It seems like just about every writer, reporter, and talking head is upset with Jeremy Pruitt for yanking at JG’s face mask, but I’m not.
The national media and losers across the nation are upset with Jeremy Pruitt yanking at Jarrett Guarantano’s facemask after JG fumbled on the one-yard line which left everyone except for some Tennessee fans to defend Pruitt.
I’m no “Big J” journalist or anything like that, but I would like to share my opinion on the situation. Unlike every verified Twitter account throughout the college football and sports world, I don’t think there was anything wrong with what Pruitt did.
Guarantano fumbled the ball at the one-yard line after not running the play that was called, and Alabama returned the fumble for a 100-yard touchdown.
With that touchdown, the Alabama lead was extended to the point that was unreachable for the Vols, so Pruitt should be allowed to be frustrated at his quarterback for making a stupid decision.
I’m probably in the minority in this situation, but I don’t really care because it’s not like Pruitt pulled on his helmet and forcibly threw him around. He simply yanked at his face mask out of frustration.
Pruitt is a coach that has shown emotion on the sideline, and that continued after that play. For Troy, I’m sorry you’re soft and can’t handle a football coach trying to coach up a bad team as they hang with the number one team in the country.
He’s not a joke; he’s the real deal and Choppy you can head on out too. You may want him out of Tennessee, but he proved to everyone from the tri-cities to Memphis that he can coach football, so I hope you can accept the fact that he’s not taking off Tennessee orange.
For little Georgie here, I don’t have a clue who you are, but if you watched the game, then you would know that Pruitt outcoached one of the greatest coaches of all-time Nick Saban throughout most of the game. Learn some football before coming at my coach.
This tweet is one that stood out to me after the game. Pruitt is a football coach and a dang good one. Some fans doubted him because he “wasn’t one of us,” and by that, he isn’t someone from Tennessee.
He’s just a guy from Alabama that loves to coach football, and he’s really good at it. He showed as much heart as anyone in Tuscaloosa on Saturday. He had already earned my respect, but he earned a lot of respect from most who previously doubted him with his performance.
All Tennessee needs from a head football coach is someone who cares and guess what Pruitt cares a lot about this football program, and he’s been giving his all for Tennessee.
I know it hasn’t seemed like it for a lot of his first year and a half that he hasn’t been giving his all, but he has, and that just shows how bad this team was when Butch was fired.
The players are bought in on Pruitt, I’m bought in on Pruitt, and I hope you are too. Pruitt is going to be the first Saban assistant to leave and beat Alabama, and it’s going to be awesome when it happens within the next few years.
