Jones Admits UT’s Schedule Is Daunting

TENNESSEE MEDIA DAYSAsked about the the fact that Tennessee will face five members of last year’s top 10 in their first eight games, Butch Jones admitted that the challenge for his thin team is large:

 

“Not to sound like coachspeak, but you coach it one day at a time, one game at a time.  That’s why we have to focus on the process.  It’s gonna be a great challenge for our football team, but it’s gonna be a tremendous, tremendous opportunity as well.

That’s why this summer our strength and conditioning area is big.  That’s why I’ve been stressing depth and individuals stepping up.  Unfortunately the situation we’re in at Tennessee we’re gonna be forced to play some true freshman so they’re gonna have to grow up in a hurry.”

 

In addition to facing Alabama, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina inside the league, the Volunteers will have to travel to Oregon for an early-September non-conference matchup.
