Tennessee reminded us Saturday evening that it nonetheless has requirements.

No matter how far the Vols have fallen within the SEC, they’re not about to let some mediocre Conference USA staff come into Neyland Stadium and kick them whereas they’re down.

UT kicked again Saturday evening.

Never thoughts the uncertainty surrounding the way forward for coach Butch Jones. Or the mounting attrition that makes each beginning lineup a guessing recreation. The Vols nonetheless managed to defeat Southern Miss 24-10.

“When will Jones be fired?’’ has been probably the most requested query in Knoxville since Georgia pounded the Vols 41-Zero on the finish of September. That was the primary of 4 consecutive losses, every of which made it extra probably that UT’s coach wouldn’t make it to the top of his fifth season.
