Well first off what is “TheBigLead” anyway? I’ve seriously never even heard of that site until this article.
Second this guy clearly has no idea of what’s happening in the SEC outside of maybe Bama and LSU. But even then it’s clear he don’t actually watch any of the games as he would’ve known that last week we put a legitimate fear into bama. Also if he followed the SEC at all he would have to know that even with a QB carousel we are becoming a legitimate team as the year has progressed. Pruitt is currently on the exact opposite of the hot seat and he was never legitimately on it to begin with as this was only his second year and first with a class that was entirely his.

Good point. Never heard of the big lead before either. For whatever reason it just popped up on my google news feed. It's still pretty funny and obvious the writer ain't got a clue about Tennessee football. Apologies for giving this "sports journalist" undeserved clicks.

“The Vols have not had a good year, and Pruitt doesn't have much of a leash right now. This won't help his case to stick around.”

Actually.... it kinda does
He's got it 180 degrees backward. One of the knocks on CJP during the opening debacle of the season was the fact that he had no fire. The past two weeks have erased that point.

On a side note. When Pruitt goes ballistic it seems to have purpose and he looks legit as a coach getting more focused and firing up the team and working refs. His predecessor otoh looked like a poser who lost his mind and couldn't lead properly.

Never, because media isn’t “media” anymore in terms of following traditional journalistic standards. Media these days have narratives and agendas and don’t just observe and report....that much is beyond obvious.
Agreed. Now it's all about the clicks. The media no longer cares about truth but rather internet traffic. Money. Follow it and you'll .... Point made I'm sure.
