It’s amazing how much better the coaches look when the players execute. That’s not to say the coaches don’t deserve blame for the miserable start to the season, but it helps when the players execute. The game plan on both sides of the ball was tremendous, the coaching staff made adjustments, and Jeremy Pruitt had his team ready to play. It was a great day for Tennessee’s coaching staff.
