If Pruitt is right about the gap closing between Tennessee and the teams it envies the most, he’s yet to prove it. He’s coached eight games at Tennessee against its three biggest rivals: Georgia, Florida and Alabama. He’s never come within 22 points of any of them, and three times, his teams have lost by more than 30. His average margin of defeat in those eight games is more than 28 points.
Leave the damned bottle on the bar and go away.
He’s now lost 12 games by at least 21 points, the same number as Butch Jones and Derek Dooley combined.
You know, maybe Fulmer is trying to engineer a return to being UT’s head coach.
