What Jarrett Guarantano said about the fumble against Alabama following win over Gamecocks
Jarrett Guarantano was Tennessee’s leading passer (11-of-19 for 229 yards, 2 touchdowns) in the Volunteers’ 41-21 win over South Carolina on Saturday. On Saturday, however, the UT-USC game wasn’t the only game Guarantano was asked about.
When the Vols QB met with the media, he was asked about the disastrous fumble against Alabama.
“It was some miscommunication with the coaches and myself and with the communication with the whole offensive line and offense,” Guarantano told reporters, per GoVols247. “I went in the next day and I apologized to the coaches and the players, and I asked them for forgiveness, and I said that I was going to work my tail off from now on. It was some miscommunication, and being able to bounce back, the only way I know how to is get back to work with my teammates and really strive to get the next win.”
Some fans may be reluctant to “move on” from such a costly play against UT’s arch-rival, but it appears Guarantano is focused on what’s ahead for Tennessee – a four-game stretch against UAB, Kentucky, Missouri and Vanderbilt that will ultimately decide whether the Volunteers go bowling.
