Finebaum is irrelevant. I want to refresh his memory on a past article: Finebaum's next article will have the headline. "I think Alabama will win championships under Nick Saban. Finebaum is never wrong. All he has to do is change his story. “I think Tennessee can become a national championship contender again,” Finebaum said. “I believe in this university, I believe in (Director of Athletics) Fulmer. Georgia, Florida have nothing on Tennessee when it comes to tradition and infrastructure.” What the Vols have in structure and storied tradition has simply been overshadowed by a mirage of bad choices according to the ESPN personality. “The only thing that’s happened to Tennessee the last 10-15 years have been a series of terrible decisions.” As for the 2019 version of Tennessee, Finebaum likes the direction that Pruitt seemingly has the program heading. While he guided the Vols to an underwhelming 5-7 finish in 2018, including their third-straight loss to rival Vanderbilt, there were positives. Those positives included a road win against a then-ranked Auburn team and a domination of a Kentucky team that would go on to finish with ten wins and a top-15 billing. With the combined leadership of former head coach and now-athletic director Phillip Fulmer and Pruitt, Finebaum thinks the legitimate rebuild of Tennessee is happening now. “I think it’s time to get this program back on track,” Finebaum said. “I think Jeremy Pruitt is well on his way in doing that. For the first time in a long time, I see and feel signs that Tennessee is coming out of hibernation. This seems like the real deal.”
