Jeremy Pruitt knows who butters his bread.
Pruitt explained how the Hall of Fame former Tennessee initiated the recent practice adjustment and why it should benefit his players in the long run.
“Really it was Coach Fulmer’s idea,” Pruitt said after Wednesday’s practice. “I thought it was a great idea. We’ve never done this any at the other places I’ve been, but you’re talking about 15 or 20 minutes at the end of practice…”
Either he’s quickly mastered the art of sucking up, or knows how to throw the right kind of bone to keep someone off his back. Only problem either way is that it’s Fulmer we’re talking about here. If push came to shove, neither theory would matter.
Two big wins, a study in contrasts…
Somebody needs to enjoy themselves a little more.
This may be the saddest quote about a rivalry game I’ve ever read.
Damn. Just damn.
This quote from a former Vol ought to leave a mark.
Then again, Booch is pretty shameless.
Jeremy Pruitt haz a sad after yesterday’s blowout.
But it’s clear Pruitt is losing patience as he eagerly awaits a recruiting season that could help Tennessee make up some of the difference that separates the Vols and Tide.
At one point, he even wondered aloud about his own players, telling the audience of reporters, “Maybe today they weren’t good enough.”
Fulmer looked on with the same look of revulsion, simmering in the background.
Had he stuck around after Pruitt finished his news conference, he may have lost it.
I can’t help but wonder what it must be like to play for a coach (and his boss) who have basically written the team off almost to the point of contempt.
Judging from this…
… and this
… Booch appears to be a happy man. Where’s the trash can, though?
Jeremy Pruitt may not be the football genius Gus Malzahn is, but the gap is certainly narrowed when he knows what’s coming.
The Gus Bus is definitely not a stealth vehicle.
