Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt visited with our JImmy Hyams for a 1-on-1 interview on Tuesday at SEC Football Media Days.

He covered a lot of different topics including Pruitt previously saying late last season that the team didn’t win because it didn’t fight hard enough and if that bothered him.

“Well that’s not the team’s fault. That’s my fault. That’s my job to get them to do that and we didn’t do that like we had at times. That just goes back to having relationships and believing in a cause. If you have a relationship or you have a passion for who you’re playing for and you believe in what you’re playing for then it’s a lot harder to not give your all.”
