KNOXVILLE — After five games and a bye week, Tennessee (2-3, 0-2) is still in the early stages of Jeremy Pruitt building the program in his first season.

Junior linebacker Daniel Bituli went in detail of Pruitt warning his team that they will face adversity throughout the season.

“Coach Pruitt emphasized at the beginning of the season that we are going to go through adversity and we are going to face it,” Bituli said. “This is football. It is a sport as a whole and for us to be able to face adversity and stand firm to it, I think that’s the biggest defensive attribute we have as a team.”

Pruitt has displayed a stern manner since he has been at Tennessee and Bituli says his demeanor has not changed with UT facing adversity by losing three games early on.

“He really has not changed,” Bituli said of Pruitt. “He is the most consistent coach that I have probably ever met. He is as tough as any coach I have ever seen. He preaches the same thing over and over again.

“You can tell each and every day he is staying the same. He wants tough guys out there on the field and he preaches that every day.”
