Maybe there is something to this research that high-fives and fist bumps matter for moral, but one place where people go to “research” Butch Jones himself just took a hit.
It’s not fun in Knoxville at the moment, but Volunteers fans had a little laugh poking fun at Jones at his expense using his Wikipedia page with a good dosage of snark added in.

Every teacher in America should put this up on the screen when they tell kids not to cite Wikipedia in their research papers, but that doesn’t make this any less amusing.
It all stemmed from Jones’ comments Wednesday when he cited the Wall-Street Journal in an article about more fist and chest bumps being good for the team. Hey, whatever works at this point for the Volunteers, who recently lost one of their top players in Jalen Hurd to a transfer and have lost three straight games. Though Jones can’t control what Hurd’s parents say, he can nail down what his own team does.
Some more pats on the back shouldn’t matter this week, but they won’t hurt either. Tennessee will look to stop a three-game losing skid when they face Tennessee Tech in what should be an easy win to boost confidence a bit.
