Tennessee has been a big disappointment this season. They were tabbed by many to be among the top 10 teams in the country. That isn’t happening though and you have to wonder about Jeremy Pruitt. He’s in his third season at Tennessee and he losses by double digits to an Arkansas team that has a new head coach and has been terrible the past few seasons. I won’t even bring up the loss to Kentucky.

The SEC is so cut-throat, you have to have a really bright and innovative head coach to be competitive. Pruitt is a guy who has never heard of asparagus. Maybe that’s not so surprising to some. It’s not my favorite food. Anyway, to the game, I think A&M wins this one by double digits. The Aggies are playing for a possible playoff berth and they need to spank the Vols really well to have a chance to make college football’s big dance.
