Even though Tennessee has shown signs of life against Alabama, the Crimson Tide are still taking care of business in Knoxville.

The Vols are clearly outmatched, and coach Jeremy Pruitt — the former Alabama defensive coordinator — realizes that.

At halftime, he told the Vol Network that Tennessee isn’t going to be able to slow down Alabama until they get some more of Pruitt’s recruits in the mix:

The Vols probably aren’t going to come back in this game, but based on last week’s win over Auburn, the rebuild is already ahead of schedule.

It may take a couple more years, but Pruitt may make this rivalry a game again in the near future.
