Vols improve on day two

Posted:

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Though it was hard to hear Tennessee head coach Butch Jones after practice Saturday, the message was clear. His team improved from day one. Jones hoarse voice couldn't mask his enthusiasm for what he characterized as an improved effort from the vols.

"I was kind of disappointed in our mental effort throughout the entire practice(Friday) where as I thought today we maintained it and we built upon it," Jones said after practice Saturday.

Jones praised the play of the freshman wide receviers and the young defensive backs and talked about motivating his team after the first practice.

"You know we challenged them and, like I said, this group is extremely prideful," Jones explained. "I like the way we came back and we battled."

The vols return to the practice field on Sunday afternoon.
