Jeremy Pruitt getting roasted after loss to Arkansas
Jeremy Pruitt’s Tennessee Volunteers came out and laid an egg against Arkansas Saturday night and lost 24-13.
The Vols had a week off to prepare for the Hogs, and it didn’t necessarily show. Before leaving with a head injury, quarterback Jarrett Guarantano finished with just 42 yards passing. Backup signal caller Brian Maurer didn’t fare much better, as he missed on all 4 of his attempts. Freshman Harrison Bailey’s first pass was intercepted, along with a second to end the game.
Arkansas (and former Gators) quarterback Feleipe Franks finishes his college career 3-0 against the Vols. He finished Saturday 18-of-24 for 215 yards and 3 passing touchdowns.
Following the loss to Arkansas, Pruitt was roasted on social media:
Just awful, awful game management by Jeremy Pruitt. What the hell was that?

Lol year 1 Sam Pittman just embarrassed year 3 Jeremy Pruitt

Jeremy Pruitt is about to find out what it feels like to have lost the confidence of Vol nation. Wouldn’t want to be him right now because absolutely no one wants him as coach.

24 unanswered to Arkansas.

Somebody convince me that Jeremy #Pruitt knows how to coach an SEC team.

Jeremy Pruitt telling @SECNetwork that he’s not going to play Harrison Bailey so he doesn’t put him in harms way. Meanwhile Pruitt is perfectly fine crushing all hope & the spirits of all Vols fans playing Maurer. #smh

Jeremy Pruitt would have kept Josh Dobbs on the bench until his junior year.

Jeremy Pruitt has kicked every hard working Tennessee bettor right in the testicles tonight

I’m sure glad we gave Jeremy Pruitt and extension. I’d hate to lose him to a team wanting to lose more than Tennessee.

Butch Jones a better coach than Jeremy Pruitt? It’s a fair question.

Jim Chaney is trash can juice. Jeremy Pruitt needs canned tomorrow.
Coaches make their money at halftime with adjustments, and this staff is being out-coached by MILES. pic.twitter.com/CHI39vQ6a4

Jeremy Pruitt’s handling of the QB situation has been such a disaster. This offense is toast.

Jeremy Pruitt. More like Jeremy blew it.

Butch Jones > Jeremy Pruitt

Arkansas offensive coordinator Kendall Briles is coaching circles around Jeremy Pruitt.

Jeremy Pruitt may be a worse coaching hire than Derek Dooley

Jeremy Pruitt was doing such a good job until teams realized he doesn’t have a QB who can actually play
