Jeremy Pruitt details offseason opponent preparation

KNOXVILLE — Jeremy Pruitt spoke with media for the final time before taking on Alabama.

Pruitt was asked about the amount preparation that goes into games. The first-year Tennessee head coach mentioned that preparation begins in the offseason, as early as within spring practices.

“With every opponent you have offseason studies,” Pruitt said. “We study each other in the offseason, whether it’s during February, March or April, getting prepared.

“We worked on every opponent we have on our schedule back during spring ball. We took a period of something, somewhere, just to kind of get our guys familiarized with it.”

Offseason opponent preparation also took place during the summer.

Pruitt said “you have a summer study, so you go a long ways back and look and get a lot of really good ideas.”

Tennessee is coming off a 30-24 win at No. 21 Auburn and will look to win three games with six games remaining to become bowl eligible.
