Jeremy Pruitt calls out fans, players after Tennessee spring game

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee's Jarrett Guarantano has made it clear he's the best quarterback now on the Volunteers' roster.

Tennessee's only other scholarship quarterbacks are Will McBride and incoming freshman JT Shrout.

The Vols' regular season kicks off on September 1 with a meeting against the Big 12's West Virginia Mountaineers.

Pruitt, entering his first year as head coach, had some interesting words for Tennessee fans.

Said Pruitt:"Again we'll know who our quarterback is probably when we go to Charlotte about halfway through the fourth quarter".

Pruitt, who last season coordinated Alabama's defense, is looking to help Tennessee bounce back from a tumultuous 4-8 campaign, which included an 0-8 mark in SEC action a year ago. I don't think so.

"You know the big thing out there today, I mean, you see some guys competing pretty hard". He saw something he didn't like, so he said something. You can call it what you want to. Some of these guys who don't want to do it and don't want to do it right all the time, then they're just going to be watching. He accused a few of his players of "quitting" during the game. That included Guarantano, who wasn't made available to reporters all spring.

The incident claimed the life of passenger Jennifer Riordan , the first fatality on board a U.S. commercial airliner since 2009. Riordan was a Wells Fargo banking executive and well-known community volunteer from Albuquerque, New Mexico, the company said.

The orange team (led by the first-team offense) marched the ball effortlessly on the white team (first-team defense) on their way to a lopsided 34-7 win. He was named the game's most valuable player.

The white team featured the second-team offense and first team defense and was quarterbacked by sophomore Will McBride. Guarantano put up 226 yards and two touchdowns on the afternoon.

Pruitt added that Saturday's scrimmage merely reflected "one day's work" and isn't necessarily "a true indication of how spring actually went".

Fans unable to make it to Neyland Stadium for the game can check it out on the SEC Network.

Pruitt saw room for improvement in that regard as well. "I won't have to police them anymore, they'll police themselves, because they'll be so vested in the program that's paid the price, that they're not going to let any of their teammates, roommates or whoever let them down, so they'll confront them". "Then there were some people who weren't here that had legitimate reasons". And then there were some people that wasn't here, that (you wonder) why wasn't they here.

"To me, it's kind of like our football team for the fans".

Said Pruitt:"I think if you looked at it after 15 days, I'd say we would probably get about a "D".
