In Knoxville, just wait ’til next year.



I’m waiting for the first pundit to ask if Tennessee has to beat Vandy in order for Pruitt to keep his job.

    Was he passing a joint around as he said this?

    Last night was the closest score on that list, so hopefully Phat Phil is drawing up another contract extension as we speak.



    He covered the 17, so there is that.

    “Pruitt said he talked to the team after the game about finding ways to make up that difference”….the only way to physically make up that difference is to go and play for the team in the other locker room…on the field, they are over matched…

    Doubt they fire him this year, still paying too much for their past sins (hires). Probably strapped for cash. Can remember in the early 2000’s when they were operating in the red.

    Thinks he sticks around for next season, it will be interesting to watch.

    When they won it all in ‘98 they had players from everywhere.

    “ There were players from 12 different states in the starting rotation – Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Illinois, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. In fact, 11 of the starters were from either Georgia or the Carolinas.”

    This is a heck of a lot harder to pull off with the way Alabama, Clemson, and Georgia are recruiting right now.

      They were indeed very full of themselves coming into the season as I recall. That stellar winning streak had something to do with it. Hell, it even got Pruitt an extension with all those mighty wins to close out 2019!

    One thing Tenn is very good at with their head coaching hires: each new coach makes the fanbase miss and appreciate what they had with their last head coach.

    The funny thing is that there was actual debate, a least to a degree, about whether it would be Tennessee or Florida that would challenge Georgia in the East this year.

    I think would be appropriate for us to admit that Mullen is a decent coach, and also appropriate to acknowledge that Pruitt is a terrible one.

    To be honest, I watched the Fl-Tenn game and the plays were there for Tennessee, the players just couldn’t execute them (reminiscent of some UGA struggles). The fake punt was a perfect call and a perfect throw, the receiver just let it go through his hands. I watched their young qb miss wide-open receivers 4 or 5 times that would’ve led to big gains (if not scores). The Tennessee defense actually was respectable, their offense let them down.

      I still think Pruitt will mess up the head of the majority of QBs. He is a hot headed defensive minded HC like Muschamp and early Tubbs which will have his QB playing scared to turned the ball over which creates misses and turnovers.

    I said it before the game and it’s worth repeating. Tennessee went 3-7 against the Gators in both the 90s and aughts and have now lost 15 out of the last 16. This is not a rivalry, it’s just a regularly scheduled beat down.

    Normally, I would pull for Vandy to beat Tennessee . . . but if it means the Vols keep Pruitt with a win over Vandy, I’ll pull for Vandy to lose (can’t pull for Tennessee to win). And what’s another loss to Vandy this year anyway.
