Tennessee head coach Derek Dooley
Tennessee head coach Derek Dooley is on the hot seat, and he acted like it a bit on Thursday.
He tried to be as gracious as possible when answering those questions.
"It's been a tough four years in Tennessee," said Dooley. "I know, of course, the SEC has enjoyed taking advantage of our tough times. But there's a nice mood on our team right now that you're not going to have Tennessee to kick around anymore."
His quarterback, Tyler Bray, answered it a little bit more colorfully.
"I don't know about our coach being on the hot seat, but our team is on the hot seat," Bray said. "We haven't played like we should have."
Other than that, the Tennessee contingent didn't give us much to work with.
