Video: Former Vols LT on noise from media: 'It's hard to ignore'
Tennessee’s top-rated sports show “The Sports Source” talks about Volunteer football every Sunday morning. For today’s show, former Volunteers left tackle Kyler Kerbyson was asked about noise from the media and how much it can affect a team.
“It’s hard to ignore all of the stuff that people say to you,” Kerbyson said. “They’re very negative about a lot of things. And you think, would that help a team if you were being negative toward them? No, it wouldn’t, so try to be positive.”
The Volunteers are currently 3-0 in 2016, but because of the preseason expectations of possibly winning the Southeastern Conference outright, the way in which they have gone about their wins has been questioned. Tennessee defeated Ohio yesterday, 28-19.
Up next for the Volunteers will be its first SEC challenge of the season when the team hosts Florida at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday. ESPN’s “College GameDay” will be in Knoxville to witness the action.
