After a poor performance in practice, angered Tennessee coach Butch Jones decided to cancel his players media interviews on Monday. Per NFL.com's CFB 24/7:
Nine players had been scheduled to talk. Instead, Jones did all the talking.
"Everything is based on merit. Today, I will be the one speaking to the media. Our players are going to earn the right to talk to the media," Jones said. "It's an honor and a privilege to represent this great football program in the way we practice. Right now, we have to stop using youth as a crutch, or as an excuse. It is what it is. It's where we're at in the program. Nobody cares. Our opponents don't care."
The Vols will continue practice on Tuesday night at 7:10 p.m.
