Love Ole Pruitt. The guy is definitely trending up

Following Tennessee’s 24-7 win over No. 11 Kentucky, there have been some members of the media suggesting Jeremy Pruitt should be up for SEC Coach of the Year honors. While it may be a bit too soon for that talk, if the Volunteers finish the season on a three-game winning streak and improve to 7-5 on the season, the Tennessee coach will begin to garner significant traction for the award.

Coming off the big win over Kentucky, Paul Finebaum suggested Pruitt is among his favorites to win the award entering Week 12. Finebaum also praised the jobs Ed Orgeron and Mark Stoops have done to this point of the season.

After that discussion, Finebaum was joined by the Tennessee coach on his Monday show. The first question the show’s host had for Pruitt was on how the Vols got the big win over Kentucky.

“I think for the first time Saturday our guys played a complete game,” Pruitt said. “You should improve every week, I think our guys have improved our practice habits. We may not always show that due to execution. Offensively, we blocked better. Didn’t have as many mental errors.”

Pruitt is quietly improving. I like the slow steady improvement over the quick turnaround. Slow deliberate building sets a foundation for a process and culture that can set the team to becoming competitive on a consistent basis instead of a quick fix. He is pushing the credit towards the players and players are starting to get Pruitt is just a football coach and not some political PC media darling. He will get this turned around it just seems it may take a little longer than expected which speaks volumes to how bad coach Butch Jones really was and was way over his head. He left this team as weak, non aggressive and in disarray. Keep pushing it Pruitt.
