(Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)Jeremy Pruitt and the Tennessee Volunteers could have gotten off to a better start to the 2019 college football season. And that’s an understatement.Tennessee is on the verge of a disastrous upset loss to Georgia State, as the Volunteers are trailing, 35-23, late in the fourth quarter.Expectations were decently high for Pruitt as he entered his second season with the program. The Vols were coming off a 5-7 season in Year 1, though a bowl game appearance was expected this year.It’s early, of course, but things are not looking good for Pruitt.Tennessee fans are not happy.“Building a football program in the SEC is hard but this is bad on a different level. At this point, Jeremy Pruitt does not deserve to coach this team,” one fan tweeted.“Massive red flag for Jeremy Pruitt today. I learned a long time ago not to ignore red flags. This is a big one,” another added.Pruitt, a former assistant under Nick Saban, deserves time to get things going in Knoxville. However, the panic button might be getting hit by some.Jeremy Pruitt 🤦🏻‍♂️. I have no words.— Jared Stillman (@JaredStillman) August 31, 2019Pruitt wasn’t happy with his team’s performance in the first half and things have only gotten worse since.“Well, we got a lot of youth on the defensive side of the ball,” Pruitt said on ESPNU. “Offensively, we’ve turned the ball over, put the ball on the ground a couple of times, gave them a short field right there and they stuck it in. One drive, we get a penalty and we don’t execute on third down but you’ve got to give their guys credit, they are doing a nice job.”Tennessee faces another tough opponent in Week 2. The Vols are set to host BYU at 7 p.m. E.T. next Saturday.last_img read more
