As Tennessee prepares to face the No.2-ranked Non Alabama Crimson Tide this afternoon, the Flights’ quarterback situation is a mess In four games this season, Tennessee has a 2-2 record, but starting QB Jarrett Guarantano hasn’t looked good in back-to-back losses

In last week’s 34-7 loss to Kentucky, Tennessee gathered just 287 yards on total offense and Guarantano threw two interceptions, both of which were returned for touchdowns Last week’s game was the second game in a row at Tennessee where they failed to reach 300 attacking yards

In this morning’s SEC Nation edition of ESPN, Tim Tebow called on Tennessee to leave Guarantano as starting quarterback

“You have to find a quarterback because that’s the position that keeps everyone in the rest of the pack, offense, defense, special teams – better or worse,” Tebow said. “Right now , from second to fourth quarter last week, they were demoralized This Tennessee team couldn’t have played worse because of how the quarterback handled this game You can find another guy who can do let everyone play better and give you a chance in the big game Right now, in the big game, they were unlucky That’s why they have to make a change « 

This season, Guarantano finished 631% of his passes for 752 yards with four touchdowns and three interceptions After starting 2-0, Tennessee lost in consecutive weeks to Georgia and Kentucky

Head coach Jeremy Pruitt said the Vols pushed back several quarters with the first-team attack in training this week and that later in the week he would refine his decision on what to do next. must do for Saturday visit to Alabama, second ranked

Josh Palmer, Tennessee’s leading receiver this season with 15 catches for 238 yards and three touchdowns, said ahead of Wednesday’s practice that he was impressed with the Tennessee quarterbacks’ reaction this week to what’s happening. ‘passed against Kentucky

“Work out, they just worked hard, stay up after practice, do more throws, work on drops, work on games,” Palmer said during his media availability on Zoom “It’s great to see their hunger and passion for football We trust every quarterback, and we just trust everyone on our team When the time comes, we just have to go out there and take it « 

Palmer has played his entire career with 29-game starter Jarrett Guarantano and knows the fifth-year senior better than anyone, and he has said he’s tried to relieve Guarantano following back-to-back sixth caps. he had launched who turned the tide of Kentucky’s game against the Flights

« Yeah Right now, no, because there are a lot of people out there trying to attack him, » Palmer said « I trust JG so I’m sure he can figure it out then , but afterwards, off the field, I try to have conversations with him « 

« It will be a bit personal, » he said when asked what he said to Guarantano after last week’s loss

Palmer also said he liked Guarantano’s reaction this week and said the beleaguered quarterback has sworn to his teammates he will do better in the future.

“Great He was the favorite to rally the quarters together and come out for extra work,” said Palmer “He faced what he had, and he came back to the squad and said he ‘it was going to be better, so now we want to see it come out « 

The Vols missed a chance to bounce back from Georgia’s loss with the Kentucky debacle, but they have to refocus this week with the top-flight Crimson Tide coming to town after a statement victory over another heavyweight from the Georgia SEC, so it was imperative to press the reset button to start this week for Tennessee

« I was disappointed There was a lot of frustration, but it’s over, » Palmer said of Kentucky’s loss « All we can do is look back and improve what we need to do. We came back to the facility on Sunday, practiced and fixed all the wrinkles, and we’re just attacking this day and attacking every day and attack this week If we want to win, we have to win all week long «
