Calls for Butch Jones' job grow louder after loss to SC

  • Vols lead 9-3 at the half over South Carolina

Vols with 178 yards of total offense, but three trips to redzone they've only come out with field goals. SC averaged 3.8 yards on 13 carries in the first half, mostly via the inside zone.

The Vols offense looked smooth to start the game, picking up a first down on two plays before John Kelly ripped off a 24-yard gain punctuated by a devastating stiff arm to nickel Jamyest Williams.

SC defensive lineman D.J. Wonnum: 6 feet 4, 251 pounds. Cimaglia nails another field goal.

The Gamecocks were 0-5 on third down and 0-1 on fourth down in the first half, scoring just three points along the way.

SC had at least pulled ahead, after a rough offensive 2 1/2 quarters.

When the final gun sounds, all football players regardless of jersey or rivalry are all brethren.

The Vols head into Saturday's crucial game 3-2 on the season and 0-2 in conference play.

South Carolina: The defense was mostly responsible for this victory, but South Carolina's offense also deserves credit for regrouping after losing running back Rico Dowdle to an injury early.

Tennessee led time of possession in the first half by over six minutes. South Carolina QB Jake Bentley saw what was going on, so he ran over, picked Guarantano off the ground and gave him the biggest bro-hug in an awesome display of sportsmanship. The redshirt freshman was 11 of 18 for 133 yards and also had 17 carries for minus-2 rushing yards.

SC has next week off before hosting Vanderbilt on October 28.
