Fulmer discusses current state of Jeremy Pruitt’s program

Fulmer even compared Pruitt’s head coaching record at this point in his career to one former Tennessee head coach.

“An interesting statistic that I found was Coach (Johnny) Majors was 14-15-1 in his first 30 games and Coach Pruitt is 15-15 in his first 30 games,” Fulmer said. “I really think we’re a better football team than our record has shown.

“Team plays hard and I think the Auburn game was a good example of that. But we’re not taking care of the ball and protecting it like we should and we certainly haven’t gotten the takeaways that you would think a normal aggressive defense would get.”

Whether or not Pruitt will go on to replicate the success that Majors had as a head coach at Tennessee remains to be seen, but Fulmer made it clear on Vol Calls that despite the mistakes, the football program is in better shape than when Pruitt arrived in December 2017. According to Fulmer, one reason for the struggles this season can be attributed to the lack of spring practice and offseason preparation due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”
