Forgive and forget.

Hey, if I were Jeremy Pruitt, I wouldn’t dwell on the 2018 season, either.

The Volunteers held their first spring practice of the year Thursday at Haslem Field, and when Pruitt was asked afterward about the difference compared to last spring, his response included “I can’t remember what I had for breakfast last week.”

Later, when asked another question about 2018, his first season with the program, he said, “We had our shots last year.

“It’s over with. There’s nothing we can do about it, so I’m not going to talk about it anymore. We’re going to worry about next year; it’s the only thing we have control over.”

It’s only a crappy season if you remember it.  That’s why he gets paid the big bucks.

    How many throwaway seasons does Pruitt get?

    Butch got five. Dooley got three.


  2. Give him credit; you can see some life in the Vols. He is recruiting pretty well and especially on the O-Line; which I thought might be a problem with Friend there. And I think that this team will play tough physical football. They are not talented enough for a Georgia yet; but I could see them going into the Swamp and hitting the Gators right in the mouth. Still believe that the hole is too deep for the first coach to dig them out of. They’ll get hostile about year four when they find themselves yet again in 3rd or 4th – even 2nd and Pruitt will either be forced out or will move on to a greener pasture. And that’s if it gets that far… I see fireworks coming between Fulmer and Pruitt; that’s two personalities that really are gasoline and gasoline….. Just a matter before something comes along that sets that whole thing on fire and it might just burn the whole place down with it.

      Nice. You started your post out with a disturbing praise of Pruitt’s progress..then took things down the road to the high potential of his demise due to lack of progress. You ended it with a wonderful Revelation and prophecy of fire and brimstone.

    “I can’t remember what I had for breakfast last week.”

    Well, if you had breakfast with Fulmer it was probably something like a dozen donuts, 4 omelets, a side of bacon and sausage…

    Fulmer is gonna be busy with the blackface scandal at UT for the next few days.

    I can’t fault Pruitt for wanting to focus on what he has a chance of affecting, rather than wallow in the stuff he no longer can control. A really smart guy in the class aged of me in law school told me once, “when you walk out an exam, quit worrying about it. You either passed it or not, but you can’t do anything about it now. Worry about the next one, that’s the one you can still do something about.” Pruitt didn’t go to UVA, but that sound suspiciously like about the same theory.

    FWIW, what else is he supposed to say?

    I’m still shocked they won at Auburn. I didn’t think they had three wins in them. They’re going to be a tough out if nothing else.

    The worst thing that could happen to Pruitt happened, FULMER. He wants that head coaching job again “and damn the torpedos” Pruitt would be better off sleeping with a Cobra than having Fulmer as his boss. Mark my words the Fulmer snake is going to come back to bite him
