Jeremy Pruitt calls out fans at Spring Game
« on: April 21, 2018, 04:09:03 pm »

Jeremy Pruitt: Our fans today were like our football team. Some were here and doing great, some weren’t here for legitimate reasons, and some should have been here and weren’t. That sounds just like our team.

First year HC who wasn't first second or third choice?  OK move or if fan interest isn't where it needs to be give the fans a reason to get excited?

Jeremy Pruitt’s scalding opening statement: some Tennessee football players ‘flat-out quit’


Quote
Pruitt’s opening statement:

“The big thing out there to me is you see some guys competing pretty hard. They may not be doing things perfect, but they are headed in the right direction, something you can build off of.

“And then, I saw a couple of guys out there [Saturday] just flat out quit. You can call it what you want to, but I’m going to say they quit, because that’s what I saw.

“Obviously you look at the stat sheets, one team rushes for 134 yards, and one team rushes for 14 yards. Is one team that much better than the other one? I don’t think so. I’ve watched them practice for 14 days.

“Is one team that much worse than the other one? No, but there was some guys that went out there and competed and tried to do the best of their abilities and some guys, that isn’t what they did.

“You can look at it all the way down. Total yards, third-down conversions, so after 15 days to me, for some of the guys that’s disappointing, very disappointing.

“It probably tells you who they are. It’s probably a good indication of who they are. So you’re going to put 14 days into it, and some guys are not going to compete, it doesn’t say much for them.

“Some guys rose to the occasion [Saturday], so that’s a good thing. We have to figure out where we’re at with some of these guys. The thing is, in a couple weeks we’ll have a bunch of guys off the injury report and we’ll have the 14 new guys there and maybe more.

“Some of these guys that don’t want to do it, and don’t want to do it right all the time, they will just be watching. “

RELATED: Jeremy Pruitt loved the Vol Walk, but he called out some fans along with team

Quote
An announced crowd of 65,098 took in the action. Pruitt seemed content with the number, but called out the Vols fans who failed to show up at Neyland without a valid excuse.

“It’s kind of like our football team, for the fans,” Pruitt said. “The ones that were here, I’m proud they were here. They’re fired up. They’re ready to get going. OK? And then there were some people that weren’t who that had legitimate reasons. They couldn’t be here. And there were some people that weren’t here, that … why weren’t they here? It’s kind of like our football team. I think we all need to look in the mirror and see who we want to be.”

Pruitt will be the coach that buries the program for a decade thru lack of on field success and fan apathy.

Raising the bar for the fans? At a spring game? When they already had 65k?

Hmmm...ok.

65 K for a team that didn’t win an SEC game last year is pretty good ..

Yes. But could have been a lot better. Raise the bar I say.

Read on a Tennessee message board that, like all "announced crowds", the 65k was a bit over the top.  Actual butts in seats was closer to 45k - which is still pretty dang good for a team coming off 0-8 in the conference.

Had weather for ours been even halfway decent, our crowd would have probably been similar to theirs.  Luck of the draw; they got a Chamber of Commerce day and we got sleet and howling winds.

I know. I was thinking the same thing. I was like, "Dude. That's already happened. Did this guy miss the Butch Jones era?"

Sunny with temps in the low to mid 70's made for a nice day in Knoxville, for sure.

Don’t confuse “discussing”with actually being worried. It is the SEC Sports forum, by the way.

Train wrecks are hard to divert your eyes from.

Seriously, I hope you guys get it together and become a factor in the East again.  But you'll have to stop getting in your own way to do so.
