Here's what Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt had to say after losing 48-17 to Alabama this past weekend, giving the team their third loss in the 2020 season...

“Nobody’s more disappointed than the people within our program, I can assure you,” Pruitt said. “It’s the reason that I wanted this job, is because I understood the passion, the energy, the expectations of Tennessee football. When I took the job, I knew exactly where it was at — exactly — which is why I wanted the job. I wanted this job because I wanted to get it where it’s supposed to be. It’s a helluva challenge, and I’m glad I took the job, I’m excited about being here.
“I’m not discouraged. The people in our program are not discouraged. I know where our program’s headed, and we’ll get there.”
“That game looked like last year’s game and the year before and the year before,” Finebaum said on WJOX FM. “I think that’s pretty pathetic when that’s the best you can offer to your fan base after getting your head knocked around for four hours. But hey, give him another raise.”
