Tennessee Vols head coach Jeremy Pruitt inherited a terrible situation at UT, but he’s avoided commenting on what the previous coaching staff accomplished (or didn’t accomplish) in Knoxville.

Until Thursday.

Pruitt told a gathered crowd, jokingly, that Tennessee would “score more than they did last year”.

My goodness, someone should go check on Butch Jones and make sure he’s ok after that.

The Vols scored 19.8 points a game last season, which was 119th in the nation. That’s about as bad as it gets.

Pruitt doesn’t have a lot of upgrades on the offensive side of the ball that will be available to him in 2018. And he has to deal with the the loss of Tennessee’s best offensive player last season — running back John Kelly.

If the Vols show significant improvement on offense in 2018, then offensive coordinator Tyson Helton and the rest of the offensive staff deserve every accolade that gets tossed their way.

Tennessee will get their first chance to show off an improved offense on September 1 against West Virginia.
