Tennessee football will host South Carolina SEC battle with bowl berth implications. Here’s everything you need to know. Butch Jones is still the coach of the Tennessee Volunteers, for now. Everyone, Jones included, knows that he’s running out of time. If the Vols’ head man wants to save his job he’s going to have to beat a South Carolina team that has certainly looked beatable so far in SEC play. To find that elusive first SEC win the Volunteers will hand the reigns of the offense over to a new quarterback. After trusting junior Quinten Dormady to lead the offense through their first five games.
No reason not to come right back with South Carolina after winning last week with the Gamecocks. That also means continuing to go against Tennessee. The main conversation in Vols country right now is not whether Butch Jones will be back, but rather who will be replacing him. The media has basically already fired Jones. Normally, I might expect a big effort from a team off a 41-0 home loss and a subsequent bye week to get things right. But the program is a mess, and wonder if the time off might actually additional negative. There appears to be no enthusiasm right now, and if Tennessee gets off to another bad start on Saturday, that massive crowd is going to turn on them in a big way.
At this point the Vols are desperate for an answer and Guarantano’s insertion is probably less about the quarterback battle than it is about the state of the team as a whole. Because of that, the Gamecocks have the clear edge when it comes to quarterback play. Sophomore Jake Bentley continues to do just enough to keep him in consideration among the better passers int he SEC. South Carolina enters the game with SEC wins over Missouri and Arkansas. Each of those schools figures to finish at or extremely close the bottom of their respective divisions. The sky isn’t falling at Tennessee, not yet. Butch Jones has some issues, but he also has enough talent tow in with talent alone.
