Tennessee Issues Statement on Termination of Nine Employees and Jeremy Pruitt
"Tarrant tennessee. No parting of the ways. No resignation fired. Jeremy pruitt after an internal investigation the chancellor of the university chancellor plowman earlier today the personnel actions. We are announcing. Today are an indication of the gravity of what we've discovered today. Athletic director fomer and i issued termination letters to the following assistant. Football coaches brian. Nita meyer and shelton felt also four members of our on campus football recruiting staff additionally our director and assistant director of football player personnel and finally a football analyst quality control coach. So what are what are Council has told us is it. We're looking at level one and level two violations. I don't know yet yet. Exactly how many or exactly the specifics of it the chancellor earlier today and we have the live coverage here blake top. Mayer has covered the story from the beginning and he joins us early evening from knoxville blake. Good evening thanks for being with us and before we get to specific just describe. What this day has been like in knoxville. Well obviously the big news that we've been waiting for call for a probably at least a month now and in the the question for at least the lack last week or more has been. Is jeremy Going to get outright fired for cause or is he going to get fired with a settlement for reduced by out. I mean i. It felt like inevitable that a coaching change was coming. And we've got the answer today. That pruitt's being fired for cause. Tennessee does not intend to pay him. One cent of his twelve point six million dollar buyout also included in the four. 'cause firings Were systems. Brian eater myron shelton felton in the termination letter to jeremy pruitt tennessee chancellor plowman outlined six four. 'cause provision of jeremy pruitt's contract University believe he violated and of course all stems to be ongoing investigation into sweeping recruiting if violations That have occurred or are believed to have occurred within tennessee's program during pruitt's watch like so many things unpack the chancellor said. She threw her own program under the bus. And i understand the tendency to pile on but having covered many of these before as you have. That was really unprecedented address. That if you don't mind it's obvious that the chancellor is frustrated beyond frustrated with the the amount of malfeasance that i think she sees within the football program. I mean these. I think it's fair to call these sweeping violations. And what she believes they're going to be major violations. stemming from the football program She she mentioned that she was stunned. By both the number of interactions and the number of people involved in the infractions. And so you know. It doesn't leave tennessee in a great position to come out on the other side of this and say you know hey. Nca take it on us there. There really wasn't that much bad going on here. You know you've seen a lot of athletic departments kind. Play that card with the ncaa play hardball with the ncaa and say that they weren't breaking rules. I think tennessee is is quite clearly taking me approach of Of admitting its its mistakes. upfront here Firing the people that believes are responsible for the mistakes and then going forward is going to have to pivot and try to likely self imposed penalties and hope that that can fend off Some of the harshest punishment from from the ncaa but it does leave it in a difficult scenario here as it goes forward not only with the ncaa but as it tries to hire and athletic director and it tries to attract a football coach.
Vols firing Pruitt with cause after investigation
"Butch jones suddenly looking better. Jeremy pruitt gone today. John joining us. These senior sports editor at aol dot com and john. It is great to have you with us. We've talked about the possibility that pruitt would be gone. He is now gone. Fulmer out as well. Your reaction another stunning day on rocky. Top back on again paul. You know. I think that the part that i guess is maybe the most surprising to me is the phil fulmer component Because as you know we talked about the past you know there's obviously been you know. Rumors swirling about tennessee. Possibly moving on from jeremy pruitt for a while. I think a lot of people in the industry thought when that first report came out that tennessee was looking into Potential recruiting violations under pruitt that was signaling that they would like to fire pruitt with 'cause a four forecast which you know they've made very clear that is what they are doing. The former component is a little different because he is such legendary person with that blake department From his time as a football coach and you saw today in that press conference just the these university leaders really going out of their way to praise him and talk about how he's at tennessee. Ledge all those different things. So i think you know fomer kind of getting pushed aside Calling it a retirement. But i think there's a little more to that is probably the most interesting component of this to me because now it means you not only have to fire new. Find a new football coach but you also have to find a new ad. Do you think john. It was the contract extension. That former gave jeremy pruitt attorney was the final tipping point for him. I would imagine it's probably a lot of different you components to it because you know hey we have to remember this. Was you know fomer higher to begin with you know as that whole crazy. Coaching search point out and former becomes. Ad then hires jeremy pruitt. I also think. I mean if you were watching that press conference today paul. You know felt like you know so. It's still in some ways defending pruitt. They're asking him about how pruitt would be remembered and he talks about how you know recruiting had been good Which is obviously ironic considering that they fired him in part because of recruiting violations and fired nine people in total also tied the recruiting department But also just the way that he was talking about how pro had rebuilt relationships and all these different things it felt like to me at least that former was not out on pruitt as a higher to that point. So you know part of it could have been simply that you feel wasn't ready to move on from pruitt and it s part became what we're gonna make just wholesale changes here and i think if you remember paul you know one of the reasons why earlier in the year before we knew about all these recruiting violations. I was always a little skeptical. Pruitt getting fired in part because it would reflect poorly on former. And i didn't think four would want to move on from his higher Like you said he just gave an extension to after only three seasons as the head coach

"I don't know how much of that is trying to go uncover some get out of jail free card. I don't know how much of that is trying to save some paychecks, but there seems to be a lot of it going on right now. It's unfortunate for Jeremy Pruitt because there have been situations that have happened like this with other schools, not just in the SEC, but all around college football. What usually happens usually hunker down. You usually get your legal team in there. The 80 gets behind the head coach and you do whatever you can to fight it. You try to minimize it, and you'd probably try to get out in front of it. I mean, we see Ellis. You hadn't dealing with anything near this right now from recruiting violations standpoint, but they're already trying to get out in front of some things so most schools would handle it that way. Tennessee seems to be handling that the opposite way. And to me, I think that there are people that have been employed there. They're working their their kids that are on scholarship there. That is unfortunate for them because this is going to drag This is not going to be something whether they decide to fire Jeremy with cause for some good reason in March or whether he got to go out to the next season. This is not going to be right for the kids that are playing football there for the next year. 234. Whatever it is, they're the ones they're gonna pay for this. And the adults that should know how to manage themselves and now have a handle. Things are not taking that into consideration. So if you're Phil former, what would you do? If you Jeremy Pruitt? What would you do? Well, I think if I was Jeremy Pruitt, I would ask me this is just me and again their details to this and that I don't understand. And I don't know. But based on what I do know, I would. I would ask for a low number. And I would say, what would it take for me to walk away? I will. I will turn my back and leave right now. But it's gonna take a check and what Tennessee is trying to do because they've got athletic department financially is in some trouble has been is they're trying to make that happen without writing any check or giving any dollars away whatsoever. So I think that's your disconnect right now. And as we know When people begin to fight over money and lawyers get involved. That's when things get ugly, murky and things tend to get drawn out. So if you're Tennessee, obviously, I mean, I understand you think you can get out of this with nothing, but is it gonna be worth it? Give me worth dragging it out. It's gonna be worth putting things into the public eye is gonna be worth the legal side of things. They're gonna take place with this. I don't know the answer to that. But it feels like no on dime Always. And I mean, I've started, you know, said this when you guys when we talked about Gus Malzahn it all burn. I'll say it with Jeremy into the sea or stay with anybody else that we talked to that fills in this situation. If you know you're going to get rid of a guy just do it. What are you waiting for? What's what's the point? Man? It's we're still going to talk about you saying that it wasn't right. We're still gonna talk about you saying they deserve better, And that's okay. That's fine. But if you know you're going to do it, just make the move. Just go. I don't know what a lot of schools are waiting on. I do think I know what Tennessee's waiting on. That again becomes where things were very unfortunate and where this thing's probably gonna get really ugly. So cute. Look at the SEC. Never great stuff by him, always joining us and Freddie and Fitz Simmons on ESPN Radio, the ESPN app and excellent channel 18. I will talk about this when it comes to Jim Harbaugh. And like, he said, he's part of the discount rack now making only apology for a million dollars a year, as opposed to the eight million he was making. After this past season. I don't have a coach must go half off. Exactly. He went from being the target to the odd job blocking that standpoint. When it comes to Jim Harbaugh, we're gonna get the Bogo, Michigan coach here. Suit one, Get one free. Oh, e don't know what kind of question's gonna ask that. I'm just gonna go to National championship Game day. Well, who do you like to know how stated an Alabama? I'm going to go Alabama because I haven't seen anybody really. So this offense down the entire season, Freddie I do know that I do believe that Ohio State will be able to move the football. I think both teams will if this Ohio State defensive line is the one that's been hit by covert, and they're down a starter or two. I think that could be very problematic. There were some issues within the previous game. You know they were down. What 11 guys. In the first game when there was no master T. You're down an offensive lineman. You're down a couple of linebackers, defensive incidents of tackles and nobody really talked about that. I think because the way they won the game, but I think that should also tell some people that Hey, there were some issues there. This thing's real. They're not making this up to try to get a quarterback healthy. I think that Alabama's offensive so balanced so difficult to defend. They can hurt you in so many different ways, And that's not even the individuals. Um, yeah, I'm going back and charge it just the two postseason games and Steve Sarkisian offered priest that movement on 9128 place and what he does by putting different players in different places and then moving them, shifting them, mostly them trading them. And the ability to get the ball anywhere on the field. After you do all those things, he's going to get you misaligned. He's going to find a match up that he likes. And the thing that was the most impressive about the Notre Dame game to me go on to the first three. Syria's of that game. And pay attention to the third person that touches the football on every play and try to locate the nearest gold helmet. When that person touches the football and out of the 1st 30 40 plays, I would say probably 25 35 of those. There was not a Notre Dame defender within 10 yards of the Alabama, the third Alabama player to touch the football sooner Quarterback in the running back, tight end or wide receiver. Start knows how to get guys in space Start knows how to get guys open. Think Ohio State's gonna have to pressure you to even try to get to Mac Jones. And if you do that you're asking for it. They don't have the dudes in the back. Nobody has the Jews in the back into cover. Tuvok to Smith one on one or makes you wanna wanna, really even Billingsley. With what he's become right now and then to be able to check down to a guy like nausea. Harris who can jump over you run through you, juke, you run around you stiff arm you I mean, there there. He has every way possible. His utility bill of ways to make you not be able to get him to the ground seems to be endless..

"Hey hey paul we are doing well. I wanted to take just a few minutes. There wanted to discuss the fury pruitt in general sturm. Okay now Ohio state obviously a great competitor and alabama will certainly have their in school on On monday night. And what are your opinions on. The impact of the wall in the event that he gets the playing the game And having said that. I don't think they would have him in practice. If he wasn't at least a potential candidate was that physician and then i wanted to speak about jerry jeremy crew as well. Yeah i think there's a reasonably good chance he'll get in the game. I'm not sure to the extent. I i think that's something you have to look at it in pre game and then you know test him out with something that's fairly simple and and you know if he if he passes that test and then keep progressing. I mean they don't need him but if he can't be in there either as a decoy. Or someone who could potentially add to the already Bountiful lineup of talent. And one. i'd give it a shot if he's willing and obviously he is okay and regarding jeremy pruitt It would seem that the the signs are out is it. Potentially he may be looking for a job. What do you think the probability is that. He may back alabama. I think he'd be leaves tennessee. I think the probability is very strong. pete golding Either has has been under a lot of fire from from fans savin continues to support him. But i think he would be hard not to scoop up jeremy pruitt who on on his worst day as a better defensive coordinator than pete golden was kind of what i was thinking in I just wanted to hear your opinions. And i appreciate the call. Thank you very much appreciated. Thank you take care of yourself. Let's continue with raw with Scoops is up next in birmingham. Hey scoops appreciate it. Paul how are you. I am great. What's what's up with. You always been a long time. It's been about a year but I also if i can. I want to jump in on that. Newspaper guys comments earlier from the post herald all the way through the radio through jocks through. Espn Through your phenomenal callers. Let me just go on and make your head a little bigger. You've always done a great job so that's one thank you for that. Thank you very much. not at all. Sure thing For gets a couple of questions do want to ask you the The the father-in-law's at home and i will call into the big fella. Can we tell him to get well soon. Because we know he's listening absolutely big fella. Yeah well soon we need you back at one hundred percents take care of yourself. Yeah absolutely thank you for that Dealing with jeremy pruitt and dan mullen Ones possibly what facing this show calls and the other ones. I don't know he's kinda called him a i don't know a recruiting spiral or or what not out of both of those. The you see one as maybe a pay job jargon or do you think both of them are facing some serious issues. That's my first question in dan. Mullins case i don't think he has any more culpability. Ny show 'cause is very serious. I think you can survive that. Especially if you're winning which. He is in recruiting well which he is Jeremy pruitt is a much more tenuous situation. Because i do not know any more than than what's publicly available but it just seemed like there. They want him out. And this is They're out to get rid of him right. So you think there's a i guess a likely both of them could be gone and gathering thing. I don't think molin is going to get pushed out You know. I mean the word mullin's looking around but that's you know the nfl coaching once. You get once you start eliminating people in the playoffs. These jobs get filled immediately. They don't have long coaching searches. So he'll either he there's some there's either as a team out there that wants him or not. I don't think it's a mystery. And if i is it is it. Is it florida. Florida next year. Yeah i i was kinda thinking the same thing there. He's got maybe one little hands they're left My last question. And then i'm going to hang up and get off here and i appreciate you giving me the the amount of time that you have Dealing with mac jones if you could put him in a wheelhouse of a former caliber. Nfl quarterback or one that's currently in the nfl. Do you have any type of competitive. That's way am i. Yeah i was asked yesterday about trevor lawrence which is a little bit easier I'm not sure anyone. I mean mad. Jones is such an i. This may sound the wrong way. But he's kind of an invisible quarterback he's so good but you don't really I don't quite look at him He i'm searching my mind right now. Gimme a second. what about you do you have any if somebody that he reminds you of something well. I seen something online the other day that i was reading and they were drawn. Some comparisons to drew bledsoe. That's a good comparison And i was just curious if you had any yourself. Yeah overnight one. He is flawless but he doesn't. I guess because we've had such a small sample size with him. I mean this right really. But i i will put that question to what are the. Nfl walks and see what they come up. Hey great to have you on and you have a good afternoon. Thank you for your time. Paul you gotta best of your father-in-law. Yeah let's check in with ron. Who is up next on.

Matt Stinchcomb previews Vanderbilt/Tennessee and talks about Sarah Fuller
"Seems like we've talked about tennessee a few times this year and i'm really interested in your view of them and Especially you know trying to shalva season with vanderbilt tomorrow. Am the next week. The schedules obviously been rearranged a little bit. Where are they right now. Bad spot Lots of season in a game vs vanderbilt non place you want to be. If you're tennessee. Football program your rewind all the way to the beginning of the season writing that winning streak and then getting a victory vs south carolina and then going on the road and putting it on missouri. I mean running the football right down their throat to the point where i think it changed. Who missouri was defensively. Going forward made him a better football team kind of steeled their resolve not to have that happen again because tennessee almost two hundred forty seven rushing yards on them in that football game. It's been the same sense. I will have to say that most people. I think observing the program even outside of the quarterback position and the circumstances that all teams have found themselves in this year. This has been really disappointing year for tennessee football. They've got two more shots at. It is a very short handed vanderbilt. Football program could get on the field georgia. It'll be interesting to see if tennessee can put together a convincing performance versus their in state conference member i. i wouldn't even call it. A rival per se for tennessee's perspective although Tennessee vanderbilt had some success versus the balls in recent years. Easy man on talk shows to blame coaches but there is obviously more to it. But as you look at jeremy pruitt and his staff. I'm curious how you would evaluate or analyze some of the decisions especially at quarterback because a lot of people feel like jeremy was was really slow to make a change. Yeah quarterbacks been an interesting adventure for tennessee to say. The least. I mean even last time out versus the florida gators harrison bailey. Obviously getting out there and then comes out of the game briefly. Brian our goes in but then. Jt shrout finishes finishes the game. We haven't seen a lot of either one of those guys. Jt shroud got in earlier. In the season jarod guarantee no Start out rough to say the least versus kentucky and what ended up being a blowout loss at the hands of the wildcats at home. Jt shrout through pass for an interception in that one football game and then to see him late last week and had some success in two series versus the florida gators. But it's it's been kind of all over the place at the quarterback position and largely been that way for two seasons. Really paul when you think about the way. They had to manage the quarterback position last year. And i would argue masterfully. Really given where. Jerry guarantee no been mentally after the gulf called. Qb sneak versus alabama. When tennessee was still very much in that football game ends up going the other direction the idea that they were able to still salvage the back. End of that season was was really impressive from a coaching standpoint. This season the quarterback position has remained an issue to say the least and the lack of consistency and even in the past couple of weeks in harrisonburg getting his first start versus florida a week ago. It's still not a known commodity. We'll talk to tennessee later on today. We've not visited with him yet to find out what exactly can expect to get their quarterback tomorrow versus the commodores one program with a six game losing streak the other with a nine game. I mean i guess there is only. There is some light at the end of the tunnel. That one team has to win. But i mean this. This is a mess. Matt i realize this late in the year and it's a stranger at that but on the other side of vanderbilt. We all know the story pretty well. The coaching change the future unknown. Give us give us your assessment of of where they are right now with with a chance to at least be tennessee. That would that would be big. It'd be huge And it's still going to be an uphill climb. I mean you look at their roster. There's no way they've got fifty scholarship players available in this football game. They're choosing to play the game. It's admirable because vanderbilt different. I think it's well documented that they're different from any of the other member institutions southeastern eastern conference but none more so than in the area of roster roster management in a year where everyone is incredibly lean. This point in time memorable would be lean anyway. Even in regular circumstances they don't have a ton of walk on. There's not a lot of kids lining up to pay that tuition to pay full freight and have that academic rigor. Oh and by the way all week you get a practice. Football games probably never see the field and likely watch. Your teammates get beat down. It's just something that a lot of people are signing up for. They don't have a lot of bodies they don't have a lot of kids to even be able to practice. So it's admirable the vanderbilt's even able to take the field tomorrow. I'll little bit hesitant to say the least. We had them last week in a would be game vs. Georgia got cancelled at noon on friday. It does appear that this game's going to get. Its admirable just enough that the commodores are going to be able to take. The field. Looked like they were turning a corner. Looked like they were going to play better. Football down the stretch. Mississippi state had an opportunity to win. Were undone by turnovers. Still a young quarterback and true freshman kin seals but there last time out versus missouri was a discouraging performance to say the least in. It'll be interesting to see what they're able to cobble together with the personnel. They have available. And what could be their final game of the season if they're not able to get back out there versus georgia we from them. What is the sarah fuller situation for. Tomorrow's best you know as we understand it She will be kicking in football game. We think extra points. is probably the likelihood of win. We will expect to see her in the contest tomorrow but she is available for place kicking duties and it seems as if the point after attempt is the most likelihood most area of likelihood that we could see on the field of play tomorrow. You know there's so much conversation about that. And and i think most reasonable people smiled and we're happy and and celebrated it but you know we both grew up in the south and there are certainly narrow views of what happened. I'm curious just to somebody who played this game at the highest level is also reasonable your thoughts on when it happened. And what you'll see you tomorrow. Yeah you know as a father of daughters the whole thing. The more opportunities The better in that regard. I will say that circumstances in many ways. I don't wanna say forced but created the opportunity for this to have happened in credit sarah fuller for wanting to take advantage of that. I do think that you know the attention that it still garnering. The fact that things have seemingly settled down around the fact that there's a female kicker in a power five game is only help not only her ability to contribute with that football team but the team in general because as we know it is unique and can be a distinct distraction in some ways. A positive distraction but distraction nonetheless and from what we gather and it makes sense that because some time has passed. And maybe perhaps because vanderbilt didn't take the field last week vs georgia. The things have kind of settled down and interestingly and rather quickly surf or has assimilated into that football team and program not an easy thing to do late in the year But i think that speaks to some of the positive elements of this as much as anything else squib make a field goal point after was the fact that she is seemingly a member of the football team and not a novelty. I think that's really where the progress would ultimately be made the fact that so much attention has been garnered around it. That's fine for the first time but if progress is actually being made and if we're opening up our eyes and broadening our rises and just playing the best potential players in these capacities then at some point in time it shouldn't be a novelty to just be something that should be expected. We're not there yet. That's not the case but we're closer this week than we were two weeks ago when she first took the field versus missouri

I think he's going to be a good head coaching this league for very long time once they figure out that they can live with an without ob j only offense side of the ball get Baker Mayfield to start to play quarterback getting the start to play it at a level where there's no excuses and it'll be a good football team but not this year not real not this year Soom but not this year Sean mcvay looking for a second trip but first super bowl championship I it's interesting because in that division NFC West is four teams right now the San Francisco Forty niners that appeared in the Super Bowl Year? AGO This seattle. Then there's the emergence of Kyla Marion Arizona Cardinals who made an appearance in my top seven. So to speak this week it in. Then when you look at the rams, the rams have been plucking alone. There was a disappointing loss obviously, the San Francisco Forty niners they had a long trip back from New York to L. A. Back to New York to play the buffalo bills a couple of weeks ago they kinda laid an egg against the bills when they could won that game very easily I like their chances I think if they could somehow win the Division get home playoff game, then they will to. Be One of my super bowl favorites as time goes on I'm just not sure yet. I see Jared Goff play at a high level and sustain that their defenses. He's the question mark for me from one Sean do another MC data McDermott of the Buffalo Bills? No I don't think the buffalo bills at all I think they've lost couple of games here recently that made me scratch my head and they struggled obviously against the New York jets this past Sunday in the jets don't have anybody that you struggle against I mean like seriously, and so you struggle against them and barely inc out a win it'd be it makes me. Wonder what type of football team you are I know Josh Allen play well at times this year defensive play well at times. So they're wild cortott playoff team that's fighting with the New England. Patriots. To Win The division I think the only way to get in the playoffs if they win the division. So that's about as far as I can have them go actually how them lose to the pats on Sunday that's the case they would have lost their last three or four games. Let's real this year. Sorry let's go quick just yes. No. To get all the teams in a pair of knows Nagy now Lord Packers yes. Yes. Verbal, Titans. Yes who and the last one. Tom Brady said coach, Bruce Arians, yes. Because the first name that you mentioned before you mentioned Bruce Zane. You mentioned Tom Brady Tom, Brady, who maybe the coach and or the general manager depending on. Key you don't think the titans can do it. No I mean depend upon matchup there are a lot like Baltimore they play defense, they run the ball but if they fall to four behind, do I really really in the playoffs not in the regular season believing Ryan Tannehill to answer the bill I mean I don't got them pretty far last year one game that you see when he had that throat. Did. You see when he had a in the playoffs you just yeah. Okay. Who is the best team in the? Key J. N.. Z. On twitter your responses next. Jay will and Subic? PODCAST..

"Dr Pepper. Today Paul I want to start a little bit serious here big ten a little bit different than other leagues. If you test positive as a player, you're out three weeks. There's no by so that means three games. That's almost fifty percent of your season. So here come the Wisconsin. Badgers they're starting quarterback Jack Cohn out with a foot injury. So they start the highly touted grammar Friday he balls out against Illinois looks fantastic. He tests positive and then his backup chase wolf test positive. So now Wisconsin heads to Saturday Halloween game with the huskers with Danie Vanden bloom their fourth quarterback they might have to play before their second game of the season begins Paul what do you make of this? Well this is what happens when you cancel the season on August eleventh soon, and then you come back and the president of the big ten, which we all know did not want to have college football, and then they voted eleven to three against it but they were forced into by public opinion by Coaches Life Brian Day and Scott Frost, and ultimately they said, okay, we'll have it but this is the way we're going to do it. So they put teeth into the protocol that virtually impossible. To overcome and the one mistake I think with many mistakes that that. Wisconsin has made. Here's your you're supposed separate your position groups. You're not supposed to let them all together and I realized I don't know exactly what what point somebody may have picked up virus, but they've got serious problems and this was a team that looked like a legitimate contender, not a serious contender but maybe an outside contender to how state and it would be very difficult to get by know how state won the national championship five years ago or six years ago with the third string quarterback but Wisconsin doesn't have the arsenal. Paul the Wisconsin down obviously to their fourth quarterback in in the Mertz backup in. So when you look at the situation now could this game against the BRASSICA get postponed or cancelled? All. Know the only way you will cancel a game in college football is if you are below may vary league league it's usually about fifty three scholarship players seven offense of Lyman losing losing your your quarter. I mean there's somebody could always play quarterback. So I don't think that's going to be enough and as as Zubin correctly told us and clearly key you are not listening. You were putting yourself on the back for willing to dodgers to its first national title, and in most people's lives not mine but most. The. There's no by week. So if you cancel a game, you are you're cutting off. Your nose to spite your face or in your case, I would be an improvement. Okay. Okay now you get ready to get torched him. would. In Paul..

"Five bucks a month for unlimited talk text data and more see protect terms and conditions that assure you on dot com slash straight talk limitations and exclusions apply straight to Jay here a former professional athlete in Chicago that sort of had a story like this to share, take us inside key first off I guarantee you the next time Nick Foles sees Brian Greasy when he starts walking his way, he's going to have a beeline and rob so we. Thank you not today. Not Today and the only reason I say that 'cause sometimes you know there is that trust between media, my rookie year a couple teammates and I went out the night before a game went out to dinner. shocker lacks a little bit. Every professional athlete does this when you go on the road, a reporter found out that we have went out he came up to me he asked me say Jay. Teammates he just specifically asked me. He said Noah, her you out last night hanging out into the wee hours of the morning is this true me I had built rapport with him I was like you know we. had. Dinner last night we were out next day in the media comes out Jay Williams is not the leader we expected him to be he's hanging out right so there is that friction. Now I told my coaches a rookie that I wasn't now I lied wrong move on my part she just been honest with them, but still that seeped into our locker. Room, there felt like there was an issue there between my coach and myself moving forward about who can trust to about what was going on and only say that stories because sometimes when these things happen when you think that you have trust in somebody to meet immediate, you say something they paraphrase it they don't quote quote you and it becomes a bigger. Article A bigger story that we're obviously talking about today they play the saints if they lose again now, saying you start finding yourself in a really weird situation of your nick foles you went from being disabled to all of a sudden. Are you the right person for this position? Is The play calling? Is it Matt Nagy? Is You against your head coach? It just leads to a really we're conundrum moving forward I would think that it nick foles said in that interview we didn't play the entire clip, but they have free production meetings. So I would think that the conversation took place in pre production meetings and when pre production meetings we've all been in them there's multiple people in the room is not like. One person in the room that you're having a conversation with. So if Nick foles said what he said I'm sure more than just Brian Greasy would have that to back it up to say we when we were talking to him the other day. So the crew true true. Yeah. So if that's the case, then it's more than just Brian Greasy that her nick foles if nick explained it, that way are the when you look at it though there's There's all sorts of plays that are called. There's plays as designers plays communicate with before games during games sometimes, coaches necessarily You know necessarily feel the game about what the players should be that they're calling at that particular time. I wouldn't think that you know based on scouting reports that you get Scotland report is basically they're matching plays with what coverages in front they think a team is going to run at that particular junction at a game or that particular part of the field down distance all of those sorts of things. So they got a wealth of information to help. Nick foles out. The best thing for Nick foles to do is if there's Things that he's not comfortable with is to get out of it audible out of it all the time I'll let the coaches. No, I don't like to play that way. You won't be putting these situation. He was last night. We should quickly mention for those that aren't familiar. Obviously, this is something as US three in the media for a long time just to open it up to give you the context while I'm not Portland media. A pre-production meeting essentially is an opportunity for the analyst play by play guy, the sideline reporter, the producer director everybody that's integrally involved in the production of the broadcast to talk to the players involved. Sometimes, it's not odd for a coach to tell you what some of the early plays that are going to be run. As long as you keep those things a secret, it's normally done the day before a game. So the majority of games in the NFL played on a Sunday the production meeting would happen on Saturday in this particular case, the bears and the rams on Monday. So Greasy and full spoke on Sunday night, and obviously what is forthcoming and what said in those meetings is a direct. Reflection on the amount of trust you have between the two parties. If you're Steve Levy and Bryan Greasy, Louis Riddick and you see the Pats, the of the packers are a team that's on Monday night football all the time you gain a higher level of trust and report again, Paul Finebaum on the way in three minutes big issue in the big ten huge issue actually our poll question this morning.

Jeremy Pruitt Compares Tennessee to 'Titanic' After 2 Players Leave Team
"The biggest story of the year to date in the SEC has been in Knoxville where Tennessee inexplicably has begun. Oh into Jeremy PRUITT. You heard a minute ago at his press conference but the biggest story in Knoxville today wasn't what he said at his press conference but what he said at the UH the Knoxville quarterback club John Adams joining US longtime columnist in Knoxville Knoxville John. Thank you for being here. Let's start with the the line at the the the quarterback club where he I'll let you fill in the blanks but he made some reference to the titanic good afternoon. Call I it should be in a coaching handbook somewhere where to a message to a struggling coach never bring up the titanic because we know how that story ended in Jeremy Pruitt with speaking to the quarterback club today. I wasn't there but he compared Tennessee to the titanic but he was relating it to a couple of players. quit the team last week. neither one was a prominent player they quit the team to loss to Georgia. Stay in. He compared that to the mice on the titanic running through the top of the ship which I think is a pretty good idea if I'm about I don't want to stay down there to bottom and drown at least get up to the top and maybe jump off if the boat and freeze to death but that seems like a better ending to me but I it just shows a lack of savviness so I think you just don't want to bring up the titanic padding because when people think about that Tadic they don't think about my think about an iceberg and people dying so I thought it was really odd. I I always thought they were rats too. But what do I know the difference between mice and Rafael you say my or I say my. Can you say rat so yeah okay. I thought it was too. That's it's getting a little too. Maybe maybe Jeremy say such a student of literature he was thinking about Steinbeck and of mice and then Maybe ending either by the way because of my thing coach okay. Let's get to the real the real crux of the issue John. I didn't think you would be in the situation where you're writing columns that people are studying examining trying to figure out where we're this program is and and she is a change imminent. I ask you I mean how bad is it. Where does this program go from here well. I I mean I think this is the worst right and there's been a lot of bad times he'd go back to two thousand and eight when Tennessee lost to Wyoming in a foreign aid. UCLA team and that's he's Got Phillip. Fulmer fired his coach but but to me despite what is what all is gone on coaches haven't lost two Sun Belt Conference team Georgia's state. It's a program that's ten years old and it's picked to finish near the bottom or at the bottom some of the sun belt. East so then the follow up that with a shocking loss the nature of the Paladin folded there the end to at best a mediocre a yoke. Byu Team MANHANDLE IN THE SECOND QUARTER GETS IN THE SECOND HALF AGAINST UTAH so no. I think you're at the bottom and I think it's fans. You can't help but look ahead and you wonder how can finish C. D. C. Gay okay you expect it to be Chattanooga this week an FCS program but beyond that you start looking at thank who'll Tennessee beat and what happens if Tennessee is one in six and I think that's a a reasonable projection at this point in Tennessee is one in six. How many people are showing up for these Games aims. I just think it would be a really bad look and it would be the critical stage program with day and it starts this week. noon game against Chattanooga. I I haven't

"So you can't jump to conclusions. But by all accounts sounds though to a does have a slight lead. That would be slightly. Base to on what the defense going to need to is likely to turn the ball over more than Jaylen. We probably understand that, but with high risk comes high reward and with the growing pains this defense might have in the early going, knowing all the different pieces they have to break into specially in the secondary. You might need a few more points on the office of side and two in granite. What is a very small sample size has proven the ability to be able to do that and score a lot of points and score them in bunches by way of big place to the air. We, we had been baby on from Dallas earlier today. He he said, who on Ben baby? Alvin baby. Okay. Big baby. I've used to work with. Okay. To quickly. He felt like stark was going to win the job. You agree. That's the way I've felt since spring. Now talking to people that have gone to practice, they're actually quite surprised that it's as competitive as it is Kellen mon- by all accounts has done a really nice job this fall when I was there in the spring though, and just watching starkville and looking at his talent and looking at the most recent game because you're only as good as your most recent game. And I don't include the spring in spring in is a wash, it's fun. It's it's a dress rehearsal. But if you look at the way Nick stark, oh, played against Wake Forest in the bowl game in Charlotte. He was lights out. I mean, he put up forty plus points, fifty points or whatever it was and was false in the effort for the most part. So I thought that that was a really nice foundation for him to be able to grow from just unfortunate that he lost so much time last year of development because of the injury. But he looks and resembles a quarterback that JIMBO Fisher. Would go after a six foot, three, six foot, four prototypical long, strong arm guy that's comfortable on a pro style set that's.

I was calling about the scrimmage on Saturdays and I'm glad you spoke up about anonymous sources. I've got a nominal source that was at the scrimmage who said that to threw four touchdown passes and no interceptions and Jalen threw three interceptions and no touchdown passes. So I think the writing on the wall by the way I do, I do believe that they're, he's, he's definitely spreading the the reps around. I mean, he pretty much asked you right now. Now, can you continue to do that later in the fall practice? I don't know. Well, in what you've was industries coin. If this continues. Jalen going to be badly for the second of possibly demoted to the third spot. If the young man Jones performing wealth like he did in the spring day, I don't know. These are. These are hard questions answer and by the way, just because we say something on Monday, the fourteenth of August, here's the deal. This Saturday, I believe is a big scrimmage Laird. You go to scrimmages by the way. No, Paul, I listen. I know you don't remember me. I'm the blind. God did that lands real. I sure do remember you. Yes, of course. I. Need to good to. I mean, I'm not laughing, but but it is pre she ate your candor on that. But the point is that whether this Saturday I, it's, I think it's all the all the mucketty mucks boosters are invited to the scrimmage, and let me assure you Larry. This group this group Yaps. Oh, yeah. And my friend told me that was up this this why receiver core might be the best we've had in Alabama, ten years. And he also said that new freshman incoming back which you know we're loaded in. The backfield was really impressive. Oh, one thing Paul real quickly. I've never thought I was quote Jim that call with Joe, please don't take those calls. Paul's. Now I have to agree with you on that and I and I'm trust you your judgment, Larry, but sometimes you get you, you walk down these dark roads and there's no way out. I'm sitting here going Joe. What I mean, what did you what? What do you get on the president of your fan cloak hall on the president, Nick savings fan club, and by the way you'll house they could on the death penalty. Yeah, I listen. I, I mean, the one thing about Joe, he if he doesn't like you, he mentions no words. She doesn't. He, there's, there's no effort to be objective. Well, call. Always, really thank you for taking my call and I'm headed on Lino to the blind veterans convention to mall. Oh, my good. Tell me about that. What happens out there? Well, what week over stuff that we want to try to legislate, you know, for veterans veterans. Also, we go over all the new technology that's out there would have helped blind people, you know, in the daily lives. So we'll have vendors out there that that bring in new town. I'm interested Larry. What I mean if there were. I mean, I mean, obviously there's some basic things, but what would what type of technology is out there that that would aid or or help a person in your situation? Well, one of the biggest things was the apple because it allows us to have a thing in there called voiceover which allows the text to be read to. So I can do Email right next message. Everything's basically now they got this new thing out called the ultra Cam, which it's a little thing that fits on like affair, sunglasses, glasses. It will take a photo of something and you tell what that photo like your picture. You says all hop up the next time I encountered us, he would see your face recognizing telling me Larry, you're talking to Paul five on before you spoke. It will also do that when stuff like. Like what you're in your pantry looking for, say, can't suit you pick up the cat assu they'll say, Campbell's chicken, whatever. So it's really a big deal this or came, it's called.

"And that was fact read somewhere where you know it used to be cool not to serve water during practice, and and that you know you talk about the growing back the old days. So you know things right things that happen today like they did back then a, you know, they'd probably be more all since going on. Finally, in speaking of safety, annot of a lot of coaches don't like some of the new rules. We've talked many about them, and certainly we understand what what's going on here, but do you feel like the game has has changed dramatically? Because I mean you a hard nose coach. Not that your teams are ever tried to do damage, but you certainly punish the opponent. And that was part of the game. Yeah, being physical and swim into the ball on the fence and yeah, and having your wide receivers down there and block, and you know that that was fun. Things that we sit great pride in, but I think the the game is basically the same. You know, the the way you play it. You know the no huddle and run the place to line. That's that's probably use a little more today than it was like when I was coaching. But I think the general concept of football and how his play the, you know, it's still the same. Really. Finally, what's talk a little bit about your team? The hokies certainly good start with coach went, what do you, what do you see for them this year? Well, I think he's done terrific job here. I, you know wanted is Virginia Tech container, the maybe bigger and better and and improving. I think they got the right guy there to do that. And I, you know, bud Foster's, longtime the later he's gonna have a lot of new faces on his side of the ball and and circle in the secondary. And you know, you won't wanna be pretty SETI back there. You want those. You don't want to break down in your secondary. Usually that's the long play. The skin ready to happen little. I think we're going to have to coach him up over there and and then you know they wouldn't have new group of wide receivers and Justin likes to throw the ball around there. And so how, how put the those one series think perform wells? Probably going to be a a big thing there and then a, no, they want to run the ball better. Really. Trying to work on getting a better running game to go with passing game. So it's gonna be interesting. I think it's to be a lot of interest in the team those. There's a lot of questions about team right now, but I'm sure they're going to come out and do do well coach pleasure to to have you on our best to you and we hope to see him. Okay. Hey, thanks so much for having tell you to listening to Paul finebaum show podcast. Joe is up next in Alabama. Hello, Joe, good afternoon. Paul, how y'all doing today? We are well, that's great. There's a couple of things I want to talk about. One of them. I want to mention squirrel from messy Sepe or whatever state that is. He's from, you know, he kinda Saint. It was funny about a woman hitting on a man, and you know, I shouldn't have to explain the whole situation whether there wasn't another place to go and under this to him.

I think he's plenty smart enough to figure out whether this guy should be on his staff or not, or whether his personal characteristics are to overwhelmingly negative or on fit to retain him. Well, it it it years. You're living. Serving with with. Legal case. Long, I don't. You agree or that you you think you think urban Meyer did the right thing by retaining him? As long as he did. I think it's very hard to fire somebody that you've had with you for a long time. If there's nothing in the from the judicial department in the community where you live that indicates he's really. I, if I'm in charge or if I'm not in charge and I'm not, I'm not responsible for anybody here. I'm just an employee like the next person. But if I find out that one of the people I'm working with is is abusing his wife or children or dog or a parakeet. For that matter, I'd walk into the boss's office immediately and call it to his or her attention and say, I want this guy at it or I don't wanna work with this person anymore. Sights, beautiful twenty. Comedy commonsense. Shooting of done it earlier, and that's gonna look. If you look at, if you look at the time line, I mean, this has been going on since two thousand nine. Well, you know that heat, I am sure the Smith family is not the first football coach to have marital difficulties, and he's. Pharrell difficulties. Two different things. Deal with this type of situation. It's very hard to get to the real truth and the bottom of any of this. And I think what really bothers me the most is is it's like there's blood in the water and let let's get after this cat. I. Let me ask you one question. One question here. Okay. All right. Why did Arben Meyer fire Zac Smith? It goes, he at that point, Phil teed been guilty of abusing his wife. Okay. Did Arben Meyer have all the facts then or not? I would like to think at that point he did, but he had enough facts to go to to go about firing along time, employees that have been important as organization. I don't know. There's a business executive anywhere that hasn't had similar type of ants occur, but what's different about this is you've got five hundred bloodthirsty people looking for something to talk about on the main in media or right in the paper about it. And for me, I'm kind of sick of the press always feeling there and title to answers. Employee relationships are concerned if the matter is handled internally, that's enough said and have Ohio State deal with the aftermath and the chronology about what if what should have happened, win. Win, but that aside I've got a second point and I'll get to it real quick. Few days after the championship, but ballgame, you probably you get a Jillian calls and you wouldn't remember this, but I called unit that time I made the statement then I think Jalen hurts futures. The Alabama quarterback was clearly established at halftime in that game, and all of the fans, the coaches and and buco millions of people set there and lost it and understood it. The only question was how Alabama was gonna handle his relationship from that point on, and I made the statement at the time that in spite of difficulties, accepting John cale, Perry's commitment to players I and getting them in the NBA. The one thing he did great was went up player apparently is struggling to get where he wants to go in the NBA. He will help them find another school to go to. And the way he does that. Is that lots of times he will ask the opinion, which is common public knowledge of the people that actually make the decisions in the NBA. Is there a draft slot this. This. On we're way over on top. Thank you very much for.
