COLUMN: Things are looking a lot better for Tennessee football at the moment, but if the #Vols ease up at all this week, Kentucky will change that: http://bit.ly/36C9p8p



--- Quote ---Having a quarterback who can’t clap to signal he’s ready for shotgun snaps because he’s playing with a broken hand is oh-so Tennessee.

Pruitt won’t say, and I don’t blame him.

If you have an unstable QB situation, you should at least be able to make your opponent think about all those guys, too.

jb's pick: UT 23 UK 20 OT

--- Quote ---Tennessee took another step toward bowl eligibility last week by notching its fourth victory of the season, a 30-7 win against Conference USA contender UAB.

Vols now need at least two wins in their final three games at Kentucky and Missouri and at home against Vanderbilt to get to six wins and clinch a spot in the postseason.

After beginning the season 1-4, Tennessee has won three of four games with SEC wins against Mississippi State and South Carolina preceding the UAB victory and reviving the bowl chances for the Vols, who were home for the postseason in each of the past two seasons.

Tennessee's bowl hopes very well may hinge on Saturday night's game at Kentucky (7:30 p.m., SEC Network).

Though some projections have left Tennessee out of their bowl projections, the Vols remain in a handful of those such projections with an expanding variety of potential postseason destinations and intriguing possible opponents...

--- Quote ---It wasn’t that long ago — when the Vols were relevant — that an ascension by former UT quarterback Jonathan Crompton changed how Tennessee fans felt about their program. If you remember, Crompton’s recruiting ranking always worked against him. He was constantly criticized for not exceeding the hype. Then, he lived up to that billing during the second half of his senior season and led the Vols to a bowl game. Now, Jarrett Guarantano seems to be following in Crompton’s footsteps.

Jeremy Pruitt was adamant after UT’s 17-13 win over Kentucky on Saturday that the Vols couldn’t have beaten the Wildcats without Guarantano’s play in the second half. He was right.

Guarantano was easily the difference in the win against Kentucky. He came off the bench to relieve Brian Maurer, the freshman who got the start. Guarantano didn’t sulk and was more than ready in the second half. He led the Vols to 14 points, completing 7-of-8 passes for 115 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Most fans had given up on Guarantano and why not?

--- Quote ---Stoops said his team and Tennessee were both very hungry teams, and the game came down to a goal line stand that went Tennessee’s way in a 17-13 victory by the Vols.

“This is an extremely difficult loss for our team,” Stoops said. “I really appreciate our team’s effort and their attitude and their preparation and their fight.”

Coming up a yard short is a tough pill to swallow, Stoops said.

“Defensively, I felt like we played extremely good the majority of the night,” Stoops said, and added that the game came down to 50/50 balls, which is Tennessee’s strength.

“That hurt us tonight,” Stoops said. “You take away some of those 50/50 catches against some very, very talented receivers and you play a solid game.”

On offense, his players made some good runs, but still have to find a way to get the ball in the end zone.
