Kyle Phillips: ‘If we want this program to go to the next level then we have to do better’

KNOXVILLE – Senior defensive linemen Kyle Phillips understands what lies ahead for Tennessee (3-5, 1-4) in the final month of the season.

The margin of error is slim for the Vols in November with UT needing to win three of their final four games to become bowl eligible.

“We definitely need to try and do the best we can to win out,” Phillips said of playing Charlotte, Kentucky, Missouri and at Vanderbilt to conclude the regular season.

The 6-foot-4, 273-pound defensive lineman realizes that Tennessee needs to correct mistakes in order to have success in November.

“I think we have a good team, but we just make too many mistakes,” Phillips said. “The little things have just really hurt us. We don’t have a lot of margin for error and we have to take advantage of that opportunity to do the best we can. This program is a top ten program, and if we want this program to go to the next level then we have to do better.”
