Jeremy Pruitt was pleased with his coaching staff during Tennessee's loss to Georgia State in Week 1, their second straight season-opening loss after last year's demolition at the hands of West Virginia.
"The coaching staff did a good job, in my opinion, as far as in-game adjustments and coaching the guys," he said on Monday, two days after the Vols allowed 38 points and 352 yards of total offense to a Panthers' team that went 2-10 last season.
Tennessee committed only three penalties in the 38-30 loss but had three turnovers, averaged three yards per carry, and allowed Georgia State to convert 10 of 17 third downs.
"There are things that we can do that we've obviously got to do better," Pruitt added. "Our guys will get better. The more you do it, the better you get at it, and we've got a great opportunity this week."
That "great opportunity" is a home game vs. BYU as the Vols seek to avoid their first 0-2 start since losing six straight games to open the 1988 season.
