chase Freeze. That's why they're mediocre at best in this era.
Tennessee's been irrelevant since they won their natty in the '98 season. They'll probably continue being irrelevant.
I'm not sure if I've ever read so many words in succession that were devoid of rational thought.
As an impartial third party, I would say that if he has been ruled as innocent of any wrong-doing then he should have the opportunity to rejoin the team with conditions.
Unless you're a Tennessee fan. I was a TN fan when I was a kid. Went to a game in Lexington when I was 7 when TN still had the streak going (this was '95). I remember that after the game finished, a grown man spit on me because I was decked out in orange. We went out to my dad's Jeep and found that his TN tire cover had been slashed open. We never went back.
