Tennessee football kept some things close to the vest at 2019 SEC Media Days. Here are five things we didn’t learn from the Volunteers.
You knew this would be somewhat of an issue when Jeremy Pruitt took up 23 of his 30 minutes with his opening statement. He had a clear objective of trying to avoid revealing certain things about the Tennessee football program.
On that front, mission accomplished. However, it wasn’t because he was able to avoid being asked about certain things in every case. Pruitt just simply dodged the question in a blatant manner at times or could not give an answer.
Regardless of the reason, Tennessee football left a lot of things still open coming away from SEC Media Days. You obviously don’t expect to learn everything or even most things about a program at such a circus of an event.
However, there are still numerous questions about the Vols that date back to the start of the offseason and still haven’t been answered. With SEC Media Days being the de facto start of the preseason, it’s actually a bit shocking that some of them haven’t been answered.
In this post, we’re going to look at some of those questions that remain open. Our breakdown includes personnel questions, schematic questions, health and standing with the NCAA. So yes, there’s a ton of range related to this when it comes to the Vols.
The answers to some of these questions may dictate the results of the whole season. But there was nothing to take away related to these things from the event this week after the Vols took the podium on Tuesday.
So what are the things we all still want to know? Did Pruitt just dodge questions about them, outright not discuss them, or does he truly not yet have an answer? Find out what we apply to each one in the five most important things we didn’t learn about Tennessee football at 2019 SEC Media Days.
