1. What is Jeremy Pruitt hiding?
Jeremy Pruitt went out of his way to avoid taking any questions Tuesday. In his 30 minutes at the podium, the Tennessee football head coach managed to speak for 23 minutes of them, and he gave a lot of useless quotes.

From his high school playing days to his connections there that are on his current staff, he literally talked about everything. Pruitt did that and then detailed every staff member before detailing every unit, without saying much of anything in the process.
You can say what you want about that, but the Vols have a history of coaches who don’t reveal a lot. The last coach who failed to reveal the truth was Butch Jones, and he became a complete and total disaster. Why was Pruitt going out of his way to limit the amount of time he could be questioned? What is he hiding?
Sorry, but this is a big concern. Nick Saban, for all the assaults he puts on the media, usually is pretty open for questions. He’s just not always open to the most polite responses. Pruitt, meanwhile, is trying to avoid them.
Remember, this comes on the heels of Phillip Fulmer cancelling the Big Orange Caravan this summer, taking away fans’ opportunities to ask questions. So, again, what is going on at the program right now that they want to hide?
These questions are a big concern alone. Pruitt was blatantly trying to limit the questions he would be asked as much as possible Tuesday at SEC Media Days, and it hints that he’s covering up for something related to Tennessee football in light of the caravan cancellation. Being tight-lipped like that is never a good sign. So it’s our top issue.
