We have had a few that’s left our program, but you will figure out who wants to be a Tennessee Vol and who don’t.”I can tell you this: I want to. I know the standards and expectations that we have and the men on our staff and the character that we have. You will see the best of the players at Tennessee throughout the year.”Tennessee lost its season opener 38-30 to Georgia State, then fell to BYU 29-26 in double overtime Saturday.”The way I look at this, the last two weeks are over with,” Pruitt said. “We had 60 minutes to change the last two Saturdays at Neyland Stadium. We have to move forward. Did we improve the first week to the second week? Absolutely. We have to continue to do that because we have a young, inexperienced football team.”We have a very high ceiling and we are not there yet — a very high ceiling. We are going to continue to improve and get better. We have lots of opportunities this season. It will be on us to create those opportunities.”AutoplayShow ThumbnailsShow CaptionsLast SlideNext Slide
