KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee coach Butch Jones is on the verge of opening up his fifth spring football camp with the Vols, and the story lines are aplenty.
A quarterback battle that doesn’t figure to be determined any time soon will begin to play out in earnest, and a rebooted staff will get to work looking to take Tennessee to a double-digit win total.
The Vols are losing a 3-year starter at quarterback in Josh Dobbs as well as the team’s leading receiver and tailback from a season ago, but the fan base is in no mood for a rebuilding year.
Quarterback hopefuls Quinten Dormady and Jarrett Guarantano both bring plenty to the table, in terms of their talents and potential.
Tennessee has looked to keep its fans interested, but some challenging reports using questionable anonymous sources has put the Vols’ media relations staff on edge and led to less exposure for the program.
Mike Griffith and Josh Ward discussed UT’s pending QB battle as well as some of the politics taking place behind the scenes on Rocky Top in today’s podcast.
