Tennessee Football is bad. Probably awful. The Vols are 2-5 in November, and offense is the worst I think I’ve seen in a long time.
I’m a fairly optimistic person, but I’m also a fairly honest person. Tennessee football is trash. This is the worst offense I’ve seen in a very long time. I know I’m still young, but I think Derek Dooley could put together a slightly more competent offense than what Jeremy Pruitt puts on the field.
Tennessee is now 2-5 after losing to Auburn 30-17, and although we’re in a shortened season, we’re less than a week from Thanksgiving, and Tennessee only has two wins on the season.
The offense is abysmal, and if you ask me, every coach that didn’t accept the pay cut from the university should be fired. Tee Martin and Jay Graham are the only two coaches that have proved they’re good enough to keep their jobs.
I don’t know how Pruitt has gone through this season, seeing what everyone has seen with Jarrett Guarantano at quarterback and still start him against Auburn. JG isn’t an SEC quarterback; everyone knows that, yet Pruitt still thinks he’s the best that Tennessee has to offer.
Meanwhile, Harrison Bailey leads the Vols down the field for a touchdown on his first drive of the game late in the fourth quarter.
I’ve never seen a more incompetent coaching staff in my entire life. If Tennessee loses to Vanderbilt next week, then Pruitt should be fired. I know that Tennessee is a mid-level SEC team, but this should be unacceptable in our football program. Unfortunately, if the Vols do lose to Vanderbilt, Pruitt isn’t going anywhere.
We saw it with Butch Jones, and we’re seeing it again with Pruitt. Earlier this year, Pruitt got an extension before proving he can be a coach worth that extension, and now we’re paying for jumping the gun and will be forced to stick with Pruitt for at least another season or two.
Tennessee has scored two touchdowns, 14 points in the second half over the past five games. To reiterate that, Tennessee has scored two combined second-half touchdowns against Auburn, Arkansas, Alabama, Kentucky, and Georgia.
I hope Saturday night’s collapse was enough proof for Pruitt to finally move on from Guarantano. Tennessee fans have only been asking for it for a year and a half, and they might finally get their wish after it’s too late.
So far, through three years, the only thing Pruitt has proved is he can consistently recruit at a high level. Slightly higher than Butch Jones. Putting that onto the field, on the other hand, the defense has looked alright but the offense has not been as good as they were expected to be.
Tennessee won’t have a winning season in year three with Pruitt, they won’t be going to a bowl game, and they could finish the season with their first two-win season in program history. Since Clay Travis mentioned it, hey Hugh Freeze, you up?
