“I think Jeremy forgets sometimes he’s the head coach of the University of Tennessee, he’s on national television. He needs to act in an appropriate way.”

To be clear, Finebaum was not calling for Pruitt to be fired. He was simply calling on the beleaguered coach to act with semblance of dignity.

“I’m not saying it’s a fireable offense,” Finebaum said.

“Because it’s not, it’s just one more thing that you look at in his overall resume, and you wonder how much upside does this guy have.”

As it stands, Tennessee now sits at 2-5 for the year with three consecutive losses coming to teams ranked in the top-10.

Things won’t get any easier for Pruitt and Co. this week, unfortunately, as they’re scheduled to take on the team that ended Georgia’s undefeated run – South Carolina.
