Butch Jones says Tennessee wasn’t prepared for South Carolina

The Tennessee Volunteers dropped their third loss in a row on Saturday, falling to the South Carolina Gamecocks, 24-21, on the road. After the game, Vols head coach Butch Jones seemed to shoulder some of the blame.

With a little riddle, Jones commented on the situation.

It wasn’t that his players weren’t ready to step onto the field, but a lack of preparation overall that led to the loss.

Jones noted that the team looked strong throughout the week in practice, but they came out flat in Columbia.

Tennessee was a trendy preseason pick from a lot of media members in the SEC, but the Vols have never been able to live up to those high expectations. Now, they’ll look to re-find their footing next weekend with what should be a lay-up game against Tennessee Tech.
