Tennessee can’t move the football with their offense in its present form. If Guarantano truly is their best option at QB, that’s an indictment of Pruitt, Chaney and Weinke.
Jeremy Pruitt tells @JamieErdahl
that Tennessee will start Jarrett Guarantano today at quarterback vs. Alabama.
Brandon Johnson was really heated on the sideline after that fourth down, yelling at Jarrett Guarantano. Coaches initially separated them, but Guarantano went back up to him and calmed things down. The two had a pretty long, measured conversation about the play.
Guarantano hasn't done much wrong today.
There's still no reason to play him again today though. Let's figure out what we've got.
Alabama just put in Bryce Young.
Tennessee still sticking with its 5th year senior Jarrett Guarantano.
Brandon Johnson and Jarrett Guarantano getting after each other walking off the field and on the sideline. #Vols
Brian Maurer is in at quarterback.
Jarrett Guarantano finishes the game 13-of-24 for 162 yards and two touchdowns. He did not throw an interception.
Harrison Bailey not getting snaps here tells me that Jarrett Guarantano is going to start against Arkansas.
The year is 2043. The NCAA clears Guarantano for his 28th year of eligibility. Pruitt starts him, HE GIVES US THE BEST CHANCE TO WIN. Appalachian State 58, Vols 3
#Vols turn it over on downs in Alabama territory. Guarantano's fourth-down pass to Brandon Johnson is broken up and probably should've been picked off.
The Crimson Tide still lead 45-17 with 10:07 to play.
Guarantano is a 5th year D1 QB, and he still waits for the guy to come completely out of a curl route before he throws it. It’s unbelievable.
Guarantano throws behind an open Josh Palmer.
4th-and-13 for #Vols.
Tennessee turns the ball over after Guarantano misses Brandon Johnson...the two were jawing at each other all the way back to the sidelines and had to be separated by coaches.
Guarantano's pass is nearly picked off, but it doesn't matter. Alabama will take over after a turnover on downs.
Guarantano with an impressive first down run.
And with that dropped interception by the Bama defender Guarantano has secured the starting job til the end of the season.
The good thing about this big lead is the fools gold (credit @CoachJohnWild
) feeling about Guarantano.Bama applying zero pressure on any of the completions.
On 4-and-9, Alabama allows Guarantano to run for the 1st down. Seriously? #CollegeFootball #RollTide
This is 100% garbage time. WHY IS GUARANTANO IN THE GAME?? Develop your players for next year. He has had his chance.
Alabama 42, Tennessee 17
Back-to-back deep balls from Guarantano, the second is caught in the endzone by Palmer. @lafollettepress
Guarantano tries to go to Palmer down the sideline but Surtain able to swat it away.
Guarantano tries to go deep to Keyton, but defensive holding will give #Vols 10 yards and a first down.
I’ve wondered the same thing. I cannot believe they don’t have a quarterback on that roster better than Guarantano.
Anyone else see Mac mock Guarantano at end of 3rd after handoff or a was that just me?
Jared Guarantano is trash
We are losing 45-17 at the beginning of the 4th quarter. Why, Wby, Why are we still playing Guarantano?? Didn't we just have a discussion that the QB's need development??? What am I missing here??? Seriously?!?!????

It's becoming more and more apparent that Jeremy Pruitt is using Jarrett Guarantano as a cover for his poor coaching decisions. That's why he won't pull him.
